“My kids' favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is where we head for birthday mornings and dates with mom or dad. The plates are big, the atmosphere is so fun on a real railroad car and the gravy/onion/cheese they put on hashbrowns make them incredible!

“Breakfast and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

So much personality. Good breakfast too! A small dine built in a rail car. Very extensive menu, covering meals for all times of the day.

“Historic Railroad Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

To sit at the bar and visit with the cooks while watching your food be prepared is a great experience. Plus, if you like biscuits and sausage gravy along with chicken fried steak, well, you are in hog heaven.

“Great Breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Really good breakfasts, consistent, quick, good service. Lunch and dinner typical diner food but nothing really special. Offer senior dinners but very small portions and quality control isn't in place (turkey fat, bones etc). Packed on the weekends plan to wait or opt to sit at the counter. Offer heat and hot coffee outside during in-climate weather for breakfast service.
