We stopped in on a cold afternoon for a Back when we saw the outdoor fireplace. Perfect spot (unless there is someone in your party that is under 21). I don't think it's a good spot for kids right there but sure liked it when people brought their dogs. Had great warm drinks and we came back at dinner. Guess... More

Have enjoyed the great retro ambiance of the Driftwood Restaurant in Cannon Beach many times. While its nothing fancy...it has a great retro 70s feel. Great outside dining by open firepit. Food is good with great selection of seafood and steaks. Great staff very friendly, and of course the Cannon Beach environment surrounds you with low stress, and slow pace... More

Great dog friendly patio. Good food and friendly service. A nice place to watch the world go by. Very popular patio on a nice day, sheltered patio spots with heaters on the less nice days. Haven't sat inside as we always had a dog.

We stopped here for lunch and brought the dog. We sat on the patio out front and they cater to dog families. We opted for the clam chowder bread bowl - very good. If you're lucky, you'll get the spot that's got a little fire pit in the middle. We'll definitely be going back again.

Our cod and chips were well done. My husband and I shared a platter of them. The slaw was good, also. If you are hard of hearing, chose another place to eat. It's very, very noisy. Staff is friendly and helpful. Couldn't have asked for that to have been any better.

Went here twice on our trip, once for dinner and once for a drink. The food was okay, nothing out of this world but not bad by any standards was just a standard meal however great beer selection. Sat in the bar area as the resteraunt area looked a bit more fancy and we were after something a bit more... More

No surprises here either way. The service was excellent. Our meals were good and very fresh. The decor is old and tired with those hard wood chairs. Clean. The fire out front brings you in and while you won't be overly impressed, you won't be disappointed either.
