2017 Valentine Dinner Trains

Experience elegant dining on the rails as it was during the golden age of rail travel in the United States. This enchanting two hour ride through the beautiful Des Moines River Valley features historic 1950's passenger cars which were used on the Union Pacific Railroad's famous "City of Los Angeles" and "City of San Francisco" streamliners which traveled across Iowa on their journey between Chicago and the west coast.

Begin with a Caesar Salad.  Then, Spinach and Artichoke Dip served with fresh pita chips.  Next, your server will bring you your choice of entree:

Prime RibA generous cut of prime rib, prepared medium-well.  Served with a baked potato and steamed seasonal vegetables.

Iowa ChopA grilled, bone-in, thick cut pork loin topped with a savory brown sauce.  Served with a baked potato and steamed seasonal vegetables.

Chicken Grillers
A grilled, bacon-wrapped, skinless and boneless chicken breast, stuffed with Cheddar cheese.  Served with rice pilaf and steamed seasonal vegetables.

Mediterranean Encrusted SalmonGenerous serving of baked salmon, prepared with a Mediterranean sun-dried tomato and pine nut crust.
Served with rice pilaf and steamed seasonal vegetables.

Homemade Vegetarian LasagnaOur homemade lasagna features lasagna noodles, layered with marinara sauce and a variety of fresh vegetables, all topped with a blend of Mozzarella, Provolone, and Cheddar cheeses.

All meals are served with dinner rolls, a beverage (Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, milk, coffee, or tea), and the Chef's choice of a seasonal dessert.  Menu subject to change.
