Fantastic food in a quaint setting. The old Depot has quite a history in Kerrville. Service and quality of food has always been second to none. Never had a bad experience with the food or service.

Always great food with excellent service. I like this place for lunch or dinner. They constantly serve quality of food. Too bad they're not open Sundays for dinner.
