this is a totally unique experience, where you eat inside a rail road car, right along side the runway, and dockyards. the Passenger Train also passes right along side. the food is good, and of a variety unique to Seward .

We ate here twice because the food was great, chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravey, and the crab benedict was wonderful, and the service was great, happy hostess and servers with a smile. Great way to start the day.

This place is such a quaint retreat for breakfast, sitting at small booths in an old rail car. The food is delicious, both times ordering the breakfast special (corned beef hash). The only situation is that it only has 6 tables, so if you are...More
