We went for a quick drink and a snack and ended up staying for dinner. The service was just right...attentive without being pushy. The bar has a great throwback vibe and I could stay there all day.

Went to Driftwood Inn a place I've been to before when I've been to Cannon Beach on a Christian Retreat. It was great then and again now. The service was great didn't have to wait long and they were busy but still waited on everyone pretty well. The food was great and filling. We ordered their fish on a recommendation... More

We have always loved the food at the Driftwood, the only negative is the older maitre d who acts like you are not welcome to dine at his establishment. Not sure if he owns the restaurant but we go there often and he always acts like it is an inconvenience to seat us. Have been with a big group and... More

We stopped in on a cold afternoon for a Back when we saw the outdoor fireplace. Perfect spot (unless there is someone in your party that is under 21). I don't think it's a good spot for kids right there but sure liked it when people brought their dogs. Had great warm drinks and we came back at dinner. Guess... More

Have enjoyed the great retro ambiance of the Driftwood Restaurant in Cannon Beach many times. While its nothing fancy...it has a great retro 70s feel. Great outside dining by open firepit. Food is good with great selection of seafood and steaks. Great staff very friendly, and of course the Cannon Beach environment surrounds you with low stress, and slow pace... More

Great dog friendly patio. Good food and friendly service. A nice place to watch the world go by. Very popular patio on a nice day, sheltered patio spots with heaters on the less nice days. Haven't sat inside as we always had a dog.

We stopped here for lunch and brought the dog. We sat on the patio out front and they cater to dog families. We opted for the clam chowder bread bowl - very good. If you're lucky, you'll get the spot that's got a little fire pit in the middle. We'll definitely be going back again.

Our cod and chips were well done. My husband and I shared a platter of them. The slaw was good, also. If you are hard of hearing, chose another place to eat. It's very, very noisy. Staff is friendly and helpful. Couldn't have asked for that to have been any better.
