Overpriced for the Quality

Limited choices, offer one soup and not much variety on the menu. Hot Turkey Sandwich and Chicken Alfredo were OK. I like traditional salads with Lettuce, I don't care for leaves other greens. Not worth the price. Great train décor.

After waiting for 10 minutes while other tables around us were being served we left. I let the manager(?) know that we were leaving due to lack of any service whatsoever and she merely mumbled "sorry." They didn't seem to at all care that we were leaving. Very disorganized.....

Everyone at our table got something different. I had the broiled whitefish, which was good (after I scraped the skin off the bottom). Another had the liver and onions, which they said was good as well. The chicken parmigiana over noodles was exactly what I had pictured in my mind, noodles with chicken fried steak on top, with canned sauce... More

The waitress took our drink and appetizer order then disappeared after giving us our drinks. We waited over a half hour for the appetizer and the waitress NEVER came back!! She NEVER brought our appetizer or took our order for our meal. We game it over a half an hour then left. Very disappointed.

Our server Matt was friendly and attentive, the pulled pork sandwich was good but the char - grilled shrimp was not charred and barely grilled.

We went as a group of 40. The food was adequate and the service was not up to par. In one instance, after the waitress asked who wanted dessert I said I did, she pulled the plate back and said, "you already had one." I hadn't. And after the first bite, I can assure you I wouldn't have wanted seconds.... More

I'm assuming this is the same "Depot" restaurant we visited that has a miniature train running around overhead. We came here with a tour bus group and the restaurant knew we were coming ahead of time. Our group was split up at different tables and some tables apparently had the good server but our table got one who just could... More
