Small town bar and diner with very good food. Portions are large. Live music with dinner did not distract, and was enjoyable.

They were very busy because of all the participants at the... More

Meal was not memorable, but the atmosphere was good. I'm not a fan of live music at the dinner hour as it adds to the noise level and detracts from conversation.

This restaurant was recommended by the young man at our motel. Menu is fairly extensive and offers a mix of American, Mexican and Italian. The food is farm to table and nicely prepared. My chicken pot crust had chunks of meat and veggies in a to die for crust. My husband's pasta dish was sumptuous and delicious. It arrived, however,... More

While The Drift Inn is a favorite stop for me when travelling on the Oregon Coast, I recently had the opportunity to also stay in one of the B&B rooms. The owners, Linda, and Gretchen were wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful. The "bike out"room is small, with the showers and WC shared by all guests on the floor - but... More

While on our week in Waldport, we're sampling some of the restaurants around the area from Newport to Florence. We decided to try The Drift Inn, and were happy we came. There was five us in our party, and we were easily seated and well taken care of. The atmosphere was also nice with a outdoor seating area in the... More

We drive 30 miles to go there for a special breakfast. Even though we have not been there for other meals, we know from... More

After an enjoyable browse at a local arts and crafts fair on a Sunday morning we went looking breakfast/brunch and found that The Drift Inn was open for business and doing it briskly. It was our luck to be seated promptly but we noticed that newer patrons had a short wait in the lobby area where there are gift items... More

Hubby had the seafood lasagne, and I had the teriyaki rice bowl with chicken. Both meals surpassed our high expectations. Delicious flavors, great blending of ingredients, lovely presentations. Wait staff was helpful and friendly, and the whole vibe of the restaurant was relaxing and comfortable.
