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"

This is our go to place when we visit Long Beach. We have been multiple times over the years and have yet to have a bad meal. The standard menu hasn’t changed much over the last few years, but that just means that it’s perfected. We usually have the scallop appetizer and I love the Depot greens with pears and blue cheese. My wife loves their spinach salad. I had the Wild Boar ragu with handmade gnocchi. My wife got the spinach salad upsized to her main course.
We did miss(due to Covid)being seated at the Chef’s table. Fun to watch up close and personal cooking! Dessert was the apple crumble which was also excellent.

While at the Oregon coast with family we decided to dine at The Depot. This is one of our Oregon families favorite spots but our first time. Everyone’s meal was outstanding, especially my Chingali with gnocchi. The wine list was surprisingly diverse. Our server Elaine was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

We are locals that were enjoying a date night out for our spring break staycation. We ordered the small plate meatballs and the brasato and catch of the day (grilled sturgeon) for our entrees. All of the food was delicious as were the drinks. Our server took excellent care of us, making sure that we had everything we needed. It was definitely an excellent experience.

Words are not enough...The Depot is OUTSTANDING!!!! We had the grilled salmon and it was delicious ....perfect in every way. A little crisp on the outside and juicy and tender inside. But the real BOMB!!! were the Oysters Escargot. NEVER EVER have I had better.
The Depot is worth every penny and we will be back!!!!

We love to treat ourselves to the depot every Valentines Day. Nancy is so kind & works so hard to ensure everyone is satisfied. Michael is a suburb cook & his menu is devine! It has a warm atmosphere & makes you feel welcome. The aroma is very pleasing as is the food. Have liked everything we have tried so far & portions are filling. They offer Bread & our food came out really quickly. Don't forget dessert. The snicker cheesecake was the best. Hope to make more wonderful memories together here.

We visited the restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel concierge and although we were a little skeptical it was every bit as wonderful as suggested. Small but socially distanced tables, a great bar area, very cosy.

Not an extensive menu but covers something for everyone. Our meal was delicious as was our wine choices. We heartily recommend The Depot

The staff is friendly and welcoming. The food is amazing. I was craving oysters and their pan fried oyster dinner was delicious. During these crazy times they have done a great job with social distancing. The Depot has been one of my favorite restaurants for years, always worth the visit.

We had a wonderful dinner with our friends, Kevin and Laura for my husband's 68th birthday celebration. The food was (as always) awesome and the Steak Killean (which I've had numerous times over the past 15 years) was exceptional and consistent with the quality of the food at The Depot!

Our server, Ashley, was personable without being intrusive. Her humor and kindness made our dinner truly celebratory. The five of us all ordered the house salad and ribeye (that’ll happen when two of you have recently been lost in the woods, and the other three spent the night waiting up for you to be rescued). The entrees were cooked to perfection,
