The Depot Bar is located across the street from the Mississippi River. You can sit out on the patio and enjoy lunch while watching the River traffic and scenery. A tv is outside to enjoy your favorite team, brew and the food was very good....More

My husband and I wanted to eat outside by the river. The food was great, beer was good, help was so friendly, and we were able to eat outside, across the tracks, in the park, in the shade and by the river. Pleasant evening.

The bartenders are very nice and they make a mean Bloody Mary. It is fried or deep fried food, but they do a good job with that. Beautiful view of the Mississippi River.

Great location, good burgers, chicken strips and cheese balls. Great stop for lunch after hiking at Effigy Mounds. Right along the river!
