This is a cozy casual restaurant which does one thing and does it well - serve great tasting seafood. The fare is somewhat simple, but is served quickly, and if you like bay shrimp, this is your place! I had lunch here recently and had a cup of good clam chowder with a green salad, topped with bay shrimp. The... More

When I'm in the mood for fried seafood, this is the place I always go to. Very good seafood platter and always large portions at a fair price.

This small restaurant is only open for lunch or dinner. They specialize in fried fish and side dishes such as shrimp salad, shrimp carrot salad and of course regular dinner salads. Alcohol is available. If you love fish and chips, this is a great place. They have very interesting decorations, including 2 saltwater fish tanks. I woudl eat there again.

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
