Stumbled across drift at happy hour Friday night (4pm-6pm). All schooners $4 and best atmosphere of anywhere on the esplanade.

We chose drift for an midweek evening dinner. There were six of us we all had beers and cider on tap which we were very pleased with.

Most of us opted for the steak including me - it was cooked and seasoned perfectly which delicious sides. Crispy kipfler potatoes and brocolini, asparagus cooked beautifully.

We were all very pleased and will return. The attentive, friendly staff made all the difference.

We sat and waited 50 - 60 minutes for a burger.How long does it take to make a burger??? We would still be sitting there if I hadn't asked about our meal.When it arrived my vege burger was lukewarm but the chips were hot.I was really looking forward to this as it sounded so good on the menu.I am sure we had been forgotten because the people that arrived at the next table got their meals 5 minutes after we got ours.Who was forgotten !!!!!!! Our money was refunded with an apology but don't think I'd ever go back until they get more staff or staff that will notice you still didn't have a meal after sitting there for so long.Such a shame.

Over priced for a tiny sized meal. Eggs tasted completely like vinegar... Disappointed. Choice of tea was poor. Won't be back
