We are new to town and excited to try the Adrift restaurant all the locals rave about. I'm not sure if we just drew the short straw or just had to high of expectations but our food was nothing more than average. My cesar salad was good and my husbands steamers were o.k. The rest of the meal was not... More

I went here recently with a friend for a late Saturday afternoon lunch. My friend was coming from SeaTac, and therefore her arrival was really unpredictable. I arrived at the time of the reservation, she did not come until nearly an hour later, but the restaurant staff assured me that all was fine. Our meal - mine, crab cakes -... More

It used to be funky and good. Now it less funky but equally good. Food choices are limited, but fresh and interesting. Wait staff are attentive. Can be a bit noisy, but it was the weekend.

Overall, the food was good, but it didn't live up to the reviews I've read prior to dining here. Also, the food presentation was unappealing. Thankfully, the food was fine but wasn't anything to rave about.

Found this place passing through on the way to San Juans. I will return again next time. The three of us were all equally pleased. Everything is great. It was a fun brunch. The place is pretty booked up at all times from what I can tell.

With a relatively few restaurants in Anacortes we have tried most....including Adrift a few times. The food is all very good if a little in the expensive end of the scale. The servers are all excellent and drink selection is very good. Try this place if you are in town at least once

We eat at Adrift frequently. We've been for breakfast, brunch, lunch, late lunch, dinner and dessert. I have never had a bad meal here and most meals have been amazing. They have a great wine list, great regular menu and inventive specials. This is the kind of place where the chef will show you photos of the food you are... More

This was a relaxed, quaint family-owned restaurant loaded with local charm. All of our meals looked good and tasted great. My husband really enjoyed his fried oyster burger! Our server was happy, friendly and attentive. It was a great way to end our day in Anacortes. Thanks!
