The building where the restaurant is located is an old train depot right next to the railroad tracks. Three trains went by while we were there and it was interesting to see them. There is a large collection of old train and depot photographs on the walls inside; however, the building smells strongly of sour, wet wood so much that we decided to sit outside on the porch. We should have left when we noticed the nasty smell of the building and not risked trying the food.

I do not advise anyone to eat here.We had lunch here yesterday and were really disappointed with the amount and quality of the food we were served. We ordered a spinach salad and a salmon salad. The salmon stank so terribly (fresh fish does not smell fishy) that I did not dare even take a bite of it and one of the tomatoes on the salad was actually rancid. How does a cook not notice that ? My wife's spinach salad was ok but the ingredients--egg, mushroom, and bacon--were VERY skimpy. The waitress took $6 off our bill for the salmon, but her service was very slow and at the time we were eating (2 pm), there were hardly any customers in the restaurant. We had to wait for our check about 30 minutes. We also had to go somewhere else to eat after wasting an hour at this place.

Got sick - the soup and quiche were too cool, and seemed like they had been left over from lunch-time. I probably had a short bout of salmonella. Not a pleasant thing.

We've always loved Norcross Station; yet, several times back, we were disappointed in the service. However, the last 3-4 times we've visited, we have been greatly impressed. The waiters seem to be more "on their game." The grouper fingers are INCREDIBLE...order them "extra crispy," and you'll love them! Their burgers are good. Their salads are good. The sweet tea is just right, and their fries are great! The atmosphere is still great as always. If you go, be sure to walk around the cute little area, and try out the coffee shop across the street for a great cup of joe and a wonderful dessert!

We were visiting friends and the question was where to go for dinner. We liked the fact that there was a lot of variety. Between the four of us, we had salads, barbecue, meatloaf, and chicken, as well as delicious desserts of fresh berry crumble, carrot cake, and a brownie sundae. We were stuffed at the end of the meal, and still paid just less than $100 for four. The seating outside was really pleasant, right along an unbusy Main Street. Will definitely go back next time we are in town!
