A long-time Woodbury staple, The Split Rail, is under new ownership! Veteran restaurateur Rachel Wilmot purchased the 230 Main St. S. eatery at the end of 2018 and re-opened it in January.
Though she is the new owner, Wilmot is no stranger to The Split Rail. Her first job was at The Split Rail back when she was 15 years old.
Before re-opening, Wilmot cleaned and painted the inside of the restaurant, and plans to work on the outside in the spring. Though many of The Split Rail’s menu options remain, Wilmot says they changed to a scratch menu with many natural and organic ingredients.
“My inspiration to own this business was to watch it transform into a very clean, cute gathering place,” Wilmot says. “People should visit us because the food is an amazing surprise. Almost everything is made from scratch with fresh veggies, meat, and natural and organic ingredients are a priority.”
Wilmot says people should visit to try The Split Rail’s house specialties. Each day they have house-made soup and New England clam chowder and on Fridays and Saturdays they have delicious house made lobster bisque and hot lobster rolls.
Every day, The Split Rail offers lunch specials and from scratch desserts, fresh brewed iced tea and coffee and beautiful salads. They also have some vegan and vegetarian items.The Split Rail Woodbury Restaurant Week Specials
