Food and service were good but my husband decided to have a bloody Mary so the waiter brought one ,never said anything and we got the bill and it was $18 he said it was bottomless which my husband did not want more than one we feel that it should’ve been brought to his attention before he received his drink! Expensive drink!

Our waitress was awesome! We sat outside and it is such a nice atmosphere. I had the cobb salad which was very good and friends both had the scallops dinner. We enjoyed our girl's night out.

Our door Patio is so pleasant with the railroad tracks. The wait staff is very friendly. Food was delicious. They have a limited menu (which is understandable) but everything was prepared perfectly.
I would highly recommend this place.

I really enjoyed the outside seating at Sykesville Station. We enjoyed dinner but the pulled pork was a bit too fatty for me. I would chose something different next time. My husband's bison burger was great. The service was outstanding. We will return.

Nice range of menu options from simpler burgers and sandwiches to a moderate number of entrees. Service was friendly, attentive and amazingly fast for Friday night at 7:17 PM. Ate outside but was not there for a train :-(. Will definitely return.

It was my first time at this restaurant under new ownership/menu/theme. I have to say that I probably won't go back. I loved the historic look of this place and it's special location next to the railroad. But the food was fair at best and theme (boot scootin' boogie) is not my thing. I miss the previous upscale cuisine.

My Mom, sister, and aunts had a great time celebrating all the birthdays from this past year that we weren’t able to celebrate because of COVID. Your outdoor dining area is fantastic (we even got to see a train!), the food was delicious, and the service was great! We will definitely be back!

Great food, prices are reasonable. The filet was to die for, as good as any steak you’d get at Ruth’s Chris. My guests had the Salmon, one had the Seared Scallops and another had the burger, she loved the fries! Sykesville Station has become my “go to” place for special occasions as well as everyday dining.

Food is usually amazing. Didnt enjoy the catfish bites this time. Very fishy tasting and no real flavor. Fried Green tomato BLT was dry. Croutons on the salad were tasteless. Iced tea tasted horrible and soda was flat. Not sure what happened. Must have just been a bad evening.

We always going to Sykesville Station and then strolling the quaint little town. My grandson was disappointed that a train didn’t come by during our brunch. The Bloody Marys are a salad in itself!!!

Food and service was good, but the room we were in was so loud we could barely talk with our friends. Also, I prefer tablecloths. They need to do something to muffle the sound.

Had 6:15 PM reservations arrived at 6:10 PM. We were seated at the high top as per our reservation. It took 10 minutes before we were acknowledged by a server to get our drink order. Our food took over 25 minutes to arrive at our table after giving the order to our server. The food was warm upon arrival as if it had been waiting to be served to us. My husband ordered the filet and I had the scallops. Food was tasty but I do not believe we will be returning any time soon.

Our service was friendly and prompt. EXCEPT - On Open Table I specifically noted that one person in our party was strictly gluten free. No one asked us about this - did anyone at the restaurant even see this? AND our friend's salad had bread croutons. He did not make a fuss - just took them out of the salad.

Also - My husband and our friends had wonderful dinners. Mine, however, was not hot at all. When it was taken back and "warmed" it was still was hardly warm. (Shrimp and grits). That was disappointing.

I was glad we could be in a room without TV screens.
