Little hard to find. Entrance in the front and the back. Drinks were excellent! Mostly high-end fresh bar food (sandwiches, burgers, tacos) with a few full meal options.

We had a great experience and the food was excellent! We had a party of 5 and I would highly recommend the Ribeye or the Scallops!

Filet was dry. Dessert was very dry. Brussels sprouts were very non tender. Brought new friends there because we have enjoyed it several times before but won’t be returning in near future. Heard there was new management from a friend and said it’d gone downhill. If so, I concur

Apps were good. Filet was tire rubber. Ordered medium. Almost tasted like roast from a crock pot. Anyone can have an off night, I guess. Cool place though and friendly staff.

This was our second visit. We forgot how noisy it was. That would be the only negative. I had the Prime Rib which was awesome. Note, the reason we came back was because they were out of the Prime Rib the first visit. Our reservations were at 8 both times.
My wife had their salad which was nothing special.
The service was fantastic.

Was staying the night in Decatur on business and just wanted a nice restaurant that showcased a little bit of the town--no chain restaurant.

Checked out the reviews and RailYard popped up! Asked at the hotel--again they were adamant--Railyard. So we went.

This place is a total gem for the city of Decatur. It always pleases me to have a non-chain showcase the best a city has to offer, and Railyard does not disappoint.

Just go there. You'll thank me later.

Pretty good food, had to wait a half hour for our table which made us have to rush at the end because they were closing. Service was great. Place is a little loud for date nite but over all we would definitely go back again.

It took forever to be seated even with a reservation, and the hostess had already thought we’d been seated when we went to ask where we were on the seat list. So basically if we hadn’t asked about our table we never would have been sat after we checked in. The food and our server was great but getting it was a struggle.

We were looking for a great place to eat that we had never been to before and happened upon The RailYard on OpenTable. Totally was worth the drive to Decatur! The food was outstanding, our server was great and the drinks were top-notch! Also loved the feel of the place. Awesome experience; we'll definitely be back!

Great food, service. Very busy and people waiting to get tables but we were seated almost immediately because of an Open Table reservation. Variety of fresh food, drinks, very reasonably priced. Definitely would go back.

My husband and I had dinner here while we were on vacation. The total experience was great. I had the bbq shrimp and grits. They were cooked to perfection and very tasty. My husband had the grilled prime rib. He opted for the carrots and fried okra as his sides. They were very delicious. We will definitely come back if we come through town again.

We ask to be moved to a larger table for 8 people. The hostess would not move us. When we left she had four people sitting at the 8 top we ask to be moved too. We will never be back. We had 6 people crammed into a small table. It was very uncomfortable.

Made reservations for bar which railyard said we could but no spots were reserved. Had to wait until spots were vacated. So much for making reservations. Everything else was great as usual.
