What a beautiful dinning experience. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary for a special ocasion this is it. Restored 1940 dinner cars. Excellent service. Delicious food. Beautiful views rich with Ky history. It's pricey but fair for a four course meal and 2 hour train ride.

I have tried this several times but never very impressed. Food is terrible. I will not go again if I have to pay for a ticket

I went on the train with a large group that paid for my ticket. I had fun but wouldn't pay over $100 for dinner and the "murder mystery." The food was okay. It wasn't great and wasn't $100 good, certainly. The person dining with me had the weirdest prime rib I've seen. It was a large, inch thick piece of... More

Very organized and boarded quickly. Welcome salad already on table. Quickly ordered drinks train started. Train was full but was easy to have conversations. Main salad was delivered with drinks. Staff are very professional and quick. Ordered Prime Rib and should be served on a bigger plate. Not the best grade of beef but Okay. Desert was served and the... More

Dinner was great, more than enough to eat starting with appetizer, followed by salad, entree, and dessert, includes drink. Train was beautiful, linens and china were a plus. The ride was 2 1/2 hours with scenery being mostly forest. Enjoyed sitting with another couple, which you will do if there are only two of you.

After having reservations for six months they called us two weeks before our trip and canceled very disappointing after waiting six months to enjoy this. How can you cancel on the 4th!

We went on this dinner train ride with another couple and we all thoroughly enjoyed it; It was like reliving the past. The first thing we noticed was the friendliness of the staff. The table setting was beautiful and the appetizers (included with the meal) were on the table for everyone: crackers with cheese, a special pimento spread and green... More

My husband and I chose the dinner Train for our 39th wedding Anniversary. We did the one with the show, "Death at the Alter." The show wasn't much, a little funny, but not worth the extra $25. dollars per. person that it cost. The food was wonderful we both got prime rib and was very pleased with it. If they... More

We decided to explore the good things close to home. We and another couple had reservations for a dinner trip. Although you only had a choice of 2 entrees the food was very good and so was the service. We also enjoyed the beautiful view when we went through the Bernheim Forest area. We plan to bring friends from out... More
