Welcome to the Depot Grille in Historic Staunton

A casual, “come-as-you-are” eatery, the Depot Grille opened in 1990 and has since become one of the favorite family restaurants of residents and tourists. Situated in the old freight depot of Staunton Station, our 2 dining areas offer a variety of seating choices. In the main dining room, stroll across original hardwood floors to booths made from oak pews recovered from an old church; mingle with the locals at our 40 foot Victorian bar from a turn-of-the century luxury hotel; or enjoy the view of downtown Staunton from our enclosed deck any season of the year.
