I went to the Depot Restaurant tonight for the first time with my sister, brother-in-law and their 2 kids of 1 and 4. Saturday nights they have bingo nights for members of the American Legion because the restaurant is actually run by American Legion Volunteers and they only work for tips. It was very slow while we were there since they stop serving dinner at 6:30 on Bingo Night so i'm not sure if their service would have been as fast on a normal night but it was good tonight. Our waitress was very new and just learning things but she was being trained on the job which was nice because another waitress was helping her while taking the orders to make sure she covered everything. All the orders were correct and all came out within 10-15 minutes. They had a nice assortment of choices from burgers, to mexican, to seafood, to a variety of salads, and a decent amount of reasonably prices appetizers as well. They also had a kids menu which was perfect for the little ones, as well as little wooden tic-tac-toe boards to play and crayons for the kids to color while waiting for the food. I got the chili burger which was amazing with fresh cut beer battered fries, and homemade coleslaw which was also good. (I usually don't eat the coleslaw at restaurants but ate the whole cup. Everybody left satisfied and during the Christmas season one of the local Veterans and his son set up a room below the restaurant with a variety of different train sets, one designed like the town of Palmer Lake and one designed like the movie The Polar Express. There's also a train track going around the entire ceiling of the restaurant itself. You don't have to pay to look at the trains downstairs but they take donations for Wounded Warriors foundation and if you donate anything at all your kids get a bell like from the Polar Express movie/book and a ticket good for a free cup of hot chocolate at the restaurant. Good place to eat with the family, or if you're into trains, or good food.
