This is the perfect place to stop in and enjoy a rustic atmosphere, friendly staff, and delicious steaks and ribs. Freddy always makes our visit personable with his friendly chats and making us feel like part of the Depot family. We can certainly tell that many of the locals have made the Depot Restaurant their weekly place to sit back and enjoy the hospitality of the staff and owners. As we make the annual Hillsville, VA Labor Day weekend event, we always stay close enough by to stop in and enjoy a meal or two. I would like to also express that the beer selection be expanded, along with some additional red and white wines. With such great wineries close by (Shelton, Old North State, and Raffaldini), these would definitely bring smiles to your wine lover guests. Thank you Freddy, for always giving that personable touch and excellent service.

We went as a group to try the ribs we had all heard about and they were everything we hoped for. The meat melted off the bone. The sweet potato fries were very good, although the other sides of slaw and mac & cheese were just average. The full rack ($20) was ample for two people.
We went during the week and so the place was not bustling. Our waitress was very efficient and friendly.
Ribs this good deserve a good wine and here the Depot fails. The wine list has a very poor selection and even though it is in the heart of the Yadkin Valley appellation, the local wines which they offer lack the oomph for such a meal. The beer list is not much better.
With a good wine to match, this place would merit an Excellent.

While visiting the area for a vineyard tour, we had supper at this wonderful restaurant. the setting of the village, including the covered bridge, is awesome. Freddy and his wife treat you like family and made our visit very enjoyable.

If you like a crowded, large, bustling, noisy restauants this is the place for you. Judging by the crowds waiting on the church pews along the wall, this is a very popular place. However, if you prefer your restaurants to be smaller, relaxing and more intimate, this is not the place for you. The food was decent and the service fast and efficient (to aid the high turn over, no doubt). Not my type of place but others obviously love it.

Great atmosphere, excellent food, nostalgic, beautiful setting. Well worth the visit. Would highly recommend to any one. There specialty Bar-b-que ribs, however they have a wide variety on the menu to choose from. Enjoy this privledge every opportunity you have. We visited with 25 other friends and nor one of them had any negative comments.
