Hamilton restaurant relocating to Fairfield

January 12, 2018 by  

The Lindenwald Station Family Diner, a popular, train-themed Hamilton eatery, is moving to Fairfield, where they will reopen in Riegert Square, near the Village Green. The diner is taking over the space that was occupied by Gene’s Resale Shop, according to an article in the Journal-News.

Fairfield residents Donna and Mike Cooper have run the restaurant for six years, and have won lots of fans in that time. Steve Monnin, a resident of Hamilton, said he was happy the restaurant was simply relocating, and not shutting down permanently. He called the place a “diamond in the rough” that offers both great service and food.

Another Hamilton resident, Steve Colwell, who is the director of Film Hamilton, is a loyal customer. He says that the train-themed dishes served by the restaurant, such as the ‘Dining Car’ dinners and ‘Boxcar Breakfasts’ have made the Lindenwald a favorite of families throughout the area. Like Monnin, Colwell was impressed by both the food and the service provided. However, he also noted that the restaurant’s increasing popularity meant people could not always get in when they wanted to eat there. The new spot will have twice as much space for diners, and a bigger kitchen. The restaurant will retain its popular train motif, including a hand-painted mural of a train.

Established businesses like this might reward loyal customers by distributing promotional products to welcome them to a new location.
