The tourist information center is located here along with a quasi-museum of the history of Dalton. The staff are friendly and helpful. You can also relax outside on benches while watching the trains go by on the tracks.

This was a good spot to stop and get out of the heat. The exhibits in the depot were from world war 1 and 2. Most of it about people from the region who served. The building it self is pretty cool and the Sherman necktie exhibit outside was cool.

Service was slow and food was a little high for quantity. Waiter was not very friendly and took some time to even place our drink order. Food itself was good.

Very friendly staff and great air conditioning with a place to rest if you need a break. If you love trains maybe you will like it. If not skip it. You can watch trains go by.

The current exhibit is “Deadly Skies: Georgians and the U.S. Army Air Force in World War II.” The exhibit includes "custom models, commendations, uniforms, personal artifacts, and rare, never before seen wartime photographs" and tells "the story of the bravery, dedication, and sacrifice of the Georgians who contributed to...

The wait staff are pros. I ordered a bison burger. It came hot, and cooked perfectly. The ambiance is casual--trains go by just outside the large windows. Kudos to the architect as there is very little noise from the trains....There is a bar at one end of the building. That is LOUD. If you want to be able to converse,... More

I attended a wedding reception here this month and it was the first time I had been inside since the renovation of this historic building in Dalton. It was fascinating to see the original brick road outside, probably built back in the early 1900's. As to the building itself, it has been beautifully restored. I noticed in one section of... More
