Awesome clam chowder!

The clam chowder is amazing! Some of the best I've ever had! The meal was good, but a bit overpriced for the portion size. The atmosphere lends itself more to groups of friends relaxing in the evening, than a quiet romantic restaurant.

Driftwood Inn is a great place to gather for eats or drinks. The Patio has a great fire pit enclosed in glass and the other tables on the patio offer heat from above to keep you warm on those cool evenings. There is inside seating as well, but the outside seating offered a great place to people watch and enjoy... More

Perfect place for family dinner. You can choose between the patio and indoor tables. I was inside because it was slightly cold outside for my kids, but it might be better to take a patio table for romantic dinner :) Everybody was very friendly and waitress provided a real help with menu. My wife got a decent Rib Eye, and... More

this place is pretty good, and perhaps I should rate it a 4; I would go again. We ate outside, with dogs (nice of them) and I had a reasonably priced $7 grilled cheese sandwich and a nice draft beer. The onion rings were spectacular.

It was a very busy Mother's day weekend, but at 2 PM it took 40 minutes to be served. The location was right on the main street which was fun for people watching.

We stopped in for dinner on Memorial Day and had a GREAT time! All of the staff was very friendly and engaging. The service and food was outstanding. We sat in the bar because it was a little chilly outside and ended up having a great time with other diners as well. Of the whole weekend this was by far... More

Can't go wrong stopping in at the Driftwood. Nothing special with American style food. Service was excellent, staying on top of the drinks and very knowledgeable of the area. Alcoholic drinks were unique and delicious.

Perfect Dinner for 2! We didn't have a reservation but arrived early enough to sneak in for dinner. Really nice staff and a clean place. I had the Crab and Steak Special that was cooked to perfection and my DH had the Seafod Stew that he thought was some of the best he'd ever had. Oh and the chowder was... More

We've come to Cannon Beach for four years for Memorial Day and to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This was our first meal here and we have to say it was very good. There was a wait for a table, but we hung out at the bar and had good service. Dinner was excellent. I had crab legs, my husband had... More
