Good food, good service and a fun atmosphere. Great for kids and adults. The signs on the walls need to be check out. We stopped in for lunch after some shopping in the area. I had the Blacken Cajun Chicken Breast Sandwich. The spices were an excellent mix with just the right amount of heat. If... read more

We have been there several times, and it has been average but meals tend to be wrong and have to be remade. Today a simple lunch was the last straw- cheese curds were over cooked, Reuben was made so sloppy that all the meat was in one side of the sandwich, steak was served raw and had to be re... More

We went for Sunday lunch. The food was just ok. Nothing special really. But decent and hot. Didn't care for the fried pickles as they used Kosher instead of dill and they were cut too thick crinkle cut. I got a side salad and was pleased that they served real Ranch and not from a bottle. Husband ordered the AYCE... More

My favorite restaurant. Every entree on Chef LeBeau's menu is hand-crafted, tested by his entire staff, and always fresh. The value is top-notch, with mid-level prices on high quantity and quality.

If you're visiting Faribault, visit The Depot. If it's on a Friday night you may have a bit of a wait but it will be worth it. Chef Jeff LeBeau is classically trained and his food is world class. My favorites include the Ravin Craisin Salad. It's huge, I never finish it. Comes with tender grilled chicken and a fresh,... More

Wow. Real fresh food not bar food. Loved the filet burger. And the Elk burger. The Owner and Chef Jeff stopped by our table to ask how was everyone's meal.

The Depot is a reliable place to eat in Faribault. We don't have that many selections and often go out of town to eat out. However, the Depot is always a reliable place if you want to stay in town. Good food, good service, and fun atmosphere. We especially like looking at the specials every day as they are often... More
