“Special treatment”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We decided to do the dinner train for our anniversary. We received an extra glass of wine along with passes to a winery and the staff sang to us when they served dessert. Very cute.

“A Must Go!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The Newport Dinner Train is an outstanding family getaway while vacationing on Aquidneck Island or even if you are a local. Fit4Mom Newport also known as Stroller Strides of Newport coordinated a family night out for its members with the assistance of the outstanding staff during an extremely busy time of the year. In December, Newport Dinner Train held a "Polar Express" event that re-created some of the memorable events from the movie including Hot Chocolate, a visit to the North Pole, Caroling, and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Clause. The families had a blast. In addition, I have enjoyed the Dinner and train ride with my family and it was just as memorable as the Polar Express night. We love Newport Dinner Train and it's a constant recommendation to friends and family. A Must Go!

“Don't Waste Your Money”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Although the volunteers are passionate, knowledgeable, friendly and polite, this is a huge waste of time and money. Mostly you travel through residential and industrial areas. There was a great view of the decommissioned Saratoga and some of the bay. But your time and money would be best spent elsewhere.

“Not the dinner train but the Winterfest tour”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This was a special weekend event when the dinner train provided a one hour train ride on train cars built in the 1900's. The train was slow but the sights and narration by the conductor were great. I do not know if it is routinely offered but it is a nice break. The gentle rocking motion of the train caused several people to doze off.
