Great breakfast place. The bacon was a nice thick cut. Eggs were cooked as ordered; sunnyside up and over easy. The bread was a good quality. We has sour dough and whole wheat toast. The only gripe was that the vegetables in the breakfast skillet...were for asian stir fry. Pea pods, water chestnuts and carrots. Service was fast and friendly.More

Ordered breakfast and the hashbrowns were served burnt and the omlelets maybe had a drop of cheese in them. We complained to the waitress and nothing was done about it. We paid full price for the food that we couldn't even eat.

My son & I stopped in to Drifters while spending the night in Escanaba. The manager at our hotel recommended we come here for a great Omelet. Breakfast is served anytime here. Our Omelets were absolutely perfect. I built my own with Sausage, Mushrooms, Spinach,...Onions & Swiss Cheese. My son had the Avocado, with Spinach, Tomatoes, Mushrooms & Mozzarella Cheese. The Hash Browns were excellent, as well as the Rye toast & the Gluten Free Multigrain bread. Our server was Jenna, who took careof oureveryneed. .She was very polite, professional & just a Sweetie!! Highly recommend Drifters for a wonderful breakfast!!More

Good food, good service and good prices. We had a group of 9 and were pleasantly accommodated. We were all served our food at the same time. Pleasant experience.

Ate there twice while in Escanaba, once for dinner and once for breakfast. The shrimp dinner was good, the breakfast was very good. Service was excellent - they have enough wait staff, unlike many other restaurants in the summer of '21.
