    TLDR: The food is overall solid, but I recommend staying away from the bland pizza. Specialty shakes can only be made at certain times of the day when they have someone who knows how to make them (???) Beer menu is long, but they are out of a majority of them. Restaurant is oddly cold - may have been the corner we were in - but may be worthwhile to bring a light sweatshirt for more temperature sensitive group members. The Good: The restaurant is very clean, and I got a reservation for 5 super easily last minute during prime dinner time on a Sunday. The burgers and no-meat burgers (sandwiches) are delicious, and they are served with a nice thick fry/small potato wedge. If my experience stopped here, it would’ve been a fantastic night. The Bad: My group walked into a fairly empty restaurant 1.5 hours prior to closing (6:30 PM). By the time we had ordered our food and appetizer, there were only a few tables left. We attempt to order beer from the menu only to have all 5 choices directly from the menu being sold out. Interesting. Next, we attempt to order specialty milkshakes (which are a cornerstone of the menu). The server tells us that they cannot make any specialty milkshakes because no one knows how to make them. They could, however, make normal single flavor milkshakes. Not only does this make no sense because they simply add the toppings into the shake, but it is a huge part of their business given the amount of space it takes up on the menu… The normal shakes were great, but for $7??? With the clear out of the tables, we thought we would get relatively fast service - WRONG. 30 minutes go by, and we haven’t received our appetizer. Keep in mind the kitchen is open, so we can see no work being done by the cooks. We received our nachos, and they were great. We then wait for an hour after ordering for our main course. The orders came out as expected and were good except for the pizza which didn’t come out for another 5 minutes. Pizza was overall bland. 3/5

    The train depot venue and views are lovely, but the food and service were disappointing.The burgers were both cold by the time we received them, and although cooked correctly, lacked flavor. We had to flag down our server several times, even though they were over staffed, with most of the servers hanging around and chatting. I may go back because of the location and venue, which are both worth experiencing, but I wish the food rose to the occasion.

    The burgers are fantastic! Love the french fries. They're like a cross between a potato chip and french fries. Highly recommend! Milkshakes are very good. Not sure they're worth $9.00, but they are good. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. My family already wants to go back.

    I was disappointed, they were out of everything I was interested in so I had to settle. I looked at menu before I went, thinking I could get these items. The excuse was oops, we need to update our menu’s. Very Disappointed. Place is cool, food ok, value good but overall I would give this place 2 stars- wont be back.

    We were looking for a non chain burger place with some personality and this place did not disappoint. The food was great, the adult shakes are fantastic and the location being a former train depot, situated near active tracks was just really cool. The staff were attentive and we will definitely be going back.

    Nice location! Trains go by every so often. Food was good and the drinks were tasty. Our experience was completely satisfactory to good, but not out of this world. I would recommend trying it at least once. Good for families and couples and probably small groups too. $15-20/per

    The burgers were awesome. Our only complaint was that it took just a little longer than we would have liked to have someone come take our order, and it also took just a little longer than we would have liked for the food to be made and served to us. They had pretty much finished the dinner rush when we ate, so not sure why there were delays. But overall, the food was excellent so we would definitely give this place another try.

    We had awesome and quick service here. The food is AMAZING for a super reasonable price. We went out for Valentine’s Day and it was less then 60$ and our food was done so quick we were in and out in less than 45 minutes. Even with getting appetizers and dessert. All around Awesome experience get wait to go back another time and check out the bar!

    Good food. The setting is a bit spartan, so the ambiance ia lacking. This is casual enough, however, that should not be a big deal. I have hearing issues, though, and this place was a bit noisy.

    Service was fantastic! We ordered the Mahi lettuce wraps and they were wonderful. The Brakeman Burger was a bit disappointing as it was dry and not very warm. The onion rings were could have been warmer but they were good. I would recommend Brakeman's; just hope the food is warmer. Great location, easy parking, great views :)
