Rails...a Cafe at the Depot
Great food & friendly staff
Melissa has the best restaurant in Kerrville.
Excellent atmosphere and the food is amazing. I’ve never been disappointed with Rails.
Excellent, as always.
Very nice cozy place. Food was very good. I ordered a cup of soup and as it was very delicious, I ordered another one. They charged 1 bowl instead of 2 cups whuch was cheaper. It was a juce gesture. Not only that they gave another cup for free as we liked it. We did the reservation beforehand and there was no waiting when we reached there about 10 mins before our scheduled time. Server was very courteous. I definitely recommend for this restaurant. Space inside is little crampy but otherwise it’s a nice place. If weather is good I’ll recommend to sit outside.
It was an extremely enjoyable dining venue. My wife, teenaged son and I enjoyed everything about the place. The food and drinks were wonderful. We plan on going back every time we are in the vicinity of Kerrville.
...a fabulous place for an intimate lunch or dinner. Exquisitely prepared dishes highlight the meal; desserts are amazing. Just go!
Waiter seemed overwhelmed. There were 11 of us. Took about 15 minutes to get water. Not everyone was served together. 1 person in our party didn’t receive his food until everyone else had almost finished. Food was cold and lacked seasoning. Not the best experience we’ve had here.
Great restaurant, and has been for years. A must stop if you are in Kerrville or in the area!
The food was all excellent and our waiter was great. Table bussers were a little too anxious to clear everything away, maybe because the table size for 4 people was too small. We love this place. We are in town for a month and have visited 3 times in 3 weeks.
Coming in from Austin with 2 car groups, our timing changed 3 times after reservations. The process to change was simple and very effective. We had a lovely table perfect for our group, and service and food were exceptional. The only difficulty was choosing from such an extensive menu of wonderful choices. No one was disappointed in any way. Thank you for a delightful experience!
As always, the service and food were great! This is one my favorite restaurants in Kerrville.
We were celebrating my Dad's 94th birthday. The food was excellent and we had a great time.
First visit, but it won’t be the last. Excellent food and service, our waiter Sam is the best. Everything cooked to perfection. Only two things that need improvement are the bakery is closed at 5 pm and there is no bar. You can however get beer and wine. Neither of these items will keep us from returning though.
What a lovely restaurant! We sat outside as the weather was gorgeous. Our waiter was very attentive and she kept our drinks full and made sure we lacked for nothing. This is pretty rare when sitting outside, in my opinion. The food was absolutely perfect, too. I wouldn't hesitate to bring children, if you were sitting outside, otherwise, it's pretty mature!
Great food. Super atmosphere. Highly recommend
All was excellent.
Rails is our favorite place to eat in Jerrville. From the menu to the atmosphere to the staff to the on-sight owners, not a thing we would change.
Rails never disappoints, excellent food, service, and a wide wine selection always provide a great experience.

We have now eaten at the Rails twice. Both times were wonderful experiences. Our last visit was on Valentine's Day and despite the crowds and wait staff being stretched to the max, everyone was friendly, the wait for our food was not that much longer, and when the food arrived it was great. The Rails is our new "go to" place for a special evening out.
We are new to the area and have found our new favorite restaurant right in the heart of Kerrville. We have been there twice and both times both food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. Our waiter was friendly paid attention to every detail to ensure we had a pleasant experience.
We had a party of 5 adults, a 5 year old and a 3 year old. They were very accommodating in getting the food to the young ones ASAP. They had a nice Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley Oregon- we enjoyed 2 bottles! The food overall was good- our only disappointment was the salmon. 3 of us ordered it and we all felt it had been way overcooked- it was very dry. Aside from that, the food was good- I wouldn't say outstanding but good and I felt reasonably priced. We are from out of town but if we were in Kerrville in the future I would eat there again but definitely try something besides the fish.
Every thing was good other than having to ask for water and tea to be refilled (slow service once our food was out). Sam was not our waiter but very attentive while I was waiting on my date to arrive and after dinner he helped us with to go box.
The food was absolutely outstanding. The service was really good and the old depot setting was very cool. We will definitely go back and would highly recommend to friends for a great casual dining experience.
The Rails was a delightful surprise! A small, cozy restaurant with a bright but peaceful atmosphere. Food and service were great. Desserts to die for. We were just there for a dinner out, but it would be a nice place for a special date or some other special occasion.
Great food and great place to go with friends.
I reserved a table through OPEN table and confirmed the second request. I then called the day of an hour before to remind the event would be a birthday and the time. When we arrived, the table was not ready for 15 minutes with no apology. I pointed out that there had been three confirmations made for the reservation and the wait was inexcusable. We were simply told they confused the birthday with another crew and gave our table to them. At a minimum, a manager should have come over and addressed the error and / or our drinks (non alcoholic ) comped. For this reason, I will not recommend Rails. A shame because our server was excellent.
A wonderful evening spent with my daughter who was in town visiting. Both our meals were delicious & the service was great. I had the Osso Bucco which was melt in your mouth tender with perfectly sautéed spinach. She had the Artichoke Chicken Alfredo which filled the plate. Afterwards we shared a sumptuous chocolate cake with strawberries. A perfect way to end the meal.
Wonderful historic setting. Fine menu. Excellent service & recommendations from Sam M. I would recommend this restaurant for most of the above reasons, noted on the website.
Part of Christmas gift for wife
Suggest tortilla chips would be better with spinach artichoke dip
Sam is a superior waiter. We go for terrific food and wine as well as to visit with SAM!
We were happy to see that our expectations were met regarding the quality of the food, timeliness of food preparation, and courtesy and professionalism of wait staff (Sam). Our order consisted of a house Cabernet, iced tea (surprisingly good), crab cakes and shrimp for one main dish and bacon wrapped steak and barbecued shrimp for the other main dish. Hot foods were served hot and cold foods were served cold. All in all, it was a very pleasant evening and we both agreed to come back again.
Great choices. Delish dishes we have Rails cater our chamber banquet each year. Wanted to try it in a private setting. Did not disappoint! Fabulous
Our anual December stop. This place never disapoints!
This is the second time we have dined here while visiting Kerrville. It was just as amazing this time as our first time! Sam was our server, and he was absolutely FANTASTIC! Polite, attentive, excellent timing, excellent knowledge of the menu, friendly and funny, and made the dinner even better! The menu is varied and the specials are always the best! Everyone loved their food. We will be back again when we are in Kerrville. Reservations are a good idea for this popular and delicious restaurant.
We had a wonderful dinner for a group of 6 ladies. Our waitress, Holly, was perfectly attentive and pleasant. The food was delicious and the ambiance quaint.
Fantastic food and decent wine selection. Lovely outdoor patio, but right on the main road. Highly recommend!
Another Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat.
Staff was attentive, food & wine were great.
More than enough food on this set Thanksgiving menu.
Fantastic wait staff and restaurant. Great ambiance! Nice place to celebrate a special occasion
