Had lunch there today and everything was really tasty. They serve Elk which we didn't have today but I'd love to go back and have some. Quite a variety on their menu so it would fit just about anyone I would think. It looks to be a pretty good sized placed as well. Next time were in town we'll hit... More

We stopped for dinner on a Friday night when passing through Faribault. The place was packed and it even took us awhile to find a parking place. We had to wait for a table, but only about 10 minutes. The restaurant/bar is a renovated train depot and has a nice feel to it. It also appears to be a very... More

In town for business. Stopped in for dinner on Saturday night. What a surprise in s small town. Custom menu changes daily. I had shrimp enchiladas. Very good. Others had Elk steak and grouper. All meals were fantastic. The green bean appetizer was also great. We will stop back next time we are in town.

Large menu. Fish tacos were good. LARGE portions - if you like smaller meals for lunch, find someone in your group to share. If you are sitting by the window when the train comes by it is interesting. I think it would be real disconcerting to be sitting at a table on the patio!

We had some great food at The Depot. I had the blackened cajun burger and it was delicious and cooked perfectly. The sweet potato fries were cooked just right as well. Yum! Thank you.

We always try to experience new places and decided to try this place tonight. We walked in and the place was very clean and they were getting busy, but seated us right away. Our waitress Nicole was very pleasant and came back to our table many times to check on us. We were impressed and will definitely be going back... More

Great food! My waitress was fabulous. She was knowledgeable and able to make recommendations that not only tasted great, but worked with my food allergies. Fun atmosphere.

We ordered the Parmesan waffle fries as an appetizer- these were good, but they only put Parmesan on the top layer, so the bottom fries had no seasoning at all. Then I had wild rice soup instead of regular fries with my burger. The soup was a tad bland- it needs cheese or salt or something. Otherwise it was good... More
