For almost 30 years, the Costanza family has chaperoned a troop of juicy steaks and steaming pasta dishes through Station 885's warren of dining rooms, fireplaces, and the long, burnished-wood bar. Thick, broiled filet mignon and jambalayas enriched with andouille sausage and shrimp represent the menu's hearty steak-house-style fare, which is offset by stone-fired pizzas, and gluten-free and wheat pastas. Diners can cozy up in the fireplace dining room or twirl up a spiral staircase to a dining area above the bar. Throughout the restaurant, bowl-shaped art-deco lamps cast pools of light over white-linen tablecloths, recalling the site's origins as the Chesapeake freight house with its utilitarian elegance and penchant for trains.
