Cafe style

Came here on a suggestion and wasn't disappointed. I ordered the fish tacos. Had a choice of tilapia or cod. I went with cod and it was tasty. The shells were fried so that added a nice crunch to it. The service was good too.

This cafe is quite popular with a certain demographic and draws a breakfast crowd. I ordered a breakfast steak medium rare, and it came charred. Toast was limp. Eggs and potatoes were innocent of any seasoning, not even salt or pepper. On the other hand, there was plenty of grape jelly in packets. All right, this is sounding too negative,... More

We were staying in Jamestown at a hotel near this restaurant. We went on a Sunday morning at around 10am. There wasn't a greeter but there was a sign that said "please wait to be seated". It took about 5 minutes for us to have someone sit us. There was also a really long line for the cashier to pay... More

Old time flavor with friendly service. We usually go after church on Sunday for a treat. I get the hot hamburger sandwich and my friend gets a half one also. Good stuff and good prices.

we eat here whenever we visit our family, and always enjoy the big pancakes! love the train/railroad decor, hence the name. Sometimes, the crowd is a little older, but they know what's up with the good food.

Have eaten here several times. the restaurant offers a basic selection, nothing fancy but everything tastes much like home cooking. The staff is attentive and willing to work to satisfy whatever you need. Last visit was with a large group. No problem. They rearranged tables and made sure we had time to relax and visit.

Tired and Hungry from driving all day with kids in the car, so we hit the restaurant closest to our hotel. Place was quiet. This was a plus for us. The kids had burger baskets and we had the special which was Chicken Monterey with twice baked potatoes. They had a salad bar that was good, the bleu cheese and... More

Each time we have been there, it is mostly the older generation we see in there but the food is yummy, great pancakes and bisquits and gravy. Railroad theme with old school pictures. Great fresh baked goodies too.
