This is a cute place. It is novel to sit in an old fashioned train dining car. It had kind of a 40's charm. Think of the train scene in White Christmas. Other than that, nothing really stood out. The menu is varied. You can...More

We went here on a weekday and sat in the train car. It was very quaint and cozy. Tables were adorned with white linen tablecloths. I'd call it a dress casual type of place. The menu is varied and has everything from hamburgers to fine...More
