This dining experience is an interesting one. Went with another couple for a special occasion. Food was great. The train was scenic. Something to experience just for the shear fun of it. It is pricey, but something to remember.

Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed everything. We also agree rail dining is unique and enchanting. With 5 courses, we try to size the portions so you still have room for dessert. Hope to see you again in the near future.

Talk about dinner with a view! The meal was top notch with orchid garnishes. Delicious. This was a great experience with five star food. Best dining in Lincoln. Probably the only place in town where you can get dressed up.

Yes. For the Spring and Summer Dinner Train the dress code is business casual. Nice jeans are perfect. We only discourage ripped jeans and cut off tanq-tops. Thanks for asking. see you soon
