I am pleasantly surprised on how good the food (shrimp horseradish capers with spinach fettuccine in dills cream sauce) ! I also enjoyed the wine (riesling). The service was also very good.
Here's some suggestions to make it even better. For the Wasabi tuna, perhaps put the fried onions on the side. The bread, serve it warm. Also. It was really nice to sit outdoors but if you have acoustic music it would make it even a lovelier ambience. Add some solar lights going to the parking from outdoors for safety.
Overall we are happy with food, drink, service and ambience of this restaurant.

It was a beautiful day and we were able to sit outside. Our waiter was very friendly and an excellent server. He also gave us a little history about the restaurant and building. It was a wonder experience overall.

We have been to the Station many times and never disappointed. This time was for a 70th birthday celebration, with a party of 6. We requested outdoors seating on the patio and were accommodated. The service is excellent. The food is excellent. The atmosphere on the patio is great. On prior visits, we have eaten inside, and also enjoy that atmosphere. We all had different appetizers (different salads). and main courses, including fish, steak, and chicken. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we had a great time.

This is my first time going to The Station and it did not disappoint. We went for lunch and there were only a couple of other tables occupied so it was nice and quiet. The setting is charming and rustic and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. We’ll definitely be back for dinner!

We enjoyed an extended family gathering on the patio. It was a warm night, and they had fans blowing to circulate the air and keep the pests away. We enjoyed a wonderful bottle of wine before enjoying our dinner. It was a lovely way to enjoy dinner and the out of doors.
