3rd time there! Great as usual.

My husband and I go down to Cannon Beach a few times a year from Seattle. We've always had great experiences eating and having drinks at Driftwood, and this time was no exception.

What this is very family friendly diner lacks in ambiance, it makes up in service. We were here for lunch on a sunny by cool early spring day. Outdoors has a nice fire pit, indoors is simply but comfy. The chowder is great, as is the cream of spinach, and a glass of one of their many west coast wines... More

We blew into Cannon Beach last Sunday on a stormy afternoon and after a long day of driving and I was ready for an adult beverage. The Driftwood looked inviting so we popped in and found a classic restaurant and lounge. We sat at the bar and Clarissa greeted us warmly and prepared and excellent Stoli Martini for me and... More

Prices a bit spendy - Had a great crab cocktail, but the halibut was a bit over done (the sauce was delicious and saved the dinner) Overall the value here was not as great as at other establishments.

After hitting the shops and galleries it's nice to come in here and unwind. It was a rainy Saturday afternoon and the bar was full, so we shared a table with another couple. We ordered beers, chowder, razor clams and oysters. All were delicious. The service and the atmosphere is cozy and friendly. We've never eaten in the restaurant, but... More

This was the best clam chowder I've had. The HOT sourdough bread we ordered on the side was also amazing--sweet, soft, and a crust like a croissant.

My friends and I highly recommend this restaurant. The food was wonderful, service impeccable. The manager,Kyle made sure everyone was taken care of. His whole staff did an excellent job. A definite must when visiting Cannon Beach.

It was OK...not the great steak I had anticipated. The night we were there, they had too many staffers jammed into an already tight quartered entryway...the service was good, if a bit hovering but I got the impression that because it wasn't busy, they needed to check on the few customers there, more often. I have absolutely no complaints on... More

We ordered the filet mignon and ribeye and both were fantastic. Full of flavor and cooked to perfection. I was very impressed by their chef and how they cooked the steaks. Loved the good life ale. Yummy. Would come again just for the steaks!

We ended up sitting in the lounge which was fun. Restaurant was full when we arrived. Our server was amazing. Very attentive but not over the top. Food was good. Nothing amazing but good. We both had the steak sandwich. My husband had the wedge salad which he said was great. We shared a piece of walnut chocolate brownie and... More
