I guess it really is all in perspective. I wasn't overly impressed by any aspect of it. Got my appetizer before my drink. The hot buttered rum was very well made. The clam chowder was underwhelming. The calamari was just odd; chewy and no flavor. I was having a hard time deciding between the halibut and the jambalaya pasta; the... More

This restaurant is amazing, the whole package from the moment you approach the parking lot, to the doorway, through the entrance and capturing the essence of atmosphere. I highly recommend the Waterfront Depot.

We ate here last night and had the best time! The restaurant has a gorgeous view, even though we got there after dark. I had the crab encrusted halibut (to DIE for!) and my husband had a very excellent burger. I had 2 drinks, a lemon drop and a hot buttered rum, both delicious! Our server was delightful, his name...

Lovely atmosphere; pleasant, efficient servers; more than adequate food, especially the cakes. Based on other reviewers' recommendations, we made a reservation - although we arrived half an hour early and though people were coming in right behind us, we were seated cheerfully almost at once. We'll be back.

Great food, but call early because this place is well known and fills up fast during the summer season!

We've eaten here several times and are generally impressed with what happens. First off, and as mentioned by others, is the service and ambience. Both very good. Small place, tables close but not bothersome, and our waitress was wonderful; attentive but not overbearing. Never used any of the stupid phrases such as "no problem", "fantastic" or "are you still workin'... More

We loved this Waterfront Depot. It is right on the River, and a great view of the Bridge. Seafood was delicious. You really need a reservation or take a chance and sit at the lively bar to eat your dinner. We sat at the bar for a drink before dinner, and it was fun--lots of happy people!

Small, cozy restaurant with very good food and a deep wine list. I had the Razor Clams; they were fresh and quite large. Very nice! The servers were friendly and accommodating. Our group of 8 came a half hour early for our reservation on a busy night and they found us an extra table within 5 mins. Great! PS -... More

We read about this place on trip advisor and decided to make reservations and give it a try! It was great! We had a window seat looking at the river and bridge. We thought it had the feel of an old English pub. Our server was excellent, the food was awesome and overall we really enjoyed our meal!
