We ate both lunch and dinner at The Driftwood during our stay in Cannon Beach. Good food at reasonable prices. A lot of locals frequent the restaurant so you know it is good. Fabulous outside seating where you can eat and have your dog seated with you. They even bring water bowls for your furry friend. Always visit when we... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night and had a great meal. Their special was prime rib with prawns and it was delicious. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and the prawns were in a butter sauce with diced vegetables. The background music was unobtrusive and the atmosphere was quiet. They have a large outdoor deck for... More

We stopped for a quick lunch. They served some of the best clam chowder we have ever had. Also had the fish and chips which were perfectly breaded and not over cooked. We didn't eat a full meal, but what we had was very satisfying.

We drove by & decided to go in. Very nice atmosphere, pleasant greeting, nice table. I ordered a Corona w/lime - got the beer, no lime; asked for lime and got it half way through the beer. Hubby got the worst Bloody Mary in 40 years, sent it back for flavor and only got more pepper. The manager did take... More

We love The Driftwood! It's a fun "local's" hang w/ a friendly staff. The food is great and served late, the bar & cocktails are even better, and our favorite... the fire feature on the deck, rain or shine!

We arrived on a beautiful sunny late afternoon for an early dinner before hitting the road again. The outside deck was pretty full so we chose to dine in the bar lounge. Lucky for us it was happy hour so we settled in. The food was lovely. I had deep fried oysters and the crab cocktail (always prefer 2 starters)... More

We have eaten here three times this week for dinner, and never been disappointed. I'm a fan of clam chowder, and theirs is in the top three of my favourites. The best dinner was their ribs, amazingly tender, fall off the bone, full of flavour, served with extra barbecue sauce. The best value was Sunday night's Prime Rib and Prawns... More
