After living in Kentucky for 16 years we finally took a ride on the dinner train to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It totally exceeded my expectations. Loved the scenic ride through bourbon country. My husband and I both had the Kentucky Hot Brown, which was very good. We went on the lunch train and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Went on the train ride for my birthday with my husband. Had a wonderful time. Had a nice view from the train and a wonderful lunch. Would ride the rails again. Maybe do dinner next time.

The Dinner Train was such a memorable experience to share with my husband and parents. The food and service were exceptional, and the excursion was smooth, informative and beautiful at this time of the year. We will definitely be back!

The dinner train was absolutely Beautiful. It was set up with fancy table settings, matched with the decor of a 1940s train. The staff was friendly and service was quick. The train most goes through smaller towns, but the scenery is beautiful, especially in the fall when the leaves have started turning. You also get a decent view of some... More

The experience was a lot of fun, dinner was very good and service was superb. Marisa was our server and she was the best on the train. If you like dinner trains this one is a must, very organized and the actors were also very good

We have been on this dinner train once before and enjoyed it so much that we came back to go again. The scenery isn't terrific, but the food and service is excellent. We enjoy meeting new friends while on the train also. Would recommend if you enjoy trains and a good meal..

We took the lunch train because we really hoped to see some Fall Foliage. It was too early for the foliage, but we still enjoyed the beautiful scenery outside of our window. The food was amazing (we got the pot roast) and the decor of the train was really beautiful. The service was great and we were fortunate to have... More

Upon arrival we found ample parking in the lot right beside the train and station. We arrived at 5:30pm for the 6pm dinner train. Upon a quick check in at the station we then waited only a few minutes before boarding. The cars look great and are from the 1940's. All refinished with some modern appointments, but still look classic.... More

We drove from Louisiana to ride the dinner train. We opted for the lunch ride. The food was fantastic and filling. Three of us had the Kentucky Brown, a layer of bread, sliced turkey, gravy, cheese and a tomato all baked in a casserole dish. We all thought it was very tasty and satisfying. My husband had the roast beef... More
