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.

Being some people complained about it being crowded we did make reservation but because they were early for dinner 5:30 PM... More

We had a party of seven for my brothers birthday and were seated in an out of the way back room up a short flight of steps. It was beautiful. Several longer larger tables, wood, not paneling, around the whole room. It was a loading dock area when this was the Oneonta Depot and trains came in. Nice. Food was... More

Dropped in on a Saturday night without reservations. Despite lots of open tables, we were told we were #4 in line and there was a 30 min wait. OK, so be it. 30 minutes became 60 and we almost left. When we were finally seated, I heard that this was the first weekend in a while that they were seating... More

Came with a group of 9 and were quickly accomodated. Service was friendly and accurate. Burger options were all good, really tastefully seasoned meat and a good roll. The sweet potato fries were wonderful. Those drinking beer found a good selection including local brews. A great place for a casual night with friends.

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
