Great lunch stop. Toosday's chicken salad delightful mix of apple lettuces pecans hunks of feta and tasty grilled chicken. Chicken chili delicious. White and pumpernickel rolls very good kust wish they served them with real butter instead of flavorless whipped spread.

This restaurant has the most beautiful antique bar. Unfortunately, we sat in the only chairs to the far right side. I did not expect that to be the personal belongings storage area and the corner gossip area. We sat and listened to managers & team members complain about the schedule, each other and customers. It definitely over-shadowed the great food... More

We had a good dinner with the family before a show at the Blackfriars theatre. The service was quick and the food was above average.

Great restaurant in a fun historic building. Very good service and the best fries I've ever had. Loved the atmosphere and location, in the old train depot.

Love the Depot and have been a regular customer for years but the last two times I have eaten at this restaurant the food has been salted so much it is not edible. I ordered the seafood sizzler and it was greasy and super salty.Lighten up on the salt and encourage the use of salt shakers on the table. Come... More

Very disappointing. We ordered the fillet mignon with blue cheese crusted and the seafood sizzler. The filet was over cooked and it was sprinkled with blue cheese, not crusted. The sizzler was described as shrimp, scallops and lump crab over new potatoes and sauted onions and mushrooms. It was basically a plate of barely cooked potatoes. There was a sprinkling... More

My last review of the Depot Grille was about a year ago. It was sizzling and negative. I swore I wouldn't return. However, we were going to have supper with another couple before attending a play at the Blackfriars Playhouse, and they wanted to eat at this eatery. In the interest of comity among friends, I didn't object. Luckily, we... More

On a busy Friday evening after a long day of work, my wife and I headed to the DPO grill for dinner. After a short 5-10 minute wait we were seating in a quaint bench/table within the historic railroad building. They feature an excellent choice of craft beers with a range of meat and fish selections. Baby back ribs and... More
