Another awesome visit

This place has never let us down in over 40 years. Excellent food, quick service, great prices and enough food for two meals each. Nothing more needs said

We have been frequenting this restaurant for many years. It is a local neighborhood spot that you wouldn'y know was there unless told by a local. The inside is just that a neighborhood restaurant,bar. Simple decor but clean and feels homey. There is usually Sinatra or other timeless music playing The food is the main reason for coming.Amazing food, portions... More

We come here every other month. Always ask for Barb and she does a great job! I usually get the broiled pork chops and they are always perfect.

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.

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
