Our Skagit Burgers are locally famous, they are made with local grass fed beef, housemade potato bun, balsamic caramelized red onions, and toasted garlic aioli. Drift in and join us for a great meal.

“Good Tasting, Healthful, Fresh Northwest WA Food”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Using the best local organic ingredients accompanied by good beers and wines, this newly-updated casual restaurant consistently serves healthful satisfying food. (Many gluten-free choices on the menu.) On the way to the San Juan Islands ferry, while visiting the tulip fields, or for locals looking for good food, try the popular Adrift on lower Commercial in downtown Anacortes. Choose a table or booth in one room or for fun, sit on a stool at the long counter and watch the chefs and staff. Tip: Fri. and Sat. night, make a reservation.

One of our FAVORITE restaurants! My son is a waiter in a restaurant in Boulder CO and loves great food and unique restaurant experiences. We all loved ADRIFT! The food is great and elegantly prepared. The atmosphere is rustic and creative. We Loved it and have recommended to all of our friends.

“Top notch food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

My friend and I just picked a random restaurant near our hotel, which happened to be the Adrift. Wow. Wow. Wow. What a surprise. We are both from Seattle and I have to say...this restaurant puts many Seattle restaurants to shame. GREAT food. Highly recommended. (Oysters were the BEST).

“Wonderful lunch”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

We found this on Trip Advisor, while on an excursion to the tulip festival in Skagit Valley. We had crab au gratin, fried oysters, and a crab cake. All the food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the ambiance was interesting. Old building with lots of character. Would highly recommend.
