“The train left long ago”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Sorry to have to say, but we found the Depot to be dirty, and quite dusty feeling, it could use a good overall cleaning. We wondered when was the last visit from the health inspector. The food is far from fresh, we suspect a lot of frozen, pre-prepared, and canned products are used. Robert Irvine would have a field day here! The wait staff could use some smiles, but looking around, we felt they may not have a lot to smile about.

“Hungry traveler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The Depot has good food, quantity, and prices. It's locally popular. The building is quite old and we wonder how well kept it is, but have enjoyed eating there several times, including a large family dinner/reunion. A young couple came in and told the waitress they stopped for dinner because they saw it had a microbrewery.

“Simply good food at a reasonable price !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Don't expect a gourmet dining experience here , this place is all about honest good pub food at a friendly price . Beer is from their own micro brewery , only $ 2.50 a glass (16oz) and of great taste !!

“Nice little microbrewery/bar resturaunt”

Microbrew was great! I had the French Dip and was good as well, really can't go wrong :)
Really wasn't anything to dislike.
