According to Open Table, we were not shown up. At the entrance, I told the manager that we made a reservation. She showed a confused expression. The service was slow, although the restaurant was quite empty on Saturday afternoon, so our dishes were not warm. The floor was not clean either. We will change our brunch spot. Very disappointed.

Very impressed, especially considering I have two food allergies; gluten and dairy, and I was able to enjoy a delicious Butternut Squash Risotto!

this was our fourth trip to this fun place.
the food is delicious and the menu varied, however, our server was just behind the eighth ball.
He got the drink order of our friends (who had arrived before us) wrong and rather than take our order back to the bar, we had to call him back to take our drink order then we all waited 15 minutes before he came back.
in fairness to the restaurant, this is the first server that we have ever had there that was not good.
We have always enjoyed our times there

This was my 4th visit to Railstop and the first time I’ve ever been disappointed. I made reservations days before the occasion which was my birthday. I noted birthday on the reservation form. I guess it didn’t matter because nothing came of it.
The waiter was not as outgoing and friendly as other waiters we have had when eating at Railstop. There was no bread ever brought to the table...is this something you no longer do? Also, the 4 in my party each had various steaks which were delicious however, the vegetables and whipped potatoes were not very good at all.
The drinks were fine. And the food arrived in a timely manner. Everyone has an off night so I guess this was Railstops just wish it wasn’t on my birthday.

We are repeat customers and this was another lovely experience. The staff were very attentive without being obtrusive. We asked for a quiet spot in the dining room and they were able to accommodate us despite the fact that it was pretty busy.

Stayed at the bar, took advantage of the 1/2 price starters. Drinks, especially the barrel aged Negronis were phenomenal, served with beautiful garnishes. Calamari was good, not a fan of the accompanying sauce. Shishito peppers were perfectly charred, delicious. Quesadilla was nothing special. Definitely will go again for a full dinner. Lovely room.

This restaurant was excellent! The food, creative cocktails and ambiance was top notch. The calamari and shortrib sliders were excellent as was the lobster mac and cheese. The drinks were a work of art and not watered down. My only wish was that it was in another location. We were only in the area to attend an event at WGBH and there is nothing else nearby that would draw me there. Our server was good, however, I watched another server do an amazing job of 'selling' the menu and describing the food choices.

We enjoyed our visit very much except after we left we realized we got charged for a primerib sandwhich that we cancelled and got charged anyhow and No we did not call because neither we or our guests saved the receipt but I think u should know and your servers should be more aware!

I had a really delicious brunch at Railstop. The location is great, there's plenty of parking. The ambiance of the restaurant is really nice. It is a nice balance between restaurant, bar, and sports bar. It is very spacious and the waitstaff was all very nice. And the food was really delicious and inventive. I had a great butternut squash bisque and a yummy short rib hash. To top it all off, they had great gluten-free options, including gluten free crust for pizza, for my mom! Will definitely be going back!

The restaurant is beautiful and service was excellent! Drinks were great, but food was just okay. Salads were under dressed and the dressing had very little flavor. Our entrees were mixed reviews. We got a risotto special with scallops that was very good and another risotto special with short ribs that was just okay. The short ribs were tender and cooked to perfection, but there was very little seasoning or taste. The risottos were creamy and had nice texture with corn and leeks, but some bites of leeks seemed tough and chewy. I would definitely try this restaurant again, but maybe stick to menu items next time, hoping they are more tried and true.

Lots of GF options even though the items aren't marked. The waiter indicated that they can do a gluten free version of just about anything on the menu, including a separate fryer. The risotto special was excellent!
