We dine here about 4 times per year. The steaks are very good...tender and tasty. The dining room can be a little loud and also drafty during winter months. The service is average but the food it very good.
My husband recently got a new job so we wanted to celebrate! We’re so glad that we decided to celebrate at Rails because the ambiance, service and food were all GREAT! Can’t wait to return!
A absolute perfect experience. My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary and everything was perfect. The food was amazing and exactly what we wanted. I couldn’t have asked for a better dinner and dessert.
Great place for drinks especially the speakeasy downstairs. Food was good but less than expected for the price.
We loved it and we will be back soon!! The dinner was very tasty and exactly what we wanted. Our favorite part was after dinner we sat out by the fire with a couple of drinks... Made our night complete!
This was our second ever visit. And I was looking forward to repeating our wonderful experience. So we checked in at the front to let them know we were there and going downstairs to have a cocktail before our dinner reservation. We were not informed it was closed for a private party. We sat at the bar for a good 10 min before we were informed that it was closed. The bartender was very nice but we never saw a closed private party sign. So annoyed we went up stairs to the bar to grab a drink before dinner. We were not impressed with the attitude of the upstairs bartender. When I received my drink was made and presented in a very sloppy manner. Which was very disappointing. We finished our drinks and got seated at our table. Not one to complain. The table was in the middle of the room. With in a few minutes we were bumped into quite a few times. We asked to move to a different table. And happily they moved us. The rest of the night was a wonderful experience. Our servers were fantastic and the food was great. Overall it was a so so experience. I would still go back and hope that our first experience could still be created.
The food and service was increasing. Unfortunately, we had reservations for 9:00 pm and had to wait 30 mins for our table.
Great food, bar, scene for date night, girls night, single or couple night.
Great meal, excellent service!
Jake was our waiter and as always it was amazing
Our waiter was great and we enjoyed the ambiance however the food was lacking.
Nice place. Excellent food
Food & service very poor.
Servers just going though the motion.
Lamb ordered medium came raw. Brussel Sprouts must have been cooked at noon and reheated, horrible!
Au poivre & Béarnaise sauce served cold, not even warm!
Crab cake was NOT colossal! It was a normal sized flat crabcake barely warm.
We never saw our server after she took our order.

New Years Day
My boyfriend and I went to Rails for New Years Eve. The food was excellent! The atmosphere was also really nice. However, the service was not great and the valet was totally overwhelmed and could not keep up with the crowd. We will return to Rails but not for a holiday.
We had a wonderful New Year's Eve Dinner. My only issue was when we arrived for our 4:15 dinner reservation, we were told our table was not ready yet, but we could sit in the Library as long as we were out by 6:00 pm. I find it a bit insulting since we had a dinner reservation and it was not our issue that our table was not available. I did not want to "watch the clock" for our dinner. As it turns out, we were very full from dinner, but had I wanted a coffee we would have not been out by 6:00 pm.
Loud and expensive. Would not recommend or visit again.
We were on a date (with two small kids at home dates are hard to come by) and they put us in a nice, intimate side room. We were very happy about this at first however the room was NOISY. They must have been doing some rearranging in the room above because for about 30-40 minutes all we could hear was furniture being dragged across the floor, things being dropped, etc.
In addition, I guess being placed in a corner of a side room meant that we may have been forgotten about. Waiters never checked on us, water glasses were never refilled, etc.
Food was very good, but wasn’t quite the date we were looking for :-/
Excellent setting. Food and value great. Will go back for my next Steak meal.
Extremely LOUD for no reason. We sat in the private room and heard all of this ruckus around us. Sounded like horses were clip clopping all around us. It was very annoying. I wouldn't recommend sitting in this room to anyone.
Food was great! Kansas city steak was what my husband ordered and loved every bite. I ordered the gnocchi and king crab meat in Marsala sauce. It was delicious! We got mac and cheese as a side, sadly, it was nothing to write home about. I'd suggest anything else on their sides menu. We added crabcake to the steak and it did not disappoint.
Butter cake was just a yellow sponge cake. Save your money and go with the carrot cake. It is more bang for your buck. Could feed 3-4.
Waitress was very hospitable and charming. Knowledgeable of the menu options and specials for the day.
Outstanding all around!
Gave my wife a free birthday dessert. Very thoughtful.
Excellent meal , staff wad overly friendly, management wad superb thanks to all
My entre was the Pablo encrusted Scottish salmon. It was the best salmon I have ever had! 😀
Food and service was exceptional.
Delicious food.. great steaks! We will definitely come back again!
Always an enjoyable experience... the black & tans were to die for! Food and service always impeccable.
Fantastic as always!
What a perfect place to go when you want to impress friends or share a romantic dinner with the one you love.
Have never disappointed in the food! Great atmosphere!
Food was great and the ambiance was terrific. Just have your money right:)
The best restaurant in NJ! Nothing compares.
I’ve been to Rails in the past. And usually I have a great experience, however this this time around wasn’t what I looked forward to. When I arrived for my reservation I was told there were no tables available at the moment and was asked to wait by the bar. I made these reservations months in advance so I was somewhat surprised. My girlfriend and I waited for about 20 minutes and went to look for the hostess, when I found her she said a party was leaving and a table would be available soon. We continued to wait and finally were told we could be seated. The table we were given was halfway in the waiting area. As though they added it because they’ve overbooked. Hungry and it was getting late, we did not complain about it and just sat down. We could barely hear each other because of the noise coming from the waiting area. As we were looking over the menu, a group of staff members came along with a bunch of chairs and were setting up for a large party right behind us. Carrying chairs over our heads. The maître d’ was very apologetic, but the situation was very uncomfortable. The food was great as it always is, I ordered the porterhouse and my girlfriend ordered the short rib, both amazing.
Annual holiday dinner
Food was absolutely amazing. Service was very attentive. This place will not break the bank. Definitely worth it.
As always...from ambiance to service and Apps to Main course to Dessert, RAILS STEAKHOUSE is at the TOP of our list for excellence. A unique and beautiful environment with comfortable, unhurried, pre-dining "hang out" space near multiple fireplaces , and a variety of dining environments make this our go-to destination. We bring a "gang" of buds with us whenever we go. Great food and FUN. Always excellent reviews by all our friends. LUV IT!!!
Service was very good and the food quality was excellent.
Brianna is an excellent server! Friendly and attentive. Food was on par with when the restaurant first opened. Atmosphere is always great. We’ll be back.
Table was perfect, ambiance was really nice. Some music, perhaps even holiday music would have been great. We had to ask for water several times and my 80 yr old aunt was a bit frustrated.
Other than that, drinks and food were delicious and will definitely continue to choose Rails!
Very accommodating and excellent staff. We had our 21 month old granddaughter with us and they were very professional and took in her needs. We had a relaxing and delicious meal. They did not rush us
