Been eating here since l985 always fine food, service, and beverages. Recently had the eggplant which was right at the top of the charts. Eggplant is notoriously difficult to prepare properly as it takes time and counterspace but the Depot does it right. Pleasant wait staff and upbeat diners. Rear deck (enclosed and heated for winter) is away from the... More

Located this one using my TripAdvisor app while travelling. I support the community because I rely upon it when I travel. Which sometime is too often. I ate at the bar this evening because I was dining alone. The barmaid ( I wish I could recall her name ) was outstanding. Working hard and still keeping up with all of... More

Nine people for dinner, quick service, friendly staff, and good food. My family seems to be a regular so the smiles and service for my dad's birthday was pretty awesome

My wife and I heard about this place from a friend. Never tried it before ordered a french dip and it was phenomenal. I highly recommend this place to everybody. As a person who doesnt really like to try places im not familiar with it exceed my expectations.

I love going to the Depot! It always has a cozy and inviting atmosphere, the people that work there as well as the people that dine there are always so friendly. That's why I knew this was the perfect place to throw my grandparents their surprise birthday party! Judy was more than accommodating, we could bring all of our typical... More

We ate lunch after open house on Saturday afternoon, there wasn't a long wait, service was kinda slow, but we weren't in any hurry. The food was good, and the prices were average, if I was to be in the area again, I would eat here again.

I had high hopes walking into the place but was disappointed. Extremely slow service - we were there almost 2 hours for some burgers and salads (lunch). Burger way over cooked when has been ordered medium rare it can well done. Everything was very greasy and they need to change the oil. Would not go back.

Well the Depot was a little hard to find for us visitors but we were so happy we persevered as once we got there and saw how crowded the parking lot was we knew we found a hidden jewel. Being some people complained about it being crowded we did make reservation but because they were early for dinner 5:30 PM... More

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.
