Had took advantage of a living social coupon and eat here. We did eat here about 15 years ago. I had the ham and turkey club w/ fries and cole slaw... yum! The cole slaw was great and the ham had a flavor of its own. The fires were fresh cut potatoes and cooked nicely. My wife had a cheeseburger... More

Went there last night 7-21-14.. for a family dinner expected a unique experience, well thats what we had to say the least. The food was terrible , cold and presented very poorly. The waitress was very unkept looking rather trashy. The cleanliness was extremely lacking . Pass this pass by .. Unique looking from outside total crap on the inside.ar

We went here during the week for dinner. The train was cool and our twin boys (age 5) liked it. They have a good sized gift shop next to the restaurant. The food was very good. The train conductor(?) came out and pressed a button that caused the whole restaurant to shimmy a bit and make sort of a clicking... More

This was the first time to the restaurant. We would go again. The cost was fair and there is a senior dinner section in the menu. The cost is from five to fifteen dollars. The restaurant is an actual train diner car. Try it you will like it!

We were staying at the Red Caboose Motel, so we went to the restaurant right there for breakfast. The atmosphere was very cheerful and was actually a train car. As you are eating the train car makes the sound of a train engine and shakes back and forth a little to give you the "real feel" of eating on a... More

We accidentally came by this restaurant near to their closing time. We were with my daughter, her husband and their 3 boys, ages 2,4 and 6. They very graciously welcomed us into the railroad dining car and patiently served our gang. The car was so cute. Our grandsons loved it! The owner allowed our oldest grandson to work the device...

The idea of eating on a train car as the real trains pass through the parking lot is great for kids and train lovers. Breakfast could use a little help as the pancakes weren't the greatest and the homefries were dry.

Something about staying on a farm in Amish country accelerates the appetite! This was breakfast in a dining car with all the choices one could want.

Food was good and inexpensive, delightful experience eating in an old dining car. Having breakfast sitting looking at the Amish countryside and watching the buggies go by was an added bonus

This was awesome! The staff is so friendly! Great place for couples and families. They do a great job catering to both. You get to sleep in a train car!! What else needs to be said. The dinning car was nice and the food was good. You can walk right out by the tracks and see/hear the train come by.... More
