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.

Great food, atmosphere, and a very attentive waitstaff. It’s loud because of the brick walls and concrete floor, but very worth a visit.

The grilled chicken that was on the salad seems to have been pre-packed frozen, not fresh.

Fresh food, exceptional service, and a relaxed environment. The food is so much more than the "meat and three" like you get at most chain restaurants. It's inventive, fresh, and very well prepared.

The ahi tuna flatbread what just not good. It was large chunks of tuna and not much else on flat bread that seemed to come straight out of a package. The service was excellent, but overall nothing else was very inspired or even memorable.

Even though an unprecedented snow closed the whole town for 3 days, dinner Friday night exceeded our expectations. Fresh ingredients, unique menu items, great service. I hosted out-of-towners from CA and they were impressed!

Nice ambiance and pretty decent service. Only reasons I don’t give them 5 stars:

1. Table wobbled - please fix table 10
2. The entrees were served lukewarm... still tasty, but would have been better if they had been served hot.

Will visit them again!

The food is always amazing and absolutely delicious. The cook James has a skill most hope to master, hands down the best cook there. The service is always up to pay and everyone is so polite and nice.

We met our nephew here for lunch. He and his wife go there from Hartselle on a regular basis. It was just superb! The food was fresh and prepared so well. No problems at all and very generous portions. We will definitely be return customers!

We had to meet a friend from Nashville and found RailYard online. It was such a pretty place! Our waiter was great. He checked on us regularly, suggested good things, and was helpful! Good service is hard to find & I was very impressed! Food was good and we had a nice visit. I recommend RailYard.

A never fail for a great meal. Shrimp and grits - outstanding. Grits collards and sausage - always, any burger- a homerun. Duck breast or duck tacos - rich and meaty. Get the creamed spinach with Asiago - smooth, creamy, homey and rich.

Food usually is very unique and has a good flavor. Unfortunately, my steak was overcooked this last time which was not a huge deal since it was not very expensive. Will be back. Glad to see that they are open once again. They have been missed.

First time eating at the RailYard. My meal was good except temperature wise. It wasn’t very hot. The others in my party said their food was good and they had no complaints. We def will be back to give it another try. Our waiter was great and very attentive.

This trip to The Railyard was not nearly as good as in the past. We had four different dishes which were over salted or under salted. I've always recommended the Railyard, but will definitely not be doing so in the future.

Stopped in with my family (two kids) while in town for a soccer tournament. The distaff was very friendly and the food was amazing. They even had a kids menu for my picky eater. Would definitely recommend the Yankee, bistro salad and the beer cheese dip for the pretzel.

We’ve been debating passing up our usual “go-to” date night locale for Railyard, and SO glad we finally did. Food was great, drinks were great, service was fantastic (Mari is absolutely on top of her game). We’ll be back very soon.
