This restaurant tends to be packed so you need a reservation. In tourist season it is way too noisy for my pleasure. The food is terrific especially the tapas

Waterfront Depot has dependably good and reasonably priced food excellently served in a rustic, informal atmosphere. Fresh fish and other seasonal favorites are supplemented with daily specials. Excellent bar and wine selection. Save room for dessert! Oh, seating is limited, so reservations are usually a must during summer season.

The crab-encrusted halibut is divine. Difficult to get a table. Just wait for room at the bar. The bar is entertaining so sitting there adds another dimension to the experience. If you want a waterfront table, make a reservation well in advance. One of the very best places to eat in Florence.

Delicious food, friendly staff and incredible menu/kitchen made for a memorable evening and one of the best meals I've had in a while. The first impression when you walk up to the place is like..where's the front door? And the front door is a little side door where you actually walk through a section of the kitchen before entering the... More

Everytime we go to the coast we stopped at the waterfront Depot. They have always delivered even with only 10 tables they manage to accommodate people starting at 5pm with excellent food at a reasonable price with wonderful service. Wine was not expensive with retail pricing rather than typical doubled rates.

A small place but excellent food. Make a reservation! Even on a weeknight. We didn't, so they squeezed us in at the bar. Which turned out to be fun actually, because we got to talk to some local folks on either side of us and had a nice time. They recommended the crab encrusted halibut and it was amazing. I'm... More

The food was excellent and the atmosphere cozy but I would not recommend for large groups as it is in a small area. Even with our larger group the services was still excellent. The view was beautiful and I will visit again (with smaller groups).

My sister and I were in Florence after a track meet in Eugene. The hotel recommended the Waterfront Depot, but strongly suggested reservations. Good call. We were able to get early (4pm) reservations on our first visit and loved everything. Before leaving we made reservations for a particular table (there are three tables on the river...a four top and two... More

My husband and I live an hour south, but often head up for a nice day and overnight stay. The Waterfront Depot is perfect for us for a couple beers for my husband and a wonderful martini for myself. The marionberry cocktail I had a few months back was so good, I dream about it (LOL). Though their dinners look... More
