This old house by the railroad has been there for decades. I work a few miles away and had never seen it. My son recommended it as his in- laws had been visiting this old time establishment for years. There is nothing fancy about the decor...still in the 1960's. The small dining area was full as was the bar. Food... More

Depot Café is one of the best restaurants in Painesville, Ohio. The food is always delicious and is given in generous amounts. This restaurant always seems to be crowded and sometimes one must wait for a table but everything is worth the wait. Don't be discouraged with a wait. Things move alone quickly. Very pleasant servers and nice surroundings. Great... More

Food is always good, decor leaves something to be desired but the food makes up for that. Staff is great, only drawback bring cash. Credit cards are not accepted although there is an ATM on site. They do not take reservations so on weekends be prepared to wait.

Located in an old house across the street from the old Painesville RR station, Silvestro's Depot provides an old "speakeasy" atmosphere with a very good, limited menu. Service is usually quite attentive and the prices are quite reasonable. Only caveats are cash or check only and no reservations. The wait on weekends can be lengthy, but the bar is a... More

We have visited Silvestro's Depot located in Painesville 4 times in 4 visits to GOTL. This is a must try. I always have the prime rib. King cut is humongous for less than 30.00. Filet mignon is very tender. Chicken dishes are very good as is the spaghetti and meatballs. You get a salad and side with your meal. The... More

This is THE best for food and drinks and just plain old conversation. Highly, highly recommend it. It's kinda been a "best kept secret" due to it's unique location. But the locals will all tell you it's also a one of a kind find! Absolutely the best prime rib and lobster in OHIO!!!!!!!! My brother recently moved to Florida and... More

This is our "Go-To" Italian Restaurant. Great service and great food, at a reasonable price. Chicken Parm is my favorite. Be sure to sign up for newsletter, you get a coupon each month and on birthday. Big portions and monthly special keep it our favorite place to take visitors.
