Reliable and good

If you want a taste of delicious food and old time Staunton, come to the Depot. Interesting specials, which often include meat from the famous nearby organic Polyface farms! Vegan and vegetarians can enjoy meals here too. Service is reliable and prices are reasonable. OK for all ages. Good bar... read more

Traveling through Staunton an a nice Sunday and found the Depot and decided to stop in for a visit. Highly disappointed in the visit. For beginners....for a lunch crowd, the choice were weak at best - and the one item that stood out - the Ribeye Steak Sandwich - they were out of Ribeye? That left very little for a... More

Visited on a Saturday evening. We were quickly seated, and the server was both prompt and knowledgeable. Drinks and appetizers arrived quickly. The entrees were very good. Had the pecan - crusted trout, the chicken and waffles, and the Polyface Farm burgers. Would order any of these again, but there were other menu items that we want to try. Good... More

Stopped by for a late lunch. Had a friendly waitress who took good care of us. Ordered a sandwich that was tasty, but large. Couldn't really tell you any negatives about the place. Would stop by again when in town. Wished I'd made room for dessert.

This place has great food and our waitress was so nice. The place is huge and it was packed for lunch. The old wooden church pew seats add to the historic atmosphere, as well as the paintings, prints, decorations that revolve around a train depot. Our lunch was a bit pricey for lunch because we both got desert. The biggest... More

The Depot Grille is a short walk beyond the main area of downtown. There is parking in front should you prefer to drive instead. Our first visit, we ate dinner and sat in a dining area in front of the historic bar. The dinner menu had a good variety... I ordered a seafood sizzler that was about $22. Service was... More

We ate there on Fathers and they were very busy but, even so, they found space for us and the food arrived very promptly. Our waitress was delightful and really contributed to our overall experience. The food was good but not great but it was also good value for money. We would definitely go back.
