Best Crab Cakes I ever tasted! Blackened Fish and Cioppino were very fresh and beautifully prepared. Service was friendly and prompt. PS this was a weeknight dinner so not overly busy.

We’ve eaten here twice and each time it’s been perfect. The burger, grilled cheese, crab dip, fish tacos all great. Service is good and attentive to details. The smells of great food envelopes as the door opens.

Went for breakfast with friends passing through town. Cutely decorated, but the seats could use some updating. The food and service was outstanding! Had the biscuits and gravy and OMG! Will be back

Creative dishes, charming atmosphere, friendly employees combine to make Adrift a great dining experience. We liked it so much for breakfast (only order the half biscuits and gravy - portions are huge!), we went back for dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed both meals.

The restaurant is noisy and the tables are VERY close together. It is great for 2-4 people but not great for larger parties. Also gets quite warm due to close seating. Food so far has been pretty good.
