“The bar or the back - The Depot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Sandwiches are fair but not for the price. Crowded / loud / and service is ok when you ask for it.
There is a section with more formal dining and upscale that we will give a shot for the next visit.

“Nice...quite nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The entre offereings were nice. I had the steak Oscar ...not a lot to say about it other than it was nice. The atmosphere was not as nice as the price of the entre would imply....I'm a city girl. It was just nice.

“Terrific prime rib!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I just want to echo what Scott said back in July. I've been wanting to write this but kept getting sidetracked. Phenomenal prime rib, great wine at a reasonable price, attentive service. This meal was one of the highlights of a great trip. I'd definitely recommend it and will eat here again.

“Great location, slow service, limited and expensive food choices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

The depot has a great location, relaxed atmosphere. Menu is biased toward steak (which is good since beef from Montana is excellent) but they should be a bit more creative with their food offerings. Service is a bit slow (and this wAs not even a busy night) and prices are higher than what I'd expect in Montana).

“Can Be Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have eaten steaks at the Depot for many years on our trips to Missoula and it generally excellent with a good salad bar and an outstanding and reasonable wine list. This time we opted to eat in the bar and the results were mixed. The tuna tartar was excellent and the hamburger was one of the worst I have encountered. Ordered medium rare it was extra well done and dry as dirt - not edible.
