“Great Steaks by the Missouri River”
Review of Driftwood Inn

Restaurant details
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Driftwood Inn is a "country mile" north of Blair, Nebraska. It's about a 30 minute drive north of Omaha, Nebraska. The place is down a long gravel road and looks like it is surrounded by farm buildings. The walls inside are plywood with some varnish, so its not going to be where you go for upscale. This is a down home, farmer's Saturday night go-out-to-dinner place. Grab your jeans and seed corn hat and you'll fit right in. The deck out by the river is for drinks-only. Our table inside had a great view of the river. After you are seated, the nicest wait staff gets your order taken quickly, with salads and drinks out in no time. They are known for their filet. I order the large filet and my wife had the smaller one. They were done to perfection and almost melted on the fork because they were so tender. Our waitress kept the drinks filled, checked in on us and made us feel very welcome. Two huge filets, bread, salads and iced tea were $50. After dinner, we were able to sit out on the deck and watch the river and boaters go by. Too many places in Nebraska want to make you feel like you are in some big city. The Driftwood Inn makes your feel like you are in the best of Nebraska.

Without a doubt this is the best place in town to get a fillet. Sometimes there is a wait but it's well worth it.

The restaurant is located north of Blair, Nebraska on the Missouri River. You can sit outside on the 2 level patio when the weather is nice. Full bar. They have the best filet, fork tender and about $5.00 cheaper than any steakhouse in Omaha. A variety of other steaks as well as fish, chicken and pork entrees. The restaurant is family owned. Friendly and accommodating. The bad news is they are only open Thursday-Sunday 5 to 10 PM. It is located north of Blair, take 10th street off of Hwy 30 north several miles until the pavement ends. You will see a sign directing you to the restaurant.

Love the large filet! Food is very good and prices are more than reasonable. You can get a large filet, potato, vegetable and salad all the hot bread sticks you can eat for less than $30. steaks are cooked to your order and service is always friendly. Not fancy but clean and very good food. Building is right on the river bank and there is outside seating on a deck over looking the river.
