Because of the nature of what it is we offer Alberta Prairie Railway is not able
to provide alternative menu choices. Over the years what we have found is that
guests find the buffet more than amble with lots of choices. In special
circumstances, and as an alternative to the meat dish offered, guests can
request a high-quality vegetable burger by pre-ordering at time of booking.
