About The Restaurant


Established in 2021 and located in the heart of downtown Worcester, Off The Rails will feature southern BBQ complimented by a full country style bar with 20 tap lines and cocktails showcasing a southern flair. Live music will be performed on weekends inside the Nashville style venue that includes guitars and authentic country music memorabilia throughout. Whisky barrels and reclaimed wood highlight the interior design with a focus on a cool southern vibe.

“We wanted to bring a little bit of Nashville to Worcester,” said managing partner Chris Besaw. “Off The Rails is a country themed restaurant and bar which will feature live music and performances to provide an experience not currently available in Worcester. ”

Our Entertainment team will book talent with a focus on country and soft rock performers to provide local and nationally acclaimed artists to our patrons.

Off The Rails restaurant and bar opened the Off The Rail Music Venue and Beer Garden in the spring of 2022. Off The Rails is owned by Cliff Rucker with Chris Besaw as the managing partner.

Off The Rails provides a fan friendly menu before, during, and after events at the DCU Center and Palladium to provide guests with a perfect spot to gather to ramp up or close out their evening in downtown Worcester.
