The Cincinnati Dinner Train features dining on three finely restored 1950’s-era dining cars. Also featured, the Queen City Tavern car, which is equipped with a full-service bar with music and two open side doors for viewing as you travel through Cincinnati.
The dinner train operates every Saturday throughout the year, with the exception of January and departs from behind the BBQ Revue located at 4725 Madison Road. The train departs promptly at 6 p.m. and travels to the riverfront. The excursion lasts a total of three hours. Check in begins approximately 45 minutes prior to departure. Please make your reservation at least one to two weeks in advance of desired date as many excursions sell out weeks in advance.
On board, enjoy four courses with choices of Prime Rib, Salmon with a Spicy Hoisin Glaze or Boneless Chicken Breast sautéed in white wine sauce. Your entree is accompanied by appetizer, salad, vegetable, baked potato, choice of dessert, water, iced tea, and coffee. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free options available. Almost all tables seat up to four people, with the exception of four tables that seat two. Every table has its own window in either the 1947 New York Central dining car, the 1946 Milwaukee road table car 201 or the 1952 Silver Sword dining car. Large restrooms are available in the Milwaukee Road car and the Silver Sword. The open air Queen City Tavern car is available before and after dinner, as is the long distance coach car, the Milwaukee Road 3200, for after-dinner drinks.
