An average place. Not spectacular but not bad. Food is ok. Kids chicken tenders was the hit at our table. Burger was ok. They charge you extra for tomatoes and onions?? Thought that was odd since it's not stated anywhere but whatever I didn't even say anything about it. We were passing through on a whim and may try a... More

Great breakfast, very fresh, homemade taste with lots of good coffee to start a day on the farm! My daughter had the apple french toast topped with fresh apples and cinnamon and whipped cream and she was in heaven! The area really loves using apples in lots of recipes and it was soo tasty!

Like eating in an old dining car. Very funky, and the breakfast was delish! My husband had the special with eggs, pancakes, bacon, ham and sausage. He's still alive to tell the tale too. Train living kids will be happy.

We were staying at the Red Caboose, my in-laws ate supper here and said it was very good. We ate breakfast here three days in a row, each time it was very good. The staff was super friendly and the service was great.

We were looking for a pleasant supper - and in a railroad dining car. Started with a delicious Amish friendship bread. The kids menu was reasonable, with your entry, drink and dessert. The grand-kids had the spaghetti and meatballs and the grill chicken breast and fries. We had the pull-pork special and the meatloaf. All were good. Maybe too much... More

We ate here after staying in a caboose the night before. It is an old train car which my boys think is awesome. The food is very good and reasonably priced for where it is. The tables are very close together so if you are sitting next to someone you feel like you are eating with them. Service was excellent... More

if you have kids you have to bring theme here for a meal. Have only been for breakfast but I'm sure every meal is adequate. You eat in a restored dining car that every once in awhile has a motor that starts up to give it the feeling like you're moving. Kids love it and just around the corner is... More

Was good, nothing to write home about service was great. I had a good burger as did my twin boys. My older son had the 7 inch kid pizza, my advice is do not get pizza from a non pizza place.

My five year old LOVES trains, so impromptu lunch in a train caboose was just her speed (even if it didn't go anywhere). We saw the real coal-powered train go by a few times. We walked by the 'petting zoo' of goats and chickens. She rode a few coin operated rides. And we both had an okay lunch for $20.... More
