The appetizer I had was shrimp fritter, it was disproved as 2 shrimp dipped in fritter batter and cooked. I was unable to find the shrimp unless it was chopped and added to batter. Other than that everything was excellent. I ordered an old fashioned from the bar it was good enough for me to order a second one, service was fast friendly and professional, $85,00 for a meal and 2 hr train ride well worth it. I was celebrating my 30 wedding anniversary with my wife it was a wonderful experience for both of us, Thank you

The train was kept very cold and uncomfortable. I felt the ride could have been slightly shorter and overal would have been more enjoyable. Would also allow meals to be closer together. Unfortunately I left hungry when all was said and done. Some choices for dessert would have been nice as well. Most people in my car didn’t eat there’s.

On 9/4/20 for the 4:15 dinner we arrived famished as we hadn’t eaten since breakfast. The seating was all together & not staggered to accommodate social distancing and when we asked to move a couple of tables over the staff was annoyed by this request. So that was a great way to start the experience. The crab cakes & sorbet were freezer burned with the eggplant rollatini by far being the worst part of the meal. What should have been ricotta had the taste & consistency of dry tofu (how does that even happen?), the slices of steak were barely edible and saved by the gravy it was smothered in. The eclair was old, stale & cold so just a big no. We were really looking forward to this dinner & it was by far the worst meal of our entire trip to Lincoln. I’m truly baffled & feel betrayed by the good reviews I read. It feels like we were at a completely different place.

My husband and I had a lovely evening on Cafe Lafayette. The food and drink were wonderful. The staff were friendly and attentive. We even marveled at the white glove service! If you are in the Woodstock/Lincoln area, this is a must do!

While we have always enjoyed the Lafayette Dinner Train in the past, I was a bit disappointed this time around. We had 2 adults and two children, and our bill was just shy of $500. The kids got chicken fingers, which were dry as a bone and they did not even eat one of them. We were charged for 4 adult meals ($85) which had never happened before. We always used to get a reduced rate on kids ($60). We always order the chicken fingers, because they used to be really good. This time around, they were not good at all. I walked away feeling like we were completely taken advantage of. My mom had two alcoholic drinks, and the rest of us had seltzer water and lemonade. While the main course was delicious ( we chose steak), the portions were small, and I think $500 for 2 adults and 2 children is totally ridiculous. That did include tip, but, way more than I was expecting to pay! Perhaps, it’s just not a good choice when kids are joining! Although, they do love the atmosphere and the train ride!!!

Very good food. Drinks were a little weak, but that was the only negative. Cool Deco decor.
