We decided to treat ourselves to dinner on the rails prior to watching the fireworks in North Conway. Perfect weather; dining car was not full so we had a table to ourselves. Our waitress was terrific, attentive without being pushy, and more than willing to...More

Dine in a 1930's Pullman car on a limited but tasty menu, served by a pleasant and efficient team, although we were pushed for time to finish our meal as we got the down train to Conway

This is about the most mediocre dining experience you can have, and it's not cheap-$67 per person. Everything is just blah. Lobster bisque right out of a can with lobster meat that must have come from their antennae. Having food and drinks sloshing around on...More

After our daughter's recent wedding, we took them and the out of town family for the lunch train on Sunday afternoon. The service and food was good. Not a full menu, but decent choices. The ride was nice. This was the 11 mile trip, so...More

great fun and a welcome change from large meals, but still plentiful. Very clean, great food and great staff. If you're on holiday I would recommend this afer a long day in the countryside. Air conditioned and comfortable.

We're sorry that this reviewer was so disappointed in her dining experience here. The three-course lunch menu includes four entree choices, of which the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad is one, and the $36.50 lunch fare is inclusive of First Class train seating ($21 on this...More

Not much to say except that the train and station was very well kept and very historic.The meal of roast beef wrap was ok but the pasta salad was boring. See my review for the train ride...

The best way to see Bartlett! I felt like I was living back in old times, which was amazing. We sat at a table with another couple and we had a great conversation! Once the train began rolling, our waitress came over and explained our...More

During Autumn & foliage, the Dining Car from North Conway to the base of Mt Washington is a very enjoyable experience. The food's not great but ok. It's certainly not fine dining. Its menu is very limited and an accommodation, but it's fun. If you...More
