Steakhouse
Rails Steakhouse is a modern American steakhouse offering carefully selected USDA Prime and CAB corn-fed beef, dry-aged a minimum of 28 days on-premise & hand-cut daily. We offer modern and contemporary dishes, including sustainable fresh seafood, homemade desserts, and an award-winning wine list recognized by Wine Spectator.

Attention to detail can be seen in this beautiful 20,000 sq. ft., restaurant where sprawling timber meets natural stonewalls, accents of glass showcase fire-and-water features in this luxe lodge. While all levels feature the same menu, the main dining room has a more sophisticated ambiance and Rafters on the second floor has a more casual lodge appeal. Descend to the lower level to find the secret passage that takes you to the wine cave, and Thirty 3, a speakeasy-style bar and lounge. Dine al fresco on our outdoor terraces offering spectacular views of the Pyramid Mountains. Most importantly, we want you to feel at home where our hospitality is second to none.

    It was not as good as I expected it to be. Everything needed salt. Long wait for drinks, steaks had so much fat that there was little left to eat on them. The sesame crusted Ahi tuna was just boring and bland and served with a nonsensical mound of forbidden rice dotted with lima beans. Truffle fries had good Truffle flavor and a nice portion size but could have been served in a vehicle that did not encourage them to become soggy. We did have a good server, the ambience was nice, beautiful place but just a little lackluster overall.

    The food and service is always outstanding. We have been to Rails many times before. My only complaint is when I booked on Open table it only gave us an option of a 530p reservation. There were many tables available between 6-7pm.

    We were seated outside although we got to restaurant 30 minutes prior to reservation. When asked to be seated inside because of being extremely windy and chilly was told inside was full and they had other reservations coming. At first thought it was coincidental but it is not by coincidence when you seat several parties of black folks in the same area on the train terrace. Which is very noisy due to train passing not to mention the fumes. I have dine in many places in the state, country and internationally and as far as it’s rating of fine dining. This restaurant by no means meets the standard by what I was given. I cannot speak for the service in the inside of the restaurant but I will never know because definitely won’t be returning. Left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Food and service is always good. We had the lobster cocktail as well as the crab cocktail and we split the watermelon salad! All three were amazing, fresh, bright, light for a hot summer night. As a treat… We both had an 8 ounce petite fillet cooked perfectly which came off roasted garlic on the side… Absolutely delicious! Onion rings let’s talk about those lightly battered with a kick! That is some thing I don’t normally order but it was singing to me and it sang loud! They were delicious the only downside I was saying is that I ordered a light dirty martini and it was a little too salty as was the sautéed spinach. So those 2 Things had way too much salt but the rest of the food… To die for! The two floor managers came over to check if everything was OK, incredibly generous and friendly very approachable! Servers on point! At a time where service is lacking and so is food quality this place makes you forget about all of that

    I had a business meeting and dinner was AWSOME! Hands down one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. Service was excellent/the food was OUTSTANDING - and for the value, the prices really were very good- although-warn the people that order the carrot cake that one order can feed 4 people- lol.

    It might have been an off night as I’ve been to Rail’s many many times but our Porterhouse for 2, which we asked for Medium Rare, was Well to Well Done in many places, and also sized more like a T-bone than Porterhouse. I know a big piece of meat is hard to cook properly but don’t offer it if you can’t make it happen. So we were disappointed in the main course. Busboy was in a rush to clear us out before really being done, which was irritating but not obnoxious. Waiter was great, apps were great, and the new peaches and cream cheese cake was spectacular. Overall fell slightly short of what is normally expected for the price and reputation of Rail’s.

    This was our second time here and our experience was not as good. We had to keep sending food and drinks back. We noticed multiple tables were doing the same as well. Wrong temps on the steaks which is crazy being that they’re a steakhouse! Maybe there was a new chef?? My white sangria was very sour and my Prosecco cocktail was not as good as the first time I was there. We were not as impressed as we were our first time there. It might be a while u til we return again.

    The dinner rolls they served were very basic and for a high-end restaurant should be improved. When I requested salt for the table I was given every day white refined table salt. For a high-end restaurant it should be high-quality sea salt. I chose not to get the optional sauces they offer for the steak. I prefer the natural juices of a good steak with a pinch of high-quality raw sea salt that brings the real flavor out in a steak. After adding the salt even thought white salt, the filet mignon was fine.

    The food was excellent, service was slow and out of touch. Our waiter, Erick, was NOT in top of his game. He seemed to get lost, and we had to ask for him several times. Ambiance was nice. Hostess was very nice, and we did not had to wait. Our steaks were tasty. I will go again, but we will ask for another waiter.

    I am honestly not sure where to begin with this review. From the time me and my girlfriend arrived at Rails Steakhouse. The staff was incredible from the moment we got into the door. The front desk woman was super friendly and energetic. We were directed to enter the elevator and proceed to the lower level. Upon arrival we were greeted by another extremely friendly staff person who brought us over to this bookshelf which required a secret action to be taken to enter the speakeasy where our reservation was located (But I will keep what to do a secret). Upon entering the speakeasy, we immediately were overwhelmed by the absolutely stunning decor and the lovely music that was playing in the background. We had a table all the way by the bar facing the rest of the room which was very nice. Our server Julia was absolutely incredible. We started the night off with 2 smoked old fashioned which were made perfectly!! For our appetizers we shared the oysters, tuna tartar with wonton crisps and then a salad. For our entrees I had the 16 oz New York Strip Steak cooked medium rare with a 7 oz Lobster Tail! She had the Honey Bourbon Ribeye Steak cooked medium rare with a 7 oz Lobster tail. I am not exaggerating when I say both of our steaks were cooked to absolute perfection with an awesome char on the outside. You could have cut these with a plastic butter knife with how well they were cooked. The flavor had us both essentially speechless as the meat literally melted in your mouth. For Dessert we shared 1 slice of the 10-layer chocolate cake which was absolutely gigantic!! (We ended up taking that home with us). Overall Rails Steakhouse is a MUST GO!!! From the ambiance to the food to the experience to the prices. I highly recommend it. This place is amazing for any occasion or if you just want to go out to a nice dinner.

    Four of us had dinner in the speakeasy. That Elias all we could book even 1 week in advance. The speakeasy is like a diner - except dinner was nearly $400 and we did. Or order anything extravagant and no dessert. Many better choices in N NJ!

    We made early reservations for burgers &amp; salads on a Friday before going to a movie. Our food was good. However service was disappointing. Our waitress service was good. However busboys service was lacking. He came and cleared my fiancés plate while I was still eating &amp; then even reached to grab my plate ( which still had food on it ) , while I had food in my had and was still eating. I told him “ I’m still eating !” And he returned my plate. I felt we were being rushed out at that point and service was completely rude. Especially for an $18 burger!!
