At the far end of town, along the lake, and across from Big Ole - the world's tallest Viking, is the Depot Express. The restaurant has indoor and patio seating. For a unique taste, try the beer cheese soup. Sandwiches are large and filling. Our group enjoyed the reuben, grilled steak & swiss, grilled chicken & avacado, and a couple burgers. They have several beers on tap. Our server couldn't be more gracious. We had a great time.

This is an old railroad depot that has been restored to much of the original and converted to a restaurant. There is outdoor seating which has a lake view ....the lake is a block away. It is located on The Central Lake bike trail.

Depot Express is in the old Alexandria railroad station, very picturesque with a deck overlooking the lake and the bike trail. Very good quality sandwiches, salads, burgers, and soups. Wild rice soup is truly outstanding. We like to bicycle to the Depot for lunch or diner (in the summer, of course).

This is a great restaurant to visit during warm weather. Sit on the patio and you'll enjoy the bikers, skaters, and runners on the Central Lakes Trail. Food is so so. Stick with basic burgers and such and you'll be OK.

Great soups and salad bar at lunch make the Depot a favorite with local residents. The Depot also has a complete and varied menu and makes it some excellent specialty pizzas.
