Adrift is a friendly, casual, locavore eatery with a creative and diverse menu. We serve breakfast all day, lunch, and dinner, and we source much of our meats, seafood, and produce from local farmers. We have an extensive seafood menu featuring local clams, mussels, scallops, oysters, crab, smoked trout, salmon, halibut, and catfish. Our Skagit Burgers are locally famous, they are made with local grass fed beef, housemade potato bun, balsamic caramelized red onions, and toasted garlic aioli. Drift in and join us for a great meal.

This restaurant is in our town and we have been a few times, usually for dinner, and because our dinner companions want to go there. Overall, the food is average to good, but service is spotty. One night great, the next night it seems hurried and flaky. Adrift is one of the better places to eat in town with a... More

We ate there on a Saturday morning. Stumbled upon it and very happy we did. They have counter and table seating, we chose the counter. Menu is unique but with plenty of standard fare for those unadventurous types. My wife had a crab scramble and I had the eggs with pan fried oysters. Both came with a yukon gold potato... More

Adrift is by far the best food in Anacortes but the restaurant is noisy so not a place for a romantic dinner. I would recommend getting your food to go and eat at a local park or table overlooking Cap Sante Marina.

We had an outside table and loved it. There are only a few so we were lucky. We met a local who said they always bring guests to this restaurant. I had the fish tacos with halibut. They were good, but I have had better. We are not meat eaters, but I noticed many people digging in to their steaks!
