    Server was friendly and welcoming. Abundant food choices, good wine and non-alcoholic selections as well. We enjoyed soup and salad, and will definitely return for dinner. Save room for dessert! The cakes were delicious!

    We enjoyed our meal so much! My husband had the Ribeye special which was so deliciously grilled and reasonably priced. My daughter and I had paninis that were so good. The Caesar salad was so tasty too! My youngest enjoyed her kid’s cheese pizza too. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will eat at Rails again!

    This place is not to bad, after reading all the reviews I expected a bit more. The place was cozy and quiet, the waitress was very helpful. My only complaint would be the food. We arrived for our reservation at 6 and we were out by 625. I was hoping for a romantic dinner but the place did not deliver. We ordered our drinks and appetizers and by the time I was taking my 2nd scoop of my soup the main dish was arriving. The food was OK, but for the prices I expected more. The food came out warm and as fast as we received it led me to belive it been sitting waiting to be served. We passed on dessert and decided it wasn't worth staying any longer. In and out in 25 mins, left very disappointed.

    Service was super fast. Almost too fast. I know there was a tri-athalon in town and they were expecting to be busy. Felt rushed.

    Excellent food and service - everyone loved their salad of choice. Two of my guests were from Austin and they raved about their meal! The rest of us had been before, and were pleased as always.

    Rails never disappoints. Our server, Callie was kind, very knowledgeable and attentive. The prime rib was tender and juicy. The dessert tray was tempting as always, and my choice of the banana pudding was delightful, and gluten free! Highly recommend Rails. It is one of the best restaurants in Kerrville.

    Great tomato bisque and shrimp pasta. Attentive service. One of the three best restaurants in Kerrville, which is relative, I suppose. Definitely on a higher level than most places locally. I’m always guaranteed to be pleased with the amount I spend vs the quality of the experience.

    Journey was very friendly, attentive, and efficient. The food was excellent. The only suggestion I have is that at least one main salad should be meat-free. We live in San Antonio, and Rails is a “Destination Restaurant” for us!

    The ambience was wonderful, just as described online. The serving staff was amazing, some of the best service that we’ve had. The desserts were fabulous, but the portions small. The main entrées were not the quality of food that one would expect for the prices. The salads were not fresh, greens a bit wilted. The beef marsala was not prepared as described in the menu. It was lacking scallions and Portabella mushrooms. It basically consisted of slow cooked beef swimming in thick brown gravy, and a scoop of rice in the center of the plate.
