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!

Good service in this missoula staple, but don't expect anything more than Sysco food. Ridiculous cowboy portions at healthy prices in a 1990 format. Not bad, but rather dull.

I heard a lot about The Depot in Missoula. I finally made my visit. The service was outstanding. However, their prime rib was tasty but just okay compared to the prime rib I am used to having in my corner of Big Sky Country. Overall...thumbs up!!

My girlfriend and I went in for dinner. I two option a for my steak, peppered or plain. I wasn't in the mood for peppered. I did figure that they would prep the meat. I was wrong. I had to add a ton on salt for some flavor. It was tender. My girlfriend's scallops were good. However, it was not... More

Fabulous fresh halibut topped with a mound of chopped pistachios. My husband's steak was perfectly prepared. The snap peas and baked potato were perfect and we loved the artichoke appetizer. Mark's friendly but professional service as well as the lovely dining room completed our evening. We wish we were visiting long so we could return.
