This is a fantastic hole-in-the-wall with the best Broasted Chicken. If your looking for a comfortable place to relax and have a great meal, this is it. Be patient, they run on a small amount of staff, but the food is worth the wait and priced right.

The chicken here is to die for. The service is lacking to say the least. They usually have one person working and they are also answering the phone and serving customers. It is always busy and always short staffed.

I like their chicken but I really like their Burgers and beer served in iced mugs. Donna Biggins is old school friendly and opinionated. He partner is friendly and manages well. I am a hero there because he told me "ever since I threw out that troublemaker he has never came back" .so he bought me a beer. P.S. I... More

Stopped on our way through and picked up some chicken to go. It was unbelievably delicious! We sat at the bar while we waited and everyone working was very friendly & chatty. Will definitely make it a point to drive up there sometime soon to enjoy a meal. Highly recommend!

we have been hearing about this bar/grill for a couple of years, many people raving about the broasted chicken served there. We decided to finally go there on a late Sunday afternoon during peak fall color season. We were lucky to get a table right away as it was super busy. We waited about 5 minutes before anyone saw we... More

I heard great things about this establishment but I was very disappointed with the chicken. We ordered a 12 piece broasted to go. It was very over done and hard and chewy. In addition, another patron and I waited for a good five minutes before someone acknowledged we were waiting to pick up our orders. I wouldn't make it a... More

We eat here often, we live about 20 miles away. The chicken is fantastic. I also like their broasted potatoes with sour cream. Each time we go, doesn't seem to matter what night, they are busy. They are expanding. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but great food. Good value for your dollar. Beer is served in a frosty... More

I grew up going to the Brass Rail with family, and I am still dining here after 30+ years. They have the most amazing broasted chicken! I highly recommend the 1/4 dark with slaw, broasted potatoes, and Texas toast - you won't be disappointed.

Place is known for the chicken and boy, is it ever good. It's a very small place, but the food just makes up for it. Very good every time.
