Always amazing!! It's our hangout.
Restaurant was over booked. Kitchen and bar were very slow. Spent over 2.5 hours for dinner that shoudl not been more than 1.5 hrs
Every meal we have eaten at Drift has been excellent. Service and ambiance the very best,
Highly recommend dinner or lunch at Drift
Scallops were divine! Deviled eggs and jalapeño hush puppies were absolutely delicious. Service is always impeccable. Brought 2 friends for their first meal @ Drift. Their experience was fabulous! We will all return soon.
Our fish and chips were very good. Our server did an excellent job and was very kind. The restaurant is very well decorated and we always enjoy it there.
Food is fantastic-- interesting menu. Our server was knowledgeable & pleasant, but drinks took a long time, and server was slow to close us out. We'll be back though for sure.
The food should match the amount spent. In my opinion, that did not happen. While the food was 'good' it was not 'great', however the price tag was one for food that was 'great'. Would not spend $150 on a dinner for two there again for something that was just 'good'.
Fish and chips were over cooked, lobster in lobster roll was tough. The food is too expensive to not be perfectly cooked.
The entree was very good. My cocktail was poorly made, watered down. The tiramasu dessert was poorly made.
Never a disappointment, food quality of service and knowledge staff always exceptional
For Georgia the seafood was great. Service was excellent and the kitchen was accommodating. Layout and open kitchen makes the restaurant a bit loud but not an issue with conversation. Everything was fresh, hot, and well prepared.
Always great! Love talking wine with Paul!
We were very disappointed in the quality, taste, and cleanliness of the food. The grilled shrimp on the Caesar salad were dirty (so unappetizing so the shrimp were just pushed aside with the rubbery shaved Parmesan cheese, and brown spotted and wilted romaine); the fried shrimp for the Po Boy was so heavily breaded that it was impossible to determine as to whether any real shrimp was even there, the fries were burned and very greasy. The food was very bad.
Another patron fell (second time I’ve seen this happen at Drift) and none of the employees helped him-just like the first time several months ago. Both times it was other patrons dining who jumped up to help.
We’ve tried (and tried!!!!!) to like Drift but it just isn’t happening. Disappointed to have to write this review
Good except for slipping on water on my way out.
Amazing service to every detail. Wonderful for a special night out.
Food is flavorful but portions are very small,especially given the prices for the entrees.
Everything about our visit to Drift was outstanding - from the personalized menu with anniversary wishes, to the superb staff, and, of course, the incredible food!
We enjoy having lunch and brunch at Drift. Thanks for opening it back up during the day.
The setting is beautiful, but overall I found the food extremely salty and overpriced.
pretty good.could do with a few changes but nothing serious.Oysters,of the 12 6 were very small,3 were fairly small, and 3 were good size.The soup was very good as were the clams.
Drift has become our favorite food spot. Trey was an outstanding server and his suggestion of the Smooth Sailing cocktail was spot on. We had the Bienville Oysters to start (cheese, shrimp, and bacon on top of the oyster). I had the scallops (tender, buttery and perfectly seared) with the Brussel sprouts (carmelized greatness). My wife had the sea bass (that evening's catch of the day) and it was flaky and flavorful with a side of the roasted cauliflower with pine nuts and currants.
After a lovely lunch we can only be positive. We hope the ambience is as enjoyable when filled with all those oyster lovers taking advantage of Drift's Tuesday specials. When my wife questioned the soup of the day versus their clam chowder, the waiter immediately brought samples for her to taste. Hush puppies were a nice accompaniment. My oyster po-boy had all the fixings, including the inhouse hot sauce and oysters that were crisp on the outside and had a creamy interior. Wine was pricey and was premium quality. We will be back.
I had grilled fish tacos and they were delicious.
Very enjoyable and food was excellent.
Service was great and staff was more than happy to explain the menu and help us with our selection of oysters. Food was a little pricey but went there knowing that. So if you are wanting a good meal in a relaxing place this is a good place to good. Just be ready to spend at least 20 to 40 per person
Our server was not friendly at all. Normally the servers there are very friendly, smiling, and polite. The lady we had took a very long time to take our order and she was very bland in the interaction with us.
For seafood, the best around Atlanta north. Not cheap but great food & service.
Food fresh and flavorful, ambiance is okay for a seafood place. Grouper blackened had a nice tezture and not overdone. The accompanying sauce was very flavorful. Nice selection, although they were out of Red Snapper and Lobster on a Saturday evening. Do think . rolls/hushpuppies should come with the meal and not be an extra charge.
It was an amazing experience. 99.9% amazing. A couple ordering snafus because the server heard us wrong due to the noise level. Otherwise, a perfect night.
Very loud and we had a looonng wait for food . Great service when we had and they did a surprise desert for our 50th anniversary. Advice don't go on Friday at 7
Food was not at all what was described in menu - even after sending back still did not come back correct.
Food was very good albeit overpriced a tad too much. $35 for a small to medium sized piece of Black Grouper an a same sized bed of ?polenta? No salad, no bread, no veg (unless the 6 or 7 shavings of something on top was counted. Same with the cod fish and chips, more French fries than cod and lets face it, that's not a pricey fish yet it was pricey. Again, food was very good, service was excellent but $135 (incl 18% tip) for 2 fish fry and one piece of grouper. One beer, one iced tea and one vodka on the rocks is excessive.
For starters our waiter was a little twit. He got wine and appetizers then disappeared for almost an hour. Finally flagged down the manager who took our order. Food came out, but no one checked how it was. Wife's fish was overdone and cold. French fries were overdone and cold for everyone. Wife complained and manager comped her meal and gave us all free desserts. Nice, but never should have happened. Been there before and had good service and good food. Don't know what happened, but for the cost of their food, shouldn't ever have that kind of bad service and mediocre food.
Overall we had a good experience with the exception that for a $35 entree, the fish was overcooked and not a great piece of fish. Wine list and drink options are great and the patio had a nice vibe. I would not come back here for dinner, but instead drinks and apps at the bar.
Our waiter was kind and diligent, but kitchen was extremely slow. Fish was over cooked and dry
Oysters were disappointing & pricey!! Service was awesome...very informed & transparent. Hardly knew he was there. Table was awesome!! Thanks. Still pretty loud. Had a great time!
Food was ok not like up north fried clams with belly’s very disappointing dry and over cooked six clams only
Calamari was great Fishman’s plater was good but portions was not enough
Can’t fill up on fries alone
Excellent dishes, attentive service.
