Bit of a wait to get in but were happy we waited. Fairly extensive menu with lots of options. We had a pizza, it was okay, on refection there were likely better choices. Really nice decor and ambiance though and the live music was nice. Service was good. Prices were average. We'll go back to try some other things.

My family has been visiting Yachats for 12 years and eaten at the Drift Inn numerous times. My husband and I were there in August and ate at the Drift Inn three times. The food is always good and the service is outstanding. We enjoy the live music at night.

They have live music every night of the week. We have never been disappointed with the music or the food. We usually have to wait to get a table but well worth the wait. The menu offers something for everyone. There is even fresh pizza cooked in their wood burning ovens outside. They offer outdoor seating on the patio in... More

Razor clams were crispy and buttery. Couldn't have been better if I'd made them myself. Several tables were waiting for their checks, and the waitress was in the room but not paying attention. A bit of a crabby edge (and I'm not talking edible). Not sure why, because they weren't real busy, but it was frustrating. One patron got up... More

We liked the food well enough to come twice in our 4 day stay in Yachats. Comfortable and friendly atmosphere and yummy food. We both enjoyed the crab melt the first time, and the fries were delicious too. The 2nd time I had the cobb salad... it was the best Ive ever had. Generous with the fresh bacon on it... More

We had dinner and breakfast during our stay in Yachats! Everything from the food, drinks and service were great. Enjoyed the musical entertainment. Would recommend the seafood chowder and probably anything else on the menu as everything we ate was really good. Even the Mexican dishes were good. Nice little place with rooms for rent too. Nice atmosphere. Can't wait... More

An artists’ retreat within an artists’ retreat, visitors to the Drift Inn should not make the mistake of presuming they are entering a restaurant. You’re entering a palace of the weird, where your server is not there to serve, your order bears little resemblance to what you will receive, and your food, though pretty, is not intended to please. Perhaps... More

Hubby and I ate here twice while in Yachats. Loved the history of this old place and the food served was very good. Outstanding Bloody Mary from Ernie at the bar.

We decided to stop in for lunch while on vacation in the area since we had seen a line outside waiting the night before. Figured it was a good choice. Menu is all over the place and we did not expect the food to be very good. The tacos were SOO good! The story of the place is so cool... More
