Superb seafood

Liked everything, disliked nothing. More than satisfied with our menu selections, and even our dessert was exceptionally good. Don't be fooled by the appearance of the exterior, this restaurant is top-notch. If you dine in Yachats for only one night, make sure it's here.

The Drift Inn was our preferred place to visit in Yachats. Many wonderful meals have been served to us through out the years. It’s lively atmosphere, good food, efficient crew are some of the reasons we keep coming back. A restaurant open for breakfast & into the evening is not easy to find in Yachats. You get a small glimpse... More

This restaurant is very eclectic and has a great atmosphere. There was live music while we were there (a Hawaiian gentleman singing and playing ukelele). The server made good recommendations, and the food was great. I had the steamer clams appetizer and they were excellent. My steak was also well prepared and delicious. Definitely will go here again when in... More

After waiting 20 minutes to get served, asking people to help, AND seeing others order and get food, we walked out. Waitress was complaining and snobby. Worst service we have ever had. Don't go here

Food is ok and nice view. Had a good breakfast. I made the mistake of ordering their razor clams (their specialty?) and they were the worst.

Stopped in for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the interesting interior and history of the restaurant (included among the menu pages). This place has a colorful past to say the least and has been around for decades. The food was quite yummy...we tried crab quesadilla and The Artist which was baked eggplant on polenta. Service was amazingly... More

I was at the beach with my poker group and we went to The Drift Inn for breakfast and everyone was very happy with their meal. The food was good and the service was friendly and professional. Worth stopping at if you are in the area and want breakfast. Not the least expensive place around but the prices are not... More

After I committed to my meal I realized that there was a combo playing on the stage. They were setting up while I had sat down. It was SO loud in there I could barely hear the waitress talking to me. I didn't enjoy my food because I couldn't wait to get out of there. I went across the street... More
