Fun decor. Delicious breakfast.

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

couple a TRAIN CAR and a store together and you begin to get the experience. Food is good, price is good, and the store and surrounding area are not to be missed. Attached to the restaurant is a souvenir shop and an area loaded with coin-operated games of days gone by. This restaurant also features a motel of sorts. Each... More

Service was fair, food was okay. Not much room as it is a train car. All tables are set for 4 and the aisle down the center is tight. Felt like we were on a real train though and the kids loved that.

The breakfast was the best,hot , very tasty and reasonably priced. We were disappointed in the dinner the first night. Supposed to be Amish cooking, but found the meatballs and meatloaf very bread filled.
