This is a mixed review. We were there last night for dinner. I had ribs and my wife had fish tacos (Mahi Mahi). She said her fish was terrific. My ribs were tasty and had lots of meat on them. A salad came with my ribs. While the meal was very good the presentation left a bit to be desired.... More

Having traveled the planet, and paid outrageous prices for whatever, we came across this place, and keep coming back. I keep ordering the ruben. My wife keeps ordering the soup and salad. She steals my chips. I steal her soup. This is a good place to dine. Quiet, unless there's a train passing through. Good service. A good variety on... More

The service is excellent, but the food is the best reason to come to the Depot. The owner of the restaurant is a chef who doesn't just enjoy cooking, he is very involved in every aspect of the community as well. There are items on the menu you just don't find in an ordinary bar and grill, and that's because... More

A nice variety of menu items from burgers (The most frequently served item we saw), wraps, ribs to large dinner salads. We suggest ordering from the chef's menu where we had entrees such as a filet mignon sandwich to a beet/candied walnut/ local blue cheese salad. You must try the house 5 onion soup, it's killer. Everything served piping h-o-t... More

A group of 23 family members had dinner at the Depot. The service was quite good in spite of the large group. There were mixed reviews on the food quality. I ordered the taco salad and it was very good. My husband ordered the ribs which was also very good. We would recommend and return.

Loved the decor of this place. The location in a former train depot is so appropriate. Having free wifi was a nice touch too. Server was friendly. Unfortunately my meal was so salty I couldn't finish it. Ordered tuna cakes that came on a bed of lettuce along with fried onions. Tuna caked were very salty and the accompanying sauce... More

Loved the flatbread pizza! The Depot takes advantage of their great setting in the old train depot. Lots of choice on the menu and great service.

I ordered the beef tenderloin sandwich with mushrooms and onions. The sandwich comes with fries, which I did not want so I asked for a salad instead. I was told there would be an additional $2.59 charge for the salad. It would be nice if you had a choice of a salad or fries like so many other restaurants do.... More

The trains still pass here. you can sit inside or outside. The bar/restaurant has been owned run and sold by the owner several times. I think now he still runs the kitchen. I have been here so many times, and always quite a busy place. It is family friendly and full of noise and sometimes music. The bar is popular... More
