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.

It was so good to return to the Roadhouse after too long of a break. It was every bit as wonderful as we remembered.

This place never disappoints. We tried their steaks on this visit and would easily put them in the top 5 for steak in Colorado.

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.

We've been to Boulder Depot several times and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. This time, however, the service was below par for the establishment. When the waiter was at the table he was pleasant and attentive, but getting his attention when we needed something took a lot longer than it should have.

The food was amazing but the drinks were not that good. After forgetting one of our appetizers , they also forgot to discount our bill for ladies night by $50. Food was tasty but the wait was long and half of the stuff we ordered never came

This was our first visit to Roadhouse Depot and we're happy to have gone. When we were greeted the hostess immediately apologized that they were understaffed. We appreciated her giving us the heads up. Next our waiter apologized for being understaffed. Both were gracious, prompt, and delightful. Our waiter spoke knowledgeably to the food and beverage options, providing us recommendations. Our meals were prompt and delicious. All of us would happily order our dishes again, Brussels appetizer, Poke Bowl, Lemon Chicken, and New York Strip. The New York was the only item I could see room for improvement as it was too thin of a cut both for the preparation and the price. That aside, our son enjoyed it and flavorful sauce it was served with. Understaffed? They never let it show...service was attentive, food was prompt and everyone had a smile on their face. Will happily return!

We tried getting bottomless mimosas and our waiter denied all of our IDs when we are all 21 and one of us was 22. Said he wasn’t going to be rude and take them but they are clearly fake ids. Can’t believe someone has a job where they can say a real id is fake. Oh well they lost out on business and we will never go back.

The atmosphere and service were absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and hit all the right notes! Whether it was the staple of Chicken Wings or the Thai Peanut Noodles, everything was beyond tasty. If you’re looking for a nice spot to go on a date or just to hang out with friends, this should be your new spot!

A local favorite for us. Great place for a burger and beer, but a lot of variety also. Food and service never disappoints. Not very crowded for a Thursday lunch. Only problem is needing to use the paid parking garage, but that is getting to be a much more common problem in Boulder.
