    Prices are not commensurate with food quality. My hamburger was 33.00, and it was only OK. This place is really just a burger and salad joint with luxury pricing.

    Rails has been a Kerrville “go to” place for years to enjoy and to take guests. You could depend on the quality and consistency of the menu. Although the menu is relatively unchanged, the quality and consistency seems to longer be assured. Earlier this month I had Osso Buco which was so dry and tough it was barely edible. Last evening I had another old favorite Pasta Pesto Portobello and the pesto sauce was like flavored water. The meal was virtually tasteless.

    Choose outside if weather is good- amazing sunset. Guys had pasta and I had a bison burger with GF bun- all tasty. Server was busy but good- patient with wine recommendations and we ended up with a lovely Italian blend. Loved the historic interior.

    Our waitress was attentive and the food was good. I was not totally pleased with my fish dish that I have had on several occasions before as it was too sour for my taste. They offered to make it right but I passed on that. My husbands medallions were excellent. For a Valentine's dinner it was good service.

    Our waiter was very good. Knowledgeable about the food and wine, offered several tastes of the wines until I found the one I preferred. He also made a switch on the menu The center, a filet with Bourbon sauce was cooked as requested and very flavorful. The Spinach, while fresh, lacked seasoning. The Salmon appetizer was good though the Cream Cheese seemed heavy. The Osso Buco was good but not great. The wine by the glass list was interesting and very fairly priced. We would return.

    I had the soup if the day and a salad. Both were fantastic, the potato cheese soup was velvety smooth and tasty. The salad was very fresh with a delicious light dressing. The only item that can be improved is the bread. It was tasteless and the olive oil was strong. Butter would be better. The iced tea was very fresh.

    The Sweeter Side of Rails is the better of the two. Rails at the Depot, being nearby, got my reservation of where to have lunch. There was nothing wrong with the lunch, but nothing very special either. The linguine was fine, the white sauce was average with the amount of spinach added to it being only a few leaves as specks of green. The chicken was okay, but on the verge of being too well-done, it was getting dry. I certainly ate it all, but remembered the last time as being better.
