Best Prime I have ever had.
We had heard about Clarksville Station and decided to go there after the UNC vs Miami game. We went with our dentist and his friend that we went to the game with. The service and food was excellent. Our waitress gave us the utmost attention and made suggestions that proved out right. Mr Adler, the owner, came to our table and recommended the prime rib which I had. It was almost melt in your mouth good. Never had better. The only problem was we were served such a large portion that I barely had room for Mr Adler's own personally cooked desserts. They were fantastic. I shall return again with other friends to enjoy the food and ambience of a train and depot station.
New Owner at Clarksville Station.
My husband took our two young sons and I to Clarksville Station for dinner last night. This was the first time that we had been since the new owner, Mr. Adler, took over.
Service was very good, as it always has been. Our waitress was very attentive and courteous. We ordered the special, 10 oz. New York Strip, and it was cooked to perfection. Our food was hot and fresh, and the salad bar was clean and well-stocked, even at 9:30pm (they close at 10pm). We were too full to order dessert, but the new owner makes cakes and pies, so new dessert additions were on the menu. All in all, I am glad we decided against our usual Friday night trek to Durham.
DON'T Take the Last Train to "Clarksville Station".
My husband and I recently relocated to North Carolina. This restaurant came recommended. We called in an order to be picked up. I ordered the "Catch of the Day", Tuna. It was supposed to grilled with lemon and butter. It was completely tasteless and so overcooked that it was inedible. My husband ordered the shrimp and scallops Norfolk. They were overcooked and rubbery. I called to speak to a manager, and one was not available. The young woman who answered the telephone told me that someone else ordered the tuna and did not complain. Yes. She actually said that to me. I explained that perhaps their tuna was not cooked until dry and tasteless. She also said, (get this...) they were known for their steaks. As if that would suddenly make my over-priced, inedible meal better. IT DIDN'T!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. THE FOOD IS BAD AND THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS WORSE!
Relocated train station=restaurant with relaxed ambiance.
I enjoyed a weekday lunch at Clarksville Station on a recent vacation day. I ordered a grilled cheese and a side salad, and my boyfriend ordered another kind of sandwich and the salad bar. Although this restaurant is known for its steaks, I enjoyed the sandwich and salad as a vegetarian, and my boyfriend especially enjoyed the salad bar.
The service was also very good. At the end of the meal, we asked our server for suggestions on what to see in Roxboro, and she gave us wonderful advice in checking out the Person County Museum of History.
I enjoyed the restaurant's decor, which was quaint and well done. There were a number of old pictures and things on the walls around the restaurant, and a statue of a Native American in the corner. (It reminded me a little of the one on the set of "Cheers.") The women's restroom was called the "Necessary Room for Ladies."
The outside of the restaurant has a train station feel as well, along with signs and other attachments on the main building, and a side building or two as well.
The food that we ordered seemed fairly priced, and the parking was ample and convenient.
It was a fun visit, and I would recommend it to others.
