We stopped by for a late lunch. The Diablo burger was truly excellent. They use organic grass fed beef in their burgers. The only disappointment was the fries. They were mushy and greasy. Neither of us can recommend the fries.

Very good food. Higher in price compared to other restaurants but worth it. Sometimes difficult to get in without a bit of a wait.

Our party of five made reservations and had a lovely window table seat looking onto the Commercial Avenue. A good selection of wine and beer (no cocktails) incredible appetizers and the only burger I've ever found with pan-fried oysters on top! Everything was absolutely fantastic;...More

We chose based on the reviews, but I wouldn't tell anyone the food was great. Eggs were fresh, service was friendly but toast didn't melt butter. The sausage gravy and biscuit was inedible; the gravy was thick and tasteless, served cold and grilled biscuit tasted...More

Went with friends before our yacht voyage. The staff were pleasant and food was delicious. Lots of vegetarian options. Beautiful seafood options. Dinner took more than 45 minutes but the company was good so it wasn't a problem for us.

Was recommended by the BNB we stayed at and it didn't disappoint. Apparently it's an old favorite, but the menu doesn't seem old-fashioned. We enjoyed sitting outside on a very sunny day.

The restaurant is noisy and the tables are VERY close together. It is great for 2-4 people but not great for larger parties. Also gets quite warm due to close seating. Food so far has been pretty good.

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.
