Railcar Modern American Kitchen
First visit at Railcar. Great food & service! Will definitely return for another meal.
Would have been nice not to have been seated in the bar area. The table behind us was very loud and we had a hard time just talking to each other.
I have been there multiple time's and when my sister and brother in law asked where would like to go for my birthday it was a given. They could enjoy the wonderful food as well, cocktails and service .
Service was great, out server's food recommendations were on point! Our group really enjoyed the evening.
The restaurant was ok and fairly clean, but had a weird smell the whole time. Food was overpriced and bland. We ordered a burger and steak. Staff was overall very quick and helpful.
Quick service. Friendly atmosphere. Go here for our anniversary every year. Never disappointed. Great food.
Absolutely delicious! Attentive, friendly and funny service. Kid-friendly too. It was an excellent choice for dinner!
Anytime I go to this restaurant my experience is perfect
Never had a bad meal here. Took another first-timer couple. One ordered pasta dinner and the other the ribs. Both were fantastic.
Appetizer was phenomenal. Service was slow. They were very busy, so I understand. It took well over an hour to get our food, so don't go there if you don't have the time. My husband's fries looked like burnt cardboard and tasted like it too. Oil probably was very old. I ordered snapper. It was ok. Nothing like the gulf coast. Not much flavor and a bit rubbery
We had a wonderful time a very great server. Had two appetizers that were both delicious tomato bread and the crabcakes. I ordered the salmon and my husband ordered steak and shrimp. Mine was absolutely awesome. My husband said that it was just a little bit overdone but still good. Also had to have a cup of the French onion soup because it’s my favorite and they make get awesome
We loved the Scampi Frites and throughly enjoyed the music playing throughout our meal. Our server seemed a little frustrated at times but I understand that it was late in the day.
Delicious, unique food. Good service. Neat atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Food was amazing. The place was busy but not overly noisy. I will definitely be back soon.
My hubby had prime rib, he enjoyed it. He got the salad with peanut dressing. I got the seafood bisque… that is pure heaven!! I also got the new chili rellenos pasta dish. It was good, but I think it could use more poblanos. Maybe sliced up and sautéed and added. Or maybe a little roasted and puréed into the cream sauce. Don’t get me wrong it was wonderful! I’d order it again! I love poblanos and had expected there would be more in it. If you haven’t been you should go!
The food was fantastic as it always is. Great service too.
Food was absolutely awesome and the service was great. Will be going again for sure.
Great food but my French toast wasn’t cooked all the way it was way to soggy. Brisket burger I had a couple of days earlier was one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten.
Perfect place to celebrate a birthday with a small group! We will be going back!
We were having Date Night and I was bored with our “usual” places to go. I asked a friend where to go and she recommended a higher end place in the Old Market but when I looked at their menu it was the same old same old. (Yawn). So I Googled restaurants in Omaha and when I looked at the menu, it looked like some different items and flavors and I was all in!
The outside of the restaurant made me a little concerned. Strip malls aren’t where I usually think when I want amazing food, but I’m SO thankful we stayed the course. The interior was nice. It was very clean and on theme.
Our server, Knowlan, was energetic and let us set the tone for our interactions. He was knowledgeable about the menu items and I honestly believe he’s eaten them! My husband wanted one of the specials of the day and Knowlan let us know it would be a wait which we didn’t mind.
The food was crafted with love of the ingredients and a passion for taste. I shouldn’t brag too much about this too much for fear he’ll move on but I’m hoping the Chef has a vested interest and continues his craftsmanship for years as now that we’ve found it - we’ll be back!!
The food was quite good and the service was very attentive. The atmosphere is a bit dark and dingy but overall a good place for a nice brunch.
Great service and food to match. Highly recommend!
We always have great servers at Railcar. They are attentive and know the menu. The food is always good and they change up the menu to add variety from time to time.
Service was top notch, food was even better. Great selection of bourbon!
Great food & service
We have eaten here several times now and the food hasn’t always been excellent. Service is always great!! Saturday evening we had a waiter named Nolan, wonderful service, great cheerful attitude and pleasant demeanor. Would definitely ask for Nolan next time we come in!!
It took a long time to get our dinner. When the food came out it was not hot. But the wait staff was great and apologized for the delay.
Very disappointed! Everything was good except it took an hour and a half to get our for our food. No good excuse from the manager and no discount on our food. Will not go back again.
Excellent food. The taste and presentation were fabulous!!!!
Food was great, but thought portions may be a bit small. Ordered Salmon, which came with Yukon mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. Got about 1 tablespoon of the vegetables. Had I known that, I probably would have added a salad.
We were at Railcar for a birthday dinner. I tried the Pasta Saltimbocca w/chicken and it was very good...as the sauce thickened a bit it was even tastier! My husband had the Seattle Barbecued Faroe Island Salmon...it was amazing! I think he would have licked the plate if he could. The drinks were tasty and a bit strong. Since we were celebrating a birthday we were given a complimentary desert...not sure what it was called but it had a couple small portions of what tasted like apple pie with ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. Just the right amount to share and a great way to finish a great meal. We will will be back!
Had a great brunch with girlfriends!
First let me say that Railcar is one of our favorite restaurants in Omaha. I highly recommend them to all.
We went there this past Saturday for our anniversary dinner with some close friends.
All was going quite well until our entrees were served. My wife’s and our friends dinners were quite good. I ordered the salmon. It was delicious as I fully expected. As I got closer to the center of this piece of grilled salmon, I discovered it was raw inside. I don’t eat raw fish.
I asked the server to our table and explained the situation, she then called the manager, Aaron, to our table.
Aaron said they would cook another piece of salmon. I was happy with this. It should take ten minutes or less, right??
Well, nearly twenty minutes have passed and I asked for the manager again. Upon coming to our table a couple of minutes later, he said it would be another minute or two. My response was, the others have finished their meals, keep it!
He did comp me for my meal, probably should have done much more than that.
Also, our server did not seem prepared for the few tables she was managing while we were there. She actually ignored us as she passed our table, never refilled water, and never asked how our meals are. Inappropriate in Railcar.
As I said before, Railcar is one of our favorite restaurants. We will return in the future. I’m sure this was a rare incident considering all the times we have been there before and had an extraordinary meal and service.
Thanks for an interesting dining experience!
I have enjoyed Railcar each and every time I have been there. The food has been delicious and the wait staff has been very attentive. I am always confident bringing friends and family to Railcar. I know we will have a good dining experience. We hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner for 50 people 3 years ago and everyone raved about the delicious meal and accommodations. It’s always a treat to go there.
Overall a fabulous experience. Heather is great. And the location works for us.
I’ve always loved my meals at Rail Car, and I have been many, many times in years past because I enjoyed the food and service so much. Brunches, lunches and dinners, I have always said, as recently as yesterday afternoon before making our dinner reservation for a rare date night with my wife, “I’ve never had a bad meal at Rail Car.”
I wish I’d kept the memory of those excellent meals and not experienced last night’s failure of food, taste, quality, service (sorry to say!!) and ambiance I’d come to take for granted in past experiences. The food was flat and flavorless. Specials were absolutely not special, but more like coarse and unthoughtful. The pasta with beef short rib dish…I’ve tried and loved the dish before…cool, tasteless and more than 2/3rds unfinished on the plate.
I regret not speaking directly when asked how the meal was a few times but there was so much wrong with all the details that I didn’t know what to say but ‘Fine’ and a 20% tip.
I hope if you haven’t tried it before you decide to give it an honest shot. I also hope if you have been and loved it in the past that you give it all the chances to succeed you feel you can.
I, for one, will not be back.
My food was cold twice. I just ate it the second time. Waiter didn’t remove dirty dishes until we were completely finished with our meal. Soup and salad plates stayed on the table.
Our server was great and the food and drinks were delicious!
I have been there 3 times and loved each one. Crab cakes last night were delicious and my friend had a burger and loved it.
Waitress was awesome but the glasses we received our cocktails in were dirty. Reservation did not really matter as we waited for a while. First time dining here probably would not return. It was nice to try once.
