I like the interesting menu items and the tastefully prepared food. It can be a little noisy in the room, as other reviewers have noted, but the food is worth any inconvenience. The wait staff are friendly and accommodating.

Really tiny kitchen with 4 or 5 cooks in it. Very fun to watch, take your time before ordering so you can see the dishes being prepared. don't be afraid to ask the cooks questions, very warm and welcoming atmosphere

Excellent restaurant in Anacortes! Try the pan fried oysters - wow! Eggs benedict with Dungeness crab, and biscuits with homemade raspberry jam - truly one the best breakfasts I've ever had. Also enjoyed the nautical theme with fast and friendly service. Some items are a bit on the pricey side - but it was totally worth it - Highly recommended!

Tasty. Good service. It was last summer. It was noisy. Not good for personal conversations but the good was good.

When I want a sit-down meal with good service and excellent food, Adrift is my go-to place. I've eaten here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The standing menu offers a lot of variety and their specials are delicious.

My wife and I spent one night in Anacortes, and had dinner at adrift. The restaurant is small with nice character reflecting the nature of the town. Thought the pace is limited is set up in such a way that it feels private and intimate. Food was good, and full of taste. My two favorite dishes where the Steamers in... More

Not only is the food at Adrift amazing, the service is so personal that you feel like you've been visiting the establishment for ages. I was only in the Anacortes area for four days. I found Adrift on the first night, and opted to return on the third as well. It's just that good. Both nights I sat at the... More

Yesterday my brother and I sat for two hours for coffee only. They didn't care and kept us filled up. Food wasn't cheap although there were a few items very reasonably priced. I watched them make heavenly looking biscuits, and homemade croutons. Very cute place. Very friendly, comfortable and I'd go again anytime! Love those copper counter tops at the... More

The Adrift Restaurant is a good place for interesting food. The menu has many interesting local items and some standard fare for those a little less adventurous. We have dined there on a couple of occasions and enjoyed sitting at the counter watching the staff cook amazing things in an incredibly small kitchen.....this is teamwork at it's best. All tasted...

Adrift is a friendly, casual, locavore eatery with a creative and diverse menu. We serve breakfast all day, lunch, and dinner, and we source much of our meats, seafood, and produce from local farmers. We have an extensive seafood menu featuring local clams, mussels, scallops, oysters, crab, smoked trout, salmon, halibut, and catfish. 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.
