Great music, ambience. Food a little standard so if you need a culinary experience have an early dinner in the town :)
I have done The Blues Train twice now whilst visiting Melbourne from the UK. It is now on my list of "Must Do's" for all future trips to Melbourne. It's a great night and has top acts.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your time on The Blues Train - and an extra special Thank You for joining us from the UK. Make sure you come up & say hello next time you ride with us. All the best The Blues Train team. More
The Blues Train is like a good wine - it just keeps getting better with age. Another fantastic night with great company, excellent and varied entertainment and yummy food! We have converted our neighbours and our international visitors just loved the total experience! Keep up the great work Blues Train Team - we will be back!!
We are thrilled that you are a part of The Blues Train family & that you bring your friends & relatives with you! Thanks for taking the time to write of your experience & we look forward to seeing you again out on The Rails! More
Friends and I went on the blues train on Friday night, and were treated so poorly by staff that I would never recommend the experience to anyone. The staff were not at all welcoming, and were actually condescending, reminding us of the RSA rules and how they wouldn't be responsible for anyone - fair enough. Between the four of us,... More
Upon arrival, it was clear to the Proprietor and security that the patrons were intoxicated. As a licensed venue, under Victorian Liquor Licensing Laws it is an offence to admit any patron/s who are deemed intoxicated into a licensed venue. Upon their arrival, the patrons in question were briefed on Responsible Serving of Alcohol and were monitored to ascertain their... More
The musicians were excellent. Enjoyed moving from carriage to carriage at each stop. Would limit the alcohol intake for some older female passengers, we had one particularly obnoxious female in our carriage who got worse and worse as the night wore on, sitting in the laps of men she did not know, very embarassing to watch. I thought the security... More

As Hugo says in his speech, get to know your security guard as they are there to help - so anytime you feel that you need to... More
I recently travelled on the blues train and was full of high expectations after hearing a number of people say how good it was. Yes the entertainment and the concept was fantastic... All the bands were top notch.... However, service, staff , food and drinks left ALOT to be desired. Firstly the attitude of staff towards patrons was condescending ,... More
Thank you for taking the time to review your experience on The Blues Train. We are first and foremost an entertainment experience - we are not a restaurant nor do we market the experience as such. There are new port-a-loo toilets at the first stop (Suma Park) as well as a new 'fixed' toilet block. Toilets at Queenscliff & Drysdale... More
We went on the blues train on Saturday night for the second time and like previously were not disappointed great line up and awesome atmosphere, my only complaint like others is the price for refreshments is obscene charging $40 for a bottle of wine and $8 a stubby or cider(which was barely drinkable) come on.
Firstly, apologies for taking a while to respond to your review. Our wine range starts from $26.00 a bottle. We are more than happy to refund (and have done so from time-to-time) any bottle of wine deemed by the purchaser as "undrinkable". The same goes for any other drink. Please don't be shy about voicing concerns on the night, as... More
My partner and I went on the Legendary Blues Train on 25th January 2014. We had an absolute ball!! The atmosphere was just awesome! The only thing I could criticize is the food and the way they feed you, but you soon forget that, once you're on the train! The acts/artists we're just amazing! Alistair Turill was our favourite, a... More
As we feed over 200 people, with varying tastes and likes, we make no apologies for the fact that the food is wholesome and fresh. There is a range of condiments available to 'spice things up' if you prefer food with a bit more of a 'zing'. Thanks for being a part of the Legends of Australian Blues nights -... More
This was a very unique experience. Dinner on the station a bit ordinary especially trying to eat it on your lap! Drinks expensive and carriages and fit out looking very tired BUT the five of us had a great time. All the four acts were fantastic and we really enjoyed being able to dance and enjoy the music and singing.... More
Thanks for taking the time to review your time with us on The Blues Train. As you probably noticed we feed over 200 people each night, with varying tastes in food. There are condiments to add to the food to 'spice things up'. The Blues Train operates on a heritage vintage train and is maintained by a dedicated team of... More
Well, what a cracker. A group of 10 of us on a weekend away in December 2013 went on the famous red rattler and what a trip it was. First up was dinner served on the station and eaten in the carriage with a tray on our knees,but hey,the food is just an alcohol soaker upperer! Seriously trough guys,$40.00 for... More
We would like to apologise for the delay in responding to your review & would like to thank you for taking the time to detail your experience with us. As The Blues Train operates on a heritage vintage train, Carriage B is the only carriage that doesn't have table facilities for dinner, hence trays to place plates on to eat... More
