Our salads came or promptly and they were quite tasty. The kitchen puts out an amazing amount of food for such a relatively small space. They have a nice assortment of seafood and steaks.

On a recent Cannon Beach trip our family of 5 selected Driftwood for dinner based on good reviews and menu variety. We ate early at 5pm on a Thursday. Service was very good and friendly. Adults had salmon, filet mignon, fried prawns, and fish & chips. All were very good. Our son liked the cheeseburger and fries. The chowder is... More

My husband and I sat at the bar for drinks and appetizers. Jeanet was our bartender and she was fantastic. Our drinks were delicious and well priced. The cold crab cocktail tasted so fresh and sweet. I've craved it every day since. The oysters Rockefeller are very good too. We will definitely be back!

We had the deep fried oysters and they were wonderful! The clam chowder was tasty as well. Would definitely eat there again.

We had lunch there after not being able to get in the night before as it was so busy. Usually a good sign. The food was really good and the Marionberry pie was to die for! Will definitely go back on our next visit to the area.

We've been to Cannon Beach dozens of times and had somehow always walked right past this place. What a pleasent surprise! We both had the wedge salad and 10oz. Filet Mignon's. The steaks were cooked perfectly and tasted absolutely wonderful! Well worth the very reasonable price we paid. The restaurant was very busy at the time we visited, and we... More

We liked the service and atmosphere on the deck. It has heaters and a fire pit and it gives sufficient heat. We were able to eat out there with our dog. The food was mediocre at best. Steak ordered MR came to us well-done. Had to send it back and the next one came blood-rare. Had to take it home... More

Hello Neal C., thank you for sharing your comments. While we are glad you enjoyed our deck and our service; we feel terribly that we failed you with your entrees. We are truly disappointed with ourselves, and hope we'll have an opportunity to make it up to you. Thank you again for your candid feedback. More
