“Drift-ing Inn”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

Over the years we have enjoyed this little gem in the heart of Yachats, Oregon. Typically, we have gone there for dinner and found something for every taste on the menu. The list of brews is surprising. Their house dressings - especially the ginger one - will have you wanting more. The salads are all green - no brown! The decor is lots of fun, with hand blown glass lamps and hand made open umbrellas hanging from the ceiling lending a cozy ambiance. The menu is quite extensive and the prices affordable. Some windows feature a view of the nearby ocean. Desserts are to live for! Generous portions can be shared; we had the chocolate mocha cake this time. The staff are very friendly; service was good when we've been there, even during a recent long weekend. Evenings feature live entertainment, so plan to stay and enjoy.

“Great Atmosphere and adequate food!”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

I liked the variety on the menu that was available, but nothing wowed me except the chocolate mocha cake. Both my husband and I chose fish dishes that tasted farm raised. For the price, it just did not work. Maybe it was our food choices. I would give it another try and really enjoyed the live jazz!
