Description: Driftaway Cafe specializes in "casual coastal cuisine" with an emphasis on flavor and fun! Driftaway Cafe was created out of the desire to serve the surrounding neighborhoods and businesses fresh local seafood in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Our vision was to offer our guests a quick bite to "eat out" or the opportunity to stay and "dine" whether or not it is a quick taco with a cold beer or one of our featured nightly entrees with a nice bottle of wine. We were set to open on September 11th, 2001! What a horrible day that was for all Americans. We postponed our opening so that terrible day would not be our anniversary. Needless to say, our first year was quite a challenge, but with the support of God, friends and family we continue to strive forward everyday. We specialize in made to order fresh local seafood dishes, fresh garden salads along with a variety of appetizers and sandwiches. Our talented Kitchen staff showcases their skills with nightly entree specials. We are known for our friendly atmosphere and our fun environment. We feature live music a few nights a week and have been blessed with a great staff and a regular repeat clientele! Driftaway Cafe Is a locally owned restaurant located near the Wormsloe Plantation and the historic Isle of Hope. Owners, Robyn and Michele, have been in business together for the last two decades in Savannah. They work hard as a team and have developed a great staff that have been taught to treat each person that walks through the doors not as just another customer, but as a guest in their own home. They work hard to instill a passion for food, fun, flavor and family into everyone they meet!

We have moved to a neighborhood near this restaurant and it quickly became our new favorite place. The food is excellent and they have gluten free options that my husband enjoys (the Jerk Salmon Salad is a favorite for both of us!). Also, we don't feel out of place when we bring our 7 month old. Also, we love the outdoor seating in nice weather and the cats are entertaining.

A hidden gem! Great food, great service! The Tybee tuna was to die for! We had a party of almost 20 people and everything was perfect from beginning to end. Would highly recommend this great restaurant!

This little slice of heaven in Savannah is incredible. The food is fantastic and the service GREAT! What a fun place! A "beach" feel and casual. Try the calamari or Tuna tar tar! Don't miss going. You'll love it!

This restaurant is a comfortable neighborhood restaurant outside of Savannah, just off Skidaway Island. The food and service were outstanding; the ambience comfortable. One of the vey charming things, along with the great food and service, was being greeted by 2 very lovely and friendly kitties, just outside the restaurant. All in all a wonderful treat.

A group of my friends and I go out for lunch monthly. We very seldom repeat a restaurant, but we all enjoyed our food so much that we went two months in a row. We had salads and sandwiches. I had the Reuben which was delicious and plentiful. My friends raved over the Gullah oyster sandwich and the Baja Fish Tacos. My only complaint, was that by the time we were ready to leave it was packed and so noisy, as most restaurants are today. I would suggest arriving when they open at 11am for a quieter meal.
