Part of the Driftwood Shores Resort, this restaurant has the only view of the ocean in Florence. It sits right on a sandy beach with large picture windows offering a great view. As a local I frequent this place for it's romance, especially watching the sunset on the ocean over dinner. Food is very good but not a particular draw in itself. Service is excellent. There is a glass enclosed wine cellar visible as you enter for those who appreciate wine. Reservations might be needed for dinner, especially on weekends or during the summer season. Note that this place is off the beaten path being some 3 miles off Highway 101 and far apart from the other tourist accommodations in Florence.
