Arrived on a cold, rainy day and the chicken pot pie was solo scrumptious. Hot and filling and very tasty! My husband had the grilled salmon and it was very fresh and perfectly prepared.

I stopped in at this restaurant while touring the Oregon coast. What good luck. The servers were friendly though a bit slow. The food was good and soothing. I had a nice veggie stir fry & jasmine tea. The dessert lust looked yummy but I was too full. Next time.

Lovely experience at the Drift Inn. Went for lunch with another couple. Got a little bit of everything. Steamed clams, fried calamari, chowder, and fish and chips. All enjoyable!

The decor may throw you, but the food is worth the wait. Clever options and hands down the best gluten free menu I have ever encountered. They bake their own GF goods and they are absolutely excellent.

We were only in Yachats one night and loved this restaurant. Our hotel recommended it for dinner and it was so good we went back the next morning for breakfast. Both times the meals were incredible. Seafood lasagna and crabcakes for dinner--delicious. Raspberry crepes and Pacific NW scramble for breakfast--incredible. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had dinner at the Drift Inn during an overnight visit to Yachats. I had the halibut fish & chips which was delicious. The batter on the fish was crispy but not too thick or overly breaded. The fries were excellent, and the tartar sauce was good. My boyfriend had the salmon dinner and he really enjoyed it. Our server... More

This is a reasonable dinner spot in the town of Yachats. The menu was fairly large with a wide selection (pub food, seafood dinners, pizza,...). It has a good bar so there were a reasonable selection of drinks. The night we were there, they had live music. My wife had the salmon (with the blackberry hazelnut sauce) and I had... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner with family at this quaint, inviting restaurant in Yachats. Dishes enjoyed by my group were the fish and chips (fish cooked perfectly with crispy coating), halibut with crab cake crust (balanced, flavorful tender fish), and the crab cakes (delicious). They had live music which was nice but amped a bit much for the space which made... More

The Drift Inn is our main "go to" restaurant whenever we are in the area. We've tried all of the others that seem to come and go, but always come back to The Drift Inn. Their food is wonderful and it is greatly appreciated that they serve vegan and gluten free items which are clearly marked on the menu. I... More

We had a great dinner here. My hubby ordered the special with halibut. It was a casserole of halibut, tortillas and three types of mole sauce. Man O Man it was good. You could get other seafood choices but I can't imagine any being better than the halibut. I had the seafood stew and it was great too. Just what... More
