The hours for the Crown Center location were listed as closing at 8:00 but we showed up 12 minutes before 7. The manager was nice and let us come in but told us they were shutting down in 12 minutes. The kids were so excited...but the staff was pissed off and rude. It was so sad! We called our order in on the little phone at the booth but forgot to add shakes so we called back and they were so darn rude about it. They told us that was the last thing we could order and hung up. I felt so bad because it could have been such a great experience! We ended up shoveling food in our bellies and leaving in 20 minutes because we needed to get out of there ASAP. I would not recommend this place until it’s under new management or has an overhaul of new staff and training.More

Kids just love the novelty of toy trains delivering food over-head and using old fashion phone to call in order. Food was nothing special, service was fast and friendly. It is in a mall, so watch out for closing time, remember to authenticate parking to...save you the cost of parking. Kids enjoyed itMore

Our son Loves trains he libes it here for the atmosphere. The trains and decor is great. The service that day was well the server did not want to be there.We have been here before its not for the food. Some of it is good...just nothing special. We had the kids meal for our son (hotdog) it was half of a dog cut up on a bun. Around 6 dollars for it. Its a mist try for the experience not the food.More

This location was connected to the hotel where we stayed. I am so glad we stumbled upon it. Such a unique, fun & Covid friendly experience. A model train on the tracks above you brings your food to the table. Friendly staff & we all...actually enjoyed our burgers!More

I did go with a group of friends, but many years ago my parents took me here as a kid. It's a kid's dream come true to have their meals delivered by a train. The memory of the visit stuck with me forever. Wanting to...see it again, my friends and I visited this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. We came right as opened, but as we left it had a long line. The restaurant is inside the mall, so it's a great stop if you needed to take your kids with you while shopping. Their menu consists of mainly burgers, fried foods, and shakes. Perfect menu for a family with kids!More

Look, go for the kids not the food. The trains are cool for them and how the food is delivered to the table by a delivery system on the ceiling. The food wasn’t great by any means but edible. I would go back again though...because my 4 and 6 year old really enjoyed it.More

Really unique and cool place to eat. The food is delivered via a train (seriously) and dropped down to your table. Prices are decent and food is good.

We haven't been here in years and the only thing that has changed is that the service was even better then we remembered. The food was good and the atmosphere is always enjoyable watching the trains deliver the food and reading about the history. Thanks...for a wonderful experience.More

If you have ever eaten at a Steak & Shake, or a Waffle House and wanted a different spin on things then this is the place for you! We spent our morning at the Lego Land Discovery Center and came hungry. Where can you take...the family to place that you order over the phone on the table, and then get to watch as a locomotive delivers your meal from overhead and descends to the table via hydraulics. Our kids had a blast and we were just glad that we didn't have to make the meal. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good time and good eats.More
