We were staying at the (highly recommended) Ambrosia Gardens B&B not far from town, so we stopped in The Drift Inn for some dinner on a Tuesday night. There was live entertainment and quite a full house. We ordered some gluten-free burgers, which were quite good as far as gluten-free is concerned. The waiter was very attentive and we got... More

Based on reviews we read, we ate dinner here on our recent vacation. We both ordered the salmon with a berry/nut sauce. I asked the waiter which berry and which nut was used and he said blackberry and hazelnut, which sounded good because I make a blackberry sauce for salmon at home. I asked what the vegetable was and was... More

Great food, great service, a lovely gathering spot for locals, travelers, families and friends. Our seafood could not be fresher and the drinks and desserts were delicious. Highly recommend this eatery!

Entertainment every night. Amazing fresh seafood. Treated us like family. Try the fish stew or the chowder!

A spa staffer at our lodge recommended the restaurant saying it's where all the locals go. We were glad we followed up because we had a really fun time listening to a live performer who played country ballads and talked easily to diners. After waiting about 20 minutes for a table ( busy Monday night) we ordered shrimp appetizers and... More

Very busy on our visit, we stayed overnight for one night only and this was closest eating place. Staff member kept a list of people as they arrived to seat as soon as possible so they did their best. The food was only average but adequate i had halibut rubbery shrubbery and my husband had some other fish with fries,... More

Food was ok, ran out of clam chowder--substituted corn chowder -- filled with jalapeños with no advance warning. Came on a night when they didn't expect the crowd -- the staff did all they could. All were friendly and worked like mad -- kitchen couldn't keep up. My wife's crab appetizer arrived before mine and mine (crab cakes) finally arrived... More

We lived everything about this place from the moment we walked in. The live music added to the atmosphere already created by the intriguing interior (love the umbrellas and glass lamp shades!). My Tijuana Taxi cocktail was delicious, as was the chicken Pad Thai and chocolate run mousse. Would definitely recommend and am only sorry we couldn't go again!

It's an icon of the 1970s, a place where old hippies hang out with tourists and upscale shoppers, where the music is handmade by local talent and the food is large portions of nice combinations of familiar comfort and international tastes. Good, friendly people really want you to enjoy your visit... well worth it!
