The Depot Restaurant - Seaview features casual fine dining offering a Chef's Table to watch owner Chef Michael Lalewicz perform his magic from a display kitchen. The covered heated deck adds outdoor seating. A northwest and international wine list offers 16 wines by the glass, five microbrews and a hard cider on-tap. This 132 year old train station from the peninsula's Clamshell Railroad feels like a French Bistro especially when seated at the 9 seat counter reminding one of the Orient Express. Northwest Palate claims "Lalewicz has food angels in the kitchen" and food writer Gerry Frank of the Oregonian declares "the Depot is one of the best Dinner Houses in the Northwest"

    Love the Depot! Always get amazing service and great food. Wish they would have a fresh sheet with some new options. For local people having the same menu for years and years it gets a little stale, it would be fun to have a monthly fresh sheet for some new things to try

    Everything was delicious. My husband and I both enjoyed the steak Killian, it was cooked perfectly and veggies and scalloped potatoes were amazing. We had the peach Chinle cobbler for dessert it was the best ever. We spent 4 days in long beach and this was by far the best meal we had. It's worth the price for sure.

    THE place on the peninsula! We had the 2 chef specials- rib eye and salmon- both fantastic. Without drinks, or wine, it's still easy to drop over $100 for 2. Don't let cost stop you. You live but once! Food and service were great! Make reservations online because, even on Sunday night it was full.

    We had a lovely evening at the Depot. The food was fantastic! We’ll be back for sure. I wish I had booked a table inside though. I chose outside because it’s summer and beautiful, but it was an inclosed tent. Our table neighbor brought a cat! That she had on her shoulder and was feeding. Weird! It didn’t ruin our evening, I’m sure it’s just a small town thing.

    The ambience was excellent we were seated at the chefs table and got to speak with the chef and watch food preparation and cooking. Our server Don was great as he always is. All of our dinners were excellent from the rib eye steaks to the crab Mac and the southern comfort pork. It’s always a great time with great service and exceptional food. The bottle of Tamarack Cabernet was very good😋

    We love visiting the Depot. The food is interesting and the value is excellent. We LOVE the mango-spicy scallops and the calamari. For a main dish, I had the prawn noodles which I felt was pedestrian, but everything else was quite wonderful.

    The Depot is an excellent place to dine. It has charm, the food is varied, interesting and tasty. They offer outdoor seating for those so inclined. Everything we've tried there has been amazing... it makes selecting difficult because there's so much to choose from. Definitely recommend and will be back!

    On our second visit we were disappointed. We appreciate the opportunity to eat out on their heated outdoor patio during covid. Delivery of the food is fairly quick however the water came slowly with no ice, the waitress didn't bring the wine until after our food arrived when my husband asked for it a second time. We weren't offered their good bread until after our entrees had arrived when the manager came by to check if it had been offered. My husband ordered Willapa Bay oysters "escargot" in a butter sauce that had too much lemon and very little garlic flavor. When he asked for grilled oysters the waitress had suggested this as being very good but he would have preferred them grilled. I ordered the duck which comes with a honey mustard sauce. I asked them to put it on the side and I'm glad I did because the mustard was so stron it would have overpowered the duck flavor. The duck was dry. I'm used to duck confit cooked in duck fat making it juicy and flavorful so I too was disappointed. My green beans were under cooked. The delicious wild rice pilaf was cooked with craisens, celery and onion. I also enjoyed the small piece of grilled corn on the cob. Their lawn chairs have short legs, don't slide easily and have a hard very prominent bar that crosses under the thighs making the seating uncomfortable.

    Chefs table was nice food was incredible always has been, when Michael retired and restaurant was sold I was concerned everything would change too much for the worse for it to feel like the regular vacation restaurant I’ve lived for years & would be disappointing. I went with a friend and was very happy my concern was not what happened.

    Fantastic restaurant- my husband and I have dined here on 4 occaisions- their Steak Killian (filet mignon) is the best we have ever had - above Ruth Chris and Morton’s! Their salads are great - we had their wilted spinach salad - and their clam chowder was perfect! So glad we were told about this restaurant - it seems to be a coastal favorite for a lot of folks around the Cannon Beach area - for us it is so worth the drive from CB to Seaview Washington - and the restaurant is a historical landmark as it was an actual train depot station years ago. The wait staff are all personable and friendly and efficient and the chef knocks it out of the park every time we have been there!

    We had the best dinner, the Southern Comfort Pork and the Clams Bucatini out of this world. It was a birthday celebration and the service was the best, not to mentions the final gesture of a complimentary dessert. The staff could not be any more friendly and attentive. We haven't been here in a while but will be back much sooner.
