    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.

    Tender ribs; good wine. My husband had the Cubano with French onion soup. An excellent menu, one of the best I've seen! But the croquettes had way too much salt.

    Assume they were short on staff and didn't seem like anyone was in charge. Our waiter was covering multiple areas as were others. Had a reservation and were seated promptly and given water and menus. Then took 35 minutes and me flagging the waiter down to take drink and food order. Food was good but not to the level we have had here before.

    We had a great birthday celebration at Railcar. We got there in time for happy hour. The old fashioned, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and crab cakes were fantastic. Mains of schnitzel and dessert were also fantastic. Our waitstaff was engaging and helpful. I've seen some not great reviews for this place, but our experience was fantastic. Will be back soon.

    Service was slow and unengaging. We actually think our waiter forgot to put in our main course order and we were at our table a full hour before that part of our meal was served. The food was decent but not good enough to make up for the lack in energy and awareness of us even being there. For two people with one drink each the bill as over $100. We have had much better value in Omaha easily.

    Service was atrocious! Spilled water when they brought it to us. Which happens. Then took 30 minutes to take our order. 1 1/2 hours later we received our food. The food and service was definitely not worth 2 hours of my life. When our full rack of ribs came they were so burnt we could not eat them. We did ask to see the manager. She did comp the ribs and asked us if we wanted a new order. We immediately replied no because we did not want to wait another 90 minutes. She said they would be “to-go”. So we agreed. They arrived within 5 minutes. Crazy how the first order took so long and the 2nd was so quick. We arrived at 7:30 and they were not very busy so that was not an excuse. We would not go back.

    Got seated, ordered a drink, picked out appetizers and then watched our waiter walk by us for 15 minutes before I flagged him down to put in our appetizer order. ever looked at us and it is not a big space. Food was just ok. The appetizers were good, my wife's meal was good, mine was subpar and the ribs our granddaughter ordered were terrible. Overdone and grisly. 1st experience and will be our last.

    This was our first visit to Railcar, it was my Birthday dinner. I was surprised to be initially seated in the bar at a high top since I had made a reservation. I did request we be moved to a booth in the dining area and the staff accommodated that. Our waitress seemed to be overwhelmed (her section was not super busy). There was a lot of time that passed between when we ordered and 1. When the runners brought our food & 2. When our server returned to check on us. My water glass remained 1/2 empty while she filled water for the table across from us. I ordered salmon and my hubby had the steak & shrimp. Our proteins tasted good, however our fresh vegetables were very Al dente and completely lacking any flavor at all. Maybe this was just an off night since the reviews that led us to Railcar were all very good. I do have to say I can 100% recommend the Cronut sundae, it was amazing.
