Outstanding! Friendly staff, great food and drinks in a lovely atmosphere. What more do you want?
We ate at Rail Stop as part of our ongoing exploration of new-ish restaurants in the Boston area. There seems to be lots of new places to try all of a sudden. I forgot to make a reservation and this was one of the few restaurants that we had not tried and had last meeting seating.
The restaurant is tucked against the NB HQ and has a lot of great decor and a nice looking bar. I thought the food was well prepared and delicious. There is a nice selection of lower end fare, hamburgers and pizza, the standard stable of apps and entrees. Nothing to that pushes the edge of culinary tastes but some times it is nice to have a steak or a lobster roll. The food was well executed and the service was good.
My husband had a good burger and my daughter had the lobster mac and cheese. I had a filet and it was delicious, slightly over cooked for my medium rare but fine.
I hope it gets a following since it is a large restaurant. I would go to the bar with a friend and the drink menu seemed broad and interesting.
Short ribs were very dry they needed more juice on them. The pickled onions overpowered the dish as that is all you tasted! The clam chowder was amazing.
Good wine selection
It is in the new sports complex next door to where the Bruins and Celtics practice. A sports bar vibe but really good food and outstanding mussels. Will go back
Although I made reservations thru open table, the restaurant could not accommodate us for our time slot. We ate in the bar which was fine and the server gave us a complimentary dessert for the inconvenience. The staff are very nice and overall we had a nice experience.
Great food and atmosphere. Service was pretty good. Food is a little overpriced for its quality. Overall great place to have dinner and a drink. Very much a bar vibe.
We had a lovely time. Food was yummy and the atmosphere is very cool. We had Polo, as our server. He was very attentive and a wonderful waiter. We would for sure come back again and request him as our server!
We love the rail stop and are grateful it is so close by! We can sit in different sections depending on our mood - outside, at or in the bar area, or in the restaurant - all are fun! And, the service is excellent! Thanks for another great dining experience!
The restaurant has a relaxed vibe. The tables are spread far enough apart so conversations can be had with normal voices. Our server Martin was great - knowledgeable about the menu with a good sense of humor. The food was excellent starting with the PEI mussels then to the cod and salmon entrees. A piece of chocolate mousse cake was shared for dessert. We will absolutely go back again.
Great place to meet an old friend for lunch. Good service, excellent food and convenient location.
I booked this restaurant for brunch without any expectation . Surprisingly, normal dishes are better than we expected. Shishito peppers came with flavorful ginger sauce (mixture of sake, soy sauce, mirin or honey and some spice). Cob salad's dressing did not bother ingredients (unfortunately, I did not understand what the dressing was). My wife liked her burger, too. We will come back here.
Super service, ask for a special dessert that they provide us with a huge smile that was presented to us by the cook. Amazing place.
Excellent food, good service easy to get to and park
First time here. A real gem. Xavier our waiter was awesome. Ordered a salad, crab cakes, and the seared scallops. Everything was delicious. Comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Location is nice, in the new inspiring neighborhood of Boston Landing. Right underneath warriors ice rink and new balance headquarter. Food was delicious, the salmon is okay but the cream that comes with it is superb. Service could have been better with water and general checkin. Overall nice place, next time I’m coming in for a drink or two
This place is always good. Had my usual filet mignon. Tried the buffalo chicken tempoura meatball appetizer and it was excellent.
Absolutely amazing! Our server was wonderful, knew all about the menu, and didn’t rush us in the slightest. The cocktails were so delicious. I will absolutely be back!
Each dish was well presented, the waiter knew the menu well, everything was delicious.
The night we were there it was a little hotter inside than outside. The outside dining had a very nice set up and would recommend either.
Generous portions, delicious food and outstanding service!
Thank you Martin, great service. To the manager on duty we look forward to you not being employed at the Rail Stop much longer. She was horrible.
This was my first visit to this restaurant and although the A/C was not functioning the staff was certain to accommodate us by making sure our glasses were filled with water. The level of attention we received was great. The staff was warm and personable. The food was delicious. The muscles were my favorite of the night. I will definitely be a repeat customer. The area in which the restaurant is located is really nice and newly developed.
Cocktails were great, apps and entrees were timely and cooked perfectly, and great service
I never give a restaurant 5 stars, but we hit gold when we dined here. We met for a family dinner on a Sat night, and either due to our timing (we eat early), the heat, or the fact that it's a holiday weekend, the place was quiet, which helped make the evening special. We tried a large # of menu items, and each one was fantastic: not one disappointed. A couple of stands outs however were the cheddar and pepper jelly appetizer, the lobster mac and cheese, and the white clam bucatini. The last dish in particular was what I have always wanted linguini and clam sauce to be, but am always disappointed by even at high end restaurants: not here. In addition, the drinks were creative and fantastic. On top of the ones we ordered, the bartender sent over a couple that he felt we might enjoy and they were dead on. Between the fantastic food and the personal attention of the server and bartender, Xavier and Eli respectfully (I hoped I spelled their names correctly), it was a perfect, and very memorable, night out with the family. We will definitely return and highly recommend it!
Went to Rail Stop based on an internet search. The server was attentive and the food was well presented and tasty. We sat outside on a warm night and it was a very pleasant evening. It's kind of a low key place that's near the city and there's plenty of free parking. We both really enjoyed the experience. I'd go again and I would recommend it to a friend.
Great food. Tremendous server in Robert, thank you again. We'll be back soon.
Great food in a terrific new venue!
Lovely experience from beginning to end.
Very pleasant and comfortable place. Delicious, beautifully presented food. Excellent wait staff
Perfection. Food and drinks were amazing along with their selection and presentation. Really enjoyed the layout as well.
Enjoyable dining with friends. Staff welcoming and very helpful with suggestions of wine and descriptions of dishes . Very receptive to alternating entrees sides.
Service was great , the chicken sandwich was delicious . I didn’t want fries so I was given fried asparagus . Yummy! The draft cider on ice was just perfect . Great table with view
Matt, our waiter was exceptional and made recommendations that were delicious! He described the food perfectly and because of our experience with him, we will be back and will bring our friends!
Everything was phenomenal, from the service, the food and atmosphere. The Railstop has become a new favorite for me and my boyfriend. Cant wait to dine again :)
Waiter was great, place was quiet and the food was delicious
Excellent as usuals. The mussels and bucatini with clams were exceptional and the Giannone chicken was juicy and flavorful.
Absolutely love the Railstop! We went for the first time for Mother’s Day and the food was amazing (especially the bacon wrapped dates). They even gave free apps and free dessert for my mom! The staff was super friendly and we will definitely be coming back.
The staff was extremely friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Food was very tasty and well executed for the most part. The fish dishes (cod and halibut) were cooked to perfection. The prime rib was a little disappointing. It was tender and cooked to temperature but wasn’t as flavorful as I would have expected. All in all, it’s a great place to eat with friends and family.
I’ve been twice. It’s nice. The beer list is decent- could use some expansion. Steak prices were high for portion size but cooked perfectly.
Always love coming here as the cocktails are amazing, service is great, atmosphere is refined and outside seating. Great times did business with friends or (like us) the family.
Amazing waitress Sandra. She was lovely! We will definitely go back and ask for her!!!
