"Fun Bar with Good Food"

We had a birthday celebration at The Depot in Missoula. We sat in the Deck Deck which is a fun casual place to eat and drink. We started out with the shrimp wontons appetizer which are always good. I had the garlic filet mignon which had a great sauce and was great. It was served with a loaded... read more

Had dinner here with my boyfriend and was thoroughly impressed with the service, quality of food, and dining experience. The higher price you pay for their food grants you great service and a friendly staff.

I ordered the blacken Prime Rib Sandwich and I wish I could order another one now that I am back home. Such a good sandwich with fries and a craft beer which completed a fantastic meal. I suggest you also have the creamy horseradish sauce and I had some of their BBQ sauce and I loved how tender the meat... More

I probably eat here once a month these days, and when someone from out of town asks for a good place to eat this is where I send them. There are several different dining atmospheres in the building, beginning with the Deck, which is very informal including sports on TV, opens earlier than the main restaurant, and has its own...

This is a hot spot for university students who want a good drink with delicious food from a friendly staff. Two sitting areas depending on your mood. One more formal for a nice dinner with a date; or one with tables, couches, and a full bar for a fun night out with your large groups of friends!

The Depot is Fantastic. We had a terrific meal. It started with an awesome fried veggie platter and finished wit this Banana Macadamia Nut Pie. When in Missoula, make sure to stop at the Depot.

The Depot has several areas to chose from to eat in. We have eaten in all and like the room with the big fireplace the best in the colder months. They make a really good huckleberry daiquiri and there are lots of beers on tap to chose from. The menu has lots of selections, from salad to steak and anything... More

All of the beef filet entrees are excellent, as are all of the shrimp/prawn entrees. Decor is rustic/western, with spectacular original, brightly colored paintings of horses and old-west scenes. Can get a little noisy if there are large groups (also true of most other places). This is a fairly upscale but relaxed place; no need to dress up - this... More

We were at the Depot to nights in a row. The first night was just for drinks. We sat at the Bar. The show behind the bar was fun to watch. RJ and his partner were rocking out the bar. It was very lively, I have not seen a bar tender work as quickly and non-stop as I did here.... More
