The reviews were good, even the clerk at the hotel next door recommended we try this place. The lamb burger tasted like a 10 year old buck in rut. Both of our orders had to be sent back because they were not what we ordered. Limited menu, a vegetarian's nightmare, pricey. The only positive thing was our server, a young... More

This was our second visit to Oneonta and the Red Caboose. We returned for the butternut squash soup which did not disappoint. However, the rest of the meal did. We ordered the fish and chips. One piece of fish and a plateful of soggy fries. Soft drinks are served in small tumblers loaded with ice. 5 sips and your done.... More

We stopped for lunch while passing through the area. This place was right where we parked , so we tried it. Really cool spot. Hip young staff. Lunch menu had a great variety while not being too large. We had a cured meat and cheese board to start. Yum. Bresaola and Speck were our meat choices. Several meats and cheese... More

Just hanging in the local area and was hungry. The wife and I decided to have some local grub. This place is small and cozy. The menu is short and full of great options. We loved the farmers burger and the ice burg salad was prepared like I've never seen before. All was served with great smiles and understanding. The... More

For a decent burger, this is a good choice - if you've got the time. Things used to run a little faster, here, but maybe it was just a slow day.

We were tired after a day on the road, thought this looked interesting. Waitress was very informative about the community, as well as the menu. Excellent selection of sandwiches and beverages.

Our second visit to SUNY Oneonta and our second visit to The Red Caboose. This place is so good. Small menu but great specials and awesome farm to table cuisine. Excellent service, too. Highly recommend.

We stopped in for a quite bit on a Sunday evening. My significant other tried the hangar steak and it was delicious. You could definitely tell that the greens, the tomatoes and the other vegetables were fresh from the garden. The steak was perfectly cooked and very tasty. We also had a couple of the agave margaritas, which were very... More

We were only going to be in Oneonta one night as we traveled home to Cleveland, OH from Cape Cod MA. We asked the hotel manager for a recommendation from his list of 100 local places to eat. When we said we were locavores and liked innovative chefs, he said You want the Red Caboose. He was oh, so right.... More
