By far the best service in a bar. Not to mention that the drinks were very stout. We stop by every time we're in town.

Sometimes you just want really good food, no attitude, great service, local ambience, history, and genuine folks. Well, these days it's tough, but the Driftwood still delivers it in abundance. So refreshing to walk in with no reservations with it being very busy and told...More

We loved sitting outside at the firepit table which holds 8-10 people - even when its Oregon coast chilly outside you can enjoy your food & beverages with strangers or friends! We really enjoyed the $6 burger during happy hour!
