If you love filet mignon this is your spot. You might have to save up for a few days to go, the prices are up there but you won't regret it. It's a Missoula institution for their quality of food and their quality of service the depot is always on top of both.

My work brings me to Missoula often. The Depot is the staple of quality in Zootown. Prices may seem a lil on the pricey side for MT until you see the portion size and taste the quality. Being a Montana boy, I usually eat BEEF. My business associate from the east cost and I always gravitate towards a great steak.... More

We live in Lolo and had extended family here for the weekend and chose The Depot as we generally eat there six or seven times annually. Unfortunately, it will be a spell before we return. Our service was subpar and several of our dinners, while still very expensive, were very subpar. The grilled salmon was soggy and small portion, the... More

I took my family here for a special dinner while visiting Montana over Christmas. We made reservations, arrived a bit early and were seated in the bar while awaiting our table. I ordered a glass of Glenlivit scotch and was pleased not only with the generosity of the pour, but the price of $8.95 was reasonable considering the amount of... More

Our waiter was wonderful but the moosedrool stew was not as we have remembered it in the past. Unfortunately it was watery with very few pieces of meat. This has been one of our favorites in the past.

Nice place to have dinner. There was the dining room and the bar to eat in and we chose the bar. They brought us dining room menus which was nice. The specials all looked good. One person ordered a seafood pasta that was enormous but also very good. There is no point in large portions if the food isn't good... More

Our first experience was after the Griz homecoming game. Our waitress was friendly and the food was amazing. Prices were good as well. Very comfortable atmosphere. My daughter loves the wantons. We chose the Depot because of her first visit there this summer.

I ate dinner at the bar and thought it compared very well to the other places in town where I could get a burger and a microbrew. The burger was tasty with quality ingredients, and the bar had a good selection of local beers. The service was great too. They were friendly and quick even during a big dinner rush.
