We spontaneously arrived at this restaurant without a reservation. I say this because reservations are advised! It's not a big place but well worth the visit. We ended up sitting at the bar and having a wonderful time talking with "neighbors." The crab-encrusted halibut was heartily recommended and we were so glad we ordered this wonderful dish. Out-of-this world and... More

Florence has some really excellent restaurants. I wish we had more of this as we traveled the coast of Oregon. Waterfront Depot has great food, ambiance, service, and the prices are ridiculous. It was, by far, the best quality/price we had in Oregon period. It was busy when we were there and opted to sit at the bar, which was... More

We always look forward to eating here. We live in Bend and do not have a restraunt that can even compare to this one. The atmosphere and the food and drinks are wonderful. We always bring our friends here and have yet to hear any complaints about any if the dishes. Love the crab encrusted halibut and all of the... More

We couldn't get thru by phone so we stopped by anyway. The kind hostess suggested we return in a half hour for a seat at the bar and it was well worth the return. The food and service were excellent and the company at the bar was fun. Had the halibut which was lovely and precedent it with crab cakes... More

We are traveling and wanted to find a place with good seafood. TripAdvisor did not include this restaurant in the Florence seafood category, but it should be! We had the Cajun salmon and jambalaya and finished with the chocolate layer cake. All were delicious, but what really made the evening was sitting at the bar (because we weren't able to... More

The Waterfront Depot is a small cozy restaurant. This restaurant exceeded our expectations. We had a perfect table with a view of the river. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. My husband had ahi tuna for an appetizer. I had smoked salmon and trout for an appetizer. Both dishes were well prepared. For the main course, we... More

Upscale without being hoity-toity! The food was spectacular! They appreciate a reservation because they are always so busy but you can usually get two seats at the bar. Fun to watch the bartender and other diners at the bar are full of information about your vacation itinerary!

Did not make reservations bad on my part! We did get a spot at the bar fairly quickly. Food was very good bar tender/ waiter friendly and entertaining. Will go back again next time we are in town.

It is hard to get thru on the phone, and when you do, it is hard to get a reservation because this place is very popular, and for a reason. We had a superb meal, good service, and I had the strongest margarita in my life! They have a "waiting area" on the porch, and we ended up eating out... More
