The restaurant was very nice. It was packed (Saturday night), so we didn't get an outside table, but the inside was fine. The mushroom appetizer was yummy (but super hot! couldn't eat it for several minutes). The filet mignon was missing something. It's the first filet I've ever had that I had to add salt to! It was cooked fine,... More

We went here for dinner on our last evening in Cannon Beach. The restaurant had good reviews and we were looking for fresh fish. Although busy, we were seating fairly quickly and given menus. The waitress appeared over worked and disinterested in our presence. It was only 7 pm. They had fresh local salmon so we both ordered the dinner... More

From the name. I thought this would be a good place I Ordered the fried prawns. The batter was like Long John Silvers where the seafood is lost in the batter I was not pleased that potato was good however and the bread used for the Garlic toast was very chewy. I was not impressed with the waitress however the... More

I had the worst chowder in my life there. Tasted watered down, and straight out of a soup can. Service was awful...

We stopped for a quick lunch and enjoyed our lunch. I think this is a better dinner place for a full meal, with great selections of steak and seafood. I would recommend it for a nice dinner.

It's always difficult to set the standard in an oceanfront town. The Driftwood seems to handle the heavy lifting in this area and seats an admirable amount of people in a reasonable amount of time. Our steak was absolutely perfect and everything else was tasty. This is a great visit for someone making an introduction into the cannon beach scene.... More

My girlfriend took me here for a steak dinner and boy was it good. Cooked to perfection and she had the ribs and they were delicious too! Excellent service and we got there just in time to get seated right away as it got very busy and there was a bit of a wait. Highly recommended by this reviewer.

We recently had lunch on the outdoor deck. What a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The food was solid. We had the dungeoness crab melt and chicken burger. Fine, not exceptional. What made this dog-friendly place a stand out for us, though was the friendly atmosphere. Great spot for grabbing a bite and people watching. Service was attentive.

We ate here this last week-end and it was great. The place was opened in 1944 and so it isn't a trendy, modern restaurant but one that looks like it's 70 years old but very clean. The service was fast and personable. My husband had really good coleslaw (like the kind you get at KFC) and an open faced English... More
