The place was packed, even early in the evening because of the Celtic Music Festival. There was live music which made it difficult to hear my dinner companions. Many of the entrees were sold out, even early in the evening. The food was average, nothing special. Service was good.

We have had lunch here several times while driving down the Oregon coast. The food has always been excellent and the service friendly. Lots of gluten free and vegetarian options for those that want them. I love the crab quesadillas when crab is in season. Good chicken tacos and chicken mole enchiladas. The ginger vinaigrette salad dressing is yummy. It's... More

I liked this place. The food was pretty good. I had salmon which was pretty good. It was reasonably priced. There was very enjoyable live music. Our server was very sweet. It has a very good vibe.

We had a great lunch at this historic spot. The menu is one of the best in tiny Yachats, with something for everyone. The Mole Enchiladas were top notch and my son enjoyed the monster burger and fries. You get a real sense of coastal life in this eatery. We also got take out for dinner which was also very... More

We visited the Drift Inn in Yachats for dinner, and were totally taken in by the good food, comfortable ambiance and excellent service. We enjoyed it so much we went back for breakfast the next day, and were equally impressed. The calamari appetizer was one of the most tender I've ever had, and the King Salmon with marionberry and hazelnut... More

What a cool place to stop...the color, the surprises hanging from the ceiling, the warmth of the wood all around and a great history to boot! We had the flank steak and all the fixins, hot, fresh and great service! Really... you need to stop and see the colorful surprises on the ceiling and have lunch or dinner!

The food and atmosphere here is what makes it a lot of fun. In the evenings there is music from visiting musisians who provide an eclectic variety of musical styles.
