Town central.

Located smack dab in center of town, grab a table on the deck if available (weather permitting). Nice variety of menu options, steaks are wonderful. Newer item, Maine Lobster Roll, had much more bell pepper than lobster and taste was disappointing.

Absolutely terrific food. We ordered takeout in order to eat on our deck at the hotel overlooking the beach. From the person who took our order over the phone to pick-up, they were so nice. The food was scrumptious and the restaurant was crowded every time we drove by.

My husband really enjoyed his burger and we LOVED the wings! I did not care for my garden salad or clam chowder (too watered down, disappointing). Next time I'll get a burger.

We ate here three times in the 3 days we were in Cannon Beach. It's that good! And the people were awesome. It felt like visiting old friends when we went back for the second time, and even more so the third time. The menu is varied; you can choose from a perfectly prepared steak, salad and chowder, pasta, seafood...everything... More

This place always seems busy and we were excited to try their food. We spend a few days at Cannon each summer, but rarely eat out. Maybe our expectations were high, but we were totally disappointed by the quality of the food and the service. The chowder was really gritty and my husband said his burger was worse than a... More

My husband and I had dinner on our way through on a Wednesday evening. Didn't have to wait, as others have mentioned. Sat at the community table on the patio with the fire place in the middle. It was an interesting and social experience. We both had the fish and chips which was good. Batter was light - not too... More

My husband and I have been eating at the Driftwood Inn for years. Each time we visit Cannon Beach we return. The food is really good and reasonably priced. We especially like the dill baked halibut. Their clam chowder is delicious, as well. I highly recommend this restaurant. They do not take reservations, but you can call ahead and put... More

Excellent restaurant. My son and husband had the rib eye steak which he said was great, I had wild caught salmon in a dill sauce that was phenomenal. Prices were around $25.00 with salad and sides. It was our "nice dinner" out. I would definitely recommend. Waitress was very friendly and added to the experience!
