Really good burgers, really! Local beef, local bun, oven fries, sailing atmosphere. We were there kind of late, so it wasn't crowded, but I imagine there might be a wait sometimes, as it is small. If you crave burgers, it's worth it!

My grandson, his girlfriend and I enjoyed a lovely dinner of seafood. The corn chowder really hit the spot also. What an unexpected treat. I highly recommend this restaurant for a delightful meal.

Expensive but so good! Try the one with a fried oyster! Also, breakfast menu is amazing. We love the wee breakfasts, you can get just a small order of biscuits and gracy, or one pancake, or one egg breakfasts. And, you can get the fried oyster...

This place was the cherry on top of a fun day exploring Whidbey Island and Deception Pass. We've been in the Seattle area for about 4 months now and this is one of the best places we've eaten since getting here! The place is a bit small so make sure you get there early or aren't starving when you arrive... More

Menu is interesting and has good variety - just couldn't try everything that looked good in our first two visits. Fills up fast, but they still try to accommodate hungry travelers.

We stayed at The Majestic Inn. After having dinner at A'Town, we walked down the street to have dessert here. It was crowded, so we ate at the bar. It was August and the restaurant was very warm inside; not in a good way. Other than that, the staff was friendly and accommodating. We both ordered the same thing except... More

After a boat trip to check whales we decided to stay one night at Anacortes and in my hotel the Adrift was recommended. What a surprise, delicious, wondefull dishes, the fish was great, with some nice flavours. Kind of expensive, but worth the value for nice food. The service was perfect, on time, kindly and helpfull, if you stop there... More

Stopped in for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised at the excellent food and service! We would have normally walked by this restaurant since nothing "grabbed" us by its appearance from the outside, but a friend recommended we try it. Food was healthy, beautifully presented and the server was friendly and knowledgeable about menu choices. We returned the same day for... More

We expected better seafood when we eat close to the water, like in a port town like Anacortes. The halibut tacos were just ok, a little dry.

I really debated whether to visit this restaurant based on the mixed reviews - although most were positive. I should have listened to my intuition. It was a Monday so not terribly busy. Service started off with a bang. Taken to a table immediately, water delivered promptly. Waitress came by very quickly to get a drink order - brought us... More
