Long wait...but our server Nora's attentiveness made up for it. The place was packed with both locals and visitors, with only 2 servers so tables took a while to get ready. But once we've ordered, food came out really fast. I wasn't feeling particularly well...More

We have been to this restaurant several times. My husband loves the chopping. Everything is is fresh and delicious. Our grandchildren are always treated with respect. Love their books and toys for kids to choose.

Ate here Halloween night, had a delicious cesear salad, grilled halibut, best broccolini ever, and potato mash. Wine half price by the bottle as well. Fun staff dressed for the occasion. If this restaurant was in my hometown I would eat there once a week!!

Heading away from a relaxed active but also quiet 2 days on San Juan Island, Adrift provided a flavorful respite in Anacortes on the road back to civilization. I had the Dungeness crab cakes which spicy and full of crabmeat pairing well with a local...More

I would definitely return to try more of the wide variety offered, not many restaurants have a squash special - which was very good! The restaurant is crowded and loud but the food and servers outweighs the environment.

Lunch before the ferry. Crab cake was perfect- very tasty sauce. Fish tacos made with halibut could not have been better.

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.
