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...

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

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.
