Wonderful, romantic old depoe building with a husband and wife team that really care about your experience. The food is excellent. Our steak was too well done at first, we mentioned it, and a new one swiftly re-emerged, done perfectly, It was Valentines Day Weekend so the place was swathed in red lamps and soft red light and our corner...

The Depot in Seaview, WA has been and continues to be a consistent delight. Terrific food prepared with imagination and a deft touch; really good servers; and skillful and good natured management. Really well run restaurants seem to run on autopilot. The Depot could teach lessons! And, this has been going on for eleven years! Only the best restaurants last... More

The Depot is small, cozy and has a great atmosphere. The waitress was great and the menu has a good selection. There's no better gumbo or ribeye.

The Depot Restaurant, where to begin. It is located just inside Seaview, Wa. Michel, the Owner and Head Chef, has himself a well known Dinner House style restaurant. His place, The Depot, is open 7 days a week. It is only open for dinner. I was commenting to him regarding the Filet Mignon that he prepared for me. Details in... More

We arrived without reservations on a Wednesday night. While they were busy, we were seated in about 15 minutes. It turns out that on Wednesdays, the regular menu is suspended and a choice of three burgers and several choices of toppings is available. You may choose from a buffalo burger, a portabella burger, or a beef burger. We all chose... More

We're never disappointed with The Depot except when we can't get a reservation! From from salads, soups/chowders, fish and meats, the seasonal menu is creative and consistently excellent. The winemaker events are something to do whenever possible. Tables typically need reservation, especially on weekends and in the summer. We like eating at the counter for a more relaxed experience, its... More

We have been doing this for 5 plus years and have yet to be disappointed. Micheal does a super job with the menu. The food has alway been fabulous. I would recommend the Depot year round.

Once again we enjoyed a great meal at this Seaview restaurant. I had the southern comfort pork with yam mashers and jalapeno creamed corn. I know, it's a place to have seafood, but this meal was special. We also had Willapa pan fried oysters for an appetizer and they were terrific. We only get to this part of the coast... More

This is one you should go out of your way to visit. Superb, locally-sourced and expertly-prepared seafood, great meats, excellent soups, and fantastic desserts. Clam chowder included local short season razor clams. French onion soup probably the best I've had anywhere. Creative and delicious entrée selection even included a delightful boar sausage stuffed, bacon-wrapped quail offering.
