Restaurant is very dated. It does feel like you are eating in a train car, but a very old one. Tears in the seats and rather uncomfortable. Portions are huge but quality of food is only average. I'll think twice about visiting again.

Found huge crowds on a Saturday for dinner. Food was good but not great. The train car concept was nifty and service was good.
