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.

We dined at the Depot twice in June. Food was great as was the service. The two year old grand-daughter didn't even phase them. The salad bar is delicious. My favorite is the Sonoma Chicken. Steaks and prime rib are great, too.

We also eat at The Depot every time we are in Missoula, MT. The food is delicious - we had shrimp, salmon and chicken. My shrimp were tender and cooked just right; the salmon was delicious and our other friend said it was the best chutney ever on his chicken. The thing we don't like is there are too many... More

This place has very good food. Great steaks cooked well. The waitress said they usually cook a bit under but my steak was perfect. Prices were a bit high, especially considering the portion size you get (it's a bit small). I would eat here again however.

I ate here the evening of June 18, and sat at the bar. Really good food! Started with an artichoke appetizer, a whole steamed artichoke with melted butter and aioli. Don't think I've ever had an artichoke in a restaurant before! That was followed by a "small" Caesar salad, complete with anchovies, that was large enough to be a meal... More

The Depot has been in Missoula since the early 1970's and has always been one of the premier restaurants in the Northwest. The food is always excellent and the service is exceptional. Set in a historic building next to the railroad depot it is the restaurant not to miss.

Hey . All I asked was to have a chicken terriyaki salad instead of some of the other salads. I did get that --- but that was it. No cheese, no olives, no croutons not one other thing. Just a bed of lettuce with chicken on it. boring. Wouldn't the cook ask or put on other salad ingredients on the... More
