We didn't have dinner on the train, we just rode in the coach car. It was interesting, especially being able to stand on the back of the last car (which was the coach car). Unfortunately it was dark on the return trip, making it difficult to see some of the points of interest. all in all, not a bad time.

I wanted to surprise my husband for our 25th wedding anniversary and decided to treat him to Cincinnati Dinner Train. What a perfect choice! My husband loves trains and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The meal was excellent. Everyone from reservations to the greeters to the waitstaff made us feel welcomed. Especially enjoyed the commentary from the owner and the songs... More

Two couples took this train ride last Sat night and we couldn't have had a better time. Everything about the experience was OUTSTANDING. Loved the music, just wish there had been more of it. I can't believe this dinner train has been offered for 8 years and we just heard about it. Cincinnati's best kept secret. We drove down from... More

We're always on the lookout for "historic" venues to take my healthy 97 year old father-in-law to, and the Cincinnati Dinner Train filled the bill. The restoration is impeccable, the food was good, and the 40's singers were excellent. The problem is that the entire 3+ hours is a slow ride thru a honeysuckle tunnel. There are a few glimpses...

We went with another couple and had a very enjoyable evening. Everything was well organized; we had no problem finding our car and table. The service was excellent and the food was quite good. The train car was comfortable and nicely appointed. It was a fun trip through Cincinnati. We had a very good time!!

I rode the Cincinnati Dinner Train in celebration of my mother's 60th birthday. The train was nicely restored and service was excellent. The dinner was decent - not remarkable but a good meal. The train ride was nice, especially on the southern part of the route where there was more to see. I've done a number of other tourist trains... More

My hubby and I just returned from a trip to Cincinnati to ride the Cincinnati Dinner Train. I had read about it online but had never actually talked to anyone who had done this activity. We are old train buffs and we were very impressed with the job they did of renovating all of the old dining cars. We rode... More

We enjoyed the ride and the prime rib dinner very much. Dont expect to have a great view though. Pretty much the back side of everything. Have to say even though you realize they have to pay for fuel and wait staff, it feels pretty expensive. And the tip is not included. They e pect that payment on line when... More

Went on the Dinner Train last year for Mothers's Day. Just went again with one other couple. This is a wonderful night out. Dinner was great & the servers were very attentive. Fun to ride on the train & see all the different train cars, or you can just sit & relax at your table. They do have a car... More

This trip was a blast!! The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding! We really enjoyed being part of the murder mystery. We loved how interactive it was and how you could actually be able to be part of the show. The price is high but more than worth it. I recommend this to anyone.
