OUR HISTORY – We are located at the previous site of Brighton Station, built in the late 1840’s to welcome commuter passengers and tourists to the neighborhood. Now, 58 years later, we celebrate the return of rail service to Brighton. Rail Stop Restaurant & Bar honors the timeless culture and tradition of this community while embracing a new era of urbanism in all of Boston’s unique neighborhoods.
Out of our scratch kitchen we offer a mix of modern and classic New England cuisine including dry-aged steaks, fresh local seafood, and “comfort food done well” as described by Executive Chef Jonathan Schick. Here you’ll find lobster mac & cheese, chargrilled filet mignon, white clam bucatini, heirloom tomato BLT sandwiches, and more.
Our Beverage Program
Come grab a seat at our spacious bar where you’ll find a cocktail list inspired by the “Golden Age of Cocktails,” a time between the late 1800’s to early 1900’s—an era when the Martini, Daiquiri, and Manhattan were all invented. At Rail Stop we put our own twist on these classic drinks and offer the Barrel-Aged Manhattan; the Rail Road Smash featuring Redemption Rye Whiskey; and the South Station Sidecar featuring Hine Cognac and a house-made orange cordial.
Perhaps while you’re sipping on your new favorite drink you’ll meet Eli Shapiro, a veteran bar expert who leads our beverage program. Eli is proud to say that all of our craft beer is local, all of our cordials are made in house, and our wine list features wines from around the world.
