Great dining atmosphere in an actual 1947 Budd Dining Car. The restaurant and bar are named after the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, run by Amtrak from Washington, DC to Miami. The Rainbow Trout is delicious. Nice wine list too.

Took a bunch of picky, foodie, colleagues from France and they loved it! For appetizers we loved the warm goat cheese in a spicy tomato sauce served with brioche toast. Their onion soup is fantastic. Their famous Three Little Pig sandwich should be shared unless...More

What the hell is this place? It's like a bar affixed to a train car with tiny tables and 50s pin-up girls on the walls. As you sit there, it has a "secret clubhouse" feel - the kind of hideout you'd want up in a...More
