We finally made it to this iconic establishment and we were not disappointed. The breakfast was excellent and portions were... large. The home made sausage patty was incredible, and the omlette was gigantic, fluffy, and stuffed with lots of veggies. Thestaff were super friendly and the atmosphere is wonderfully charming. This spot is worth the drive. Read more

On our way home from Nanton my mother and I just decided on a whim to try The Dining Car. We had and EXCEPTIONALLY good time!... The food was Fantastic! Best meal we have had out in years, no joke! Everything was home made and you knew it. So comforting.The atmosphere is light and warm, soft music playing, not nearly as cramped as I thought it might feel. Our waiter(whom I'm sosorry I didn't remember his name) was wonderful. VERY clean and well maintained. You can tell they take pride in everything thedo there. We 100% wl be back more often! If you haven't been here I highly recommend and make sure during peak season andhours(11 to 1pm) to call and make reservations! Unfortunately there is one thing that would make it hard for some, it's notwheel chair accessible. There is stairs leading up to the door and a very narrow hallway and small bathroom at then end.

2 nd time..... Tiffany (wifey) was off today (nurse) and we decided to gallop down #2 to the Candy store in Nanton BUT we... wanted to have breakfast at The Dining Car on our way. We arrived around 11:15am and as we were seated the chef even greeted usand called me the chili man cos the last time we ate there I raved about their chili. I had intentions to buy and take home somechili. So, I ordered to go, 3 bowls of chili and also we ordered their continental breakfast. Every bite was ?exactly? what wehad ordered. Tiffany could not finish her meal and they kindly packed it to go. Also, to point out the service provided wasnothing short of ?exceptional?, The servers name is Page. Tiffany and I have eaten at several eateries since we moved fromVancouver to Calgary and must share with you Page is one the best if not the best server we had the pleasure being servedby. She invented the words ?attentive, personable & customer service "101?, Page, thank you for being an outstandingserver! Will we return, zip-a-dee-doo-dah, I reckon so? First time.... Tiffany and I (fairly new Alberta residents-Calgary)took a leisurely drive down #2 South, popped in to our favorite Candy store in Nanton and bought a few goodies. After leavingNanton, we had not visited High River and thought it could be a good place to try and grab a bite before we head back home. Wehad an appetite for fish and chips and drove around the down town area and spotted this old rail car. We thought it was part ofthe museum next door. We had the time to visit and quickly surmised it was an eatery. The owner greeted us at the door and wepeeked inside it looked like a kool eatery and thought well let?s try it. We had the good fortune while approaching The DiningCar, we chatted outside with two older women that were so sweet and we both enjoyed our brief conversation with them. They latercame in for a bite also. We did not have reservations as we were asked but the owner was gracious to permi Read more

Amazing food and service. The dining car is very clean and very unique. They plant gardens in the back each year for produce for... the restaurant. I had the build your own eggs Benny with Avocado and pulled pork. My hubby had the Pulled pork Hash (which wasinsane!). My daughter had fruit and French toast and said it was her new favourite restaurant. Well worth the drive from thecity. Read more

Went here for the first time in over ten years with my boyfriend. Food was incredible and still had nostalgia from when I went... as a child. Service was wonderful and overall experience was great, I just think the whistle stop is sensational and a must-stopif in the area. Be prepared though, I believe the car has ten tables, so you might be S-O-L if you try to go at a busytime/weekends, would recommend calling/planning ahead. Read more
