The place was dank and tables were sticky. The food was over priced and the portions were small. When my food came, it was greasy and barely edible. Usually... More

Had a great Philly Cheese Sandwich, Also ordered Lobster Bisque that was very good. It had lobster in every bite start to finish. Hope it is on the menu next time I return.

I eat here often when I'm working in Town. The food is great, Brian and Ted are very accommodating. Always a friendly hello when we walk in. Breakfast or lunch you can't go wrong, soups are always delicious. Nice size portions and very tasty! I personally love the "Train Wreck" for breakfast...you can't go wrong with the Chz Steak Hoagie... More

The Caboose is a great place for breakfast or lunch. The food is fresh, delicious, a nice variety and priced right. It is located by the train tracks and the atmosphere is fun, especially when the train goes by! Our grandchildren always pick the Caboose for breakfast.

I like supporting local businesses and this restaurant makes it easy because it is so tasty. I like it for breakfast usually but also they make great wraps, burgers and salads for lunch as well as a quick meal for dinner. I have never been disappointed there.
