Suggest calling ahead with a large party. They did accommodate us but at first weren't happy about it. Food was good. Enjoyed the time spent there. Kids loved the meals as well.

We had lunch at the Depot- group of five of us had the wimpy burger, wraps and a meatball parm sandwich. The burgers were very tasty and came with some nice beer-battered onion rings and a side salad - you can also get fries or chips instead of the salad. The veggie wrap was good, but the meatball parm sandwich... More

Large group of family and friends got quick, attentive efficient service, enjoying famous "garbage wings" and a variety of well-prepared and -presented appetizers and entrees. Word among locals is this is a gem tucked into an offbeat location. Repeat visits expected.

Were told the wings are the best and they are! They have a good selection of local beers. We also had salads. The Cowboy was excellent! It was like a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich without the bread. We went their after Hartwick's graduation & had 7 in our party. The service wasn't that great but they also had a party of... More

It was not a bad night, meaning they did not have customers out the door. But we waited about 20 minutes to get our order taken....then about 40 minutes for the mediocre food to arrive, then about 35 minutes to get out bill, and after the girl took the bill about 30 minutes for her to bring the card back....

My daughter who is a college student at Oneonta took us there with a bunch of her friends and their parents. We had a great time, but it was more the conversation and company. Waitress was sweet. Food was good, nothing outstanding. They raved about the "Garbage Wings" They were good but not really special.

Four of us met here for a business meeting lunch - it was perfect. Our waitress was attentive enough that we were well-taken care of, while understanding that we didn't want a lot of interruptions. Everyone was pleased with their orders and we didn't feel rushed out of the restaurant though we'd spent a couple hours there.

Our server Kaylea was attentive and had a great attitude. Fun family dinner out for wing night with quick service. We recommend the Garbage wing sauce or the xxx suicide sauce. Good selection of local beers.

Thank Jim D

For over 40 years, The Depot has been one of Oneonta's favorite restaurants! We've always been famous for our burgers, pizza, and wings, but now we also offer an elegant dining experience for lunch and dinner. From our award-winning Garbage Wings to a stylish banquet reception for 100, it's the place to be in Oneonta! We offer a stellar menu of Italian and American cuisine, burgers, pizza, pasta, sandwiches, seafood, and much more! A fantastic restaurant for lunch, dinner, coffee, or drinks, The Depot Restaurant & Tavern takes both reservations and walk-ins, and is great for kids and large groups. We also offer a take-out menu, catering, waiter service, and outdoor seating!
