While riding the railroad we saw this neat looking restaurant to stop and eat on before heading out of town. The train car dining idea is great, you can even feel the car seat when a train rolls past. However several signs stating your children must remain seated posted on the walls. Understandable the isle is narrow, but the kids... More

We were not impressed. Food was something I could prepare myself. Very little space to eat, but I realized that before going since it's a rail car. Museum area was OK. Would not recommend.

Always perfect to stay the night, have a great meal, and enjoy the views of the trains going by. Very close to all the Lancaster, PA events and shows.

The atmosphere is fun. The inside of the restaurant is sweet: train clock on the wall, old fashioned newspaper ad table cloths, a real old caboose turned eatery. The waitresses are nice but ours wasn't very "with it". The place is very small and the acoustics were amazing: we heard EVERY single screech, scream, whine and yell of every child... More

Food was good and so was the service. Must had your server turn on the simulator to experience the motion of travel while eating. It was fun.

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.
