Peppered NY Strip could have used some A1...and I never use it. Rare not Med rare as ordered. Caesar salad dressing was pretty strong and drenched it.

The Depot staff is top-notch and the food is out of this world. Their menus (dining and bar) have something for everyone. I have never had a bad time or poor service / quality at the Depot. I highly recommend this place.

They have an extensive salad bar. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating of special requests. I had the grilled salmon, and it was excellent. I would certainly go again.

I have been dining at The Depot since 1981 when I moved to Missoula. The first time I went there I met my future wife. The reason for dinner at The Depot last night was to celebrate our 34th Wedding Anniversary. The weather was so nice we decided to eat on the deck. The atmosphere was great and the employees...

Here after the saturday meet. Had the Chilean Sea Bass with ginger wasabi glaze. It was buttery but a little fishy. The Pepper Bridge cab was quite good. The pilaf was ok but they forgot my roasted asparagus. Service was pleasant but their first cab recommendation was off the mark. We were in the wine room downstairs so after a... More

My wife and I joined a party of eleven last Saturday night with an early reservation at 5:00 p.m. I will point out that this was high school prom night plus graduation at the University of Montana, so the restaurant was very busy. Nonetheless, for the price things should have been much better. Bread and butter - free and fantastic.... More

Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant. We found it to be a very busy place but much more of a party, bar type setting that we prefer. The food was good but rather pricey. Our meal was good, the Asparagus cooked with an excellent taste, but the Caesar salad I was not fond of. Having said that I must acknowledge... More

This place is a little spendy but the food is worth it. The steak I had melted in my mouth and the flavor put a smile in my stomach

We were told we should go here, so we did. It took at least 30 minutes to get our food. I had dry chicken, and king crab was underwhelming. Asparagus was not even warm. Husband had steak, ok flavor cold in center, mashed potatoes were not warm either. Bill was almost $60, no sides (salad was extra) and no drinks!... More
