The Depot, Covington, Ga.

It’s always good to get away and visit a new town. Being a tourist is fun, but when we visit an unfamiliar city we like to see where the locals hang out right? If you are looking for a place to visit while in Covington, Ga., the Depot Sports Bar and Grill is the perfect tourist attraction.

The Depot boasts of a friendly atmosphere with reasonably priced dishes and drinks. It also has an all-you-can-eat buffet. Whether you want to play friendly game of pool with a local or enjoy karaoke with your friends The Depot is the place to be.

Located on Emory Street off of Covington’s Atlanta Pkwy, there’s a full bar and a buffet with lots of vegetable options. The Depot boasts of historical charm, the restaurant used to be a train station and some of the seats are in train cars; a detail I really appreciated.


The staff is very attentive and personal. I felt right at home during my visit. I was told he bar doesn’t get too crowded until about 11:30pm; which is around the time they stop serving food. I was there with friends around 9pm and enjoyed chicken from the all-you-can-eat buffet. I am no pool or card player, but I did enjoy watching locals and my friends sing karaoke, after a few drinks of course. 

When you visit Covington, Georgia. The Depot Sports Bar and Grill with its local/neighborhood vibe and home cooked dishes is one tourist attraction that must be on your list.
