What a wonder job they have done on this adventure for young and old (mostly young). From the greetings by Mrs. Clause to the ticket punch by Mr. Conductor it was a Polar Express fantasy brought to life. A visit from Santa himself topped things off!! I highly recommend this for Parents and Grandparents. The meal, Movie Santa experience for all.

This is a nicely decorated, very appealing restaurant; however, the menu is extremely limited. The bar does an excellent amount of business. The food is limited, as stated, and average at best. Wish it was better

What a wonderful time. My wife and I took our five year old granddaughter for this magical night. Starting off with a visit to Mrs. Claus to check in. We were met by Mr. Conductor where our tickets were punched just like in the movie. The old train car was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Large screen Tv were set up so all tables had a great view. Santa's elf brought drinks and then we went to a buffet dinner. The lights were lowered and the movie starts. When Santa's arrival in the movie comes , the real Santa enters the car and visits each child. Needless to say the squeals of joy filled the room. I would recommend this adventure to parents and grandparents
.Well thought out and organised.

We were passing through Delaware at dinner time and decided to stop. My first impression was not good - I should have followed my instincts. It was very noisy. We asked to be seated in the back of the restaurant - away from the bar. We prefer a restaurant that we can communicate with one another while dining. That didn't happen. I chose a salad which was just ok - nothing special for $10.00 and no meat just salad, craisins, nuts and an egg. My husband had an enchilada - it was raw and soggy and the filling was not very good. As I said it was our first visit and our last.

We're really sorry to hear that you didn't have a great experience with us. We take a lot of pride in the food we serve, so it is disheartening to know that it did not meet your expectations. We hope you're willing to give us another shot in the future so we have the opportunity to make it up to you.

If you' looking for something different, check this place out. You can choose to eat in a beautiful rail car rather than their main restaurant. The rail car is quieter dining and is really pretty inside, especially at night. The food was delicious, service was great, portions were decent sized, and prices were reasonable.
