pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Blair's Driftwood Inn Restaurant & Lounge

If you want to sit along the Missouri River to watch boats, birds or anything head up to the Driftwood Inn Restaurant & Lounge. The Driftwood located at 10740 Serenity Lane in Blair, NE is a good location for site seeing. They serve American food in this little building along the river.

When you arrive through the front door you come into their lounge. Along the east wall which is comprised of windows, they have a few pairs of binoculars hanging. There is a door that you can step through, which will take you to deck that sits above the river. The left wall is the bar, one beer on tap, Bud Light of course; they do however have several bottle choices. Up a couple stairs is the main dining area not very big but they can handle parties of 12 like ours.

The menu is comprised of chicken, steak and fish. A few in our group order some appetizers, which they kindly shared with everyone. I tried the portabella mushrooms, which are breaded then fried. What I liked about this appetizer--is that they were not that greasy and had a great spice mixture. I would recommend giving these a try. Next, I tried a couple onion rings. Again not very greasy and had nice flavor. I thought I would try this evening the country steak, which comes covered in a mushroom gravy. The steak was cooked to a nice pink medium--just the way I like it. The steak was tender and the mushroom gravy was tasty. Severed with hashbrowns and green beans to round out the entrée.

After compiling the surveys from the other population-we™  (pop-we) Dinner Club foodies scores the Driftwood a 4.04 star average on a scale of 1-5.

Atmosphere/Decor – 3.83

Driftwood Inn Restaurant & Lounge does not have an official website or Facebook page. So, for menu items you just have this blog post to go off of and as far as directions--most of our dinner club party successfully found our way there by using Google Maps. If you're looking for adventure and down home cooking, we recommend the Driftwood in Blair Nebraska.
