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

This is a great place if you like local flavor. It's a small place, mostly locals hang out here. Many come just for take-out since seating is minimal. This is a fish joint, the majority of choices are fried, but come with a good portion of salad topped with boiled bay shrimp and a slew of home fries. You can... More

We came as a party of 5 for my birthday.. The service was fast ! Our drinks were filled extremely fast! The food wasn't too great. Nobody finished completely simply bc it wasn't the kind of food you gorge on lol. I got the fish but everyone else got the combo.. The tarter sauce uses sweet pickles and it wasn't... More

Lunch was great! My friend likes the shrimp and carrot salad. I tried it and I liked it too! Then we went next door for coconut cake! Yum! I bought a t-shirt while I was there since DH is an airplane buff. Model airplanes hang from the ceiling and there are model ships and other fun decor here and there.... More

We go here often. A small menu of seafood. If you don't like that it really isn't the place for you. What they have is simpe fare done very well. Everything always seems very fresh and salads are good as well.

The Depot has been around for years and is a local favorite. If you enjoy fish and chips, then this is the restaurant for you! They also offer great salads. The Bonnie Crunch is my favorite. Who knew a carrot salad could be so delicious!

We went to the Depot cafe with a 6 other people - they set us all at one table (plenty of room) the food was very good and they were very accomodating for a group. The waitress's were very pleasant. We would probably go there again if in the area.

Love the quaint atmosphere! Service was excellent! Food barely average. We both had the combination and we both weren't impressed. Best thing on the plate was the fresh cut fries.

It has been 5 or 6 years since we have been to the Depot Cafe in Albany and frankly I don't know why it has taken us so long to go back! Wife and I both ordered the Fish and Chips and it was to say the least the best I have had in years and that includes the speciality... More

Their menu offers a variety of seafood dishes from fish & chips and clam chowder on up to complete meals. The six of us each enjoyed what we ordered. The fish & chips is offered in small, medium, and large servings. Everyone chose "small," which included a salad, and it provided plenty to satisfy one person. Service was excellent. The... More
