I like going to a favorite restaurant and knowing that it will always be good. The Depot is like that. They have fried shrimp dinners, in different sizes, that come with salad (with bay shrimp on top) and fries. Lots of fries. The wine list is small, but well-rounded, and there are beers and lemonade. It's a comfortable, friendly place... More

I took my nephew for lunch and we had a great meal. The fish was fresh and the salad was awesome. I had scallops and he had a fish platter and the food was delicious!

This is an interesting/historic little restaurant. The service was very good, and the food was delicious. I had halibut fish and chips. It was great. We will return.

We visit albany a lot, and finally made it to the Depot. It is a great place for a simple meal of fish and chips and a cold brew. The meals come with home made fries and a nice shrimp salad. Service is prompt and friendly, and the fish portions are plentiful and of high quality for the price. Definitely... More

It was the only other option we had after riding the train for 4 hours and was within walking distance of the train depot. We walked out of Sidekicks, not enough menu selection there. This place is very old-time, lots to look at while you wait, service was QUICK and friendly. I ordered fish and chips and when one piece... More

The Depot has been in business in Albany for many years and that's because it has really good food! It has a limited menu and all of it is excellent. The platters include salad and fries from fresh potatoes, not frozen. We have always had a good meal at this restaurant. We do not live in Albany but when we... More

Nothing fancy, but loaded with atmosphere and old signs, remote control airplanes hanging from the ceiling, and a fish tank near the front entry. We had a quick lunch that was served promptly, was fresh and well prepared. I like my fries undercooked and they were good. Friendly help, prompt service. Clam chowder was decent, mostly fish and salad entrées.... More

New to the area so there are so many new places to try. Friends were coming to visit so they suggested the Depot (I go past it everyday and told myself I need to try it). From the outside it looks kinda like a Bait shop and on the inside it has an eclectic collection of memorabilia displayed. It was... More
