Driftwood Restaurant and Lounge at Cannon Beach Oregon has the best prawn dinner and homemade clam chowder. Service was out standing and so was the food. Prices were average and servings large. My husband's steak dinner was perfect. Cooked as requested and very tender. They have lunch and dinner and a bar. I loved the prawns, not too heavy of... More

We had pretty good service at first, they brewed fresh coffee for us, but never asked us if we wanted a refill. The food was okay. Once we got our food they kind of forgot about us, it took almost half an hour after finishing our meal to get our bill - the waiter was chatting with his friends the... More

I would recommend the bread bowl filled with clam chowder. It's so delicious and I still remember it. The bowl is perfectly baked to a crispy outside shell and the chowder is fantastic! Go here if you're cruising through and looking for a place to eat.

We went to the Driftwood Inn Restaurant on Sunday, January 18th at around 3:30 in the afternoon. We were seated and then.......... Yep, that was it. There were only four other couples in the restaurant. One was done and just sitting there with their bill and the others were all eating. Four different waiters or staff kept walking part us...

A quiet January afternoon, this restaurant was nearly empty for a late lunch. The decor is somewhat dark and dated - an sixties lounge type of feeling, generally not a sunny and beachy atmosphere. There is a sizable patio for the warmer days of summer. But, it was clean and the service was very prompt and cheerful. We ordered a... More

This is the first restaurant we go to when we're in Cannon Beach! Love the food, love the service and the prices are fair. Very relaxing and laid-back. You shouldn't miss this wonderful restaurant.

I went there with two friends, one very particular about her food. We all found something to order and enjoyed our meals very much.

Our server (Lindy) was excellent and our lunch meals were very good. My husband's burger/fries were very good and my BLT with coleslaw also tasty. We would return to the Driftwood.

We were checking out Cannon Beach in December where it is quite obviously the off-season and found a lot of the restaurants closed for the season. We did see the welcoming “OPEN” sign displayed here at the Driftwood Inn and Restaurant though. We also noticed the outdoor gas fire flames coming up through the rocks in their outdoor fire pit...
