Gluten free options!

We were delighted to find this restaurant in Yachats this past weekend! Not only does it have a great past and character, but the food was great! I have Celiac Disease and need to be gluten free. I was so excited to see all the options there were on the menu! I wanted to try everything, but that... read more

Made a pit stop here for lunch passing through town. Was pleasantly surprised that their decor had some personality to it: upside down umbrellas hanging from the ceiling, wall art and painting... Food was ordinary. Service was ok.

The Drift Inn has a great history which you can read about as you wait for your food and beverage order to arrive. One owner was a real character! The Inn has a diversified menu and as far as we could tell, everything is delicious. The bar in the restaurant is beautiful and the whole place is very interestingly decorated.... More

We are fairly local and have only recently discovered this wonderful dining gem! We have been here several times and have never had any dish that was less than superb! Service is also good and has a fun, eclectic atmosphere. We will be back many times!

Couldn't make our reservation at Tidal Raves in Depoe Bay due to terrible driving conditions. So went back to our favorite Yachats standby Drift Inn. This place is always warm, friendly, with a diverse menu, positive, cheery, competent staff and whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, a portion of food that will never let you leave hungry. Can't go wrong... More

The Drift Inn was fabulous. It's good sized and cozy with a local feel. The service was quick and the food was great! The fish and chips(halibut) were the best we've had all along the coast during our trip and that's only scratching the surface. The food had the feel of a top notch chef with great presentation and the... More

During a two-night stop on our drive along the Oregon coast, we had dinner at the Drift Inn on January 2, 2016; we enjoyed it so much we decided to return the following night. The place had live music both nights; the band Saturday night was better but both were good. Recommended dishes are the fish and chips, burgers, crepes,... More

We have been in to the Drift Inn a few times. They are a "local hangout". Unfortunately, the food is not very good. The service is nice, but like I said, after three times of spending a lot of money on food that is really over priced and not prepared correctly, we won't go back. There are better places in...
