    Went down hill from years ago

    I don't know why people stil go to this place. The food is bad, service is slow and way too expensive for anything. The last time I was there the breakfast sucked for the price it should have been great. Their bakery is really good though that's about all that's good

    Best Decaf Coffee Around

    Very good place for breakfast! Love their decaf coffee, and the attentive wait staff cheerfully give refills. Belgian waffles are the best. Sausage is excellent, as is the bacon. Only complaint: the kitchen doesn't get "eggs over medium". They usually come out too "easy'. Thumbs up!!

    Poor Menu

    The menu at the Dinning Car is very limited. If your looking for a nice veal dish, you can forget it, its not offered. The food overall is just OK. The Dinning Car is one of those places that you either hate it or love it, I don't love it.

    Dining Car Has Good Food

    I like the Dining Car. I live in Prospect Park Delaware County but I do alot of business up in Northeast Philly and I always make sure I stop in when I'm up there.The food is good and you get alot for your money. I even made a special trip up there and took my family one Saturday night and they liked it very much. The only beef I have is that I wish they would start accepting Check & Credit Cards. Sometimes its a pain to make sure that I have enough cash on me,but besides that The Dining Car is excellent and worth the trip.

    Poor Service

    I have been going to the Dining Car for 29 years. For the last few months, their service has been getting worse. The last time I waited over an hour for food that required no preparation. I am never going there again
