On our way out to the Pumpkin Patch Saturday, we stopped at the Terrebonne Depot for lunch. I remembered that John Anderson had given it a pretty good review in the Bulletin sometime back, and since it’s right on the way to the Pumpkin Patch (and Smith Rock, which will likely be more interesting to people), we decided to stop there and try it out.
The building is a renovated train depot originally built in 1911. Their about page has a detailed history of the building, including a video of moving the entire building on rails (because there was no solid foundation before the renovation).
It’s a nice, open setup, with an expansive open dining area and a central bar with additional seating. And that’s a full bar—beer, wine, liquor. The current beer on tap was Cascade Lakes’ 20" Brown, Silver Moon’s Pilsner, Deschutes’ Mirror Pond (I think), and Paulaner Oktoberfest, which replaced (again, I think) Bend Brewing. So almost all local beers on tap (and a bottled selected, too).
Food was really good, I thought; I went basic with a buffalo burger (bacon cheeseburger, actually), my wife had the Greek pita, and the kids had the chicken tenders and the cheese pizza. My wife substituted fries with the soup of the day, a tasty tomato basil.
Service was also good and timely and we were able to just beat the lunch rush—it filled up after we got there.
All in all, a good place to eat. And I think the only place I’ve eaten in Terrebonne!
