“Have yet to have a complaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We have been here several times with my parents. Let me just say that this restaurant is not by any means convenient for us...it is about 50 miles from home. But my parents like it so we make the voyage from time to time. That said, I have never been disappointed in the food quality. The only down side is that the menu does not change much. So if you find an item you like, chances are you will find it next time around. The atmosphere is pleasant, and there is plenty for young eyes to enjoy.

“Review of the Depot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Has gone down in food quality !!!

Have ate there every September for about 4-5 years....
I have ordered the Prime Rib and this years was the worst.

The bar there seemed more crowded this year with poor service.....

Maybe next year, it will be better...

“Train Fanatics Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I won't say this was a perfect place. It was raining so we could not sit in one of the rooms due to rain coming in. And if you don't like trains, you probably won't find it too cool.

But if you DO like to watch trains, or like model trains, then you will probably like this place. And it doesn't hurt that the food is pretty good. When you come in, you see a (non-working) model train display. To the right is a bar, to the left is a restaurant. You step up to eat at tables in the main area, although there are other tables along the wall.

There is another (non-working) model train that looks like it used to run around the room. But if you like trains, the best part is watching trains pass. There is two active train lines outside the back. In the time I ate there, three trains passed.

As to the food, some items were more pricey, others more reasonable. I tried the Angus Burger made by a local ranch and I found it very good and the price was reasonable. The only thing I did not like was the "biscuits" if you can call it that. They were small and hard and made me think of scones. As a disclaimer, my boyfriend liked them.

Service was a bit slow, considering there were only two tables being served at the time of the visit, but not so slow that I would refuse to go back. It was getting near closing and might have been due to them cleaning.

“Nice setting, but doesn't live up to the hype.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

I've wanted to eat here for years so I was really excited to have dinner here. The fried green tomatoes were the best I've ever had but the entrees were not spectacular at all. I was disappointed in the average food.
