I was in the mood for liver. I don't like it floured. The cook made it without flour. Super food. Really nice staff. Fun atmosphere with the trains!

This restaurant has charming atmosphere, with a network of train tracks hanging from ceiling, made from twigs and logs, and actual little trains running along all evening. It was great and we loved it! And, our waitress Nicole was delightful and gave us excellent service. She explained menu items to us and was very friendly. Hans had fish and chips... More

Great little place! Stopped in from staying at the Super 8 down the road. I Had a really yummy omelet for breakfast. Great service and a good menu. The best is the train that cruises across the ceiling all over the entire restaurant with bridges and all! It's relaxing.... A must see!

Hopefully, the next time you're in Nephi, you'll drop by again soon -- our trains (and the rest of the team) will be waiting for you. Till then, please take care!

Pot roast special was good. Generous amount of meat, skimpy on the potatoes, right amount of stuffing. Garden salad was generous, with dressing on the side

Decided to try a new restaurant and was very surprised at the quality of food and the exceptional service.

Wanted a sit-down meal near our motel. Unexpected fun feature was a large scale model train running on tracks suspended from the ceiling. Place seemed very popular with locals on a stormy Friday night. Food was plentiful but we found it a bit boring, seemed to lack seasoning.

While we're glad you enjoyed our trains, if you'd let us know you felt your food lacked zest in person, we could've livened it up for you. If you're ever staying in Nephi again, we'd love to have you back for another go so we can prove to you just how exciting and tasty our fare can be. Till then!... More

Food was great. They were very accommodating as I had just had throat surgery so needed soft foods etc. plus I have many food intolerances. Went above and beyond. Heather (owner's daughter) was our waiter. She was so friendly and offered lots of information about the unique décor of trains when she saw we were interested. The trains travelling overhead...
