My 6 and 8 year old loved the uniqueness of it.

We eat here every time we stay. Straightforward, good food, No guesswork or regrets. Staff has always been great.

Here you can sleep in a caboose and eat in a dining car of a train. It is adjacent to the Strasburg Railroad tracks so you can see the train to by and hear the whistle. There for lunchtime. Mostly sandwich choices.

We had lunch here, in July. Few tables. Menu is limited. (No liquor license). I would agree it's "diner food". If I remember correctly, we were given plastic ware to eat with. If you have little ones who are into trains, might be ok for them.

Very interesting concept (restaurant was a railway car; rooms are cabooses), but the breakfast was average diner breakfast. For our 4-year old train enthusiast, it was probably worth it.

We are looking very forward to staying at their railway hotel next year. Great views a long with a very unique idea for both the hotel room and restaurant. Food was very good and the service was outstanding. You cannot beat a meal in the middle of Amish Country.

HUGE portions at really modest prices. I doubt if anyone ever finishes everything on their plate. Even the ice cream sundaes are gigantic. Noted for turkey dinners -- really fresh. No alcohol license keeps dinner tabs down. Like many area restaurants, it closes early (around 8). It is popular and small, so we made a reservation. It may look a... More

Had an okay lunch in a really cool place. When the train came by, I could feel the car rumble. Bathrooms were off the site and dated. This was a fun place to watch the train, catch a buggy ride and even spend the night.
