This was so much fun, definitely a different thing to do! Go as a couple or go in a group. The food was pretty good too but the whole evening was fun.

If your from the area I would choose something other than the Old Road Dinner train. You will be disappointed. You will be a lot happier taking your mom to a nice restaurant such as Capital Prime or Mitchell's Fish Market!
