I really enjoyed my grilled grouper taco. The fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned, plus a generous amount. We have never been disappointed with any of our choices at Driftaway cafe.

By recommendation of a close friend, we visited this amazing local restaurant in the Moon River District of Savannah. Tuna Bites are a MUST - WOW.

We stayed in Savannah for a week and this was the best place we ate! Comfortable atmosphere but the food felt upscale! The best tuna we have had in a long time. We ordered the blueberry lemon salmon, firecracker shrimp tacos and two orders of...the Tybee Island Tuna dinner. I’ve never seen a more beautiful presentation for this tuna dish and the slabs of meat were HUGE. We heard their potato salad was good so the waitress brought us a sample and then we ordered sides of that too. This place feels like where the locals eat and that’s a great find in my book. It was a bit hard to find as my GPS had us turn before we even found the place. Please put this on your “must try list” because it’s well worth it.More

Service was top notch. Food was solid but not spectacular. I ordered the Parmesan crusted grouper and it was lacking flavor. The decor is interesting and down to earth but I’d come back here if I’m the neighborhood to give it a second shot.

My late lunch of the fish sandwich was just wonderful. A huge piece of nicely blackened fish with a great sauce . You really cant go wrong whatever you order here.

The menu is deep & reliably good. Service is friendly & efficient. The inside can get noisy, but the outdoor atmosphere is attractive & generally peaceful. Family owned & operated. I've never been disappointed here.

We go to Driftaway often and I usually get steamed grouper or Shell's turkey Reuben, both of which are very good. This time I ordered the scallops and loved this combination of cheese, spinach, pasta and a sauce which was not overpowering. Brought some home...and will have them tonight. Great choices!!!!More

This is our favorite place. Great food and friendly people. We usually get seafood but discovered the Ginger Chicken Salad recently. It has become one of our favorites.

Great food. Great service. Driftaway is convenient, lots of parking across the street. A little noisy. Parking lot needs to be paved
