Just dropped in

We were on a casual early evening walk about the harbor area and had read the good and bad and decided to give it a try. We were promptly seated and ordered drinks. Excellent lemon drops. The specials menu was broad and varied. The food was delivered promptly, almost too much so. The quality was... read more

We were enjoying the Oregon Coast around Florence and saw the great reviews of Waterfront Depot on Tripadvisor. We followed the advise to make reservations, which we also advise as the restaurant is small and the food is fantastic. My wife had the Flat Iron Steak with Chimichuri Sauce. It was served over a Black Bean and Corn Medley. She... More

Delicious, as always! The crab-crusted halibut is amazing! Good cocktails, too. Call to make a reservation so you get a table.

The food at Waterfront Depot is excellent, especially the Crab-encrusted Halibut, and the prices decent. They serve alcoholic beverages if you are so inclined to partake. There are two drawbacks but they might not bother most: one, you must walk up several steps to get into the building, walk past the kitchen in a narrow area and then up another... More

I am a repeat customer about once every 6 weeks. The food is excellent and quality of the food consistent. My favorites are the calamari steak appetizer, the lamb and (best of all), the crab encrusted halibut. The staff seems to be steady, and service is excellent. They have good alcoholic beverages if you choose with a very personable bartender.

We had dinner at the bar, great friendly service, convivial atmosphere, we chatted with the other guests and just hung out. Our group really like the Arruz Com Marisco Portuguese, and the Cajun oysters. Prices are fair, and that means that compared to most places they are low. Wine markups are exceeding fair. Great food, great setting and vibe, fair... More

Stopped with my sis on the way back from the coast at 4:10 on a Monday afternoon and this charming place was already filling up. Prices are truly surprising, in a good way. Had the crab encrusted cod with yukon mash and a small salad. A perfect martini. Sis had cappellini with scallops and a light mushroom sauce. Service good.... More

We had a few small plates at the bar and they were all great. I had the crab stuffed mushrooms - yikes was it good. I still think about it! Best to get reservations since is the best place in town.

Quaint, romantic setting on the river. Excellent service, and food. Price very low for quality of menu. Get a reservation early, very popular place.
