    From the moment we walked in the reception was cold. The hostess was rude. We made a reservation and still they did not have a table ready. The wait foe the food was ridiculous and when we did receive the food it was terrible. There are many amazing restaurants in Omaha and this is not one of them. Don’t waste your money!

    The meal itself was high quality as usual. I was disappointed to hear that they had discontinued the fritter bread served tableside at brunch. Also had to remind server about several things we asked for. Have had much better Rail Car experiences before.

    First time visiting this establishment & was disappointed in the fact that I’ve tried to order two specific items that were on the menu & they no longer had it. There’s no variety of meals that sounded appetizing. It was a group of 5 women in my party and one lady literally just had water b/c there was nothing on the menu that sounded appeasing.

    First time there and was pleasantly surprised by the food quality and service. Never sure what to expect from a "strip mall" restaurant but this one was very good.

    Food was mediocre, We had Nolan on and another girl as our servers Nolan was great, he was pleasant and attentive ,the other girl, never caught her name seemed absolutely annoyed to even be there. I get it’s Saturday and there are busy, but it took almost an hour to get our food, which was just ok. I heard great things about that place and I don’t mind paying a lot for dinner but I expect it to be better than that and much quicker service if I’m going to pay around $300.

    The restaurant was very full and our server did a great job of taking care of us. The food however was not the quality it normally is. 2 of us requested our salmon to be prepared a little more toward done & both were raw. That was a disappointment.

    Had heard great things about Railcar and unfortunately was disappointed. went on Sunday at 11 and they are out of milk (how does that happen) and their breakfast nachos. Nothing was that great to make me go back and it all came out cold or barely warm. Not hot at all.

    Table of 6 with a reservation was seated directly across from open door bathroom! Disgusting! I should have refused the table but it was busy and we were on a timed schedule. First off our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. Best part of our dining for sure. Food over-priced and very average at best. Took over 20 min to receive bar drinks. Food was meh at best. This is the 3rd time eating here and probably the last. Just can’t see paying those prices for an under average experience. Too many other choices for dining especially with a reservation. Disappointing….

    This was a second chance trip , this time for brunch after reading good reviews. Unfortunately we were disappointed again. It wasn’t busy , but food took a long time to arrive. Husbands portions were that of an appetizer, and my pancakes were burned. I was shocked they were plated and served when they were obviously black. Wait staff was great, no issues there. Needless to say we had to stop somewhere else and eat after we left here. I know this place was great in the past so not sure what’s happening in the kitchen.

    We were visiting from out of state and I was looking for a place for a family meal. I booked a reservation based on the reviews and menu. The food was good, but rich. This place is good if you are looking to indulge, which we did. I had the prime rib and it was excellent. The poutine was not what I expected since it didn’t really have the traditional gravy, but had some sauce a lots of melted cheese and the potatoes were large chunks. It was good nonetheless. The cocktails were ok, I had a Sangria which was very dry and missing some of the fruit flavor. The old fashioned was light almost diluted. We went on a Saturday evening. The service was great and I didn’t not experience any issues as other reviewers had mentioned.
