The breakfast buffet provides a good selection including made to order omelets,eggs, breakfast meat,fruit,oatmeal,breads,etc. The price is reasonable. This is a good meal stop before or after taking the train.

We enjoyed the train set and the shop at the cafe. Loved that this was like an all-inclusive experience. Easy to serve at the buffet or navigate even with our 2yr old. Lots of options for all meals daily. Was happy to have a bar available for a nightcap after a long train & touring day. Very family friendly environment... More

Breakfast was really good. Loved the omelet station. I went back for a second. The ran out of food for lunch and we got our money back.

Food may have been geared to young children tastes but the adults have to bring the young children and they like more than hotdogs and chicken nuggets. Also, somehow the food needs to get to the table while still warm. Would not recommend.

Buffet was adequate. Not a very large variety of vegetables. Nothing indicated any of the dishes were gluten free. How hard would it be to add a GF sticker! In today's world, they need to keep up with peoples restrictive diets. Obviously no one in the corporate headquarters has a relative that needs or wants GF foods. Buffet was over... More

Average buffet but with a very friendly staff. At breakfast, definitely opt for made-to-order eggs or omelet, as the scrambled eggs on the buffet are forgettable. Dinner menu doesn't really change much day to day, so if you are doing the two-night package, you can plan on having about the same entrees both nights.

We went to eat dinner here after our Polar Express train ride. Our dinner total was going to be $81.93 for two children and two adults no beverages included. We decided not to eat here and found an awesome place in town...paid less than this for drinks, dinner, and souvenirs for the kids.

Dined here a few times during our Grand Canyon South Rim Visit. The staff very friendly and the band excellent. We did not want to leave after dinner to open our table to other guests as we were so immersed with the live entertainment. Great band and great songs.

Excellent food, served buffet style. A wealth of selections. Great service. Children are welcome and have many choices available. That in itself is a great benefit.
