We feature. We offer a full-service bar with a variety of regional and international wines as well as a selection of exciting martinis and specialty drinks, like Bill's Flaming Spanish Coffee, to compliment your meal. From the sophistication of our house favorite, Crab Encrusted Halibut, to the cozy warm satisfaction of our burger and fries, you're sure to find a dish to fit your desires at The Waterfront Depot. We use only the best local, organic beef and free-range chicken in our entrees. Our skilled culinary staff prepares all our menu items daily, guaranteeing you the freshest, most flavorful experience on the Central Oregon Coast. Atmosphere. Nestled on the river's shore, we offer a warm, cozy view of the Siuslaw River and the Siuslaw River bridge. Summer dining cafe-style outdoors on our weathered patio seats you right at the water's edge. Year-round dining inside offers you a beautiful river view with an urban touch, a perfect place for winter storm watching. Our history. The Waterfront Depot is housed in the old Mapleton Train Station. Saved from demolition over 40 years ago, this historic building found its new home on the shore of the Siuslaw river a stone's throw from the Siuslaw River Bridge. The old train station's warm, classic qualities offer a perfect counter balance to the sophisticated, urban atmosphere I've created in The Waterfront Depot.

Beautiful Location

We didn't eat here (it was pretty much booked out unless you sat at the bar and this was a weekday night!) but got a glass of wine. The bar staff were really friendly and it was good to have wine from Oregon. We went and sat outside next to the river, which was just stunning. We even saw a... read more

We had a reservation but showed up about 1/2 hour early to have a drink at the bar. The host told us we would have to wait for our reservation and we were fine with that. 5 minutes later..."your table is ready". Nice table with a beautiful view of the river. We ordered a caprese platter to start-mozzarella and tomatoes.... More

The chowder is really, really good! I would suggest you make reservations, they will reserve space up to year in advance. We will be going back! Skip Moes and head here!

I loved the ambience and classy decor. Okay prices for some delicious food. It is small, so consider making reservations, especially if you want to sit by the big bay window.

Like many others, we didn't reserve in time and had to eat at the bar... A great experience. The food was terrific and the bar ambiance was super. We visited with bar tender and people were both local and out of state. Our meals were so good we did something we almost never do, went back a second time. We... More

If you want a table a reservation is a must! We did not so we had the option of waiting for a seat at the bar or trying another restaurant. We waited for a place at the bar and it was the best decision we could have made. Everyone was very friendly and conversation was easy to get into. Our... More

We celebrated out 26th anniversary in Florence and this place was recommended to us by the owners of the Old Town Inn. Hubby had the flat iron steak and I had the crab salad. We loved the atmosphere and the food was fresh and fantastic! Reservations are recommended as the place is tiny. Perfect meal!

This place was recommended by one of the owners at the hotel, Shi we walked about five minutes to get there. I understand that there is usually a long east, but we were fortunate to arrive around 9PM. We ordered the crab cakes, the two orders of the crab encrusted halibut. It was one of the best meals we've had,... More
