This restaurant is located in the Crown Center, the streetcar is integrated into the restaurant. I was there on a late Sunday afternoon, I was the only there, and the service was quick. The burger was pretty good.

My family ate here this past Sunday. Upon entering the restaurant, it looked charming and inviting. We were seated in the streetcar, which my young boys thought was pretty neat (so did I). Problems started, however, right after ordering. I quickly found out, after I downed my first glass, that you are only allowed 1 refill on soda. They charge... More

Meals were served with disposable plates and silverware. Waitress was less than interested in taking our order and seemed to be bothered. We went back because we were there ten years ago and loved it.. Something has changed.

This place within a place is a fun spot for eating. It's a street car in Crown Center. The food is good and family-friendly.

The restaurant staff was great, but the cheese on my cheeseburger tasted like processed nacho cheese and not good cheddar. Probably wouldn't go back when there are other better choices nearby.

My daughter order chicken wings and the were so hard she couldn't even pull off the meat. The service was even worse than the food. The waitress was curt and... More

This little restaurant doesn't look like much when you're walking by, but they actually have great food and great service. I will definitely be returning here when I am in town this July.

Great Steak Sandwich! My buddies and I went there late on a Tuesday and had excellent service and a truly wonderful Steak Sandwich. Drinks were properly mixed, as well!
