This restaurant is very busy. The waiting area is very small. We were ran over by several people leaving the restaurant and lounge while waiting for our table They do have a nice outdoor seating area with Fire pit, but can only be used by adults. We had a small child with us. This would have been a great place... More

Have lunched at The Driftwood several times over the years outdoors and indoors. Each visit has held forth at least one excellent and one mediocre or borderline unacceptable element of the meal to be consumed. Service has been equally similar to the varying quality of the food ranging from stellar to borderline rude. On a good day with nice weather... More

Thank you for your feedback! While we'd like to hold on to the 'excellent' and 'stellar' elements, we'd be remiss if we ignore your other comments. Please make us aware during your next visit if we deliver anything borderline or mediocre--whether the element is service, or your meal--we would appreciate the opportunity to rise to the upper range for you!...

Driftwood is in a nice location in downtown Cannon Beach. It is nice because it is open everyday not closed down part of the week. Like many others it is very seafood oriented. My wife and I were there for lunch she had a BLT and it was excellent I had a grilled cheese and it was good. They like... More

Ate here on a Saturday afternoon around 2:00 and the restaurant was packed. We had our dog with us so we're able to sit outside on the patio. Probably 10 tables and four of those had well-mannered dogs and owners. We ordered fish and chips and a steak sandwich that was fantastic. Food was delivered pretty fast. Wait staff was... More

We visited on April 12 2017 for supper. My wife had the seafood stew I had the Crab Casserole. My meal came with clam chowder which was tasty but too small I wanted more. My wife's meal came with ceasar salad, it was very flavourful. Her Stew was the 3rd best she has ever had.. that's saying something. My dish... More

Hi DVD1961, thank you for such a thorough, helpful review! We are honored to rank so highly with your wife's palate, and glad you enjoyed your visit. It is a shame that what is good for our souls is not so good for our cholesterol! Admittedly rich, our crab casserole is one of our claims to fame, though we have... More

Loved the location of in the center of town and the best part was the deck outside with the fire pit. We didn't sit at the table with the fire pit but watching strangers come together and have a great time was amazing. The staff was very friendly and knownledgeable and the deck was pet friendly.

Ate dinner here last night. I had the steak salad featuring ribeye and New York steak with a homemade blue cheese dressing. It was a outstanding salad.
