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...More

We dined tonight at the best restaurant in Florence and perhaps the best along the Oregon Coast. It is a small place but with unparalled charm, food and service. This is our second time here and we lucked out to even get a table without...More

We had a particularly delicious meal here. Had to wait and sit at the bar which was all worth it. It was fun sitting at the bar watching the busy barman.

Not sure which one they serve. However...I can tell you that generally speaking the area seems to lean towards Pepsi products. When I travel I sometimes have trouble finding Pepsi so I was thrilled that Florence seems to be... More

We feature. We offer a full-service bar with a variety of regional and international wines as well as a selection of exciting martinis and specialty drinks, like Bill's Flaming Spanish Coffee, to compliment your meal. From the sophistication of our house favorite, Crab Encrusted Halibut, to the cozy warm satisfaction of our burger and fries, you're sure to find a dish to fit your desires at The Waterfront Depot. We use only the best local, organic beef and free-range chicken in our entrees. Our skilled culinary staff prepares all our menu items daily, guaranteeing you the freshest, most flavorful experience on the Central Oregon Coast. Atmosphere. Nestled on the river's shore, we offer a warm, cozy view of the Siuslaw River and the Siuslaw River bridge. Summer dining cafe-style outdoors on our weathered patio seats you right at the water's edge. Year-round dining inside offers you a beautiful river view with an urban touch, a perfect place for winter storm watching. Our history. The Waterfront Depot is housed in the old Mapleton Train Station. Saved from demolition over 40 years ago, this historic building found its new home on the shore of the Siuslaw river a stone's throw from the Siuslaw River Bridge. The old train station's warm, classic qualities offer a perfect counter balance to the sophisticated, urban atmosphere I've created in The Waterfront Depot.
