Only had to wait 5 minutes for a table at lunch time. Very friendly staff. I had the best burger ever!! It was the "Depot Burger", and washed it down with a "Holy Mackeral" beer. All three of us enjoyed the food and would definitely go back. This seems to be THE hangout for lunch. Decor: You're close to your neighbors, but comfortable. Wooden tables and chairs, with 'historical/old time feel'. There's also outside seating, but it was unseasonably cold, so we sat inside.

Popped in here after a trip to the beach for lunch. My daughter loved the kids menu, I had the pulled pork sandwich and my wife had the shrimp basket. Both were gorgeous. It's not the cheapest but worth every penny, I would definitely go back to try some of the other dishes

The Loose Caboose is very overrated. I have been there several times, always hoping it will be better, but I'm always let down. Last time our food was served to us cold and the waiter never brought out our entire order; he forgot all of our sides!! To make matters worse, you can see the kitchen when you use their restroom and it is very small and dirty. I visited there most recently with a chef from another local restaurant and he was disgusted. I have given up on The Loose Caboose.
