Food and service were great as we've come to expect from this unique dining experience. The grounds are lovely for meandering before dinner and apart from the air conditioner not being able to cool the place down during this particularly hot and humid evening, everything was outstanding.

It was the best dinner I have had in a couple of years. There were four of us and each thought their main course was best, including a vegetarian dish, halibut, and two different pasta dishes. The first course of salads was the freshest and among the most creative and beautiful-looking salads I have ever had. A special shout-out to the bartender who made wonderful martinis. The desserts were delicious.l but not quite up to the other courses. With that said, I loved the budino. The service could not have been better - educated, willing to share her expertise easily, and would gladly ask for her when we return.

Overall was great! The service was exceptional. The only short fall was the chicken karaage, the chicken was a little burnt and not fresh. (Same goes to the chicken in chicken udon) other than that Chashu is my favourite go to in Worcester!

Milford
About the restaurant
The Rail Trail Flatbread Co., celebrated its grand opening on 12/12/23, marking not only a milestone in Milford's downtown revitalization but also a nod to the original Hudson location's success. Built in a meticulously renovated former bank that features a spacious restaurant and bar, outdoor patio, and upstairs events space, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere.

The Milford location reflects a two-and-a-half-year renovation effort, preserving historical elements like the century-old clock, vault door, and exposed brick walls. The open dining layout encourages interaction, adorned with family photos for a homey feel.

Though famous for flatbreads, Rail Trail boasts diverse offerings, each component is made in-house. Notable flatbreads include "Fig & Walnut" and "Mexican Street Corn," alongside the popular "Primo Pepperoni." Appetizers like "Hot Tots" and "Sesame Cauliflower" showcase Rail Trail's culinary creativity.

This place has such delicious food! We’ve been to the Hudson location before and are so excited they opened in Milford! Great pizza, awesome brunch options, great drinks. Tons of space for large groups. They have a cool large bar if you like bar seating, also has a cute outdoor patio in back. You can watch them cooking the pizza. Absolutely love this place!
