We drove about an hour to get here and were not disappointed. The building design and decor is so interesting, inside and out. The train running above the dining rooms is fun for kids of all ages. The food was really good. The meat loaf is the best I've ever had. Pizza was amazing, pot pie, delicious. No one in our party was disappointed. The only disappointment is that none of us had room for dessert.

Service was excellent, attentive, friendly. Very cool bar area. Unique outside eating area. The designers went "industrial strength" when finishing this steel worker themed eatery. It's worth it just to stop and see the building but, go on inside and enjoy the food.

I have come here a few times with my family. The building is so unique, and the train is always a hit with the kids. A couple recommendations are the pot roast mac and cheese, and the model t turkey are wonderful. The food can take awhile but it definitely is well worth it.

Very cool bldg. w/American industrial revolution flair. Had the Tradesman sandwich, was one of the best sandwiches I have ever ate. Our waitress, Aeleah was very attentive to what we wanted and explained everything to us being that we were first time visitors. The fried green beans with wasabi sauce was awesome. We live 80 miles away but would surely make the trip again. The manager made sure we got the American cheesecake on our way out at no cost. The next time we will bring friends. Plenty of hamburgers, pizza, sandwiches and specials. $$

We drove up from Kankakee, IL we had the half ton burgers and the welded nachos. The staff was awesome, the manager came to greet us. The waitress even wrote directions to the drive in. I will definitely be back again
