Food was Okay. The prime rib was chewy and had way to much fat. Not the best cut of meat for 36.

Hadn’t been to Railcar for some time and was very impressed with the menu offering. Would definitely return for another meal. Service and food was well worth a return visit.

Last minute date on a Monday evening and this was the perfect place. It wasn't too busy, we were seated and helped right away. The food and dessert was amazing. We were pleased with the whole experience.

Seemed a bit short staffed for brunch. Still a great meal and would still go back for sure. Just wouldn’t recommend for those who expect waiters around most of the meal.

We chose to eat from the Happy Hour menu as we planned on spending the afternoon into the evening - it was so fun to try different items. The Duo dip was served with warm tortilla chips and very tasty! We also had the pork belly tostados - so fresh and good. Of course you can't not try the pretzel crusted cheese curds - served with a sauce that I didn't need because the cheese curds themselves were so perfect. I had the Railcar Hack salad and my husband ordered The Boiler. I really liked the freshness of the sesame peanut vinaigrette which is also served on the pork belly tostados.

We venture out two or three times a week looking for a new favorite place but we came up empty here. We made reservations because of the apparent popularity of this place and it is popular. Our host forgot to pick up two menus when we were escorted to our table and promised to return with one but he never did. Our waitress was sweet and not overly attentive, we had to stop her at least twice for more drinks. The meals were mediocre at best and not something I would return for. It is a quaint little place that would be great for families or a small group of friends. Overall, we weren’t impressed.

Visited during restaurant week on a weeknight. We made reservations online and there was no wait at all. The prix fixed options were great. There was a mini board that tasted like a deconstructed Reuben, and I had toast with butternut squash and prosciutto, it was delicious! My main course was lobster risotto with asparagus and charred Brussel sprouts. It was creamy and delicious, the asparagus was cooked to perfection! Dessert was so yummy, key lime pie or chocolate peanut butter pie, either with homemade graham cracker crust. The perfect end to a delicious meal. Oh, and half off bottles of wine made it a wonderful meal. I will come back again to taste more delicious meals.

Railcar is a favorite of ours and has been for years. However, yesterday when we went for brunch, things seemed a little chaotic and some of the staff appeared overwhelmed. I had made a reservation via Open Table for 5 at 11:00; we arrived a little early and were told it would be a few minutes as they were waiting for the people at our table to leave. It seemed very buy--more so than we have seen it in awhile. At 11:10, my husband went to the hostess again to ask how much longer and if we could be seated at an empty table we could see. To our surprise, we were told she had canceled our reservation--I guess a mix up with another customer. Not happy! So the 5 of us were seated in a booth for 4. It was pretty tight; luckily we had thinner teens with us. The food was amazing as usual, and our waiter was great. But maybe more training for hostesses or more staff would prevent things like this happening in the future.

Service great at brunch.
Scrambled eggs came cold.
Awkward coffee cups, looking like a saucer should come with it... just get some mugs. No salt &pepper at each table, had to ask for it.

Main dish was fair, appetizer was excellent , had to eat in the bar to get the happy hour prices. Sangria was fair, staff was very nice to acknowledge our 4th anniversary with an ice cream dessert.

We'll be back but it will be in the bar at happy hour.

Another great experience at the Railcar. Employee interaction and service were great. Nathan was outstanding as our waiter. The food was very good for all members of our table. Both the service and the food will keep the Railcar on our list of top places when in Omaha

Seated in the quiet back room which is great for my husband who has hearing aids; it's quiet but we never feel forgotten. The service has always been excellent and this visit was no exception. We've always been greeted promptly, seated right away and drink orders in hand in no time. The food is outstanding and perfectly portioned. We especially enjoy the seasonal selections.
One of our all time favorite places; HIGHLY recommend.

We usually love the Railcar. We took friends from Nashville and were so excited to share our experience of Th Railcar. Have to say we were not that thrilled with the food this time. Cherry ribs were dry. Paella was so so. Thai chicken lavash was excellent as usual.

Prime rib was marinated in something bad smelling. Both my son and got I’ll from it!! Over priced and noisy, loud rock music blasting. The server mixed up our drink order and was not too interested in us.

The French Onion soup and salmon was the best I ever tasted. Excellent, including the wine. Desserts were a bit disappointing, but they were eaten. Didn't really like being across from a service station. The table had a splinter on the side and when I sat down, I snagged my blouse. Very friendly and knowledgeable service staff.

My salmon and drink took a very long time to arrive. When my salmon entree finally arrived, it was raw in the center. The manager was very apologetic and sincere. The waiter not so much.

Lots of seafood options, not a lot of non seafood apps. The bread bowl that holds the hot spinach and artichoke dip is parmesan crusted. So good! The crab cakes were full of crab, not a lot of breadcrumb binder.

Every time we have been in here it seems that drinks, non alcoholic, are a last priority. We asked for a few extra items, cream, and never got it. At least from our server. Otherwise overall it is a great place.
