A nice variety of menu items from burgers (The most frequently served item we saw), wraps, ribs to large dinner salads. We suggest ordering from the chef's menu where we had entrees such as a filet mignon sandwich to a beet/candied walnut/ local blue cheese salad. You must try the house 5 onion soup, it's killer. Everything served piping h-o-t... More

A group of 23 family members had dinner at the Depot. The service was quite good in spite of the large group. There were mixed reviews on the food quality. I ordered the taco salad and it was very good. My husband ordered the ribs which was also very good. We would recommend and return.

Loved the decor of this place. The location in a former train depot is so appropriate. Having free wifi was a nice touch too. Server was friendly. Unfortunately my meal was so salty I couldn't finish it. Ordered tuna cakes that came on a bed of lettuce along with fried onions. Tuna caked were very salty and the accompanying sauce... More

Loved the flatbread pizza! The Depot takes advantage of their great setting in the old train depot. Lots of choice on the menu and great service.

I ordered the beef tenderloin sandwich with mushrooms and onions. The sandwich comes with fries, which I did not want so I asked for a salad instead. I was told there would be an additional $2.59 charge for the salad. It would be nice if you had a choice of a salad or fries like so many other restaurants do.... More

The trains still pass here. you can sit inside or outside. The bar/restaurant has been owned run and sold by the owner several times. I think now he still runs the kitchen. I have been here so many times, and always quite a busy place. It is family friendly and full of noise and sometimes music. The bar is popular... More

The Depot is a Historic gem. A converted train depot with atmosphere to boot. Hometown pride shows in their variety of tap beers from local F-Town brewery as well as Minnesota Crisp. Located next to the river and the tracks, you can sit on the patio while enjoying a burger (with blue cheese made across the river in the caves),... More

This is my absolute favorite dish at the Depot. The poppy seed dressing really makes the dish. My family like the burgers here as well and the sweetie fries (sweet potato fries) are amazing with the seasoned dip they serve with it. Our server last night was awesome (Nicole). Wish the other people were just as friendly. Nice place to... More

We found the Depot recommended by the B&B we were staying at, and were not disappointed! Chef Jeff offers a special menu and we would highly recommend finding something on that instead of the pre-printed menu. After all, the specials are what he wanted to make today, if you think about it, and they were great.

Thank maasjos
