Success! Thanks for posting your review of Rail Bar & Grill. You’ve done the world some good today.

One of the Great Northside bars

The place doesnt smell like barf. Thats stupid. This place is one of my favorite Northside Bars. Its got a great atmosphere and love sitting outside in the summer. Bonus! They have a really good beer selection and the food is better than what you get in most bars. They have the best wings in the city. I love their chicken chipotle wrap. Its the bomb! Service was great here and the Bartender Jennifer is super friendly... view more

Smells Like Barf

I've lived in the neighborhood for years, and this place leaves a lot to be desired. The fact that it smells like barf inside & outside from their cooking exhaust is probably the #1 reason why you should visit Gio's up the street instead

waste of time and money

Bad place, bad people, bad food, terrible service. Went in with low hopes judging by the armpit scratchers out front and manning the door. Do they speak english in this place? Waitresses were useless. Food came and the order was wrong, then showed up later very unappetizing by site and smell, then the taste confirmed it. Our bill was like $40.00 and we drank I think 3 beers between the two of us. Felt ripped of... view more

skip it

Service is beyond slow. Prepare to ask for your check an hour before you want to leave. They charge different prices, depending on day, for a soda. Today was $3 per soda. I've never heard of such a thing. Other days it's $2 sometimes $2 every other one. This price is not listed anywhere on their menus so I guess they can get away with it.

Great place to catch a game

I come all the way from Oak park from work so before headin home I like to stop off here to have a couple beers and catch a game. It's convenient for me and easy to jump back on and head home. Good daily specials. I recommend if your in the area to check it out.

I thought I'd write an updated review on here since I live in the area and have been to The Rail a couple times in the last 3 years. Within this they have gone through some changes from food and drink specials as well as the expansion of room inside the bar. I enjoy going here in the summer for the outdoor patio seating but make it here during other times as well. They have made a change in staff which is a HUGE pl... view more

NOW there is good quality service!

Now Good Quality Service!! \r This place has really come a long way. I was reading the reviews from some years back and it seems like the service was horrible because of the servers...and since then there are completly differnt ones. There are still a few stubborn foreigners I think the bar tender...she is nice to ya but means busiess and has the best intentions for this place. The Rail is just your neighborhood bar... view more

I'll Pass

Aside from the mediocre food & ambience, the staff is rude & arrogant. I'm also sickened by the cloud of cigarette smoke that always awaits anyone who walks past this place. I've also found that the 'new' Rail attracts d-bags galore. It's just not a cool place to go. The music is always blasting & if the owner could- he'd put a flatscreen TV at every table, which is just tacky.

Stink, Stank, The Rail is Crank

The negative reviews here are entirely warranted. The wait staff is incompetent, and YES, the manager / owner are ARROGANT, and have no respect for patrons, who point out sub-par service & food.\r \r There are SO many great place to drink in this area, this one is worth avoiding - AND besides....their bathrooms are DIRTY!
