Our Mission

Here at The Depot, we are committed to sustainable sourcing and responsibly harvesting food that we serve. Celebrating local and seasonal produce, providing ethical meat and dairy, and sourcing sustainable fish, we offer balanced menu options while engaging the local community.

Combating global environmental damage is not easy, but we want to do our part. Ensuring the future of fish stocks and preserving delicate marine ecosystems, we are part of James Beard Foundation’s Smart Catch Program. As the first restaurant in the state of Alabama to fully qualify for this program, we are thrilled to be leading the way for other restaurants to follow. 

With more than 90 percent of the world's fisheries either fully fished or overfished, preserving marine life and promoting sustainable options is more important than ever.

We are also proud to be working with great vendors such as:
Stone Hollow Farms, Strauss Meats, McEwen Farms, McEwen & Sons,  Hornsby Farms, and Open Blue Cobia
