Nice place in an old train station. Good pub food in a college town. Quiet lunch , only a few others at 1pm. Looks like it rocks at night.

Excellent different flavors of wings, although nothing too spicy, all are creamy and fresh. Definitely skip the "Chicago" style pizza. The pasta and clams are good, and the burgers are decent and huge! Fun place where you can see a game or sit in their...More

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!
