I made a special trip to Depot Diner for their breakfast. I got there around 7 am and the restaurant was about half full. We were not immediately waited on. The waitress was apologetic when she did arrive about the delay and was very nice. She took our orders and brought hot coffee quickly. Unfortunately the coffee was not very... More

Read reviews and was disappointed to find it was not the same place. No interesting desserts. Two sandwiches - fried bologna and BLT - each came out separately. And eggs and biscuits followed. Gravy was watery. In their favor - service was great and they adjusted bill. Friday at 6:00 pm only 5 diners counting the 3 of us.

I haven't eaten at the Depot Diner, but I called for some information on trying to locate a place in Rising Fawn and the lady took the time to help me find a lead for possible information for what I was looking. So, if the food is good as the people at the Depot Diner are friendly, I would highly... More

Love the owners and visit often simply for their benefit. Food is good, service is great. Very busy on Friday nights for their steak special. Interesting marinade on the steaks. Enjoy it thoroughly.
