We went for my wife's cousin's birthday. I was expecting the worst. But they were very professional, the servers were amazing and on top of their game. The actors and Actresses were great. They were very into what they did and that made for a fun evening. The food was good, not the best cut of prime rib, but decent.... More

If you realize and understand that you are not going to a Broadway show and are not expecting a five star dinner then this experience should be enjoyable. The food, both quality and quantity, was much better than expected. Three different main courses were offered. We had a party of four so we were able to try all three. Everyone... More

I like taking train rides but I wish they had an old steam engine pulling the train not a diesel from the 70's.

An enjoyable evening of a train ride, nice dinner and entertainment all in one place and it all happens in about 2-3 hours, plus the scenery is nice from the train ride, Great performers and very tasty meal.

Very nice departure from a typical dinner out. Fun experience to eat on a moving train. The show is your typical small live theatre but done very well. All the actors did a great job, were well prepared and definitely kept your attention. The food was outstanding and served by a witty, efficient staff who added to the total experience.... More

I agree with all the other reviewers. Food, entertainment, service, were excellent. Just check out the location and driving route before you leave. It's not easy to find the boarding station. Our GPS led us to a warehouse area. If one of your group gets nervous waiting between courses, ask for the first coach which gets served first. The rest... More

My husband and I tried something different. He loves train rides so we had read about a mystery dinner train excursion and though we would give it a try. We were very happy with our choice. The train left Fort Meyers on time. The tables were set with white table clothes and linen napkins. On the table was a cheese... More

What a fun night. The cast made it very entertaining. We were expecting an average dinner but were very surprised at how wonderful it was. We both had the Prime Rib which was at least an inch thick and with loads of flavor. For desert, we had a coconut cake which was very good. The staff was very attentive. We... More

It was our 45th wedding anniversary and decided to try an unusual way to celebrate this year. The food was excellent, the staff courteous and anxious to please. The "who dun it" kept us guessing to the end. The actors were all very talented. I was concerned about the seating arrangements and thought I might feel a bit cramped. I... More
