Looking for a great meal in a historical building but one that still offers a casual dining experience? What do you know, The Depot is YOUR place. Seriously, the food is really great. I recently went with two girlfriends and the food was delicious. The owner's son happened to wait on us and he was a hoot! He did not... More

I had breakfast in this historic building recently. The building was the connection from Chicago to Santa Fe for the railroad, back in the late 1800s. Now on the national register of historic buildings. Good hearty food, but on a weekend morning, be prepared for a wait.

If you want great food in a vintage setting, this is your place! Or as my friend said, "this is the place of foodies!" I would add; How sweet it is! The chef truly is masterful and the service is friendly and prompt with a touch of down south goodness! I can't wait to go back back!

Went for lunch with my wife, two toddlers, an infant and my mother. There was a short wait as it was right after church services on Sunday. But the little wait was worth it. The restaurant being in an old train station means there is a lot of history in the building and everything on the walls were interesting to... More

We have had a hard time finding good places to eat near Fort Leavenworth. This place is consistently good. A casual place for a good breakfast. We are here at least twice a month and bring family when they come to town. An old train station with character.

I took my mother there while we were out shopping on a whim and we were so glad we went. The gourmet sandwiches and sides were amazing and so big we had to take half of our lunch home! Can't wait to go back!

The chicken and waffles here are great! This is one of those dishes that is a must have and I think I could eat it everyday. Gotta stop in and try it, hard to beat. Service is always good,friendly staff and great food. One of my favorite places to eat!

The Depot never disappoints for an awesome breakfast. I had the eggs Benedict and it was phenomenal as was my husbands biscuits and gravy. It's a great local place for a great breakfast for a good price. If you go on Sunday, get there early.

People should form long lines to support a local gem where so much passion goes into the preservation of local history with so much attention to so much detail without turning it into a "don't touch" museum, but have - in our case - the family and their visiting grandparents enjoy a marvelous morning meal and utterly friendly service and...
