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.

An excellent, original breakfast spot.

This is one of our regular destinations for dining out because we know we will never be disappointed with our meal. Everything is good here, but some of my favorites are the incredible breakfast burritos and crab au gratin steak. The only thing to be aware of is that because they do only serve fresh food, there is always a... More

The best thing about Adrift is the food. My husband and I have never had a bad meal there. It's a special place where we like to take visiting family and friends. We particularly appreciate the locally sourced foods: shellfish, pork, lamb, beef, greens, bread, wines. The menu is broad enough that you can find something appealing in your price... More

We looked forward to visiting with all the 4&5 stars but I say that was only for the service at dinner. The atmosphere and lighting is flat at night. We had the steak and the Chicken Marsala. Presentation was good but balsamic ribbon garnish on the plate was too much. The steak was drowning in it. Neither dishes were seasoned... More

I like the "breakfast sandwich" concept, but they are never memorable. The breakfast sandwich at Adrift, like everything I've ever ordered at Adrift, was most memorable. They serve it on large slices on toasted Breadfarm white bread with two over easy eggs, melted Jarlsburg cheese / toasted garlic aioli / choice of avocado or Hempler’s peppered bacon. I get both...

Based on other Tripadvisor reviews we stopped at Adrift for lunch on our way back from the San Juan Islands Ferry. This sometimes quirky restaurant with its nautical library theme was no disappointment. We really enjoyed the crab au gratin and the wonderful salads. We look forward to returning.

We ate at Adrift one evening during a recent business trip. Of all the places we've tried in Anacortes, this was certainly the best experience [4-day stay]. Excellent food, great location, good recommendations from the staff, and friendly service. What else can you ask for? I would certainly dine here again during a future trip.
