I remember this bar, there was only one other bar--Mary's, where the folks were particular about the chairs and tables. Back at the Drifter's in the 1960s, when Kingston had a Nike Missile site and US Army was stationed there, The Drifters was the place to go. My husband took me there the second day in town and I met... More

Food needed an oil change. It was so oily surprised OPEC wasn't screaming. Unless I have a major memory lapse or just come down with dementia never going back unless they change owners and cooks

My husband and I had a bit of a wait for the ferry and were hungry, so we walked over to the Drifters to check it out. We told the waitress we only had about 25 minutes and she took care of us right away. We ordered sandwiches and chips to go, and in 10 minutes were on our way... More

Fun visit to Drifters. The waitress that helped us was so friendly. Went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. We got a pitcher of beer, ice cream and some poppers. I think their poppers are some the best around.

Stopped in here over 30 years ago, not much has changed. The staff is still friendly, service is about the same, and there's a good choice of beers. The menu is simple as is the food, it's a pub. Great place to shoot a game of pool, have a couple beers, and if your visiting via boat it's just up... More

Good food. First time ordering here and I got the oyster basket with fries. Very yummy meal for those sea food lovers. I will be back. Now I'm headed over to Mora Mora for ice cream which is right across the street.

Like others, we were waiting for the ferry to Seattle just about supper time. So we strolled in and were greeted pleasantly. I had the fish and chips and really enjoyed it. They also had a nice selection of beers and wines. The waitress was good-natured and competent.

Had the fish and chips. Light breading, which I like. Came out hot. A little to much red cabbage in the cole slaw for my liking, but that is a personal preference. Good service. Nice selection of beers. Not a lot of choices in Kingston, so this place is not bad. Kind of a local bar, where anybody can sit... More

Sitting in the Ferry line and getting real hungry...My husband and I thought we could skip breakfast and make it to Seattle for a nice Sunday brunch with our kids.Thought about more coffee... and donuts but walked across the street and discovered Drifters...I ordered three pieces of fish no sides and a cup of chowder for us to share. Yum!... More
