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...

Went here on Sunday morning for a breakfast and they had scrambled eggs with crab meat that are really so good. The place gets full, so waiting time may be a bit long, but food is great.

We tried to go to this restaurant a year ago but it was full. We were advised by the locals that this is a favorite place for the residents. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and atmosphere at this restaurant. I had crab cakes, which were delicious and my husband had a fresh cod dish, also delicious.

We are new to town and excited to try the Adrift restaurant all the locals rave about. I'm not sure if we just drew the short straw or just had to high of expectations but our food was nothing more than average. My cesar salad was good and my husbands steamers were o.k. The rest of the meal was not... More

I went here recently with a friend for a late Saturday afternoon lunch. My friend was coming from SeaTac, and therefore her arrival was really unpredictable. I arrived at the time of the reservation, she did not come until nearly an hour later, but the restaurant staff assured me that all was fine. Our meal - mine, crab cakes -... More

It used to be funky and good. Now it less funky but equally good. Food choices are limited, but fresh and interesting. Wait staff are attentive. Can be a bit noisy, but it was the weekend.

Overall, the food was good, but it didn't live up to the reviews I've read prior to dining here. Also, the food presentation was unappealing. Thankfully, the food was fine but wasn't anything to rave about.

Found this place passing through on the way to San Juans. I will return again next time. The three of us were all equally pleased. Everything is great. It was a fun brunch. The place is pretty booked up at all times from what I can tell.
