We went in without a reservation on a week night. The gracious staff gave us the option of eating in the bar area. We had a very nice table at a widow. We had a good meal. We were not eating a large meal as we had traveled and snacked all day. This is a nice steak house.

The atmosphere is dated (oak, brass, and forest green); the steaks are solid; but the service is subpar. I understand that teenagers and food service are an American right of passage, but I expect a little more when I am paying $30.00 a plate. The cocktail waitress wasn't old enough to vote, let alone legally drink. I ordered a Kettle... More

We were tipped off to the charms of the Depot by the desk clerk at our motel and found it to be just as advertised -- a great place to relax after a full day of interstate travel and enjoy a nice meal. Although it was just minutes from our motel, it helps to have a GPS or good map... More

We have eaten here a few times now and have never had a bad experience. The food is awesome (Depot chicken and blackened Cajun prime rib tonight) By far the best place in Montana that we have dined.

I ant been to the Depot in many years and I used to love their wine list and enjoy the deck. Unfortunately I had a very bad experience recently. Multiple employees were clearing tables by sticking their fingers down the glasses and then bring new glasses back with those same unsanitary fingers. I even witness Ed one young lady scratching...

Was in the area with other family members. Dinner was very nice, affordable, large portions, atmosphere was very comfortable and we were able to share good conversation without competing with loud background music.

Excellent burgers I had the pub burger and my wife had the Hawaiian and they were both good. The Hot Wings are the bomb, perfectly done with an outstanding sauce. Service was spot on.

Tried this place on recommendation from our outfitter during our fishing vacation in Missoula. Very attentive staff and great service! Our filets were prepared to perfection. That crusty, warm bread they serve....oh my! I would definitely recommend and will be returning to enjoy another meal here on our next visit.

We went on a Friday night and sat in the bar. Although you are offered the dining room menu - it just didn't seem fitting to spend $30 on a steak dinner while in a party atmosphere. The bar and deck are loud and fun. Our service was good even though the bar was standing only. Our server kinda took... More
