My husband took me on the dinner train for our anniversary. The food was very good (prime rib entree) and the portions huge! (Way more than I could eat.). The service was excellent. The train ride was interesting but the scenery was not exceptional. We would have enjoyed the evening much more if the train had not been so COLD!... More

My husband and I booked the murder mystery trip. The food was very good and the service excellent but I was very disappointed in the entertainment and the train ride itself. The actors were local and ok it just didn't seem to get anyone's attention in our car anyway. It was short and while hard to act in an aisle,... More

Little pricey but food was good. Excellent staff, very informative on the sights along the route. If you are travelling with someone in wheel chair give yourself plenty of time for getting on board.

This is a really good time for family and Kids. The meals are excellent. Train ride is a little too short, but the kids love it. It is a really good time to spend with little kids. We have made this a tradition.

Some people complain about price but hear me out. Go to lunch. The food portions are massive and so delicious. The train is an authentic 1940s train and it feels like stepping into the past. Wife and I each had three courses, all the water and coffee we wanted and I had bourbon for 140 dollars. Well worth it for... More

The food and service was good. The prime rib was excellent however, the chicken was very bland. Paid extra for the Mystery Dinner Show and it was a total joke. Sorry that I paid the extra for the so called entertainment.

Dinner very good. Service very good. Ride could be better. Need more narration on what we're seeing. We picked up brochure explaining what we were seeing we wouldn't have known much.& we still missed some. At every point of interest there should be narrated information.

We were so excited for this adventure! I can't say enough nice things about the train and the staff. Everyone was so nice and the ambiance couldn't be improved. With that said, the food was awful. First course was a crepe with whole grain mustard (really?). For the second course, I got the house salad (baby greens, mandarin oranges, dried... More
