The service was fantastic and food was delicious. There were several employees who helped bus tables and refill waters, and my glass was never empty. I got a great wine recommendation from the bartender. We started with the mushroom and sausage pastry as a an appetizer. I got filet mignon burgundy and he got filet mignon gorgonzola, and we got house salads and a side of mac n cheese. In the past I've also gotten the tilapia oreganata which is always a win. For dessert we got mexican coffee (with kahlua) and station coffee (with baileys) along with creme brulee. We've been pleased each time we visit the Station, but this visit was exceptionally enjoyable.

Food was nicely prepared. My steak au poivre and my son's steak diane were very nicely done. Service was fast and friendly. All in a quaint location/building. Will revisit for sure/

Took quite a long time for our server to get to us after we were seated and just okay after that. Ribeye was great. Smoked salmon/trout appetizer also excellent.

Always a great meal at The Station - the steaks were superb. Hint: ask for a table in the side room, it's a little quieter than the main room.

We recently went there for my daughter's birthday. It was a very nice experience and the birthday girl was very pleased! Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us great recommendations. Everything was delicious from start to finish. and the atmosphere was quaint with a flair of elegance. We would definitely return.

I have heard a lot about the station and have been meaning to check it out. We had an impromptu night away from the kids and their was a reservation available. We were able to sit outside and the outdoor area was beautiful. We both ordered steak and they were fantastic. I have been to other “steak houses” in the area and I would never go back to any of those again after having The Station’s steak. I would highly recommend for a special occasion or just to go out and enjoy some food!

After a warm welcome upon arrival, we were escorted to our table. Our server was quite prompt in greeting us and taking our beverage order. Our server answered our menu inquiries respectfully and was knowledgeable about the menu. All of our food was served hot and was delicious.
After completing our meal, a Manager, asked if everything was satisfactory and thanked us for dining at The Station.
We recommend The Station to anyone looking for good service and a menu that has something for everyone.

Lovely outdoor setting and ambiance. Very romantic patio to dine on, with tons of space in between tables so you're not crowded. Food is excellent! Staff is extremely courteous and always smiling. Highly recommend for the quiet, intimate and beautiful surrounding scenery and of course, the food!
