I had heard about, The Depot before. So on our way to Southwest VA, we decided to stop around closing time. The setting inside and outside was outstanding, our dinner was New York Strip Steak, salad and bake potato, and my wife had the special crab legs and sweet potato casserole and green beans. Everything was excellent, our waitress and... More

We were driving back from Myrtle Beach and stopped at this restaurant a little off the beat and path. It was well worth it. They had great food and great service.

My husband and I went on a Friday night and the rib eye was the one of the specials. It was delicious along with a fresh salad. The iced tea was fresh and my husband got a peach cobbler which was also very tasty. The waitress was attentive and kept our tea glasses full but was paying more attention to... More

This is the second time that we have eaten at the depot. You get so much food that was delicious but they also give you a voucher to get ice cream at the store. I highly recommend it.

Really for the price you cannot beat the Depot. It was packed but the wait was short because they had the room and staff to handle it. You get a sense you are in a hunting lodge. I think every room is different so that was the theme in ours. The decorations are outstanding and authentic. Even if the food... More

It had been several years since I had dined here. It was great then, but even BETTER yesterday (June 29, 2016). First of all, the grounds are beautiful and emaculately maintained. I ordered the fried oyster platter. I asked our waitress Tracy if the oysters were fresh and from the east coast or west coast. Anyone who knows oysters knows... More

We dined here recently. The location is wonderful, the restaurant is very nice, the staff also very good and attentive. The food is great, lots of variety for kids and adults. The menu is quite large, but not overwhelming! They offer beer and wine as well as standard drinks. We had steaks, but there are many chicken, seafood, and pork... More

Had been a while since we'd had a nice day for a Harley ride, so off we went with ribs at Depot as the eventual destination, The "baby back" ribs that we used to really enjoy, were basically awful. Cooked to death, falling off the bone chewy and somebody decided to change the sauce to a vinegar base. Should've ask... More
