We travelled to Ellijay to eat at another seafood restaurant but it was closed. We saw the reviews for Cajun Depot on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Really glad we did because it was very good. The fried oysters were out of this world. The catfish filet was not as good but will return for the oysters..

We live here and consider Cajun Depot one of our best if not best places to eat. The owner has always cooked our fish the way we wanted even if it wasn't on the menu! We have tried many of the dishes and they have always been delicious with loads of flavor and the veggies are seasonal and always great.... More

Don't expect good gumbo or good crispy bread, but BarBQue shrimp and blackened shrimp are really tasty. Would recommend for food if you know what to expect.

A wonderful restaurant in Ellijay with authentic Cajun flavored seafood. Staff are friendly and anxious to provide service as good as the food. The gumbo is awesome. The well prepared food included fresh and natural oysters that provided us with an added surprise of a real pearl. You will enjoy dining here.

We stopped in for lunch and we loved this place. You could tell that the locals were in there having their lunch too. I wish we had a place like this near us. The staff was great and the food was wonderful. We will be back the next time we are in Ellijay.

Small place with only 12 tables so you will have to wait. Good salad and rolls. Fried shrimp looked great. Had the crab cakes and they were just okay.. needed more crab and less filling. They do give you plenty of food with salad and two sides with most entrees. Right at the old railroad train depot so the atmosphere... More
