Drawing inspiration from the success of his steakhouse’s bar menu, award-winning chef Mike Mariola founded The Rail in 2011 as a full-service burger restaurant and bar suitable for any occasion.

The Rail’s burgers are honest and local; 100% of the beef used in our restaurants comes from local farms. The well-rounded menu also features local chicken, local dairy products used in our milkshakes, draft beers born and brewed in Ohio and craft cocktails with spirits from local distilleries.

We take our beer and cocktail selection as seriously as we take our burgers. We highlight a locally curated cocktail and beer list with spirits from Ohio-based distilleries and beers from Ohio-based breweries, rounding out the complete Rail experience. 

The Rail has received several awards over the years including:

  • Big Seven Travel's Best Burgers in Cleveland (2019, 2020)

  • Cleveland Silver Spoon Award (2020)

  • Best Burger in Stark County (2018)

  • People's Choice Award - Taste of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (2017, 2019)

  • Best in Show - Burger Wars (2017)
