This is a great stop for those who love fish fry and rail fans. The fish fry was one of the best we have had in Western NewYork! The other couple with us had salmon and veal parm. They were also delighted with their meals. The station itself displays period photos of the steam era. And just before we left... More

We were treated by one of the owners who shared the history of the train depot, then seated at a corner table to enjoy our meal. The food was reasonably priced, portions healthy, and tasted delicious. My husband ate a steak that was cooked perfectly to his liking. I ate the chicken parmesan-did I mention they make the marinara sauce... More

We dine at the Depot several times a year. This wonderful little depot from yesteryear is filled with railroad and baseball memorabilia. It is a history lesson just to see and "read" the walls. Whenever we need a relaxing night out, we head to the Depot. We can always be assured of a warm reception, a nice drink and great... More

For first time diners and new in town. It seems the regulars get more attention than new customers. As a result , the service was very poor compared to regular customers. Owner was very nice and apologetic.Very disappointed and consequently no tip.

The decor & look of the Depot is still charming & hasn't changed at all. The service was very friendly & prompt. But what once was fresh food cooked to order tasted like frozen substitutes to us. The veal parmesan was once my boyfriends favorite dish. It was always very tender. Tonite it was tough chewy & lacking flavor. It... More

Full Disclosure: Any time I can eat in a authentically repurpose train station the review will start with a "3" rating and can only go up. The owners have done a great job of capturing the history of railroading in the area with lost of memorabilia surround the diners. But then the three of use were presented was a compact... More

My dining companion read a review of the Depot 25 Restaurant in the local Democrat & Chronicle newspaper which spoke highly of the establishment so we decided it was worth a try on a recent Saturday night. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is located in a re-purposed turn-of-the-century (or earlier) train depot right next to a working train line.... More

I often go to the Depot on Sunday nights when their special is chicken and biscuits. They are just like my 'grandma' used to make........light biscuits with delicious gravy, chicken and mashed potatoes. Can't beat this on a cold winter's night. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is cozy as you are in an old, original train depot. The... More
