This is a little old house made into a restaurant and tavern. Upstairs is fine dining and downstairs is a more relaxed tavern/bar area with tables too! Food is delicious. We had dinner and drinks. The staff was friendly and our meals were spot on!

Tavern on the Rail has been the venue for our anniversary dinner twice. Everything from the ambiance, service, and delicious food make this a worthwhile visit. The shrimp and crab entrees are especially delicious.

We were in town and decided to try the lunch menu. The place was packed and our waitress was tied up so the other waitress Lauren came over and took our drink orders. She then knew our waitress was busy so she took our order...More

The food is always great and the wait staff attentive. An unusual atmosphere filled with antiques and charm. If your lucky the train will go thru and you can feel the floor vibrate under your feet.

I had been wanting to drive up from Richmond to try this place and to be honest, the food was very good! I had no complaints. Bringing my car club buddies up for lunch in March! Great little place to eat!

Prime rib special is always a real treat -- though for seafood lovers the Salmon or the scallops are done to perfection. Soups homemade and not to be missed. For lunch, best burger and cheese steak in the area

Small restored store in Mineral with friendly waitstaff, giod food and nice atmosphere. Service was good and the food was good. (Mile high meatloaf). It is not fast food and so you wait a reasonable while for your food so go with a relaxed schedule....More

Spent a few days at Lake Anna and choose Tavern on the Rail for a Saturday dinner, I had the prime rib and my wife had the ribs. I really can not put into words how good our meal was, the prime rib was cooked...More
