Small-Town Hospitality and Historic Charm

Choo Choo Restaurant and Bar in Loretto, MN

More than 100 years ago in 1915, the building that became today's Choo Choo Restaurant and Bar was constructed along the Canadian trail in Loretto, MN. 

Over time, the building expanded to include a caboose dining room - great for parties and other special events - a spacious bar full of nostalgic railroad memorabilia, and an outdoor patio where you can take in the sights and sounds of trains passing by. 

Choo Choo Restaurant & Bar is a destination for locals and visitors alike. Come and enjoy our free, fresh-popped popcorn, full wine and liquor menu, pull tabs and ATM, happy hour Monday-Friday, outdoor patio seating, and appetizing menu offerings including:

  • Lunch and dinner specials Monday-Friday
  • Breakfasts, in addition to lunch and dinner, Saturdays and Sundays
  • Appetizers and seasonal drink specials
  • Mouthwatering wings, award-winning burgers, and more!

We also offer on- and off-premises catering for weddings, rehearsal dinners, business meetings, private parties, and other special events.
