My friend and I went for her birthday and had a great experience. That staff is super nice and the restaurant is well-maintained! I’ve already recommended it to a friend!

From the appetizers on it was a great experience. The staff and food were outstanding and they definitely went the extra mile to keep things sanitized during covid. We will definitely e returning.

All the food came out burned. The Lemon Ricotta pancake was flat and without taste. Made it right by taking $ off the bill.

My wife and I decided to try a new spot, and Railcar did not disappoint. We got there just in time for a couple of happy hour drinks and appetizers. The brussels sprouts app is really good. If you go on the nights that they have prime rib, get it. This was one of the best prime ribs that I have had in a long time. Service was really good. We will be back!

The service was outstanding. The food was absolutely the best we’ve had in a long time and we love trying new places around town to eat at. We ordered the clam and shrimp bisque and it was the best soup we’ve ever eaten. The drinks were delicious! We didn’t have to wait for long on anything and our server was very knowledgeable and articulate on knowing what was good to eat! We will definitely be back! Kids eat half price Sunday, Monday and Tuesday which is cool too.

Wonderful dining experience as always! We went for our favorite appetizer, the Brussels sprouts, but chose different entrees than usual, the baby back ribs and the fillet medallions. Both were amazing, and my husband couldn't stop raving about those ribs all evening. The service was superb, and the atmosphere perfect for conversation.

The Rail Car is in compliance with Cova virus seating and it worked very well using a reservation for a comfortable setting. Food was great and service was polite and accommodating! Higher end pricing for the luncheon menu and they use disposable menus (great idea)!

Did not care for our tiny table tucked in the corner. This might work at a diner but expect more for the level of food served. Food was good and service was great!

We always enjoy Railcar. Very impressed by the cleanliness and the staff was all wearing well fitting masks - correctly. Really appreciate they are taking the safety of all seriously! The food was great, although the menu was a little limited. Would like to see more vegetarian options.

Celebrated our anniversary with dinner. Great experience. Unfortunately I forgot our servers name but she was outstanding. Food was great. Went to Spezia in Omaha last year and was very disappointed. Not this year. Great job Railcar, we'll be back.

This may be the best kept secret....unfortunately!! Why aren’t more people raving about this spot! Most ingredients are locally sourced and fresh. The truffle fries and cheese curds were perfectly cooked and had amazing flavor. The wagyu burger was so flavorful with fresh roll and the Cuban sandwich was perfect all that needs said. Don’t be fooled by the awkward location and decor.

I had never been here before, but had heard about it from friends. They were right. The decor is really neat, the food was delicious and our server, Nolan, really knew the menu. A couple of us had the salmon, one person had the Airplane chicken, another had the chicken and goat cheese sandwich. One of us had the cherry ribs and they thought they were dry, but overall we really enjoyed it. We would go back.

Decided to eat here based on reviews from OpenTable. Was looking forward to the prime rib, but when we got there - the chef decided not to serve it because it was overdone. I admire that!

We ended up having a nice bottle of wine. I had the Duroc chop and my husband had the short rib. Both were really good. The salads beforehand were delicious.

The service was outstanding. We would definitely eat here again.

I went for first time to have dinner the other night. I had the rock fish and my boyfriend had the salmon. Both dishes were outstanding and the waitress was kind and attentive. I liked it so much I took my Mom there for lunch a couple of days later. Same experience, great food, great service.

We needed room for a dozen people near the office, and some interesting food and good craft beers. The service was prompt and friendly, the test kitchen menu was delicious, and the craft beer selection, while short, was pretty good. Would definitely go back, especially to see what the chef puts on the test kitchen menu next time.
