We ate at the bar here the second night in town and had an absolutely fabulous meal. Food and drink wise (Prime Rib, New York, Moscow Mules, apple walnut custard pie) everything was top notch! Cook and prepared perfectly. YUM! Unfortunately we did feel a little rushed as we weren't even through our soup and salad (had maybe been 5 minutes after placing order) and our entrees were put in front of us! That's what I get for ordering rare I suppose, but as someone who works in a restaurant we like to time delivery a little more to avoid the customer feeling rushed, and allowing more drink purchases which we would have done had had the time. The bartender was very good at his job, and was very attentive and helpful. They all seemed to work well together. I gave 4 stars not 5 due to the rushed feeling, and also being ignored for 10 minutes the night before as we were waiting for seating. I mean employees walked by 5 times without even acknowledgment of us being there. Had we not heard so many great things about this place there is no way we would have came back. However, very glad we did! Live music was just lovely as well, a nice treat!

I don't think a dessert has ever before lured me back to a restaurant a second night, but that's exactly what the marionberry cobbler did (& big enough to share)! And the rest of the meal was no slouch either...particularly the excellent wild salmon. This is a funky casual restaurant/bar that seems to be a local favorite, and with very good food.

This was our second time on the coast and we have eaten here both times. Amazing breakfast variety and the seafood omelette is ah-ma-zing.
Great friendly staff and quick, delicious service.

One of the most interesting and delightful restaurants/diner we encountered on the Pacific West coastline and would recommend it highly. It's not fine dining but the food standard was good and portions generous - but for character and atmosphere I would go back every day.

The Drift Inn has a great atmosphere, good food, is reasonably priced and if you are there in the evening, even local musicians. I highly recommend it!
