If I am ever the one deciding where to eat on a night in Faribo, I would pick the Depot. I just love their food. It tastes real & fresh, & like someone took their time with it. There are so many options to choose from, & they have some pretty decent specials. I love the vibe & the decor... More

I really like their food especially the homemade chips. I feel they are overpriced for the area. It is a great place to go with kids if your lucky enough to be there when a train goes rushing past!

We had lunch at the Depot. The food was pretty good and so was the service. The daily special included a couple of elk selections (I had elk stroganoff) and some things I had never seen before. My wife had reuben balls, which are deep fried balls of the usual reuben sandwich makings (corned beef, sauerkraut, and swiss cheese), served... More

The Depot is one of the nicest places in town in its refurbished Rock Island Line old train depot building. The trains don't stop there anymore, but they still run by its patio several times each day. The food is typical sit down American with all the standards. Some chicken, a good steak, great burgers, fried fish, etc... The food... More

Good American food, good service and a nice atmosphere. Nothing too fancy but a very good experience. A little more expensive than some other pubs but it's worth it.

In town for family event and we had a group of about 20 that sat outside around the fire pit table. Nice ambience but a little chilly - but that was our choice. It was late September in Minnesota, after all! Waitress did a good job of handling a large party with people arriving at varying times. I didn't feel... More

The food was amazingly good, but pricey, and with a limited menu. We traveled with a family, and the cheapest item is around $10.00. The decor is old depot style, and the location offers different seating arrangements.

Located right in the heart of the historic city of Faribault. It's gorgeous little restaurant right on the old train tracks and by the straight river. definitely located in one of the best locations in the town. Food is better than average but nothing spectacular. If your looking for that authentic Minnesota Bar and Grill feel this is the Place.

Hostess: warmly greeted us and...all service personnel were genuine, helpful, some seemed new. We waited for an outside table: fantastic area. The service was not fast, but leisurely. We were not rushed, but others might have gotten impatient. The on-tap beer selection is small but high quality choices. Our server wasn't completely sure of the menu offerings ("I think so"......
