The server was nice enough and the place looks neat, but the food was not great. I ordered the boneless wings and the sauce was watery. The ranch and blue cheese did not have much flavor either. I also had a bowl of chili that was just mediocre. I would go again to try something else but won't hold my... More

The Depot is a fun place on the end of Historic Main Street. They have a very large selection of beers and friendly bar staff. The food is not bad and will fill you up. The service is hit or miss and the wait times have been quite long.

The service here is absolutely terrible. We were greeted with "seat yourself" when we walked in. We took a booth and waited about 10 minutes for someone to bring us water. Then, when the waitress brought the water, she said "I'll be right back". We waited another 15 minutes and no one came, so we just left. Very disappointing. The... More

We were a pretty large group so we didn't sit in the main area of the depot, but it was nice with good heating for a lean-to addition. Nice little fake fireplace that children can't burn themselves on. There is a lot of old train depot memorabilia in the main area with a nice bar and nice brick architecture.

Stopped here for lunch on a trip across the state based upon other reviews we had read. The setting is nice and they had a lot of craft beers on tap which I'm always happy to see. The service was good, but it was 2pm on a Sunday afternoon so it wasn't very busy. The menu offered a variety of... More

If you like trains, as I do, there's usually one close by this place. The wife and I went here several months ago to check it out. Food is very good, service is excellent, but prices aren't cheap. Will I go back? Sometime, yes.

We stopped in for lunch after visiting the Corn Palace. Neat history to the building, you can read about it on the front of the menu. They have a good selection of entrees along with a variety of daily specials. I had the taco salad, it was fresh and a nice change from burgers and fries. We'd stop again and... More

This was our third year pheasant hunting in South Dakota (staying in Mitchell each trip). We have had dinner at The Depot on each trip. The Sirloin Tips, Coulette Steak and Chicken Fried Steak are excellent.
