Food was good for a business lunch and service was adequate. Hot tea options were appreciated and attention to needs was welcomed.

The food once it arrived was pretty good. The service was let's just say not very good, slow and crabby come to mind.

We had a nice time here for lunch. Atmosphere is similar to a bar and grill, but in an old railroad depot. It's cool. The burger and fries, red snapper fish tacos, bloody Mary's were good too. Would definitely come back.

I had lunch here with a group of co-workers. The soup and salad is very good. Everyone was very happy with their dishes. Service was good and can get in and out easily within an hour.

very simply put, solid menu with plenty of choices of pub grub. A very nice beer selection with several local artisan brews. Pleasant and attentive staff. Very good for Faribault but otherwise average bar food. But since the selections are somewhat limited here I would come again. I enjoyed the fish taco wrap with walleye.

This restaurant always has a great selection of daily specials plus an extensive menu. If it's summer and you sit outside you may experience the thrill of a freight train whooshing by just a few feet from your table. The decor is all related to the train industry and the bar area is great for watching sports.

The tastiest burger in town; Filet Mignon burger with bacon and cheddar. Add a fresh side salad and you'll feel validated about downing the amazing fries! So delicious.

Attended here with a large group. The restaurant has a neat atmosphere and was quite busy. We attended with a large group. All of us could not be accommodated in one area so I sat at the bar. Service was a little slow and not the friendliest. That being said we were with a group and still had fun. Our... More

Was so hungry ate half until I was overcome by the dough with cheese on top. Other person ordered a caeser salad which... More

Stopped in for lunch on our way farther south. Ordered the Reubens sandwich with homemade meats and kraut. It was obviously fresh but the flavor was average. I liked the ambience and the pace was very busy. Recommended for a quick bite or easy and relaxed lunch.
