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.

Excellent and unique food. Truly something for everyone! Excellent location for vegetarians with many fine choices to select from. Close your eyes and point to something at the menu... Yes its all that good! Great location right in the heart of town and closet to the ocean!

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
