“Declined over the years”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

As a child my family frequented here often, as time went by the steak cuts got cheaper and the price didn't. The lobster tail was overcooked and disappointing. The food in general is good, the service is good the bar is really good, the environment is an experience all by itself relating to town history.

“It's okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Some people absolutely love this place. It used to be "the" place in town to eat, but now that Eugene has grown, there are definitely better places. It's not horrible, though, and they'll let you park there for free if you're going to a show at the Hult Center.

“Classy & Unique, but a Bit Dated and Hit or Miss Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

We have eaten here several times over the last few years, and it has always been for more of a special occasion, since it is a pricey restaurant. It has a very unique atmosphere since you can sit in tables that are actually inside old train cars. It has a country club sort of feel to it... a little dated, but still classy and unique which we have always enjoyed!

Service is regularly quite good, and the food is hit or miss I would say. Some of it is fairly overpriced, but we were recently there for my fiancee's birthday and I had a fantastic pasta dish that was not on the menu. I ordered their mixed seafood pasta dish, but instead of the rich cheesy sauce, I requested a lighter white wine sauce, and it was DELICIOUS! The vegetable lasagna is also quite good, and the salads are nice. I have not heard great things about their meat dishes though. Good seafood and pastas for sure though generally!

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We had never eaten at this restaurant in all our years in Eugene, but once we tried it we'll certainly be back. The food and service was great and the seating areas inside vintage passenger railcars creates a unique experience!

“Very over-rated place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Even though the atmosphere is good here, the meals are disappointing. Their sirloin steak is very grisly, and the vegetables were too oily. I've tried this restaurant several times, and I finally decided not to return because of the poor quality.
