We came back for the Peach Cobbler because two nights prior, we were too stuffed to order dessert. Sadly, Jon informed us that we came too late and that it was sold out. :-(
We got the carrot cake and the mint cheesecake. Both were great so I could just imagine how good the peach cobbler would have been. We wish we could come back but that was our last night in CO and does not look like we will be back any time soon. Please deliver!
Jon is a great server and everyone else was very helpful too. If we find ourselves back in Boulder, we will be back for the peach cobbler.

Ruined a 65th anniversary dinner! I informed the Depot of my parents 65th wedding anniversary when making the reservation. Earlier that day I dropped off my mothers favorite cake with the hostess. She noted the reservation/name/occasion. After we finished dinner we were asked if we wanted to order dessert. I had to inform them that I had brought in the cake earlier ruining that surprise. Then, in front of my parents, they told me there was a $15 cake cutting fee. The hostess never informed me of that earlier. It was embarrassing to have to tell the server about the cake and then to be told of a cutting fee. Really RUINED this celebration. :-(((

Great Food, Great Service. I could not decide what I wanted so I got both the Roadhouse burger and the Short Rib Enchiladas. Both were fantastic. My wife got the build your own burger with chicken and she also thought it was great. Our server Jon was very friendly and helpful. Wish we had room for dessert

The Depot is one of our go-to restaurants. My husband is Gluten Free and Dairy Free - their menu offers many, delicious choices that he can eat. I can eat anything! I am never disappointed in the food. They are doing a good job with taking necessary precautions to keep us safe - if only all of their patrons would do the same. The other night, the manager noticed us getting uncomfortable because we were being crowded by a group who were not wearing masks at the bar. He came over and offered to move us. At that same moment, the crowd moved outside. I really appreciated his attention to our comfort. I highly recommend this restaurant

Made a reservation for 930pm. When we arrived, we were told the kitchen and bar were closed. Hostess told us that we could drink water on the patio if we liked. I felt like we were in an episode of Seinfeld. "You know how to take the reservation, you just don't know how to HOLD the reservation.... And that's really the most important part."

Fantastic!! Hidden gem!

Been to Boulder several times and just found this place. The food was great, service perfect, view from the patio outstanding!!! Will be traveling back to Boulder in a few months and will definitely visit again!

I think our waitress was Taylor?? Wish I could remember for sure to give her a proper shout out. She was attentive and had such a great personality.

I had a Business Lunch at Boulder Depot and it was perfect especially in COVID times. The staff were so polite & friendly, the food was fresh ~ I got the Thai Salad with Seared Ahi Tuna and an Aperol Spritz ~ both were great. Great atmosphere, lively but calm enough to have an engaging conversation! Definitely will be heading back soon.

We enjoyed a post-lockdown dinner out on the patio. Good place for a socially-distanced meal outdoors.

We've been to the Depot many times. Food is always good (great burgers) and portions are generous. Service is hit-or-miss.

On this occasion, it seemed like they were operating with a barebones staff, so service was really slow.

But overall, we enjoy this place and recommend it.

Potato chip nachos are a delightful treat. Most of the food I have had here is quite good, historically the happy hour has also been quite impressive. Good beer and drink selection, excellent ambiance and decor, and a lovely patio.

Service was very poor, 15 minutes before anyone came to the table, 45 minutes before drinks were served and they were simple drinks beer, wine and one old fashion. We had an 8 person table, one end was asked about appetizers and the rest were not. Apps came out before food, poor time management, when asked the waitress laughed off the delay. The excuse was the bartender was training,. On Saturday night packed house. So I watched him keep teaching instead of putting him to work. Again Poor time management. The laughing about the situation was not good.

Had dinner at Roadhouse Depot on Saturday night. Booked thru OpenTable but they were at least 30 minutes behind so we sat at bar. The restaurant was slammed and everybody was deep in the weeds, i.e. late and hurried. My wife had their Jam Burger it was excellent, good sized and great fries. I had the Tuna Poke salad, it was good but had asked someone next to me and they said not much Poke, so I ordered mine with an extra Poke side, that was perfect, but you would think they would have some real wasabi and ginger.... not the case. It was a night of hurry up and wait. Bartender apologized more times than I can remember, but service never improved. Check your check. Got my check and it was off on 4 of the 6 line items, different menu and register prices, that is weird and unacceptable. Would definitely go back and maybe service at a table is better than at the bar, but they left us no choice......

My friend and I went to the Depot for dinner. I’ve been many times, my friend for lunch. I had the lemon chicken and she had a pulled pork sandwich. It took awhile to get our food. No problem with that. When our food arrived the pulled pork sandwich was cold. She sent it back for a warm sandwich and when it came back the asparagus was gone. Seriously? The lemon chicken was good. I had to ask a couple of times for extra lemon ( personal preference). The sauce on the chicken was thicker than it has been in the past and I would’ve liked more. The pulled pork sandwich, I was told, was just ok.
We decided to get dessert. We both ordered the peach cobbler. It was not that great. My friend found 2 slices of peach in her cobbler, I found 4. Very thick and heavy cobbler. I won’t order it again.
Having been here before, this Saturday evening left me disappointed.

We showed up at 12:15 pm on a Monday with a group of 6, WITH RESERVATIONS. We were seated immediately, however we were told that it would be 15 minutes before a server could speak to us. 20 minutes later, one showed up and took our order. Our food Arrived at 1:40pm, 1.5 hours after we walked into the door. We had sandwiches / burgers. It was the longest most incredibly frustrating lunch ever!
