Service was engaging and good. The deck was active and pet friendly which added to the appeal of this place. I would recommend this if you travel to Cannon Beach it has something... More

Visited for dinner after 8pm on a Friday night and was able to get in with no waiting by sitting in the lounge area. Excellent service and the drinks were great. Definitely not gourmet food but tasty and filling!

We had lunch outdoors on the patio. It was rather cool, but the staff supplied some folks with blankets. The food was great and staff very attentive. A fun place to eat.

Got reservations, and needed them..busy place..it was really hot inside, so we both kept our menus and fanned ourselves the whole time..the rib steak sandwich was ok, but a bit more tough than I would have liked...clam chowder was not the best we had on the coast. Will probably not go there next time.

We had an option on seating but chose the bar for an alternative as we were 'kid free'. Yay. A very decent selection of beer on offer! We ordered - Oyster shooters - huge. Delicious. Don't believe the sarcastic 'extra small' on the menu. They are HUGE! Tempura Prawns - tasty with proper batter Lobster Roll - great crusty bread... More

We walked around Cannon Beach later at night, about 8 pm and happened upon the Diriftwood. The laughter of the guests in the outside seating attracted us and we were not disappointed. We were seated outside as the inside was full. I am glad as we sat at a table with a fire going in the middle which helped with... More

This was our second trip to Cannon Beach and we had seen this restaurant along the main street on our first visit and decided to eat here this time. We were seated right away in the lounge area. Lots of dark wood with a pub feel. We ordered the prawns and they were crunchy on the outside, tender on the... More
