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.

We went to the Depot for the first time while visiting in Missoula. The special of the day was Chilean Sea Bass. We had it prepare with Soy Glaze and complimented with Snow Peas. You couldn't ask for a better preparation. The Service was excellent, we never had to wait for anything, the staff was not hovering but attentive. This... More

This place is interesting to find, but once you get there the evening is worth it. I started off the evening with a pomeganate mojito and a jamaican tenspeed shot. I love trying new drinks! My husband had his usual white Zin and iced tea. We shared a shrimp cocktail. Always a good choice. I ordered a 1/2 dinner of... More

A very good dinner here on a very crowded Friday evening. Service was very slow as expected but dinner was worth the wait. All guests at our table were not served at the same time despite a long wait. Spoke to the manager ,who was ever present, and he responded with a bit of credit.

Seriously, I have been eating at the Depot since I started visiting Montana almost 40 years ago, and the place has just gotten better and better! I don't know how they do it with all the competition of chain restaurants, but the management and (beautiful!) staff have found the secret - great food, great service, and an upbeat atmosphere that...

I have eaten at this restaurant before and the food is always consistently good. We had a family birthday gathering here and everyone was very satisfied with their meal. The service was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. The prices are quite reasonable especially for the good quality of the food. I will definitely go here again!
