The noise level was ridiculous. It was so loud you couldn't hear the person next to you. There were several ridiculously loud parties but management was no where to be seen and didn't seem to care. Food was average. Nothing great. The only reason we went was the beautiful venue. Waitresses weren't interested in anything but taking our order to get us out of there. We had to ask to order an appetizer. The bill was a scratch pad they had taken our order on. It was way more than we expected. When we asked for an ITEMIZED bill they said they couldn't provide one. We found out for a party of 7 people they charged us a huge tip. I know there's not a lot of places to eat in the area but we will find somewhere else next time.

We arrived at 5pm on Sat. Feb. 8, 2014 and told it would be a 40 min. wait. 1 hour and 5 minutes later we were finally seated. We ordered steaks,potatos and tossed salads. While waiting for our appetizer a hostess would walk around the dining area with a very loud walkie talkie radio that blasted out names of customers to be seated that was very disruptive, this went on for the entire time we were there. When our food arrived the steaks were over cooked,tough and chewy and barely able to swallow. They tasted like low quality. The salads and potatoes were fine and the waitress is prompt, nice and helpful but meal was not worth the trip or the wait and price. Bottom line don't waste your time or money on this place its way over rated. We won't ever come back and advise others not to go either.

We have eaten several times at the Depot and the food remains consistently good. Very hearty plates and interesting decor makes this stop worthwhile. My nephew is getting married here in May so why not use this excuse as another reason to go and enjoy and preview a good meal. Service is average so enjoy the food!

My husband and I have been to Cody Creek many times over the years, and have taken several friends and family. The scenery is very welcoming, with the covered bridge you drive over, the quaint wedding chapel, the beautiful restaurant "The Depot", and the cute little General Store where you can purchase some nice gifts, old time candies and hand dipped ice cream! The restaurant is beautiful inside, with an awesome display of wildlife and flowing water as you enter. The food is delicious, very reasonable prices, with choices of seafood, chicken, steak, and the best ribs in town! We have learned to be there before 5 on Fridays and Saturdays since it does get crowded quick, but there are rocking chairs to relax in, and you can walk over to the chapel and gazebo while waiting to be seated. We stayed in one of their rental cabins recently, beautifully decorated with a heart shaped tub, it was so relaxing and cozy. We highly recommend this establishment! T&M Flippin

Went to The Depot for a family members Birthday party. Had to take later reservations. Was far from being ready at our time when we was suppose to be there. Which we made do. When we finally got sat down and our waitress came around to take our drink orders, she didn't ever say how are, introduce herself or nothing. It just seemed like it was killing her to ask what we wanted to drink!!! When you are in a party like that your tip is added in, so when she seen most of us where having water (which made her tip smaller) you could tell that pissed her off! Had another waitress that came and took our food order, she was much more friendlier. It did not take them no time to have our food to us. The food was wonderful. No one in our party made one complaint about the food. They were really in a hurry to get us out. Giving us to go boxes and our checks before we were even half-way done eating. Loved the decor. They really put alot of time and effort into make it look special and beautiful. The food was worth your money, just lacking in service!!!!
