The Midland Depot located in the Historic Imperial Hotel, brings more than 100 years of history, renovated so everything is brand new in the kitchen - yet the experience in the restaurant brings back memories of days gone by.

Great choice for dunner

Our family recently stayed in Cripple Creek for vacation. Most of the time we were off sightseeing in other little towns but we did eat several times in Cripple Creek. We were undecided on where to eat dinner one night and were unsure of this place based on the mixed reviews. Great choice we made... read more

College students from around the world help at the restaurant. The food is awesome and the wine and beverage selection are outstanding.

Good food at reasonable prices. Caution, the portions are large. The entrees are Italian. We especially liked the vegetarian lasagna.

We enjoyed this Italian themed restaurant and found the food to be excellent. The price was reasonable and the service was very good. We will eat there again when we revisit Cripple Creek!

Generous portions and great Italian food. Try the lasagne - the sausage in it is delightful. The wine list was adequate and they also provided some interesting beer choices. Fairly reasonable in terms of price as well.

This restaurant was recommended to me by the caretakers over at Carr Manor. After reading several good reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to give it a try. I was by myself so I elected to sit in the bar area and Mark was the bartender that night. He made me a Red Rooster, the house special, which I think is... More

  The Midland  Depot at Imperial Hotel was definitely not a place that we will stop and eat again.  I found the restaurant from a google search of restaurants that were kid friendly to that area.  The reason being that there were several restaurants that were located in casinos and children were not allowed in.  I made a reservation through...

We were just here this weekend. Both the Midland Depot and the Red Rooster Bar were both open for lunch and dinner. They have just started their summer season full service, so maybe that is why the previous reviewer may have thought they were closed. During the winter they have limited hours weekends only. Still the same owners, great food... More

The "Imperial Casino" which was bought out for a short time & became "Big Jim's" is closed and only has an "antique shop" on the lower floor. No Casino, No restaurant, No "rooster bar", nothing. All closed. Hopefully will become something again in the near future, but for now nothing there.
