This is our must-stop place for breakfast whenever we're in Yachats. My wife has the eggs benedict, and I can never pass up the bacon and cheddar omelet. We're never disappointed. Always great food and great service, and a clean and pleasant atmosphere. We've never been here for dinner, but I can definitely recommend it highly for breakfast.

Right next door to Ocean Cove Inn, where we stayed, this place provides varied, excellent breakfast starting at 8am. Friendly and prompt service and very acceptable prices.

We stopped here for breakfast while camping at the KOA in Waldport. The waitress was very friendly and welcoming. The little gift shop was fun. The décor had us looking all around with great decorating ideas. And...the food was wonderfully delicious!! We shared the crab omelet. It must have had a whole crab inside. It was so fresh and good.... More

Was looking for a nice atmosphere to spend an evening with my girlfriend and was glad to stumble across this place. Great service from the staff, and the crab crusted halibut with soup was very tasty. Had a great Moscow Mule, served in the necessary copper cup. Appreciated that. Also enjoyed the music. Not so loud that my girl and... More

My boyfriend and I were drawn to the place by live music and food, and while one hit it out of the park the other.....not so much. We were there on a Saturday night and of course, with the band playing, the establishment was pretty crowded. We didn't wait very long for a table so no problem there. Once seated,... More

A friend who lives in Yachats part time recommended The Drift Inn for a birthday gathering. Very friendly and helpful service people. Attentive, playful, good sense of humor. Ribeye and Prawns special in pineapple salsa, grilled salmon and blackberry sauce, crab-encrusted halibut, dungeness crab cakes. No one was disappointed. They had a live band playing some lovely music. Salads were... More

I had a spicy sausage pasta which had good flavor. Was a little TOO spicy but that was my fault, not theirs. My friend had the razor clams which she enjoyed. I ordered a Marionberry Daquiri which was good but needed a little sweetening. Wonderful guitar player in and lots of umbrellas and mermaids!

Really delicious food for Sunday brunch time. Friendly servers. Gorgeous pendant lighting made by a coastal glass blower artist. Unique items in gift shop. Would definitely return in the future.
