Halibut and fries were nice. Fries were a bit greasy. Fish was excellent!. Girlfriend had chowder, and was a little disappointed, was full of potato and only a single piece of seafood.
I was genuinely disappointed in how the restaurant seems to own the history of the property, and exploit it a little as a rough locals bar, but keeps nothing of it alive. It seemed odd to talk up the harsh fighting atmosphere but had girly umbrellas everywhere inside.

Staff were excellent, food was good, Id go again.

Don't drive by, stop "Inn". My wife, daughter, and I stopped in returning north after driving south from Waldport to visit a couple of Eugene area wineries. Yachats is a no traffic light town along the coast and The Drift Inn is the heartbeat of the area. We each ordered something different and ended up passing the plates around because we could't decide which meal was the best. I'm leaning toward the Seafood lasagna though. Great service, delicious food, and efficient service. Check out the eclectic little area of local and unusual wares and gifts. A lot of fun. Local musician(s) in the background play for tips. Pretty cool find.

We've visited The Drift Inn for lunch and dinner, a romantic twosome and with the family. The food is always fresh and tasty and served up in a friendly style. There is good regional music every weekend, too. Great value and a fun atmosphere.

We went here at the recommendation of one of the folks that checked us into our hotel. We were just looking for a casual place that had reliable food quality and modestly priced - the fact this place had live entertainment was a bonus.

We decided to sit up at the bar because the restaurant looked full and sometimes prefer this seating versus waiting on the wait staff. Our bartender was nice and helpful w/ selection of entrees and wine. The food was pretty good, enjoyed the atmosphere & entertainment. We had a good relaxing experience that was close to the hotel and that is the basis for the rating.
