This restaurant was a complete surprise! The food and service was excellent. You have to try the crab cakes. It was full of crab meat not breaded stuff. Everyone's selection was excellent. Make sure you arrive in the early evening. The restaurant is very popular.

What a great place, Our server Bamonia was great. They don't take reservations and the place was crowded. But my thinking that when I am from out of town and the place is packed that is a good thing.

The atmosphere is very cool. The portions were huge and the food tasty! Loved the scenery by the river and the train tracks.

I was taken here by a friend after a walk along the water. I had a burger which was like any other however what really stood out to me was the milkshake!!! You have to have one next time you're there! Nicely located too.

This is our go to place for chicken tenders. Huge pieces of chicken breast, great batter coating and really big servings. We either share or take home leftovers every time. Other menu items are good to, and never any complaint. Great fun to draw with crayons on the white paper table cloths. Setting is fun, old train depot with church... More

Depot is a terrific choice for food, atmosphere, alcohol, and a great feel of "old" Lynchburg - restaurant is in the actual Civil War-era train depot. No telling how many soldiers and armaments from both sides came and went through that building. If you ask the locals where to go for a family celebration, this is the most common answer.... More

Weird reception from the ENTIRE restaurant when my friend and I walked in. Everyone turned to look at us. Some smiled. Others simply stared until we seated ourselves at the bar. We had soup and drinks and left fairly quickly. Seems like a nice local hang-out.
