Station 885's friendly staff packs plates with scrumptious meals culled from timeless American entrees.

A bevy of salads, sandwiches, and pizzas also hold court throughout the day, as the classic cobb salad ($8.99 at lunch, $11.99 at dinner) cavorts with the Hot Toni Express ($7.99 at lunch, $8.99 at dinner), a french-dippable array of rib-eye slices kept warm under a blanket of hot-pepper mix, grilled onions, and mozzarella. Tipples from the wine menu perk up all manner of dining and act as trusted mediators in scrimmages between lunch and dinner napkins.
Station 855 was constructed on the site of the Chesapeake freight house more than a century ago. Relax in the casual comfort of the restaurant's fireplace-fitted dining room or in its outdoor seating area while you and your dinnermates discuss the icy ingenuity that went into Station 885's Large Snow Cone and tiniest ice cube.
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.
