This was not our first visit to this restaurant, but by far it is our last. They take advantage of their customers by serving food of less than acceptable quality. I ordered the seafood shrimp and scallop carbonara that was tasteless and of loose consistency. My husband ordered a tomato based seafood soup that tasted like dishwater. Will never go... More

Hearty food and large portions - great for big appetites! As with most "grill" restaurants many of the offerings are fried but all our meals were tasty and filling. Fairly good wine selection as well!

I dined here with my family while vacationing a few weeks ago. I got the rib-eye sandwich which I ate open-faced. The steak was cooked rare as I asked, the portion was just right. The beef stroganoff was a hit, too. Nice beer menu, something for everyone.

I very much enjoy the Depot Grille and have eaten there many times. The chicken tenders are well known locally and are very good: succulent and fresh - the batter occasionally looks a bit dark, but I've never found that it was overcooked. I have taken many friends to the Grille. All have enjoyed the railway atmosphere and all but... More

Greeted promptly when we entered the restaurant. Suggestions were made as to what to order. Ben was our server and he was GREAT! Based on his recommendation, I ordered the Fish and Chips. It was very good..just enough for a lite lunch. We also had the crab dip appetizer which was yummy. The atmosphere is pretty cool. The booths look... More

My late husband and I have traveled to Staunton by train several times, and we always have one meal at The Depot Grill. You can get drinks, sandwiches, salads, or full meals. Great food.

We were traveling and wanted to stop somewhere for lunch but try something local. We had a quick fresh and tasty lunch here. Staff was helpful. I had the grilled chicken salad and my son had the club. Would definitely stop again when in the area.
