Excellent food and reasonably priced.This is not your basic ham and eggs place for breakfast.The seafood is always fresh and their meats are top quality.

If you are in the Long Beach/Sea View area you have to have a meal at The Depot. The food was truly exceptional. But the staff is what makes the evening special. It was my wife's Birthday and we had a terrific night.They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. With an open kitchen set up it was... More

Had a wonderful dinner here on a quiet Monday night. The petrale special and razor clam bucatini were both excellent choices. Nice, old-style vibe. Friendly owner and staff. Wonderful ambiance. Chocolate tart put us over the edge in a decadent way.

Over the past 59 years of our marriage, we have eaten at a lot of Restaurants and the Depot ranks in the top five. The Depot was recommended by Bill at Boreas B&B and we were very pleased with his suggestion. I had the Filet and my wife had oysters,both dishes were prepared very well, and the service was excellent... More

This restaurant never disappoints ! We've been coming here for years, and it still can't be beat. We enjoyed the ling cod dinner which was delicious, and the pan fried oysters, which were the best I've ever eaten. We had the blackberry bread pudding for dessert, and it was to die for. The service was once again, very good. We... More

I have never had a bad experience at The Depot. I've been there for numerous occasions and eaten their seafood, steak, and even their burgers. If you can make it for one of their burger nights, do it. Seriously. This is a must-visit place. Make a reservation, if they take them and make a thing out of it. The have... More
