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

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
