Loved this restaurant! Every person, from the hostess to the server to the bussers, were fantastic, friendly and provided excellent service! The wilted spinach salad was the best salad that I have ever ordered anywhere. Highly recommend making The Depot a "must go there" restaurant, when you are in Long Beach, WA.
Best restaurant on the peninsula.
Small building, formerly the train station (until 1930). Eight tables. Open kitchen. Jazz throughout. Waitstaff on point. Ambiance plus. Amazing food, like we wanted to place some of those flavors, but that is what makes great food just that, we were left in awe. I would have taken pictures, but it would have broken the spell. If you happen to find yourself on the Long Beach Peninsula in WA, check it out.
Small gem of a place tucked away in a small beach town. Oysters and clam chowder were excellent. Nice wine selection. Good mix of locals and tourists-and while the locals were greeted with hugs, we were made to feel welcome and taken care of. We’d definitely go back.
This is our go to place when in Long Beach. Organic, local, grass fed beef, fresh seafood. Local beer and wine. Amazing desserts. Great service. Photos below. Forgot to take before eating. There is a little salmon on the steak plate and vice versa.
Went for dinner on a Sunday evening. Food and service were great. Will definitely be going back.
We have gone to the Depot a few times now and each time dinner was great! The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. The food is outstanding. Chef Michael does a great job incorporating local fare into a one of kind menu.
It was hamburger night with friends. Delicious. Great wine!
Best restaurant In Long Beach. Everything is fresh and locally sourced. The atmosphere is cozy and quaint. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Love this place!
Awesome bacon stuffed quail!! Very cool to watch the chef cook.
We did not stay at the restaurant because they had a special "Burgers Only" night that we were not aware of until we arrived. The restaurant did try to contact us before hand to tell us of the menu change but I missed the message. We had been wanting items from the regular menu. It would have been nice to have the burger night advertised on the website since we learned it was a regular for the winter months on Wednesdays. If we would have stayed we were not happy with our place of being seated, right in the aisle next to the kitchen since we had reservations and the rest of the restaurant was still empty. We will try again.
The Depot is yummy and welcoming, relaxing and a perfect place to celebrate Valentines or any day!
This was our first time dining at The Depot and wish I’d known about it sooner! Love the ambiance and the welcoming atmosphere! The food and service were both outstanding!
We enjoyed Valentine's dinner at The Depot, great service and food. We always make it a point for a Depot dinner when visiting the coast..a true gentleman.
Flavors. That is what the food was all about. Many different, great flavors.
Fish was over seasoned and looked like a plate that came from Dennys. Older gall, believe she was an owner was very polite, however our online reservations fell through, told it happens all the time. Old guy with the gray pony tail was beyond rude, made my wife and i very uncomfortable. Will never go back, over priced but were turned off it was just plain bad. Couldnt eat it!
Quaint, quiet, great food and service.
We come to the Depot whenever we're in Seaview, at least a couple of times a year and it's the highlight meal of the trip. Their steaks are the melt in your mouth variety - high quality and great value. At the front end appetizers and back end desserts are always a wow too. The staff are all pleasant and genuine.
This was our 5th visit to the Depot. Food is always sooo good. Quaint spot owned by charming people. Next time we are at Seaview, you will find us at a table or the bar .
This was a great dining experience. The food was awesome as was the service. Both server and hostess were friendly and helpful. Mentioned it was my wife’s birthday and the dessert we ordered came with a candle and no charge. Definitely going back!
Wonderful place for a reunion with friends. The local crowd was packed in tight but it never felt overwhelming. This place is quaint.
We are locals who really enjoy our dining experiences at the Depot. The food is excellent. The owners are accessible and knowledgeable, use local farms and ranches for the food. Also, local wines and brews.
Fantastic! HOT, Tasty, tender, satisfying meal! Great service and super welcoming environment.
Excellent service and food. Very good wine selection. We had NYE dinner here and it was our first visit. It will not be our last! I would recommend getting a reservation as it is a small place.
Delicious as always! We started with the French onion soup, suburb! Then I had a "little plate" of the large 3 scallops in a mango sauce. The sauce was too spicy for my Swedish palate, but were cooked perfectly. Husband had the 7 oz. fillet, and was cooked to perfection. We dine there 6-10 times a year, and always is the best!
Our experience in the past several years has been awesome. Always the host staff and chiefs are very friendly. The service has also been good overall.
We were looking forward to a wonderful meal again with our friends and we all were sorely disappointed. There were so many people in the restaurant and difficult to express our concerns to the waiter. I’m sure the reason our meal was over cooked was because of the crowd.
When small amount of people we always get a tender juicey melt in your mouth filet mignon cooked perfectly medium rare.
Wel’ll go back just not on a holiday. It’s one of our favorite places on the peninsula.
Loved this place.
We went here for Christmas Dinner, made reservations in advance. The food was very good. nice wine selection. I had the freshly caught salmon and my partner had steak. The dessert, apple crumble was way too sweet with to much liquid sugar but the ice cream on top was nice. It's a cute restaurant, small and cosy with lots of interesting decorating around
Hands down, my favorite restaurant on the Long Beach Peninsula.
We walked to this restaurant from our motel about a mile and 1/4 along the ocean path. Lovely walk to and from.
Did not enjoy eating at bar. Called two weeks in advance and return call put us at bar for our dinner time. Noisy, drafty from door opening and closing. One couple at bar was moved to a table that came after us (no reservation). Food was luke warm. Lamb shank was tough. Very disappointed expeeience for Christmas Eve.
I’m a regular and enthusiastic diner at The Depot. It’s one of my priority stops whenever I’m at the beach. The food preparation is exceptional. The staff is professional and yet engaging and friendly even when the press of business is hectic. Because the restaurant is an old railroad station the ambiance lends an atmosphere of coziness. Often diners seated next to each other engage in conversation. Thus a feeling of camaraderie and engagement prevails. This all adds up to a TOP NOTCH dining experience.
Fantastic experience! It was our 25th anniversary so we were seated at ‘the chef’s table’ right next to the kitchen. Observing the chefs cook was like watching a culinary ballet. Our food, the service and ambiance were all outstanding. Best anniversary celebration ever!!
The Depot became our favorite restaurant within the first bite!
I'm only sorry I waited so long to go. Fresh food made with experience and love.
I wanted to hug the kitchen staff!
Next time for sure!
The quality of our meal was exceptional and beautifully presented. We look forward to dinner at The Depot each time we are in the area.
Second visit. Lovely restaurant that consistently offers delicious food!!
We visited this restaurant the 1st time about 13 or 14 years ago. It was excellent then and still is today. Live in the area now so will be able to frequent more often. Exceptional!
I have been to The Depot several times and the food and service are always excellent!!
My friend had never been there and was very impressed!
Cozy, friendly, excellent service, great food. A real gem, I'm always happy to recommend and it doesn't disappoint. A very special place without being fussy.
Wow this was bad! Good luck friends! Expensive and not at all good.
