Regular stop for us!

Every time we come to Cannon Beach, we grab a bite at Driftwood. Very friendly atmosphere, great drinks, and overall good food.

This was our first and our last time eating at Driftwood. I highly recommend drinking alcohol to get the sickening, nauseating, food down. We were drawn to the restaurant out of hunger and curiosity. We were seated fairly quickly and the menu looked promising. First, our water was served in dirty glasses, there was stuff floating in the water. Second,... More

Decent meal, but nothing you'd go crazy over. We were in town for our anniversary and missed our reservation at another restaurant, so were trying to find something suitable. It was packed on a rainy Friday night in the Winter (so remember to get on the list!). The service was excellent - polite, friendly, frequent but not annoying. The steak... More

Had the lobster roll and the clam chowder which was fantastic and ate on the sunny patio! Some of the food is a bit overpriced but what do you really expect in a tourist destination like cannon beach. I felt a bit too rushed by the wait staff but all in all a beautiful and tasty meal and I'd definitely... More

We had filet steak and sauteed Präsens, which were both very well prepared. Nothing to complain about. Driftwoods can be recommended and we... More

Waiter recommended what we should eat (a crab melt) and it was just okay. Soup could have been better. Good prices.

Whenever we go there we have to have the chowder and onion rings. They do serve other dishes, and they are good, too, but we love the not-so-wonderfully-healthy choise of chowder and rings. Hey, it's only one in a while!

Between Kyle the manager, Nancy our server, and Santiago, we had the nicest friendliest yummy family dinner. We were warmly greeted and sat immediately at our favorite table by the window. Nancy took our orders for drinks within a minute and within a short time we had our meals. Great friendly service and good food, the best place to take... More

We were in town for a family getaway and after being told how much 2 dozen donuts would cost, I needed a drink,lol. The beer was cokd, the people friendly and the outdoor fireplace was great.
