Climb aboard the elegant Essex Clipper and enjoy a four-course meal served in the lavishly restored 1920’s Pullman cars.

Relax with the rhythm of the rails, traveling back to a time when trains were king and "dinner in the diner" was a decadent special occasion. Indulge in a delicious four course meal while viewing a breathtaking sightseeing journey through the beautiful Connecticut River Valley. Travel northward from Essex Station through scenic towns, serene forests and picturesque meadows.

On the trek back, you and your guest will pass the tidal wetlands of Pratt Cove and Chester Creek, spotting geese, Blue Herons, and even Bald Eagles! Combining brilliant sights and a relaxing atmosphere, the Essex Clipper has something for everyone.

The Connecticut Dinner Train For Four Xperience Certificate® is for four participants. There may be up to fifty additional participants in the dining car.

Essex Dinner Train Experience 

3 stars

I received this as a gift for two and invited two friends to join us. It was fun, food good (but not great)and the train ride was pleasant. Two complaints - expensive! I don't know as I would spend that kind of money again to go and the service was slow. I know it was a casual dinner but I think it was too drawn out. The others in our party felt the same way. And asked if we would go again, not sure given the price.
