This restaurant in a segment of the old train station is charming. Fairly casual, but the food was good. We were there for lunch on a Saturday and enjoyed our meal. Be forewarned: the salads are twice the size most folks can eat. You may want to split one between two people. I hate to see food wasted but plates with so much food that not many can eat the entire thing seem wasteful. Would definitely recommend it though.

The Depot is located in the "wharf" section of Staunton adjacent to the train station. Take a few minutes to walk across the Sears Hill foot bridge that crosses the tracks before you enjoy a good meal at the Depot Grill. The large bar at the Depot Grill is reported to be from an old upstate NY hotel. It's intricately carved with brass and marble components. Even if you dine in the main room it's worth a second just to check out the craftsmanship. The food is good, as well as the service, but one goes to the Depot to enjoy the general atmosphere. The renovated warehouse district around the train station is the real draw. The Depot is a good spot for Rail Fans, history buffs and anyone looking for good food & drinks without breaking the bank.

We visited here this weekend, while passing through Staunton on a Road trip with 4 kids ranging 6 to 16. The menu was very diverse and there was something for everyone. We got the fried mushrooms after reading several reviews on them. The batter was great and they were very crispy, the horseradish sauce it was served with was very good as well. The Gorgonzola Ribeye was very tasty and I could not finish it, the portion was large. One of the best parts of our Experience here was the Service. Everyone we encountered was very polite and accommodating. Our server Allie S was Fantastic. She was very warm, attentive and patient with our children, even with a spilled drink. The kitchen also accommodated them cooking their kids steak the way they liked them. The building was neat and they had a large bar at the front that looked like a good place to sit and grab a drink. Glad we visited and I would recommend it to others.

This was my second visit to the Depot Grill. Love the atmosphere; they've done a nice job converting the old train station while retaining original floors, woodwork, doors, etc. Wait staff was very friendly and courteous. I ordered the same dish I had my first visit: bourbon glazed salmon. Just fabulous! Didn't try any desserts either time because I was just too full at the end of the meal. Side note: free WiFi is available.

A group of 11 from our family reunion went to the Depot Grille (DPO) for a dinner. Everyone was served as expected and was very pleased with the quality of the service and food. We had a wide range of food from the menu, including one children's meal entree. Service was superb and added enough to push the overall rating clearly to a 5. Salads were crisp and tasty, steaks were the temperature ordered, crab legs were a great hit, and the ribs had more meat than was expected. We will go back.
