This was our first visit to the Alanson area. We were so happy with our dinner at the Depot!!! Friendly people, great service, and delicious food. My husband had the bluegill dinner and I had the burger with cheese and bacon. We both had the onion rings— not to be missed! The vegetable with my husband’s dinner were the most fantastic brussel sprouts ever—- roasted and infused with balsamic vinegar. Lucky me that my husband shared the large portion. I suggest that they be put permanently on the menu. Maybe as a starter? Yes, they are SO good! We can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. We definitely recommend it and will return when visiting this area. Thanks everyone!!!

My husband and I have visited The Depot about 5 times this past summer. Our last visit was truly 'over the top" exceptional. First, we came into Alanson by boat; staying at our favorite hotel, The Crooked River Lodge. Upon calling 4 different taxi companies listed near or around Alanson, no one was available to shuttle us to The Depot for dinner. Therefore, I thought I would try call The Depot and asking if they offered a shuttle; no was the answer; however, they offered to come and PICK US UP from the Lodge! OMG! There was 6 of us; so they sent two vehicles to get us; within 10 minutes of my call! Very impressive! Our waiter Flip was an outstanding gentleman; funny, gracious, and attended to all of our food needs quickly, and with a smile on his face! Thanks again, Flip. Once again our food was delicious; I ordered the Pecan Encrusted Salmon which was to "die for"! Yes, of course, we would go back; again, and again. P.S. Their Bloody Mary's are awesome!!
