We really enjoyed our dinner and drinks at the Waterfront Depot. We had tons of cocktail tasters from the bar staff, and even a sample of one of the deserts! We would definitely recommend this place to others who want a true 'Florence' seafood experience.

Had a fabulous dinner here last night. The razor clams were the best I've ever had. Tom the bartender was a lot of fun! Food was NOT overpriced as another patron stated.

We chose this restaurant because of reviews and menu, and we found it over-hyped, over-priced and mediocre. We won't return, unless no other options are available.

I've been a long time customer of the W.D. And long have enjoyed what for Florence, is very 'inspired' cuisine. However, the last few times I've been in, I couldn't wait to be headed back out the door. Some of the staff seem stressed out...More

Fun place to hang out. Live music 7 nights a week. Good dinner menu (see online). Ate their two nights in a row during our stay in Yachats. Staff okay, not exactly outgoing but not rude.

The food was very good and the setting was pretty, but a bit restricted. We asked for a riverfront table and a tabletop for 2 was available. It was given to the reservation that arrived after us. Steamed clams were wonderful. Service o.k. Slow for...More

Had a very good late evening meal here. Our waiter was very attentive. They suggested we move to a window table when that became available before our food was served. The only downside was that it was noisy but that also indicates that people were...More

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.
