Had a great time on the dinner train for my birthday. The negative is that because I'm December-born, it gets dark way too soon. We still managed to get some nice views of Cincinnati at night. I really enjoyed the history and the staff were very friendly. We were paired with another couple at our table who were also very... More

We took the dinner ride {3 hours } about $80 per person. The coach ride {no dinner} was about $25 per person. Lovely coaches, atmosphere, and the food was very good. Service, waiters and the porters were just excellent. The views from the train were sometimes great and other times, just greenery. After dinner you can leave your coach and... More

We were not sure what to expect, but it exceeded our expectations! We always feel like when we go to dinner, we are rushed to finish, so this was such a relaxing evening just getting to sit and visit while enjoying our meal. Food was very good, ( we had prime rib, and our friends had the chicken). From the... More

We rode in the Silver Sword on 12/3/11 and had a wonderful time. We celebrated my wife's birthday. My prime rib was outstanding and her salmon was delicious. The on board staff was great. Thank you for making this a memorable evening for us. We will definitely do this again and bring friends next time.

My wife and I did the Cincinnati dinner train Saturday 3/31/13. For a unique anniversary dining experience it was a good choice. The food was good and warm even though prepared offsite. We had the prime rib. My wife requested well done and I requested medium. We both got well done, no major issue. For desert we shared the cheese... More

This is definitely a one of a kind dining experience in Cincinnati. The only thing I'm really not a fan of is it can be expensive, it does get a little long towards the end, and they will stick you with random people if you're a couple to fill tables. The last point could be great or not so depending... More

What a great way to spend an evening. The food was amazing. The Staff was very accommodating and professional. The only draw back was that it was dark and you could not see very much. The train itself was very well restored, it was beautiful. Highly recommend the Cincinnati Dinner Train.

The tickets for this dinner train were purchased for my wife and I as a gift. Although I am a train buff I had never heard of this dinner train and was looking forward to the evening. Your main course and dessert choices are made in advance via their website. We were told to park in the BBQ Review parking... More

My husband and I have been one the Cincinnati Dinner train twice and have thouroghly enjoyed it both times. Dinner is good, the staff is friendly and what an experience to be able to ride a train. I am young enough for train travel to have been replaced by airplanes by the time I was born so the evening was... More
