About the Drift Inn
Historic Pub & Cafe
The Drift Inn is a family-friendly, non-smoking restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. We are located on scenic Highway 101 with a view of the Yachats River as it reaches the Pacific Ocean.
Our menu is an eclectic mix of family favorites and original dishes focused on fresh ingredients and the Pacific Northwest. We also offer live music every night of the week, catering services, Oregon beers, fine wines, coffee drinks, homemade soups, fresh baked breads, and decadent desserts - all served up in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere.
We open everyday at 8 am, we start serving lunch at 11 am, and dinner begins at 5 pm. Our nightly music performances usually start at about 6:30 or 7 pm. Dinner usually winds down around 9:30, then we close when the last guest has gone home.
Lester in his element
Before the Drift Inn was the Drift Inn it was Lester's Drift Inn. Lester is kind of a local legend now, and his bar was a local institution. Read a little bit of his colorful history.
