“Good seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We had a tasty lunch at the Driftwood Restaurant. The clam chowder was steaming & delicious. I had Fish & Chips, husband had an oyster sandwich, both were good. Quick service too. Great stop for lunch.

“Great Food & Great People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Our first evening in the Cannon Beach area we weren’t sure where to have dinner. Drove past the Driftwood and noticed they great deck out front. We went in to have a cocktail and look at the menu and really lucked out. Not only did the bartender make fantastic cocktails, but when we asked our waitress what she recommended, she did not steer us wrong. The clam chowder was so good that we went back the next day to have it again…Yum!

“Nice Place, Good Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Dropped in at Happy Hour. Not very busy on a Tuesday evening after Labor Day weekend. Decided to have a beverage and went to the bar. The bartender was also the table waitress and she was very engaging and helpful. She actually stopped by a couple of times to be certain we were happy with our drinks and each time she was very pleasant.
The Happy Hour menu looked great and even though we only had drinks the service was excellent and we will definitely visit again.

We had lunch at the Driftwood Inn on 9/6/12. The New England Clam Chowder is very good! The service was great.

“Great Seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We tried this restaurant upon recommendation by one of the locals. Although reservations are recommended we took the chance without one and had about a five minute wait..but we beat the rush because others packed the small waiting area soon after. The decor was a bit "tired" looking and there was a lot of hustle and bustle going on which didn't present a very relaxing atmosphere.
My husband had the halibut and I had their salmon, both of which were amazing. Good selection of local wines.
