Definitely recommended to stop here. We came in on a rainy Sunday after hiking on the trails. The wild boar was excellent.

I was so curious about The Depot because I read reviews that it was an award winner. It lives up to its name! I think I had the best salad of my life! The wilted spinach salad with sauteed mushrooms created such an amazing blend of flavors in my mouth. I fell in love. Their vegetarian option, the portebello on... More

We enjoyed a romantic Valentine's dinner at the Chef's table. Cannot say enough lovely things about our evening. Staff was attentive but not overbearing. The chef was friendly and talkative. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The ambiance was just right for a night celebrating love. They have a nice wine list complete with selections from Oregon and Washington wineries.... More
