I ate here on a business lunch in October. I had a cheeseburger that was quite delicious. The atmosphere is what makes this restaurant, however. Definitely worth a visit

Excellent food, authentic and rustic atmosphere, this wonderful restaurant exists in what was once an old rail station. Wait staf were professional and prompt as well as patient as we had my 2 year old niece with us. Entire family enjoyed large portioned entrees. Price was reasonable. All was well but the main selling point is the classic atmosphere and... More

On a cold Saturday night a warm meal was very much appreciated. Tuna sashimi, a steak sandwich and chicken tortilla soup plus a cold porter had the two of us warm and content. Service was excellent as well.

We went to this restaurant late on a Sunday afternoon. It was highly recommended by one of the members of our party. He said it is 'a great steakhouse.' Well, I've eaten at some of the best steak places in America, and the Depot Grille is definitely not--repeat, NOT--one of them. In fact, the typical Outback runs circles around this... More

The food was excellent. I can't even remember what he ate, but he praised it. Others had braised tuna and grilled salmon - and had only good things to say about them. But Tony says the place is consistently good. As a vegetarian, I just ordered the baked potato and vegetables, which are sides, but the food was plentiful and... More
