If you are staying near Lansing we recommend: Clara’s Lansing Station
Clara’s is set in the old ”Union Depot” which began passenger service for the Michigan Central and Pere Marquette Railroads in 1902. Fabulous architectural setting, great food (huge menu) and service, and you can choose to eat in a real Pullman dining car, and indeed watch trains glide by you on adjacent track.

Fun Fact: The “REAL” Polar Express. The Pere Marquette 1225′s blueprints were the prototype for the locomotive image, and its sounds were used in the 2004 film The Polar Express. The film was based on the Caldecott Medal winning book of the same name. The children’s book was written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, who grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and as a child attended every home football game at Michigan State, next to which this engine was on static display.
