The food here was AMAZING. I highly recommend the cheese platter to start. The staff was also incredibly friendly and very well informed about their menu.

Fantastic experience. Food was delicious and super fresh. Open kitchen provides full transparency. True farm to table dining. Lily at the bar was spot on with her recommendations. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Bottom Line:  High quality food and attentive staff. I'm really glad that I discovered The River and Rail thanks to Yelp while staying the night in Roanoke.  Dining at The River and Rail is more like an experience than dinner given their crafty cocktails and interesting Southern-inspired menu.   My husband and I stated with cocktails.  He got the sweet and tropical inspired High Wide & Handsome which went down very smoothly but left him a little tipsy. I ordered the Model Citizen which was very much a sipping drink that I nursed throughout the evening.  It is all booze but our server warned me that it was strong. For dinner we were very curious about the menu so we tried a lot of stuff - the jar of pickles, the pimento cheese and toast, the beef ribs special, the grilled broccoli and the dry aged ribeye.  It was all really tasty and beautiful.  Never in my life did I think that pickled vegetables could be a work of art but they surely were.  And the beef ribs were also perfectly trimmed and mouth watering.   Also perfect was the service.  Everyone was friendly, attentive and taking proper COVID precautions.  We sat relatively close to the door so I had a good amount of time to witness all of the hostesses interactions with the dine in customers and customers getting orders to go.  Definitely a first rate staff at the The River and the Rail to compliment the first rate cocktails and cuisine.
