“Excellent food and service, a beautiful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We celebrated my husband's birthday with family and friends and thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience! Everyone was pleased with their food, ribs, chicken, steak, ham, salmon, shrimp, and the best flounder ever! We made reservations in advance and was seated just in time. Service was good as it was extremely busy. Beautiful grounds, loved the covered bridge, great place for wedding. Will definitely drive 1.5 hours again, planning to return during the Fall, hoping the leaves will be beautiful.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were taken to this restaurant by friends whom we were visiting in Winston-Salem, NC. It was a 1-hour drive to this restaurant and worth every minute spent on the road. The food was wonderful, and the atmosphere was laid-back resort style with a nice waterfall and wild game hanging on the walls. I would definitely return to this restaurant if I'm in the area again. The value was quite good.

“Beautiful venue so-so food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful facility and nice atmosphere! Food just wasn't up to par. Eggplant Parmesan was really uneatable. Even dessert was mediocre. Service was average. Overall disappointed. Would be a charming place for a wedding though.

“Interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We've been to the Depot several times, and the food is consistently good and moderately priced. As long as Freddie's there, the service is excellent. Watch the wine, though--the one time I ordered a glass, it was stale.

“Great Atmosphere but food needs improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We drove over 90 miles one way to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and had eaten at this restaurant in the past. We both ordered steaks with sides; the sides were average but tasty; the NY strip was ordered to be cooked Medium rare and was Medium Well; the sirloin was ordered Medium and was served Well Done. We were very disappointed in the steaks; we had heard there is a new chef at the restaurant and that the food was not as good as in the past but decided to chance it. My steak was so tough and dry but I managed to eat a portion of it with lots of steak sauce because I didn't want to ruin the evening by complaining. I had a choice of a nearby well known steakhouse or this one and I chose this one--maybe not next time! The salad and baked potato were average/good. Please improve the steaks by taking them off a few minutes earlier!
