Located in the 125 year old historic Boulder Train Depot, Roadhouse Boulder Depot brings an urban flare to a historic setting and serves as a gathering place for the entire Boulder community. Operating as a restaurant in the Roadhouse Hospitality Group, Roadhouse Boulder Depot offers a quality “roadhouse” style menu with an emphasis on customer service and community. As University of Colorado Boulder alumni, the Shipp brothers, Terry, Dan, Mike and John, took their knowledge of restaurants and coupled it with their understanding and appreciation for the Boulder community. Tying together history, art, and great food, guests can expect a one of a kind dining experience in a true Boulder institution. Roadhouse Boulder Depot is more than a trend, it’s a tradition.

Food was amazing! The brussel sprouts appetizer is a must! The building is cool and the vibe is energetic. A great kids menu that was prepared with actual taste. We loved it!

They are one of the few restaurants in Boulder on Open Table; easy to get reservation, good menu selection, good beer and wine selection, great service, have to pay for parking ($1.25-did not break the bank)

We were back in Boulder for a celebration of life, and stumbled upon Roadhouse Boulder Depot, a few blocks from our hotel. A beautiful building, inside and out. Fabulous service from Ellie. Great drinks and appetizers - the Brussel sprouts were delicious. A superb filet mignon and short ribs. If we're back in Boulder, we will be there again!!

Horrible food, had to wait 40 minutes for a bad breakfast and when I spoke to the manager, he said the line cooks were in training, but he was in the office. Skip it!

Service and food were amazing! My fiancé and I were in town looking for places to have our after wedding dinner in October and we think Roadhouse would be a perfect spot!

Horrible customer service. We had a reservation and were led to an outside table, directly in the sun on a 95 degree day, without any shade or umbrella. Every other outside table had some sort of shade. We asked if it was possible to sit at one of the many unoccupied tables and the manager told us that those tables were being held for reservations (which we had, btw) and that the table he showed us was our only option, “take it or leave it.” No offer to wait for another table, which we would have gladly done. So we left, and we will not return. This was one of our favorite restaurants in Boulder…but with customer service like that, they will be out of business in a few months anyway.

Very hot in the restaurant, and just okay table service, even though they were not too busy. Not really bad, just not really good either.

Sat outside with a group of 7 and they take reservations - which is awesome. Food was good, drinks were good and service was good. Not down on pearl street so parking and easy in and out. Highly recommend.

Usually everything is great at The Roadhouse. We’ve had many great meals and times there. But this time the service was slow and disjointed, the portions small, and the food not even average (we had the steak).

Have been going to the Roadhouse Depot for years. Love the booths in the winter, and with COVID LOVE the spacious outdoor dining areas. Great food choices and the staff have been warm, welcoming, attentive, and courteous.

The Depot is one of our top 3 favorite Boulder restaurants! It is a sure thing; we have never had a bad experience there. The pretzel bites with queso and the Brussels sprouts are our go-to apps. Last night we went light and tried the Roadhouse salads. All excellent. It was the perfect summer evening dinner. Our server, Jonathan, was professional, efficient, and responded immediately to a minor concern we had.

We sat at the bar area. The food was delicious. I had prime rib Benedict ( wish there was a little more prime rib)
My husband has the Turkey Avocado sandwich which he loved. The service was top notch along with the quick food delivery

The food at the Depot is really good! Make that excellent - for what it is. Three visits in two weeks. Burgers consistently excellent. Cauliflower appetizer highly recommended as are lettuce wraps - both Korean spiced. We rediscovered after going offline on this place for a couple years. Will go back for sure.

My husband and I had our wedding reception in this building before it was moved, so we like to return to it now that it’s a restaurant. The food was delicious. We had Thai cauliflower for an appetizer and then had the lemon chicken and the mushroom burger. The touch of jalapeño with the chicken was divine. I like that there is a choice of size for wine, and the chocolate torte was a perfect finish with the rest of my wine. We will definitely be back!

We had a very pleasant experience. The food and service were great. My fiance' ordered sweet potato fries instead of chips, but his plate arrived with chips. We informed our server, who brought the fries to us in a to-go box. No harm done.

We look forward to outdoor dining at Roadhouse Depot when the temperature gets warmer.
