Great food and fun ambiance.

Recommended by hotel. Food was very good. Decor and ambiance was exceptional for a small waterfront fishing town. Staff was friendly and efficient. Good value.

Did go in at 8 pm without a reservation and had to wait over an hour to be seated. Our food was not delivered to the table till almost 10pm. We are a party of two who were seated at a table for four with a menu setup to divide the table. Not a lot of space in this restaurant.... More

Went to dinner here with my mom while we were waiting to catch the ferry to the San Juans. I had never spent time in Anacortes prior to this, and loved the board of local activities and events inside. It was a busy Saturday night so it took awhile to get our order started but we didn't mind a bit... More

We ate at Adrift during the Holiday Season. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. It is in the center of Anacortes. Easy parking. The food and service were excellent. We had Rock Cod and pan fried Oysters, both of which were delicious. The salad had very fresh ingredients. The waitress was very friendly, gave us a history of the town... More

I stopped in the day hungry for almost anything. To my surprise, I was greeted with smiles and a menu full of wonderful options. The food was fantastic, the service was great and I would definitely recommend this place if you find yourself in Anacortes and hungry.

If you are going off of the menu prices on this website, prepare to be very surprised when you go in there. And they will not honor the prices listed on this trip advisor menu, even after pulling it up on my phone and showing it to them. Not sure how the food is because I walked out and won't... More

Excellent flavor combinations with fresh ingredients. We had twho dishes: tacos with beans and squash on fresh corn tortillas. Three sisters! Their mango salsa is so good, I ordered a pint to go. And a fried egg sandwich on Breadfarm bread. The servers are uniformly cheerful. Decor is copper-topped tables; there are hardcover books all around to browse. Definitely will... More

Based on other yelper reviews, we had to try it. We were in town for the weekend. For dinner, you need reservations. We stopped in casually on Friday at 6pm and next table for two was at 8pm. We made a reservation for Sunday brunch instead. OH MY....waiting for brunch was worth it. $5 Mimosa on Sunday, husband ordered crab... More

for food. Menu is limited but delicious and prices seem reasonable to me. Service is also first-rate. What it lacks,in my view, is atmosphere. It feels cluttered to me, full of used books plus assorted what-not. This is not a huge deal for me but it does detract from an optimum experience. It I had the option, I'd bump the... More
