  • Well worth going thru after having dined in their superb restaurant. Mecca for train lovers. Give yourself a couple of hours to truly absorb all that is there. 
  • This is a fantastic collection of railroad artifacts and memorabilia. There is a new display of an HO train set that has it's own room. Children would love it! We were fortunate to have a tour by the ...  more »

  • If I was reviewing on the food alone, this would probably be a 3 or 4 star review. While the food tasted good, it wasn't great. It was just a little bit overpriced for what you get. But it wasn't so bad that I wouldn't go back. But this location is not just about food and I cannot review it on food alone. The atmosphere in the restaurant was fun. There were multiple trains that moved around tracks suspended from the ceiling. The menu had train themed meals. For example, I had one of their signature dishes - the John Henry - essentially a bacon cheeseburger. The service was good, almost great. They kept your drinks filled and even provided me with a drink to go. The drink to go was appreciated as I then took it with me to tour through the museum. Like the meal, it was just a little overpriced - but not so much so that I don't want to come back and bring others. The tour guide really made it worth it. He was knowledgeable, funny, and laid back. The museum itself was much more interesting than I ever expected a train museum to be. There were all kinds of fun artifacts and new things to learn. I don't want to spoil it too much - you should go see for yourself! This is most certainly a great stop for any fan of trains and train history. But even if you don't care about trains, I think you would get a kick out of this place!
  • My family lives in the area, but I have never been. I was really impressed with the train memorabilia! I would never have expected something like this in the middle of nowhere. Definitely worth a visit if you're from out of town. The food itself seemed OK. I had a burger and it was good. Everyone else seemed to enjoy the food. There is also a railroad museum, but they charged. If you're a train fanatic, you have to go. I didn't go into the museum, but there were tons of things in the restaurant. I can't imagine how the owners can sustain the collection with just the restaurant. The amount of stuff inside and out was great.
  • Good food, good service, good prices. Friendly and helpful staff. A good destination for our get out of town trip of 2 hours.
  • Good food, friendly service and ice cream included.
  • Had lunch here for the first time today as we were traveling through the area. The food and service was very good. We were pleasantly surprised by the free scoop of ice cream after the meal. Definitely recommended.
