I'm a local that goes here for a tried and true dinner. The garbage wings are one of their signature offerings. The major downer for this restaurant is that, if you don't have a reservation for an evening time, you likely won't get a seat and as a result the service is slow.

While we have a Buffalo Wild Wings in town, the place where most folks go for chicken wings in Oneonta is The Depot. The Depot has been a popular family restaurant in town for decades, and would be a good choice for the many "baseball families" that visit Oneonta in the summer. Wednesday "Wing Night" is very popular with the... More

My wife and I went here for dinner. We had the garbage wings,they were perfect. My wife had a Reuben sandwich which she loved. I had a great steak that was cooked perfectly. We had Tiffany for our waitress, she was amazing . She is very upbeat and made dining here a wonderful experience.

Been eating here since l985 always fine food, service, and beverages. Recently had the eggplant which was right at the top of the charts. Eggplant is notoriously difficult to prepare properly as it takes time and counterspace but the Depot does it right. Pleasant wait staff and upbeat diners. Rear deck (enclosed and heated for winter) is away from the... More

Located this one using my TripAdvisor app while travelling. I support the community because I rely upon it when I travel. Which sometime is too often. I ate at the bar this evening because I was dining alone. The barmaid ( I wish I could recall her name ) was outstanding. Working hard and still keeping up with all of... More

Nine people for dinner, quick service, friendly staff, and good food. My family seems to be a regular so the smiles and service for my dad's birthday was pretty awesome

My wife and I heard about this place from a friend. Never tried it before ordered a french dip and it was phenomenal. I highly recommend this place to everybody. As a person who doesnt really like to try places im not familiar with it exceed my expectations.

I love going to the Depot! It always has a cozy and inviting atmosphere, the people that work there as well as the people that dine there are always so friendly. That's why I knew this was the perfect place to throw my grandparents their surprise birthday party! Judy was more than accommodating, we could bring all of our typical... More

We ate lunch after open house on Saturday afternoon, there wasn't a long wait, service was kinda slow, but we weren't in any hurry. The food was good, and the prices were average, if I was to be in the area again, I would eat here again.

For over 40 years, The Depot has been one of Oneonta's favorite restaurants! We've always been famous for our burgers, pizza, and wings, but now we also offer an elegant dining experience for lunch and dinner. From our award-winning Garbage Wings to a stylish banquet reception for 100, it's the place to be in Oneonta! We offer a stellar menu of Italian and American cuisine, burgers, pizza, pasta, sandwiches, seafood, and much more! A fantastic restaurant for lunch, dinner, coffee, or drinks, The Depot Restaurant & Tavern takes both reservations and walk-ins, and is great for kids and large groups. We also offer a take-out menu, catering, waiter service, and outdoor seating!
