Love their Mushroom Stew. Served in a large Italian bread. So good.


The food by the Trackside was fabulous. We had a private party at the station and of course they catered it. We are definitely going back to enjoy another dinner soon.


Forty "Tastin' 'the Grapes" wine tasting club members raved about our late afternoon visit there before our train ride yesterday! Everyone loved the menu selections..the food was superb...the drinks perfect...and you couldn't ask for a more welcoming and wonderful staff! Will we return? You betcha! Thanks to all who served and cooked for guys do it right!


Was sitting at the bar enjoying some music and our attentive server saw us checking out a menu and asked if we would like to order something. Tried a handmade app and was not disapponted. Crispier breading than I've had in a long time and delicious sauce. I will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu.


Fantastic! Hands down! We had a party of 16 - we were celebrating family - from 4-94 years old. We had the room to ourselves for the most part - sound level was perfect. Rafael was great - we highly recommend all of the waitstaff and the food. Thank you for making our family reunion so special.


I had my bridal shower at Trackside yesterday, and what a fabulous place to have it! They are so accommodating and made sure that my guests, and myself were taken care of the whole time. I would highly recommend them! Their food was amazing, the restaurant is beautiful, and their staff was so helpful and caring. We will definitely be going back for dinner sometime soon!


OMG...the service was fantastic....the food was out of this world ...and so much! This was by far,the best buffet we have been to in a long time! Thank you so very much!


We had my mother's bday party in the grill room!!! It was perfect! The table was set beautifully. We decorated the room to our liking, the food was delicious, Raphael-our waiter was the best!!!!!


Excellent, Excellent, Excellent... Rafael was the best...Food was great. Atmosphere incredible. My daughter graduated from Utica College and we had 20 people for a family style dinner and a room to ourselves. Would recommend it to anyone who asked. Thank You Trackside.


Yesterday was the first time I have every been at this restaurant. I just want to say that your food was amazing, and so was the service. I will definitely be a repeat customer and I will also share my experience with all my friends and family. So if they don't know about your establishment, they will now.


The service was outstanding and the food was top notch! Let's not forget the relaxed setting of the train station. Keep up the great work!
