The five stars are for the memories. Though towards the end the quality became somewhat inconsistent, for many years this was one of the best options in town. Certainly it was one of the more aesthetically pleasing places to have a fine dining evening in the area. The brunches and buffets were usually a great experience. Tasty food and an... More

One of the best places to eat in Peru is now just a memory. It used to be a wonderful place to eat but has since been sold and the train cars will soon be gone.

I only ever go to The Siding for brunch on Sunday. I do not like choosing from the menu and it is quite pricey. Brunch is always amazing! The beeeeest fried chicken in the world. I always love the food that they have on the buffet. I wish Ron would make some more macaroons! Those were great!

It used to be the place to go to. Now, sadly it needs a thorough scrubbing and revamping. The last couple times we attended my food was spoiled.

I am not sure this place is still open. The last time we were there the food has gone down hill. They used to have a great seafood buffet but that has stopped. We might try to see if they are open soon. It was once a great place to dine.

The food was decent and the decor was pretty cool. You could eat in a train car, but I wouldn't recommend it during the cold season.

My wife and just love to come here and have dinner. The food, the service, and the atmosphere are always excellent. The freshly battered onion rings were the best and the prime rib was outstanding. Couple the great food with eating on a train car and it's by by chain steakhouse for me.

Decades ago this place was tops - now it's a box/can/frozen food reheating establishment. Décor is aged - service is okay - just one big disappointment after another.

I don't know where to begin. The appetizer had hair and plastic. The meal was not fully cooked and took over an hour. They weren't busy. This is the far worst experience with my family I have had in years. The cramps on the ride home were unreal. DO NOT RECOMMEND!
