We were pleasantly surprised at this restaurant. Very warm atmosphere. It even has a phone booth inside. The food was excellent, the best blackened salmon I have ever had. The Haddock dish was also excellent. Service was also super!! Can't wait to return.

Drift Away is basically Abercrombie's reincarnated. Abercrombies was a seacoast staple for many years. The family closed the Abercrombies in 2010, it reopened in 2011 as Drift Away - inside it's unchanged, the menu is new, food is good, but not outstanding.

This is a new restaurant that opened up in the place of another long-time favorite (Abercrombies) and it appeared to have a lot of traffic at first, but now that has waned. We know why - it is a horrible place to eat. It is...More
