How often do you get to eat in an antique railroad car that's been a restaurant since 1927? This definitely is a place the locals visit in downtown Towanda on Historic Route 6. My omelette and biscuit were tasty but the ambience is what makes...More

Food wasn't great. Overpriced for the portions received. Not very big. Could have been better with overall experience.

The red rose diner is under it's third owner ship. It opened in towarda, pa in 2003. It spent its previous life in stroudsburg, pa under the lackawanna trail diner and jerry's. If you search the red rose diner you can find lots of youtubes and articles about the red rose diner and gordon tindall who refurbished this diner. He brought it to lancaster where it was painted in 2000 by joe long. The current owner is retired so he does not count a revenue from this venture. He looks at it like being the keeper of a light house.
