I love the seafood lasagne. Great atmosphere, but when music is being played it can be a bit loud if you want to socialize

My wife and I were staying in a small beach front cabin just south of Yachats and the owner suggested the Drift In as a place to eat in the area. Additionally, we were in the visitor information centre in Florence and the guy there recommended the Drift In for dinner. With two recommendations we decided to give it a... More

We went here for a Friday night dinner on my annual girl's weekend in Yachats. The restaurant is way cute, with beautiful umbrellas hung all over the ceiling. As usual, it was crowded, but our group of 6 got a table right away at 6 pm. Music started at 6:30- it was nice, toe-tapping oldies, but it did preclude much... More

Very busy little place which does brilliant halibut and chips but be warned if they have live music you will need your ear plugs! The band playing when we were there had a female singer who was actually quite good but it was ruined by very poor sound control and although we were furthest from the band we found it... More

We visited this restaurant our second time to the coast this year. We met some friends there and as a nice gift they paid for our dinner. If they had not offered to pay we would have ordered a drink and left. The food was great, and the service was great, but the prices were outrageous. For what we got... More

We travel to yachats each summer and this was the first time we tried the Drift Inn. It had a very good, varied menu and live music. It was very crowded on a Saturday night so service was slow but the food was very good.

We stopped in here for lunch and found the food to be pretty good, but our server was inattentive and generally absent. It took us 15 minutes just to get his attention for something and the place wasn't even busy. The food is good, but not outstanding. A bit under-seasoned in general, although the diced potatoes and waffles were excellent.... More

My son and I had lunch today. It was packed and the service was great. The owner or manager checked in at each table. The wild salmon was cooked personally and I couldn't help but steal a piece of my son's great cheese pizza. We had the best seat in the house with a view of the surf. I highly... More

We read reviews stating that The Drift Inn had great food so we wanted to try it out. We waited 15 minutes before anyone showed up to put our names down on the waiting list to be seated. 30 minutes later we were seated only to get the worst waitress we have ever had. She took our orders, brought out... More
