I have eaten here many times and it is undoubtedly the best place to eat in Oconomowoc. Not only is the food excellent (I recommend the pancakes, even at lunch or dinner), but it is fun to watch the trains go by on the tracks...More

The Depot is an enjoyable place to have a meal. The food is good, the bar is fun and 1/2 price appetizers all the time makes it an inexpensive place to meet friends have a drink and relax.

Good food, morning, noon and night. Great Sunday brunch buffet. The best chicken dumpling soup around! Moderate prices. If your kids like trains, call and check the timetable ( I think the have one ) then ask for a window seat!

Seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. Portions were average. Prime rib 18oz was more than I could handle. Desserts are outstanding.

Took a brief stop on a trip into Milwaukee and wanted food at a place that was interesting, unique and not a part of a chain. Maxims at the depot offers both a historic view of the city and a nice variety of food at...More

Food and service was good. Table and floor sticky, and the place could use some freshening. Decor of old train depot is nice, but run down looking.More

Thank you for stopping in and giving us a try! We are working little by little to restore the building as best as we can but can't do too much at once. I hope that doesn't deter you from visiting again and see the updates...More

The train was wonderful and they still have the Brio set down low so kids can play with that while waiting. The service was friendly and fairly quick. We really enjoyed the evening and the setting. Good fish fry and I had coconut shrimp with...More

The Depot is a great place to eat any time of the day. Breakfast is served all day as well. Reasonably priced. Old train station with historical photos. Model train set up in lobby. Sometimes a real train will pass by right outside of your...More

Crowded and rushed but if you want a big heavy breakfast filled with calories this is your place! Lots of families with young children so plan on a loud atmosphere.More

Yes but as is typical at many places there are not a lot of options to choose from. That being said what they do have is very satisfactory. Be sure to let your server know regarding any of your allergies
