Brown paper table covers and good menu items for the kids. very well trainned, polite, efficient and knowledgeable wait staff.

Don't order the local beef--burgers---dry and tastless camouflaged with a sweet sauce!

Just had an awesome (as usual!) meal at one of our very favorite eateries. We have been eating there 4 to 5 times a year-at least- since they opened, and have never been disappointed. Started with a white sangria and a cup of Cream of Crab soup. The soup was so unctious and flavorful that I could have stopped there and smiled for the rest of the evening. Was able to still have one of the earlier specials- a petit filet with three cheese macaroni. I had a pasta bowl filled with perfectly cooked penne smothered in a cheesy sauce (think long strings of melted cheesy gooeyness with every bite), with a perfectly seared piece of beef perched on top. My hubs had his usual ribs, and they were lovely as usual. If you cannot tell, we have nothing bad to say!!

The Depot Grill offers a wide variety of choices attractively served. Our party loved the salads with balsamic dressing as a starter for great meals. The crab cake sandwich was good, and so were the other choices. Our server was simply perfect; attentive and helpful.
Don't forget dessert-- you'll be glad that you saved room. Two of us split the brownies (2) with ice cream, and loved our selection. You definitely want to visit the Depot Grill.

I had lunch here with 4 old friends. It was not our first visit, and will not be our last. The decor and location is great (we're train buffs) and our server could not have done better. He was entertaining, competent and knew the menu well. We each ate a different meal (from bison burger to salads), and all were enjoyed: plates were empty when the table was cleared. Iced tea glasses were kept full, as we talked quite awhile after we finished our meal. Everyone associated with the restaurant made us feel welcome, and encouraged a return visit.

Desserts were very tempting, but we were all full.

Although we didn't visit it, the bar is amazing, looks like it came from the turn of the century.

This restaurant is a keeper.

Hi! I went to The Depot Grille and loved it! The service was great, the waitress very knowledgeable and friendly. When we asked what she recommended, she gave us many great choices. She knew what it was, how it was made and what its like. The food was incredible! Epecially the Steak Sandwich, a house favorite- the Toosday Salad, Shrimp and Crab soup, and the burger- it was big and delicious. The atmosphere was authentic and unique, it being a former train depot. Its also kid friendly compete with crayons to color the "papercloth" and a wall to hang up your drawing. I would definitely go back! Must try it! :)
