Great food and good service. Slight misunderstanding when we said we wanted two entrees to have bacon and only one had it, but other than that everything was great!

Second visit and was as good as we remembered. We had Shrimp and Scallop Risoto dish and the Prime Rib. Service was great, drinks were good and we enjoyed the evening.

Our visit was completely an unplanned spontaneous outing. We googled restaurants in our area, and Railcar came up with great reviews, so we made a reservation. We were seated right away, and greeted immediately by our waiter. Who, by ththe way, was amazing. The menu was a it hard to read, but it had great selections, and not overwhelming with too many choices. The prices seemed a bit high, but when the food came it was obvious that the prices were well worth it. This place is a nice little surprise in the middle of a small strip mall. From the outside it looks like a bar and grill. You'd never know how great it is just by looking at the outside. Very nice, great food, service and ambiance. We will definitely be back!

The appetizer and main course were very good. The desserts were less than impressive. Would definitely return, but wouldn't order dessert. The server, Nolan, was very attentive and knowledgeable regarding the menu.

We were seated immediately, our server was friendly, efficient, and patient. We had 3 children with us.
A 4 yr old, 2 yr old, and 6 month old. My 2 year old Grandson knocked over a glass of water. Our server was there immediately, cleaned up in seconds, and all was good again. We all enjoyed our meals, did not hear anyone complain about anything, and made for an enjoyable Brunch.
The noise level could become annoying, if expecting a quiet brunch. The tables and booths are quite close together. Definitely going for maximum capacity. we all had a good time and not one negative comment or concern. Once again, our server was in the A++ category.
We will definitely return and would recommend the restaurant.

Always a great meal at Railcar! Quality ingredients, delicious flavors, and tweaked just enough to be interesting without being distracting. Can't wait to see what they come up with next! And the wait staff is always courteous, enthusiastic and seems like they are having a great time serving others. Win- win!

This is a nice place. I have been here a handful of times for Sunday brunch. It has seemed to be inconsistent though. Of the different times I have been here, they typically bring out a croissant for the table. One time they forgot it, one time it was cinnamon sugar, and one time it was regular. The endless bloody mary's for a penny after the first two are good, but the service is typically very slow for them, as they probably do not want to give out any more than needed. Our last waitress was very nice and speedy, but that is typically not the case. Overall, this is a good brunch place for the price.

The food was wonderful. Drinks are strong and that’s a good thing. I really enjoyed our waiter, Nolan. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and had great suggestions for our appetizer and my main dish, which I was leaning towards, he just sealed the deal for me. I can be indecisive. I look forward to coming back.

Happy hour specials were fantastic. We shared two different flatbreads and each was very good. Great service. One recommendation would be to add a couple of vegan items to happy hour menu and main menu.

My recent visit to Railcar Modern American Kitchen was highly anticipated and it didn’t disappoint! Their dishes are tasty and their wait staff was very knowledgeable on menu items. When deciding between 2 dishes, their recommendation was spot on. Don’t pass this place up, you’ll be glad you stopped.

For my birthday my wife took me to the Railcar, which is one of the nicer restruants in our neighborhood. The atmosphere was friendly, food is excellent, and we will certainly eat there again. Price is a bit more than average so we won't be eating there every week, but overall it is well worth it.
The service was very good and the server was knowledgeable and friendly. My only complaint was that our appetizer plates sat on our table for 10 - 15 minutes after we'd obviously finished with them. I finally had to ask her to remove them. A small detail, maybe not worth mentioning, but when you are spending well over $100 for two I expect a little more attention to detail. (And no, I'm not from New York.)
Bottom line, Railcar is a great restaurant and I would recommend it highly!

So disappointed that they aren't as good as they used to be. The brussels sprouts use to come in a cast iron skillet full of gooey and carmelized goodness and now they are in a bowl barely boiled and hardly seasoned. New chef? Get the old one back!
Great server and he tried to make the night fun but the food is not what it use to be.

The waitress never refilled my water once until the very end. I had to get water out of my fiancé’s glass until I finally asked the waitress almost at the end. The Korean bbq and Asian slaw were outstanding. The ribs were superb; however, the fries and slaw that came with the ribs were just average.
