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 Old Fashioned, Daiquiri, and Manhattan were all invented. At Rail Stop we put our own twist on our favorite classic drinks. We also offer a great selection of Barrel-Aged Cocktails that have been maturing and mellowing in New American White Oak Barrels. The time the liquid spends in the barrels, the more flavors and colors are pulled from the wood.
Perhaps while you’re sipping on your new favorite cocktail you’ll meet Eli Shapiro, a veteran bar expert who leads our beverage program. Eli is proud to say that most of our craft beer is local, most of our bitters as well as our cordials are made in house, and our extensive wine list feature wines from around the world.

“OUR SERVICE AND COMPANY CULTURE IS WHAT SETS US APART”
Josh Medeiros is General Manager of Rail Stop Restaurant & Bar, a Beauport Hospitality Group property at Brighton’s Boston Landing. Medeiros has earned a well-deserved reputation on the South Shore of Boston for hospitality, which he’s served for over ten years.
After earning a degree in Business Management and Marketing from Florida Atlantic University, Medeiros developed his skills in hospitality opening and managing several award-winning restaurants in Palm Beach County. He then returned to his hometown of Fall River, Massachusetts opening a scratch kitchen tapas restaurant, Sky Restaurant & Bar, which quickly became a local favorite for fresh tapas and its 100+ martini menu. After selling the restaurant in 2012, Josh became Food & Beverage Director at Forty 1° North in Newport, RI.
