We love having an abundance of wild game and such easy access to fresh seafood. With that, we are adding some new entrées to the menu featuring new wild game and seafood.

Nachos is just one of the many entrées we have cooking. Braised, grilled, slow-roasted...any way you like it, we will have it. Just take a look at the specials menu when you come in for your next dinner.
Wines at The Waterfront Depot
We have a new wine menu curated by Bryan. Though we are known for our cocktail menu, our wine selection is just as discerning and chosen to pair perfectly with our cuisine. Did you know you can purchase wines by the glass or by the bottle? Our wine menu is always evolving, and we are creating a unique wine experience you cannot purchase at your grocery store.

Nothin' But Net was designed and brewed during March madness with our former cellarman Erik Salmi, now at Bad Habit Brewing in Minnesota. Together, we messed around 'n brewed a triple double, freaking hopheads every way with a duo of American Mosaic and Azacca hops in the kettle and a trifecta of Southern Hemisphere Galaxy, Motueka, and Nelson Sauvin in the dry hop. The result? A beer with serious hops, assisted by a grist base of Golden Promise, malted oats, and flaked wheat. Bursting with hop character baseline to baseline, Nothin' But Net is smooth in transition, finishing with the soft touch of a pure shooter. - 7% abv

Every day's a new opportunity for true Pacific Northwest culinary adventure. What you do know is, the Grilled Sea Scallops are sure to satisfy you through and through.
Braised Lamb Shank
In a word, amazing! The lamb is so tender you just need a fork. Prepared Osso Buco style in our slow cooker with mushrooms, vegetables, tomatoes and red wine, our lamb is served with Yukon mash potatoes and a side house salad. The Wine reduction sauce is intensely flavored and perfect for the potatoes.
Try Something Different: The Cajun Fish Burger
The Cajun Fish Burger is fresh cod seasoned with bold Cajun spices and fried to a perfect crispy shell leaving a tender flaky inside that melts in your mouth. Paired with our perfectly cooked fries, it’s an extraordinary treat. Enjoy this meal with an Amber Lager, and you have a most satisfying dinner after a long day.
Chimichurri Beef and Sweet Potato Fries
Stop in and enjoy our marinated flat-iron steak lightly grilled with corn and black beans. We top it with fresh, perfectly made Sweet Potato Fries and sauce it with Argentinian Chimichurri for a spicy finish. This dish has been a surprise hit for us, enjoying over a year of popularity. We're glad to keep it on the menu.
