We enjoyed discovering the Depot Grill and having dinner at the bar. My grilled ribeye sandwich was delicious; cooked just right with that smoky grill flavor. Baked potato came out cold, but who cares‽ The local Double IPA was hoppy and wonderful, and the Stout was coffee-licious. Glad we discovered the DPO!

We found this place by chance. Saw some old locomotives and a bunch of parked cars. This used to be part of the old train station complex. The bar scene is just incredible. We had a large group that was accommodated easily. The food was excellent, the service was friendly and attentive and the price was just right. Everything we... More

We made our first visit to the Depot Grill, but hopefully not our last. Our group of six feasted on steaks,prime rib, chicken dishes, and salads and the verdict from my culinary experts is that we will be back. The food quality was excellent, the portion size was more than ample, and our waitress (Allie) was top notch. If your... More

The Depot is our go to restaurant for celebrations. Our latest celebratory dinner was two weeks ago, on the Friday night of Valentine's Day weekend. The service was great, the food is always good and very consistent. They've expanded their beer menu to include many local brews. Their wine menu has also some decent selections. It does get crowded during... More

My wife and I go here often because the food and service are always great. We don't have to guess whether or not the experience will be enjoyable. We went there for Valentines Dinner, a few days after Valentines Day. I had Tuna Steak and my wife had their rib eye steak. Both meals were well made and service was... More

Decided to go for lunch to try this new place out. By going for lunch we thought we might avoid the normal large dinner crowds we were told they attract. Had an excellent mushroom/swiss burger while my wife enjoyed the quiche of the day. Both were fixed very well and filled with flavor. Now waiting to try again with other... More

This was my favorite place that I ate at in Staunton! The building is great and the buildings around the restaurant are cute. Our waitress was super nice. We ordered the sashimi tuna for an appetizer. This was so good! The tuna was fresh and encrusted with sesame seeds. Kinda small appetizer, but worth it. We ordered the turkey Reuben... More

Stopped here on our one night stay driving back from Florida. This place is great. Kids loved being able to draw on the butcher paper table cloth. I loved the wide selection of beers on tap (3 IPAS if you're an IPA drinker). Food was delicious offering eclectic vegetarian options and delicious steak. Service was lightning quick and extra friendly.... More
