Really enjoyed eating here and thought it was reasonably priced. Great service. The clam chowder was excellent. They do need to change out their carpet though! The tables could be replaced too! Not the most comfortable!

If you're curious when you drive by - you'll definitely want to stop in, especially if you like seafood. Always been pleased with the service and the food. Also recommend the carrot salad for lunch - very yummy.

This place is way to over priced for the quality of food you get. Front of the house service is friendly and adequate. Food tasted spoiled or like the freezer it was kept in. You can get a better variety and better quality at McGraths in Corvallis. This was strike 3 for me and I won't go back. Whole family... More

This is a cozy casual restaurant which does one thing and does it well - serve great tasting seafood. The fare is somewhat simple, but is served quickly, and if you like bay shrimp, this is your place! I had lunch here recently and had a cup of good clam chowder with a green salad, topped with bay shrimp. The... More

When I'm in the mood for fried seafood, this is the place I always go to. Very good seafood platter and always large portions at a fair price.

This small restaurant is only open for lunch or dinner. They specialize in fried fish and side dishes such as shrimp salad, shrimp carrot salad and of course regular dinner salads. Alcohol is available. If you love fish and chips, this is a great place. They have very interesting decorations, including 2 saltwater fish tanks. I woudl eat there again.

I like going to a favorite restaurant and knowing that it will always be good. The Depot is like that. They have fried shrimp dinners, in different sizes, that come with salad (with bay shrimp on top) and fries. Lots of fries. The wine list is small, but well-rounded, and there are beers and lemonade. It's a comfortable, friendly place... More

This is an interesting/historic little restaurant. The service was very good, and the food was delicious. I had halibut fish and chips. It was great. We will return.
