“Best steak in Corbin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

this place is hands down the best, nicest restaurant in Corbin, but also the priciest. I have never has a bad meal here. My favorite is the filet or the coconut shrimp. The baja chicken soup is also delicious. The cook always gets my steak cooked the way I order it. The service is good, and it is a great place for date night. They do have a kids menu, but there are never any small kids here. That is part of the reason I like it.

“Great food, weird service...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We were traveling through Kentucky and decided to head into downtown Corbin for dinner instead of the places near the highway exit. We settled on the Depot on Main. It was a Friday night, so there was a crowd. The hostess was kind and let us know that the kitchen was on "a hold" to accommodate a large party, so food service would not be super-speedy. That was nice. We ordered drinks and a non-kitchen appetizer of "Rick's Famous Beer Cheese". It was okay, but I wasn't sure if it was cheese to go with beer, or meant to taste of beer. Our food, which came in a normal time frame was great-- a great burger a tender, tasty steak sandwich with huge portions. The only hitch was that our waitress, whose name I didn't catch, but she looked like Laura Flynn Boyle, had some issue with us, the world, who knows. Maybe she didn't feel well. She was not especially polite, but not really rude-- just monosyllabic and with a face that conveyed contempt. It was weird, that's all. I'd go back here for the food however-- a nice change of pace from any chain restaurant in the area.

“Skip it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Sorry, this place is no good. Poor service, lousy food, high prices, unclean, very poor attitude servers. Any other place is better.

“A wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Our stop in Corbin includes dinner with family and we didn't want a chain so we decided on The Depot On Main and what an excellent choice it was. Walking towards the front door we were greeted with the aroma of steaks on the grill and that set the mood. Once inside the menu confirmed what we suspected, steaks, chops and chicken. My 10 oz sirloin was wonderful. The rest of the table included ribeyes, filets and pork chops and not a complaint from anyone. Find the time and stop in for dinner.
