Food needed an oil change. It was so oily surprised OPEC wasn't screaming. Unless I have a major memory lapse or just come down with dementia never going back unless they change owners and cooks

My husband and I had a bit of a wait for the ferry and were hungry, so we walked over to the Drifters to check it out. We told the waitress we only had about 25 minutes and she took care of us right away. We ordered sandwiches and chips to go, and in 10 minutes were on our way... More

Fun visit to Drifters. The waitress that helped us was so friendly. Went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. We got a pitcher of beer, ice cream and some poppers. I think their poppers are some the best around.

Stopped in here over 30 years ago, not much has changed. The staff is still friendly, service is about the same, and there's a good choice of beers. The menu is simple as is the food, it's a pub. Great place to shoot a game of pool, have a couple beers, and if your visiting via boat it's just up... More

Good food. First time ordering here and I got the oyster basket with fries. Very yummy meal for those sea food lovers. I will be back. Now I'm headed over to Mora Mora for ice cream which is right across the street.

Like others, we were waiting for the ferry to Seattle just about supper time. So we strolled in and were greeted pleasantly. I had the fish and chips and really enjoyed it. They also had a nice selection of beers and wines. The waitress was good-natured and competent.

Had the fish and chips. Light breading, which I like. Came out hot. A little to much red cabbage in the cole slaw for my liking, but that is a personal preference. Good service. Nice selection of beers. Not a lot of choices in Kingston, so this place is not bad. Kind of a local bar, where anybody can sit... More

Yum!... More

We decided to stop after waking on the ferry for a family day and found this spot. We got the fish and chips, chowder and onion rings and all of the food was really good. This was on the public side. We also got ice cream after lunch and they are quite generous with their scoops. They had quite the... More
