It is so disheartening to go to a restaurant I have patronized for over 30 years, and leaving on a bad note. Had never had the famous wings so I ordered a dozen "boneless wings" with garbage sauce, and a large sausage pizza along with a draft beer. I had planned to be accompanied by others who couldn't go at... More

We had dinner at The Depot for our group of 15 people. The menu was perfect to allow for options for everyone. The food was fresh and very good and prices are reasonable. The service was perhaps the best that I have experienced at a restaurant.

Great place for a family dinner. Not quiet, but great food. Our favorite is the pizza ( old local recipe passed down to the Depot) Don't go nuts if you order it and it looks like no cheese. The cheese is under the sauce (Awesome!). And you must get the Garbage Wings....regular or boneless you will not be disappointed. Literally... More

stopped in on a Friday night for a family dinner / get together . the food - burgers and sandwiches were great - but when you serve coconut shrimp you really should have a dipping sauce that compliments the dish - seafood / horseradish sauce is not a good pairing . the service left much to be desired - 45...

I'm a local that goes here for a tried and true dinner. The garbage wings are one of their signature offerings. The major downer for this restaurant is that, if you don't have a reservation for an evening time, you likely won't get a seat and as a result the service is slow.

While we have a Buffalo Wild Wings in town, the place where most folks go for chicken wings in Oneonta is The Depot. The Depot has been a popular family restaurant in town for decades, and would be a good choice for the many "baseball families" that visit Oneonta in the summer. Wednesday "Wing Night" is very popular with the... More

My wife and I went here for dinner. We had the garbage wings,they were perfect. My wife had a Reuben sandwich which she loved. I had a great steak that was cooked perfectly. We had Tiffany for our waitress, she was amazing . She is very upbeat and made dining here a wonderful experience.

Been eating here since l985 always fine food, service, and beverages. Recently had the eggplant which was right at the top of the charts. Eggplant is notoriously difficult to prepare properly as it takes time and counterspace but the Depot does it right. Pleasant wait staff and upbeat diners. Rear deck (enclosed and heated for winter) is away from the... More

For over 40 years, The Depot has been one of Oneonta's favorite restaurants! We've always been famous for our burgers, pizza, and wings, but now we also offer an elegant dining experience for lunch and dinner. From our award-winning Garbage Wings to a stylish banquet reception for 100, it's the place to be in Oneonta! We offer a stellar menu of Italian and American cuisine, burgers, pizza, pasta, sandwiches, seafood, and much more! A fantastic restaurant for lunch, dinner, coffee, or drinks, The Depot Restaurant & Tavern takes both reservations and walk-ins, and is great for kids and large groups. We also offer a take-out menu, catering, waiter service, and outdoor seating!
