We stopped by this popular restaurant without a reservation, but the hostess was very accommodating, and had a table set for us on the annex/porch. Some people may have been unhappy about this, but we loved having a little porch to ourselves and a view of the garden and waterfront, as well as a good setting for dinner with our... More

If you travel through Florence Oregon and if deserve the best meal around then you must go to the Waterfront Depot. The best seafood menu around. Known far and wide for their crab encrusted halibut. I can't remember ever having a better seafood meal. Absolutely wonderful. A nice assortment of Oregon wines to choose from and a small selection of... More

The view, the food, the servers, the location, all perfect! It never disappoints. We make it a tradition to come for a July birthday dinner!

Great drinks and best lamb shank dinner in town! Close to home with a great view. Gets a bit crowded as it's wildly popular no doubt.

Food is always very tasty. We eat here often when in Florence. Reservations are a must. The crab encrusted halibut is the favorite of most people who go there. Crab cakes are also great. I recently had lamb chops which were also very good. Never had anything I did not like.

The food was prepared to perfection, the view was beautiful, and our waitress was the most helpful, sweetest person you could ever hope to meet. A very busy and popular place ... and they go out of their way to accommodate you if they can. Highly recommend!

Stayed in Florence for a few days...tried twice for reservations and was able to land a table. Wonderful food and atmosphere. Our waitress told me when I was looking between fish and chips or the crab encrusted Halibut..."you can have fish and chips all the way up and down the coast, but the Halibut is something you will dream about"....

Arrived early for a 9 pm reservation. Reservations are advised. Seated us in our own private room. Tom, the manager was very nice and helpful. The food was pleasantly inexpensive and very good. Great atmosphere right on the water. Would definitely go back.

We went here because of good reviews. We were not disappointed. You do need to make a reservation and it is one that stays open a little later. Our server was nice and it is on the river

Very nice restaurant on the waterfront! Best to make reservations, if possible. We were able to walk in at 9 pm and get a table. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Definitely would eat here again.
