Please note: The information below about the "Depot Restaurant Bar"
is obsolete. That restaurant went out of business, but there is now a new
restaurant in its place that still serves inside the old rail cars. I'll
be posting an updated report first chance that I have.
Depot Restaurant Bar
The Depot Restaurant is right at the San Juan Capistrano station
platform. It is so close to the platform that the shortest way to get from
the train to the Amtrak ticket counter is to walk through the restaurant!
Thus, the restaurant is closer to most of the platform than the ticket
counter itself. Refurbished luxury passenger train cars at the station have
been converted into a bar lounge for the Depot Restaurant. I like to arrive
very early for my return train from here so I can relax in this lounge for
a while sipping on a Bloody Mary.
Photos From The Station Platform
All of these photos were taken from the station platform! There is quite a
bit to see in San Juan Capistrano, even without leaving the station platform.
