The 2 & 1/2 hour train ride with a first class dinner was terrific. It's a bit pricey , but then think of the cost of diesel fuel , a full kitchen car and the crew needed to bring it all together. The food was excellent and our waitress "Dottie" was very good. The portions are BIG so everyone is sure to be pleased. We had to send some back !
Contrary to another review our food was moist and tender . The appetizer was good and we ordered the cheese and fruit tray. Our waitress brought our cocktails in a very timely manner. I had the chicken and my wife had the pork , and both were excellent. For us it was a once in a lifetime experience so we paid for a private table and weren't disappointed at all.
Only complaint was that it was crowded and therefore very noisy , but that's the people , not the crew!
We had the Choo-choo dessert (see photo) and if you're a chocoholic it's the way to go !!!
And they skimp on the gin in our gin & tonics for sure.
