I rode the Cincinnati Dinner Train in celebration of my mother's 60th birthday. The train was nicely restored and service was excellent. The dinner was decent - not remarkable but a good meal. The train ride was nice, especially on the southern part of the route where there was more to see. I've done a number of other tourist trains... More

My hubby and I just returned from a trip to Cincinnati to ride the Cincinnati Dinner Train. I had read about it online but had never actually talked to anyone who had done this activity. We are old train buffs and we were very impressed with the job they did of renovating all of the old dining cars. We rode... More

We enjoyed the ride and the prime rib dinner very much. Dont expect to have a great view though. Pretty much the back side of everything. Have to say even though you realize they have to pay for fuel and wait staff, it feels pretty expensive. And the tip is not included. They e pect that payment on line when... More

Went on the Dinner Train last year for Mothers's Day. Just went again with one other couple. This is a wonderful night out. Dinner was great & the servers were very attentive. Fun to ride on the train & see all the different train cars, or you can just sit & relax at your table. They do have a car... More

This trip was a blast!! The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding! We really enjoyed being part of the murder mystery. We loved how interactive it was and how you could actually be able to be part of the show. The price is high but more than worth it. I recommend this to anyone.

This was an enjoyable experience. The food was very good. The people were friendly. You take a train ride down to the river and back. It was a beautiful evening. We had a wonderful time.

This is not a mountain scenic train trip but it is a classy, eloquent dinner train. It was a great way to celebrate our anniversay. We shared our table with another awesome couple and shared lots of stories. We did get to see some beautiful homes and hear some valuable history. This would be a nice gift to give someone... More

Finally made decision to try the dinner train in Cincinnati . Ride was good, food was good ,service was good,BUT , instead of so much service help,there is a need for a person to be in each dining car detailing what we are passing with some fun facts or just plain old history. Smokey mt. Train in NC provides this... More

Reservations are a must. The earlier the better to get in the car of your choice. We dined in the Milwaukee car with beautiful art deco dividers of Union Station in Cincinnati. Upon your arrival you are greated by Queen City singers to set the time back to 1940's along with conductors in uniforms of the same time period. While... More
