Food was a hot and miss. The chowder was delicious. The kids menu could be improved. I recommend adding some fruit or vegetables. Also, their kids buttered noodles were bland and terrible. The bread that comes with it was extremely greasy. I ordered a drink that was way too strong. Waiter said he would just add more juice to it.... More

Long wait, popular place, and one of the few open a bit later. Good menu, reasonable prices. We sat at a table, but in the bar area, which was a bit loud. I recall being irritated about one loudmouth in particular. To be fair, the management had asked us if we would like to wait longer for a table in... More

We saw this place reviewed in a "best clam chowders" article, and since it was one of the few we hadn't ever tried, off we went. This place is really old, but fairly clean, and the service was fine. However, the food is all just average, but at least it seems to be fresh, local seafood. That would be the... More

Good food, good people watching and a great outdoor fireplace - inside nothing special, but great people watching outside - everyone very friendly.

Exceptional food and friendly service. This is our new favorite spot in Canyon Beach. I highly recommend the crab cocktail.

The food was not bad and the service was ok, if a bit slow. But for fairly simple and bland food, and a limited menu for something unique, I was floored to pay almost $100 for two adults and a kid (appetizer, sodas, meals and salads). It's just not worth the expense. Try someplace else. The hummus appetizer FAR outshone... More

Good lunch. We did not have anything that really required much skill to make, but it was good nonetheless (cobb, chowder, and kids meals). Our waiter was great! Was a bit on the spend side, but that was mainly due to our bloody Mary's, which are worth it.

This was our first time driving the Oregon coast. We came upon Cannon Beach just when we needed lunch. The Driftwood happened to be where we parked. The waitress was was nice and efficient. I had the green salad and clam chowder both fine for a quick lunch. My husband's burger was fine with a large helping of coleslaw. Wish... More

Had a lovely dinner and the following day lunch. Pretty good food - Dungeness crab cocktail was good as well as the Dungeness roll. Service was excellent and attentive. Overall good food that is reasonably priced. Nice bar too!
