We stopped in twice for an early dinner. We had the Halibut Tacos & Halibut Fish & Chips, both really good.

We ate here the end of June and had beer and nachos. It was at night, they had music. The place was packed. The nachos were flavorful ($11) and a decent size portion. We returned in mid-July. We had Dungeness Crab Quesadilla ($16) and Halibut Fish and Fries ($15). The halibut was way overcooked. The fries had great seasoning and... More

As someone who has been visiting Yachats and the Drift Inn for years, I have to say that I'm a little saddened by the state that it was in during my last visit. The decor is still fine and very coasty. The service was fine, nothing to write home about. I think the the hardest thing about returning to the... More

This isn't the first time we've been to The Drift Inn and it won't be the last! Very nicely done inside, clean and tidy, full bar if you like and walking distance to most motels and the shoreline. We've had fresh seafood, burrito's, burgers... I don't believe you can go wrong with whatever you have a hunger for, service is... More

Interesting & varied menu. Among brunch choices of black bean huevos rancheros, spinach & feta frittata, and veggie scramble, we opted for the frittata with homemade wheat toast. We were delighted. Can't wait to go back and try their pizzas or their crab quesadillas.

At the Drift Inn we had the best food of our few days on the Oregon coast. We went there after hiking the John Dellenback trail (highly recommended), for lunch. I had the crepes which were very good and wanted to come back there for another meal. Unfortunately, that didn't happen :-(

We went for breakfast and ordered the french toast made with homemade bread and served with a homemade marionberry compote which was so yummy. We also went for dinner, my husband had scallops and I had halibut with a sorrel sauce (that wasn't flooded )and both were outstanding. I consider myself a foodie and I was surprised that everything was... More

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