Like a lot of people who live near the border, we frequently drive to Ogdensburg to pick up groceries we can't get in Canada. Honestly, we usually eat at subway because every restaurant we've tried prior to the Freight House was terrible. The Freight House is great though. Incredibly friendly and accommodating service from our server and the manager (maybe... More

Went here for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the train displays, most are huge G scale, with four running at once. A small tutorial from one of the waitresses made this trip enjoyable. Food was good, service was excellent and the draft beer was ice cold!! Will return again.

Stopped here for lunch as we were in town to see the Remington Museum. We were there about 3pm between the lunch and dinner hours. The waitress was friendly. We ordered beverages and sandwiches. Basic American fare. It was all good and not over priced at all. Yes I would go back to this place.

I've eaten here 100's of times. Whether it's dinners, wedding receptions, date night with the wifey, even class reunions, I've never had a bad meal. It always tastes fresh and delicious. It's such a relaxing place to eat, you can lose track of time pretty easy. I can't help but smile and enjoy my wives company. The history of the... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the Freight house, with the rail atmosphere to occupy us while waiting. Model trains run overhead, and all sorts of ephemera are attached to the walls. If you are interested in railroading, a visit to this restaurant is worth the trip. The food was good, our buns arrived steaming hot, just out of the... More

My wife and I had dinner here our first night in Odgensburg, NY and found this gem. The place wasn't really too busy, so we had the full attention of our waitress. Our meals were surprisingly good for saying we were not in a big city. Too bad we don't live closer.

ARRIVED AT 5:30 AND FINALLY GOT OUR FOOD AT 7:00. Our waitress apologized profusely at the beginning, but you could tell she was as frustrated as we were. My fish was cold and husbands prime rib was over cooked. We had to beg for rolls which were finally delivered, with the tiny salad, at 6:30. Never did get a refill... More

Great home feel to this restaurant with meatloaf, liver and onions, as well as the usual steak and prime rib on the menu. Some quesidia mexican style dishes and full service bar. Is wheel chair accessible. Has model trains running over the eating area to highlight the train history of the freight house for trains that it is designed after.... More
