This is the best fine dining restaurant on the coast, and I include the Oregon coast in that. The menu changes on a regular basis and the chef is truly amazing. The setting is rustic and small, but is very warm and welcoming. They nightly offer wine specials that showcase little heard of, but great wines. In the winter months, they feature "Burger Night" every Wednesday and if you don't have a reservation- forget it! The burgers are excellent. And finally - they have the absolute best clam chowder I have ever eaten, and I've eaten a lot. Must try!

Spouse and I ate here in April. Called in at 3:00 for 6:00 reservation and got it (winter is slow in LB). Read (on Yelp) it would be good, but it really was great. Very inventive flavors, in what looks like a pub. Wish I could remember what we had, but it's been a couple of weeks, so can't, other than we has 2 appetizers, 1 beer, 1 desert and 2 entries. It came to$75 before tax, which is somewhat high, but it was worth it. Nice service, too. Warning: they tend to close early.

Wonderful, romantic old depoe building with a husband and wife team that really care about your experience. The food is excellent. Our steak was too well done at first, we mentioned it, and a new one swiftly re-emerged, done perfectly, It was Valentines Day Weekend so the place was swathed in red lamps and soft red light and our corner table was cozy and intimate. Definitely worth a repeat.

The Depot in Seaview, WA has been and continues to be a consistent delight. Terrific food prepared with imagination and a deft touch; really good servers; and skillful and good natured management. Really well run restaurants seem to run on autopilot. The Depot could teach lessons! And, this has been going on for eleven years! Only the best restaurants last and prosper this long and continue to deliver excellence. Our most recent dinner was a full-house wine tasting and dinner wlth l'ecole no. 41 from Walla Walla in March. Our fellow wine-drinkers were from all over the Northwest. It's worth the drive - arriving is like finding the gold at the end of the rainbow.

The Depot is small, cozy and has a great atmosphere. The waitress was great and the menu has a good selection. There's no better gumbo or ribeye.
