I love the old building my first train ride originated in this old building. My grandmother took me on a train trip to Atlanta, many things have changed since then. It's a restaurant now and not bad the fried chicken is good and the corn muffins are the reason I go there, they're really great. I like the broiled fish... More

Down home country buffet in a refurbished train depot. Variety of selections of veggies, meats, salads, breads, desserts and more. If you like southern country food, stop in at The Depot. The atmosphere is friendly and you and your guests can sit, eat and go back as many times as you like.

Nice selection of southern foods. Good and tasty. The atmosphere is rather drab. Really needs updating and its very dark but the price is right and I think a lot of their stuff is homemade. The cheesecake is yummy even tho they said they don't make it. They had fresh fruit which is a big plus!

This could be a great place but by the judgement of the owners hiring practice this place is hanging on only because there is nowhere else to go. Could be a great spot maybe they need to call Bar Rescue.

The food is ok, the fried chicken is really good, I think the veggies are canned, which is ok for some but we have to watch our sodium now and the fried foods too, the atmosphere is a little dark.

I know you're never supposed to eat Meat Loaf unless it's home-cooked, but I tend to make the same mistake again and again. The meat loaf at this Country-Buffet looked good, so I tried it. DELICIOUS. Very much like my Mom used to make - and she made excellent Meat Loaf - moist ground beef (not greasy) with tomato-based sauce... More

Not one of my favorite places.. Prices are very good.... You get what you pay for... I go sometimes on Sundays and it is extremely crowded.. It is in an old Train Station and some of the seats are in train cars....Its fun
