Went here with my fiancé and two kids. They loved it, I thought the food was decent. The diner is cute but definitely not the cleanest. Would recomend though because they raved about the food.

Have only eaten their one time and the food was very average. The restaurant is in an old train car. The area we were sitting in had poor air conditioning and the car smelled odd.

We finally stopped by after I have read about it on several sites. It was worth the stop. We were not disappointed. The vegetable soup was homemade and the chicken salad was delicious. The fries are fresh cut. The train cars are real and there...More

We plan on dining here on Sun. evening (5 or so) with a party of 10 adults and one child. Do you have room enough for that size party? Will we all be able to sit at one table, or will we be split up? Thank you.
