This place is set inside rail cars - so space is limited! Surely during the summer they must seat outdoors (under the canopies). But when the fall rolls around there are just a few booths at the back of the car itself and the kitchen...More

We went there for lunch after Major Marine Tours. It is train themed and so crowded. Service was slow but food tasted good.

Stopped here for brunch since my son loves trains. Very unique place to eat. Had the chicken fried steak. Food was delicious and view was amazing. I would eat here again next time I’m in Seward.

Seated at noontime & told only lunch would be served. We made our decision quickly but had to wait 20 minutes to place our order - only after I asked if we could order. After another wait, we were told as soon as they finish...More

The green chili stew was legit - even by New Mexico standards. Delicious - spicy but not too spicy. Perfect on an overcast day in Seward. Friendly, quick service despite being really busy. Will definitely go back and try other dishes.
