Excellent selection of seafood and definitely one of the best clam chowders we've eaten. Our waiter was terrific! This restaurant serves lots of locals and visitors alike. Seating is limited so I strongly recommend reservations!

We made reservations here and the only time slot available was 8:00 pm. When you walk in you walk right past their tiny kitchen, upstairs and into their dining area. I ordered Encrusted Halibut with chowder instead of Caesar salad which was the right choice!...More

Crowded, noisy, but great food. Went with relatives who were visiting and their friends. Reservations are a must. The crab encrusted halibut was excellent.

Our hotel said this was THE place to go. They were right. A bit of a splurge place, but worth the money. Great food and service. Nice ambiance. A can't miss place.

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.
