Contemporary American
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.

    I had a terrible experience with my family. Our waitress did not refill drinks or come back to table for 30 minutes. Hostess helped other tables but did not help us with water refills. Food was mediocre and took 45 minutes. I had to refill my own soda and separate checks.

    Do not recommend. Issues from the start. Hostess was rude and condescending for no reason. Slow, but understandable as many service industry things are. But slow to the point of not acknowledging and purposefully avoiding their customers, which is worse. Saw many individuals around us with the same issue. However, food overpriced and of poor quality. There’s food prep and all of that, but the food here was clearly prepared way in advance, put together 2 mins prior, and not the right temp. Everything salted heavily to the point of hypertensive crisis to cover up the low quality of food. Sandwich and chip appetizer specifically on that one. Biggest issue was a southwest-y salad I ordered. $14 plus an additional $7 for like 3oz of overcooked steak. But salad legitimately was a large serving of basic spring mix that had like a small scoop of avocado, beans, and roasted corn. Like, that’s it. Legit I could’ve made a much better salad at Whole Foods down the way. Which I ended up doing. Look, I get that business are cutting corners and struggling at this time. At the same time, a poor product is a poor product. And this is what this place is. Obviously don’t recommend.

    The southwest salad needs other ingredients aside from a giant bowl of greens. They skimped on everything but the greens and I so regretted my selection. Great wait staff!

    Service was terrible. After our drink order, the waiter disappeared. I could see him filling water bottles and moving dishes while we just sat there waiting for our good order to be taken. Finally the manager asked us how we were doing and we gave her our good order. At this point we had been there almost an hour. Not a good experience.

    Centrally located, great food, good service from Chris, good delivery time, beer selection needs expansion in dark and amber beers, fair price, very noisy. Host staff was polite, but not very friendly and tried to seat us at the bar when we had a table reservation and are nearly 80 years old--she needs some serious coaching. Parking is okay in adjoining parking garage. Consistent restaurant with great variety on the menu. We go regularly!

    I asked for the dressing on the side for my salad. It came with dressing on it. So I sent it back. 20 minutes later it came with just lettuce…..none of the stuff that was supposed to be on it, ie pumpkin seeds, apples, cranberries, etc. Just dry lettuce. Not the salad I ordered. The waiter also was very inattentive.

    Second time we’ve ordered the Brussels sprouts, and the chef / prep-cook doesn’t trim the inedible, woody stalks off of them. Burger and prime rib dip sandwiches were very good.

    It's a bar not a restaurant. If you're interested in the history of the building just look it up. If you do want to enter, don't expect to have a conversation with person across from you. And be patient, they are still struggling to get good service for the tables. Keep all that in mind and you won't be disappointed.

    Last night on vacation. Overall ok. Not worth the $45 for the ribeye. My shrimp bowl was delicious. The steak meh and over priced. My hubs special bourbon cocktail tasted like it was made w rye not bourbon. Loved dining in the historic building and know that staffing issues exist. Our server was delightful but not so present.

    Lovely place in Boulder tucked behind a main road. If we didn’t look it up, we never would have known it was there. We started with the pretzel knots and queso…so good! Then, we split a rib-eye steak and added asparagus. It was just the right amount for both of us and everything was delicious. We’ll definitely be back.
