“Enjoy the trains While You Wait for Your Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

The Cold Springs Depot has been around for a long time and the The attraction can only be its location in Cold Springs. After walking along the streets during a hot summer day, it's a shaded oasis at the end of town before the train station. Sitting outdoors under the umbrellas is comfortable and the Metro North trains roar by pretty often. The menu is varied but it's basically includes sandwiches and burgers. The beer is cold and the service is friendly. My complaint is the wait for food to be served. Our table of four waited at least 20-25 minutes after ordering and the restaurant was not busy. The kitchen can't seem to get the food orders out faster. Overall, the prices are moderate and I noticed the waiters seem to have to run around a lot. There are a number of nicer places to eat in Cold Springs, but if you want an outdoor spot during a hot day, this is the place to eat.

“Gals get together”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

A half-way point for gal friends to meet for lunch. Food good, great drinks and outside dining. Trains roaring by not as bad as one would think. Get there early as the lunch crowd does gather rather fast.

“Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

We travelled 40 miles from NJ to savor a superb bloody Mary, great fried wings and a huge Reuben sandwich. Well worth the schlep!. Outdoor dining on a Sunday watching the trains roar by. Music from an earlier era a a volume level which permitted conversation. Not cheap, but good food.

“Over priced and truly mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

This is not a place to go for the food. Over priced. 11$ for a bowl of chili and a package of crackers. However, waitstaff was very nice and cold springs is a cute town. Restaurant best to have a drink only and enjoy the view.
