Good food

Good place to get a burger, sandwich or salad. I had a club on wheat and it was good. Beautiful bar in an old depot in Staunton. Would recommend for lunch if you are in the area.

Excellent food & servers! The food is always good and we always see friends here! Parking is the only issue we find - the lots are always full.

Arrived at 8pm. Place was still busy and it took about 15-20 minutes for seating. Ordered a beer from the ornate bar while waiting. The bar is amazing and old. Pews in the front for waiting are cute and old. Seated in the add-on area which is surrounded with clear tarp, unfortunately it allows the smokers outside to have their... More

We were visiting Staunton while vacationing in VA. We had a great server who was attentive and offered suggestions for us as we reviewed the menu options. Our food arrived shortly after ordering and the portions were perfect size. I had the crab cake sandwich....lots of crab and very little bread filler. I would recommend it. My only complaint is...

We are fortunate to live in Staunton and able to enjoy the Depot any time. The bison burgers, fettucini, chicken tenders and French dip are among our favorites .... BUT ... Yesterday we had the bacon, maple and bourbon glazed croissant donut with ice cream. WOW!!! Definitely one of the Top 5 foods I've ever eaten!!

I stopped by for lunch because this place looked too cute to pass up. I was not disappointed as the charm carried inside. The lunch menu had many choices with most options around $10. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious (served timely and hot) and the drinks cold (nice with the high temps and humidity). I am sure... More

We normally love the depot, have always enjoyed their fried oysters and decently priced steaks (my husband always gets the baked potato, which has a nice salty skin, their prime rib is decent, but filet is better) but we had a terrible experience last night- mainly due to our service. We were hurriedly seated at a table by the front... More

This place is great. The food was delicious and the drinks were great. The bar area where I sat has this beautiful, ornate wood back drop that was transported from NY. The food was great. I was in the mood for some pub food and I was not disappointed good portions and good value.
