Overall this is one of the better finds in Omaha in this price range. Brussel sprouts, Croque Madame, pancakes, potato pancakes, and Eggs Florentine were all very good. I do have two critiques that might help get the restaurant from a 4* to a 5* experience. [1] The bottomless brunch drinks was not well executed. Drinks were light, many missing garnishes, and I felt like it was a but of a game to see what we would actually get for the cost/pp (this is very common at brunch restaurants). The spicy bloody mary was good but missing the garnish it was incomplete. [2] This might be a regional thing, but the chicken and waffles seemed odd. To be fair, the guest who had it really liked it. Still, to me, it should have chicken wings or thighs and no gravy. If your guests like it the way you do it then by all means keep it. Just different from 'southern' style I've had.

I love this place, it is for a nice break. The food is great and a little different. Not just plain eggs and bacon. Our server was very nice and attentive.

Great place, drinks and food - but menu item names do not reflect the food you actually get. Fried chicken and waffles usually comes with a piece of chicken, not just a fried egg. Amazing drinks, though servers do seem to dilly dally on refills during bottomless brunch. Likely because they don't want all of us hammered at brunch.

Always love Railcar, especially the Medallions and Schnitzel. The Flap steak on our visit was especially tender and cooked just perfectly. . We were seated in the bar which caused some service delays as bartender had a very busy night getting all the drinks prepared. Only down side was our favorite CroNut Sundaes were overcooked and not up to the normal quality. Just a couple blips that caused us to rate this visit lower than previous ones.

We showed up at 7:00 for our reservation and they were completely out of Prime Rob which is why we went there. The ribs were excellent! Possibly our server, who was very nice, may have been new, kept forgetting things we asked for... water, bbq sauce, ketchup...management did step up and help out. I will definitely go back and try again

Appetizers reflected creative thinking and turned out stellar. Had the blackened brussel sprouts which were great. Entrees reflected same creativity. Will be back again soon!

Our party of four all had different items and we all enjoyed our dinner. The noise level in the dining room is conducive to pleasant conversation. Our waiter was pleasant and helpful, though there were a few times when she disappeared for an extended time-- I guess she was busy. We got there well before happy hour ended, but only after being seated in the dining room did we learn that happy hour was only in the bar area. This is not common in Omaha, so this should at a minimum be mentioned on the website or to a person making reservations or waiting for seating. But this won't stop us from coming back or recommending Railcar.

We really wanted to like our visit, but sadly, it wasn't good enough to inspire us to return.

The good : the service was outstanding. Our server had a great personality and she was a highlight of our meal. The other servers were friendly and very helpful as well.

The not so good: the food. Either the dish was overly salty (the prime rib special) or lacked flavor (the lobster risotto). The ribs were tough and the rub was too smoky. We did enjoy the lobster hush puppy appetizer and the cronut dessert. This is the second time we have been here- the first being brunch and this time being dinner. We left both times feeling the same way. There are a lot of good places to go in Omaha. Maybe our visits were simply off, but we would not recommend.

We've been several times and have not been disappointed ever. Went last Saturday night and tried some of the test kitchen dishes. Both dishes were outstanding and service was wonderful.

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

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.
