“Worst Customer Service Experience Ever”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Horrible, horrible experience! We booked a party for 75 people (50th Anniversary party for grandparents) and upon arrival were notified we would be kicked out of the restaurant by 6pm (1.5hrs) as they had another party taking our tables. No way, right? Well, they did indeed kick us out, waitresses telling all that we had 5 minutes left to eat, they did not refill drinks, plates of food were taken away, and of course tip was already included in our bills. Kathy, the lady taking reservation names and apparent co-owner was shockingly rude, stating that we should have known that we only get 1.5 hrs and it's not their job to tell us, and that we should hurry up and get our grandparents over there before we would be kicked out. Note that we called 3 times after our initial reservations to ensure that we were all set, prevent any issues such as this.

So disappointed and still shocked by this complete disregard for basic customer service, zero professionalism, and mismanagement that I nor any of those 75 folks will be returning. Truly so disgusted that we were treated with such disrespect, and more over that this important family celebration was extremely rushed and the tone so soured for everyone. Please sincerely consider going to a another location for your valued life celebrations, 13 bones etc. as I would hate for others to feel this way. Still stunned that we were kicked out of the restaurant for their overbooking!!!

“Did not live up to expectations”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

While the atmosphere of the cabins at Cody Creek was delightful, the restaurant failed to wow. The "filet mignon" my husband ordered wasn't, according to him, a filet mignon and it certainly wasn't cooked medium-rare as requested. He was also very disappointed in the salad for the price. The shrimp dish I ordered was tasty, but the string beans that came with it seemed to come right out of a can and I left them uneaten.
On the other hand, the service and company was good, it was just a shame that the food didn't match.

“Ribs are fall off the bone”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

We went after a car show, and got in right away on a Saturday night around 8. Everyone was nice and friendly. The ribs we're fall off the bone tender and so good. I tried some of my husbands steak it was really good also. The outdoor areas were really nice. The little store seemed over priced. We did go back a second time and took out children they loved the bridges and old country look.

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The Depot Restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. We were not disappointed. It is a beautiful setting, very relaxing and inviting. Our food was served faster than at most nicer restaurants I've ate at before and was delicious. The staff were all very friendly and our waitress was great. The price was about average for a nicer restaurant. It was just an overall great experience.
