“Unassuming excellence in food and atmosphere at Dalton Depot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

We've eaten here several times, and each time the food has been superb. They have an excellent variety of both vegetarian and meat dishes. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The trains that went by each time during dinner give an added "ambiance" to the dimly lit dining experience. We went to the bar area for some great live music one weekend and were surprised at the quality of entertainment as well. The only downside was the smell of cigarette smoke from the bar as you walk into the greeting area, and if you sit near there. (We sat at the opposite end and had no issues with cigarette smoke smell after our first visit.) Overall an exceptional place for everything from a casual dinner, business meeting, or celebration meal.

“Great Date/Couples Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

My wife and I love to frequent this restaurant on our date nights when we have a baby sitter. The bourbon steak is to die for - mouth watering good and the house flammini dressing is lip smacking good according to my wife.

The only downside is that sometimes the lobby area and front door area fills with tobacco smoke that roams over from the bar area on the other side of the establishment. This is especially bad for those of us who suffer from lung related issues such as asthma. This could be fixed with proper ventilation. That is my only complaint with this place. Everything else is top notch awesome.

“We love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013 via mobile

We've never had a bad meal here. Tonight my husband said his steak was one of the best he's ever had. My grouper was excellent - piping hot with just the right amount of crunch and seasoning. The sides were perfect-as was the service. Well worth the drive from Chattanooga.

“Have yet to have a complaint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We have been here several times with my parents. Let me just say that this restaurant is not by any means convenient for us...it is about 50 miles from home. But my parents like it so we make the voyage from time to time. That said, I have never been disappointed in the food quality. The only down side is that the menu does not change much. So if you find an item you like, chances are you will find it next time around. The atmosphere is pleasant, and there is plenty for young eyes to enjoy.
