The food was worth the wait on a Friday night without a reservation. The blackened salmon was very tasty and the bourbon apple bread pudding was really good! It's a loud environment though and could use some sound baffles as it was like eating in a loud bar. Not a very romantic setting for our anniversary dinner.

We decided to go to Anacortes after being somewhat overwhelmed by the tulip festival crowds. What a great find!! The food was outstanding. We had the blackened halibut and my husband had a crab cake appetizer. All the food was fresh, expertly prepared, and absolutely delicious. Our server, Tristan, was knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and was extraordinarily... More

Adrift is our favorite place to celebrate family birthdays. The food is always delicious, the staff friendly and attentive. The free Birthday dessert is an added bonus.

The seafood was good but the place lacked ambiance. It is also quite small. We will probably be going back just for the food though.

This seems like a local favorite and the regional differences in food preference may explain why I am "meh" about the food. The tuna in the ahi poke was very well flavored, but did not have a firm texture. The fries had a heavy Parmesan flavor I didn't care for. Service is good. The space is small and loud, almost...

I ordered the egg sandwich (for lunch) and it was very yummy. The bread comes toasted and the fries are homemade. The salad was huge which made it a little messy to eat, but yummy non-the-less.

I like the interesting menu items and the tastefully prepared food. It can be a little noisy in the room, as other reviewers have noted, but the food is worth any inconvenience. The wait staff are friendly and accommodating.
