Old train depot that was converted to a Resturant. Lots of the old charm still there and lots of history. Jim was great even though the place was very busy. Garbage sauce is a must try-wrap, wings, burger. Can get it on all. Will visit again when in town.

The 'Garbage' wings are excellent. The atmosphere is fun and friendly. It's hidden away, so you have to make your way to find this gem, but it's definitely worthwhile. Excellent friendly staff, too.

the Depot has a great bar and is a good local venue for steaks, burgers and Italian food. "Mama Parrella's Meatballs" are a local favorite. If you want pizza, however, go to a pizzeria. This is a nice family restaurant with a pleasant, mature crowd.

My daughter and her boyfriend are students at Hartwick College in Oneonta and they found this little out of the way place there. So this weekend while we were at the campus we went there. What a treasure. It is really difficult to find, really need a GPS to get there. Not in the greatest part of town but we... More

Went with friends Saturday, 9/28/13. They hard a large party of about 50 people. And they seemed to have a difficult time serving the large party & those who came in unaware of the craziness they were walking into that night. Total disorder at the hostess station. I saw at least 4 tables totally empty with people waiting to be... More

Went recently on a Friday afternoon for my first visit. People down the bar told me, "get the wings, you won't be sorry." They were right! Garbage wings were great, drippy saucy meaty things. A dozen in my order. I thought I'd end up taking some home, but they were too yummy to not complete on the spot. Server at... More

Air conditioning on a hot day in Oneonta! Wonderful wings. Fun bar and setting in a hard to find Depot along the RR tracks. Very hard to find, but keep looking, and do try the garbage ribs!

I go to the Depot on a fairly regular basis and always have a great experience. The staff is super personable and the food has never let me down. I definitely recommend the garbage wings! Just recently we had a large party of 19 people dine and the Depot did not let us down! It was crazy busy there and... More

I have been to the depot a bunch of times and I must say that overall, I am very happy with the job they are doing. Sometimes the wait is a little bit longer than you feel like it should be, but its a restaurant and that just happens. The garbage wings are delicious!, I can't remember the last time... More

Great old train depot, and nice bar, and good food. Their seafood Alaska is delicious. Their Trainwreck Burger is also a favorite. Good daily lunch specials, and nice variety of draft beers make this a "go-to" place when you're in Oneonta.
