This place is small but since we got there early we were seated right away. The cook's kitchen area is likewise small so he can only cook a few things at once but everything looked delicious and everyone was cleaning their plates! We had pancakes: light, fluffy, huge, and so good! Apparently the cook makes his owned corned beef in... More

This is the best breakfast place I have ever been to!!!! We went there two days in a row and ordered the same meal (Huevos Rancheros). The waitress was busting her butt, as it was packed, and was from my home state (Go Bucks!). Great food, cool atmosphere, a must while in Seward!!!

This little restaurant is in an old RR car. It has 6 booths and breakfast is prepared one table at a time. They have delicious homemade sausage and pancakes, as well as eggs, etc. It's nothing fancy, but if you enjoy eating in little local joints, then this place is for you! It's worth the wait!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed dining at the Smoke Shack in Seward, especially being that the restaurant is an old railroad car. The food was fantastic (my husband said it was the best Philly cheesesteak he's ever had) and the music was fun and fitting. Wear warm clothes as the dining car is drafty and the small, and you...

There were 5 of us and we all loved our lunches. We had a burger, green chili pork burritos, philly sandwich, and a pulled pork sandwich. Only wish we had time to go back and try more items on the menu.

We ate here for breakfast one morning. The food was great. The service was second to none. And the atmosphere was unique. A must visit if you are in Seward.

We walked to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. It looked like a cool little place, so we figured it was worth a shot! The interior of the railroad car has been converted into plywood booths, so there wasn't much for ambiance. We could see right into the kitchen because there is no separation at all from... More

This was a very small restaurant located in a train car. Since tourist season has not yet begun there are limited choices in where we could eat breakfast so we were willing to give this place a try! There were numerous train cars around it in a triangle (took a few minutes to locate the actual door) and, once inside,... More
