This is my favorite restaurant in burlington. The food is fresh and very flavorful. The staff is very friendly and efficient. I will be returning here at least once a week.

Great food, the calamari app and the house made jalepeno ketchup stand out, always a fresh well dispensed tap beer and good service.

The train wreck is an excellent place for lunch. The food is fantastic. I especially enjoy the coconut shrimp with sweet potato fries and the apple pecan salad with chicken breast. I like to substitute the dressing with blue cheese. It's absolutely yummy! My husband has the blue cheese burger regularly and enjoys the juicy taste of the fresh grilled... More

The place was rocking but I slid to the bar for lunch. A dozen or so beers on tap and a huge whiskey selection. Tons of scotch. They try to focus on fresh food from what I could observe. Great diverse menu. I had the oyster "poboy" and it was pretty good. The server's did a great job balancing the... More

We had two of the best chicken fried steaks , it's been my experience to have. A bit spendy but worth it.

I could not eat the hummus sandwich it was so gross...and the waitress never asked... More

Amazing food! We've never had a bad meal here. The backroom if perfect for large groups. We've had a bridal shower back there and Nick has done some dine out charity nights.

Three of us stopped by the Train Wreck for dinner about 6:30 on a Saturday. It was packed in the front but there was lots of room in the back. The food was really good and we got great service! We will be back!

Got in at 5:15PM on a Friday and had to set at the bar with my wife since all otter seats were full. The food is outstanding with plenty of variety and even have a happy hour menu. I had the fish and chip and my wife had the oyster platter, which were both great. Awesome place to eat!! Available... More
