The Depot - Green Bay, WI
During the pandemic lockdown, the Depot was one of those locations that we tried for takeout. They filled the space left behind by Titletown Brewery when they moved into the new building across the street, and at the time, we enjoyed what we ate. We all know, however, that food suffers in transit, so with company in town we decided it was time to go see them in person. We looked forward to seeing the old building in its renovated condition.
The Depot, filled to the gills with patrons, still managed to get us seated at the door during a busy Friday evening on the Fox. We checked in with multiple restaurants in the area and found the wait time to be more than an hour. However, the Depot had our backs. We were hungry. We weren’t in the mood for waiting. We were sat immediately, and we sat with our beverages for a time while the waitress busied herself with her other tables.
The Depot appeared to be afflicted with the same issue going on in many restaurants right now where the staffing is short, so I’ll caution you with them as I do with everyone else in the current climate: be patient. We’re all rushing out to enjoy summer weather in Green Bay, which means more people at restaurants that are understaffed compared to past seasons. Give them the benefit of the doubt, and many times you will be rewarded.
We were rewarded at the Depot for our patience with a delicious appetizer of poutine with fried cheese curds and delicious roasted brussels sprouts to share among our party of four. We wound up with many leftovers even just from this, and we repurposed them the next day into a breakfast hash for our visitors that left us all pleased. As for the actual food, the gravy of the poutine was the best part on some nice, soft fries beneath to carry the flavors. It’s an usual need of mine with poutine: a little more soft instead of extra crunch.
By this point I was so full that the chicken bacon ranch flatbread that I ordered was simply too much. I didn’t even take a bite at the time that we were sitting in the restaurant. I boxed it up to share with my husband on Sunday afternoon once our visitors had left to return home. We warmed it up in our airfryer, restoring some crunch to the flatbread itself-- and holy crap. The chicken was well seasoned, and the cheese blend complimented the saltiness of the bacon well. These flatbreads are some of the most attractive things on the menu for me, but your options are wide when you visit the Depot.
Burgers, sandwiches, pasta, formal entrees, and more are available each day. Like he often does, my husband enjoyed a burger. Our visitors had one of the fish entrees and a pasta dinner respectively. We all ate something different and all left with full bellies, having enjoyed our time at the Depot. You can visit their facebook page to see their specials for the week, or check out their website for their formal menu.
Thanks for a tasty meal!
