Historic Family Restaurant in Mitchell, SD

Dine in the enchanting atmosphere of our family restaurant in Mitchell, SD, a renovated historic train depot. We’re proud to serve a wide range of appetizing American cuisine that is sure to please the palate of any patron. Whether you’re in the mood for something traditional or something modern, we have a dish that you will enjoy.


The Depot was previously used for passengers and freight for more than 40 years, beginning in 1908. It served the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, and Pacific Railroads until it eventually faced bankruptcy. After that, it closed and sat empty for years, until 1990 when it was registered as a historic site in the National History Registers. Once it had been renovated, it became the location of our dining establishment, offering guests a showcase of the past while they enjoy their meals.
