Dinner train trip

We decided to explore the good things close to home. We and another couple had reservations for a dinner trip. Although you only had a choice of 2 entrees the food was very good and so was the service. We also enjoyed the beautiful view when we went through the Bernheim Forest area. We plan to... read more

Very organized and boarded quickly. Welcome salad already on table. Quickly ordered drinks train started. Train was full but was easy to have conversations. Main salad was delivered with drinks. Staff are very professional and quick. Ordered Prime Rib and should be served on a bigger plate. Not the best grade of beef but Okay. Desert was served and the... More

Dinner was great, more than enough to eat starting with appetizer, followed by salad, entree, and dessert, includes drink. Train was beautiful, linens and china were a plus. The ride was 2 1/2 hours with scenery being mostly forest. Enjoyed sitting with another couple, which you will do if there are only two of you.

After having reservations for six months they called us two weeks before our trip and canceled very disappointing after waiting six months to enjoy this. How can you cancel on the 4th!

We went on this dinner train ride with another couple and we all thoroughly enjoyed it; It was like reliving the past. The first thing we noticed was the friendliness of the staff. The table setting was beautiful and the appetizers (included with the meal) were on the table for everyone: crackers with cheese, a special pimento spread and green... More

My husband and I chose the dinner Train for our 39th wedding Anniversary. We did the one with the show, "Death at the Alter." The show wasn't much, a little funny, but not worth the extra $25. dollars per. person that it cost. The food was wonderful we both got prime rib and was very pleased with it. If they... More

The food was excellent, can't beat their prime rib . The service was great! Only complaint depending on where you're sitting is the amount of time it takes to get your meal!

My husband and I chose the Dinner Train as a quick get-away to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. We were pleased with the setting and the ride through the countryside was nice. The food was so-so; definitely not what one would expect when paying over 80.00 per person. I became sick before leaving the train and was sick the rest... More

This lovely little train is a great way to spend an afternoon and early evening. The trip does not actually go many miles, but it is well done and provides you with just enough information, history, entertainment, etc., to keep you engaged between meal courses. The food was really very good, and well presented. The train itself is beautifully appointed... More

A trip through the rolling hills of Kentucky in an elegantly restored 1940's Dining Car. Where a wonderful meal that you have chosen is prepared and served. We choose Prime Rib and it was perfectly prepared and simply wonderful as was the remainder of the meal including a wonderful desert. It's not cheep but is in my opinion worth the... More
