Reservations for the Cincinnati Dinner Train

Reservations are required and tickets must be purchased in advance.   Click here to see monthly ticketing schedule.      HINT: Purchasing "1" ticket is for "1" person ... it is not for 1 table.  If "2" people are coming, then you need to purchase "2" tickets.

It is highly recommended to purchase your tickets online when you see tickets are available.  Waiting or leaving a message for the reservation office to call you back...you may miss out on the tickets.  Reservation Office is only open Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 2:00 pm with a lunch break in between .  Our office is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.  When you make your reservation, you will need your credit card info, your guest names and everyone's entree and dessert selection.  

Keep in mind before purchasing tickets, we are not handicap accessible.  Additional information can be found by clicking here.

Celebrating a special event?  Call HJ Benken Florist at 513-891-1040 (this phone number is to order flowers only...not train tickets) and make arrangements for a centerpiece to be delivered right to your dinner train table prior to departure.  Orders can be taken for delivery until Noon on Fridays for Saturday evening delivery.  Make your evening on board the Cincinnati Dinner Train extra special with flowers!

IMPORTANT:  Dress is business casual for all passengers in the four dining cars. Denim jeans, shorts, and flip-flop or thong sandals are strictly prohibited. If you are booking tickets for friends, insure they are told about the dress code. Don’t be embarrassed by having them denied boarding due to not being told of the dress code.  All guests within your party must check-in with the hostess at the same time.

NOTE:   Ticket prices are $120.00 per person age 12 and above.  (with Ohio sales tax = $129.36)  Children under the age of 12 are not permitted.  Tickets do not include gratuity unless you have chosen to prepay the gratuity.  If you do not choose the pre-tip option, please remember to leave gratuity at the end of your dinner train excursion.  Our staff works very hard to insure you have a wonderful evening.  Suggested 18% gratuity is $21.60 per person, 20% gratuity would be $24.00 per person, or 22% gratuity would be $26.40 per person.  Purchases from the bar would increase these suggested dollar amounts.

Any combined groups of 8 or more people, your ticket price is $155.23 per person and includes the  service charge of 20% gratuity for your waitstaff and Ohio sales tax of 7.8%.   People within a group will be seated at tables adjacent to each other.   Note - If you are purchasing your tickets as part of a group, you will not be seated with your group if you choose not to add gratuity to your ticket purchase and you will forfeit sitting with others in the group.  Please be respectful of our group ticketing policy.
