Food was great and decent price. Issue was when they brought out water, they didn't give you ice. Had to ask for ice and finally got it after 30 minutes and had to ask for lemon because the water tasted horrible.

Model trains were entertaining for the grandkids. Food was okay. Some in our group had the country fried steak and liked it. The lemon chicken had a strong lemon taste and was almost burned on the bottom. Service was good.

The salad that I ordered was wilted and lettuce was brown in spots. When I received my meal the green beans that was served with it were so old that I actually wasn't sure if they had been deep fried. The waitress was no help

Freddie, had you spoken up in person regarding your salad, we would've been more than happy to remake or replace it for you. -JC Mickelson's Team

Stopped here on way to Bryce Canyon from Salt Lake City, mainly cause we saw the ads on the highway. It is neat how they have trains running all over the place. Food was filling and cheap.

The menu is mostly "comfort food", well prepared with good portions. The pot roast is one of my favorites. The surprise on my first visit (June, 2016) was the train set that winds its way through the restaurant!! Quite a display.

Stopped in for supper. It was a long ride today. So a home cooked meal filled the void. Pro's: location to hotels, serving staff are awesome. Food is good. The trains will amaze you. It's a must stop to see the trains.
