On a business trip to Sioux Falls, we needed gas and food, and on a whim, made a side-trip to the Corn Palace in Mitchell. At the Corn Palace, the nice ladies making up popcorn bags tipped us off to The Depot as a good local spot and right down the street (210 South Main -- (605) 996-9417) And we thoroughly enjoyed it for lunch. Owner John Foster has done a very nice job with the old freight depot that in many towns now just sit abandoned.
They have a wide range of interesting beers on tap, (we abstained but it's good to know for future reference) and a good menu selection. One of our party had a "chicken cordon bleu sandwich with chicken, ham, and cheese which was great. Two of us had a prime rib french dip which was wonderful with really good fries.
It was just after the lunch hour, and the service was attentive and quick. We didn't encounter any of the downsides that some of the other reviewers apparently experienced, and had a very nice lunch. If we're in town at lunch or dinner, we'll definitely try it again.
