The first night, we were turned away by the long wait. They only have 12 tables that they can sit families with kids (all others are in the bar). We came back the second night around 4:30 and put our name on the hour and a half wait list. We shopped around and then ate. Well worth the wait! The... More

Enjoyed lunch and drinks on a Friday afternoon. We were greeted promptly and with a smile. The wait staff were very cheery and helpful. The veggie burger was acceptable and the tempura mushroom were delicious. I was most impressed with the mixed green salad. Crisp and fresh lettuces, grape tomatoes, olives and carrot slices. Nice place.

Seeing that it is in the center of Cannon Beach, I would change many things in this dated resto. A little facelift would bring better appeal on the inside, however the outside terrace looks very inviting. The food was ok, it wasn't great and could have been. Super nice people there but the food and interior decor would need a... More

This place has a very friendly feel with good food and drink. There is an inviting outside deck with a small fire pit that looked like it would be perfect for chilly nights. The wait staff was attentive but the place is loud, not the restaurant's fault but an important factor anyway.

We visited friends and went to the touristy town of Cannon Beach. They took us to Driftwood Inn Restaurant. The place was quite crowded. Eventually, we got a table. The food was good; the clam chowder was excellent. Service was good, considering the crowd, The servers were friendly. When our friends ask for boxes to go, the server was prompt... More

My son and I dined here for dinner. My son had the New York steak dinner (it came with a bowl of clam chowder, baked potato, and sour dough garlic bread - mmmm!) I had a shrimp louie salad. Our dinner was delicious. The restaurant staff was friendly.

Cannon Beach could use some really good restaurants. This one is average for its price. The wait staff is very friendly and works hard.

We went there on a busy Sunday, and were able to get outside seating within ten minutes, which is good, for anywhere in Cannon Beach, on a summer weekend. The service was great, our guy is mane is Brad. He was professional, and very courteous. The food was really good, get the crab casserole!
