We've been to the Drift Inn three times over the past couple of years and every time we are pleased with the great food. The servers are hustling the whole time you are there trying to keep everyone happy and the food served right out of the kitchen. They make a great cheeseburger and an even better Chicken Mole. The... More

We stopped in after church and had lunch there, the grand kids loved their meals as well as we enjoyed ours. The curry bowl my wife had was very tasty. I had the fish n chips (Halibut) and it was pretty good. Although next time I may order a pizza as the table near us got one and it looked... More

If you're looking for great seafood this is not the place for you. The staff are wonderful but the seafood is mediocore. The steak was good, prices are a little high for winter at the beach.

Drift Inn has the most incredible breakfast! The service has never been anything to write home about, but the food makes up for it. We've eaten lunch and dinner here a few times as well; which are also good.

This has to have been the best meal of our vacation. Everything made from scratch, all seafood wild caught and meats locally sourced, with offerings you'd expect to find at an upscale restaurant -- Hungarian mushroom soup, crab ravioli with lobster sauce, lamb with an apple compote. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, and able to answer all our questions.... More

I had a seafood lasagna and my wife had the Peruvian Fusion with flat iron steak. Her word for it was delicious with agreat curry flavor. My lasagna was also amazing. Great service, good music. Highly recommend.

Great service. Good selection on menu. Plenty to choose from. Very cleverly decorated. Even on a busy night, was able to get right in. Food arrived promptly.

Our favorite place for dinner in Yachats. It does get busy, but only at "true" dinner time. We arrived at 6 and all tables were full. We sat at the bar (full menu) and by 7 the place was pretty empty again. So go a little early or a little later and enjoy! The seafood chowder is one of my... More

Delicious Dungenous Crab Melt. The only negative was that, even though it was August, the tomato on the crab melt was not ripe and flavorful. The crab itself was wonderful. The place is attractive and comfortable, and my photography group always stops at least once when we are in the area.

Thank Penelope C
