Railcar Modern American Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Went here for Valentines dinner, and made reservations ahead of time. When we got there, they asked us if we wanted to sit in the bar, and we said okay. While the server was very friendly, everything took a very long time to get to us, as our cocktails took over 20 minutes. Our appetizer came out in good time but our entrees didn't arrive until being there for over an hour, and about 40 minutes after ordering them. The server continued to tell us that she was sorry, and they weren't expecting to be that busy tonight. I guess we were a little shocked at those comments because while it was on a weekday night, it was Valentine's Day. The parking lot wasn't full though, and there were open tables throughout the night in the restaurant. The food was very good, but the portions were not overly impressive. Also sitting in the bar area, we were overhearing the employees talking at the end of the bar over the course of the night. For Valentine's dinner, I guess it would've been nice to not have to overhear everyone else all night. We will give it another chance someday, as the food was good and so were the cocktails when they finally arrived, just hope that the urgency of service levels and attentiveness are better next time.
This place was excellent...food was amazing and our waitress was great. We never felt rushed through our meal...we fully enjoyed our evening. We had the lobster hush puppies for apps...so good! The Bourbon medallions were cooked to perfection and so tender...the pork chop was absolutely the best flavor. We will definitely be back!
Service was great, food tasted amazing. Portions were a bit small and they ran out of prime rib. Get there early if prime rib is what you want. Food was very flavorful and had some interesting pairings. Overall great 1st experience and will definitely be going back.
Fabulous food and service. Went on a recommendation from friends and were very pleasantly surprised. Very quick, friendly service, lovely menu choices and atmosphere. Only tiny issue is that we found it cold.....understand that it is difficult to control temperature to please everyone, especially during an unusually cold February night!
Food was amazing until entrees came out. One which was homemade gnocchi that was way over cooked and fell apart as we tired to eat it. Also there was a sour taste to the red sauce on the pork belly meatballs. We informed them and they were very sweet and took it
Off our bill.
Our server was wonderful. I have a peanut, tree nut, and sesame see allergy. She made sure to tell the kitchen and even came back and talked to me about how the owner said the bread was manufactured at a place that has tree nuts. I was disappointed to see that my salad I got ended up having a few peanuts in it, even though it says nothing about it on the menu and the server said it was fine also. We were compensated for my food and given a gift card. The food and drinks were great, but for someone with a food allergy, I would be a little hesitant to return.
Even with a reservation we waited close to an hour for a table, which I wouldn't have minded if the service had been better. We got seated, waited 5 minutes for waters and another 30 for drinks. At this point our order still hadn't been taken. After a while, our waitress finally took our order, and we waited about 40 minutes for our food. When the food came out, all four of us were missing the side of hash browns that came with our meal. When the waitress came back I asked if we could get our hash browns and she then told me that they had run out but she could get us all fries. So, it seemed like if I wouldn't have asked she wouldn't have even told us that they had run out of hash browns. About 10 minutes later the fries came out, they were lukewarm and unseasoned. I got the chicken and waffles which were alright, there was almost no bourbon maple syrup (which is what I was looking forward to) and more gravy than I knew what to do with making the waffle soggy. Overall, it was not worth the $25 for my boyfriend and I and I will for sure never be back.
Bottomless Bloody Mary and endless time for brunch. Perfect place for girlfriends, old friends to linger over a meal to catch up. Unfortunately, this did not describe our party of 5, including a 2-year old. Ambiance was lost on our little guy. Just wanted a pancake. We had asked that it be put on a "fast track" as he was hungry. Server tried hard to "hurry" the grill, to no avail. Server brought fruit and crayons as stalling tactic. Crayons were delicious. We were all served 45 minutes after having ordered. Great brunch selection, not the usual. Very filling; most brunch items fried, lots of creams and butter. Had made reservations; they were able to accommodate our last-minute request for an extra person (the toddler). Will try Railcar, again, minus kiddo.
You cannot mix and match the unlimited alcoholic beverages. The apple sangria and bloody mary are no good. The mimosas are tiny. We waited almost an hour for our food and then the food came out wrong! For the wait, the food was not that great. Our waiter was all over the place and rarely came to our table. Overall bad experience.
The food was incredible and the prices very reasonable. The waitress was very attentive. The croissants they bring to every table are to die for. It took a little longer than average to get our food, but the restaurant was very crowded and it was definitely worth waiting for!
Amazing food - we took our granddaughter with us this time around and she loved the lemon ricotta pancakes! I had one of the benedict options - very generous piece of ham, eggs were perfect. My husband had the double stack burger and fries. He couldn't say enough good things about both.
We look forward to eating here whenever we are in Omaha - a three hour drive for us. We enjoy that the keep their staples but change some menu options.
Deangelo was our server. He had a larger party he was waiting on as well but he really had a tough time. Took over 25 minutes to just get a glass of water. I finally had to track someone else down as it was rather warm.
After he finally brought our drinks he said I’ll get you an appetizer for the inconvenience and I’ll upgrade to a large.
When he brought out our appetizer he didn’t bring plates. I finally had to get up and go ask for plates.
When he brought the bill - he had the appetizer on there. He did discount that I asked him about it.
As usual - the food was fantastic. The service was far below the normal standard we usually enjoy and expect at your establishment.
Wonderful food and service. We visited when it was crazy busy and they still offered great service. Every item on the menu is worth recommending. Try something different if you always get the same thing, you won't regret it. Nice job Railcar. Read the fine print on coupons because they never worked for me.
The food was satisfactory, definitely not worth the price. The service was extremely slow, and since we were seated near the door right next to the kitchen (though we had a reservation and other seats were available), the experience was not particularly enjoyable.
We were very impressed with Railcar when we visited on New Year’s Eve. Even though they were pretty busy, we were seated right away and our server was attentive. She even made sure my husband got the last of the specials they were serving that night! The food and drinks were great. I would definitely recommend visiting.
