As you all know, I love sharing great restaurant finds – so here is another one!
Last Wednesday I took the boys to the Hamlin Station Bar and Grill, 52 Railroad Ave. in Hamlin.
This was our first time at this beautifully renovated old railroad station tucked away on a quiet side street in Hamlin.
The Hamlin Station opened in November 2010 and is owned and operated by Christine and Kevin Manna of Clarkson – who also own Performance Auto Parts on Drake Road in Clarkson.
Our meals at the Hamlin Station – whose executive chef is a former chef at the popular Bistro 135 in East Rochester – were fabulous.

I am picky about Marsala sauce, but decided to give the chicken Marsala a try and was so pleasantly delighted. Without a doubt, this is the best Marsala sauce I’ve had on the west-side.

 

The boys took advantage of the restaurant’s weekly Wednesday steak special – a 12oz NY Strip, served over garlic mashed potatoes with a side salad for $9.95.

They loved their perfectly cooked steaks and had plenty of leftovers. Aside from the Marsala, the meal stealer was desert.  The Hamlin Station only serves homemade deserts and are known for their delectable cheesecakes. We shared the chocolate cake and it was heavenly.

There is something really special about dining in an old railroad station – you can imagine the hustle and bustle and coming and goings back in the day. Speaking of goings, be sure to go check out the Hamlin Station yourself (they often have live music and special events as well) – I’m confidant you will be as happy as I was to find this hidden gem.
