Traveling with food restrictions (allergies/gluten-free) is challenging. The Drift Inn has a very inclusive menu and knowledgeable staff that made dining out a treat! We had 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) here during our stay in the area and was delighted each time. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to try more dishes. Highly recommend!

We met a friend who recommended this restaurant for lunch. It was wonderful. The waitress was extremely personable and the food delicious. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and admired the umbrellas hanging from the ceiling. It turns out the owner loves decorative umbrellas and was only able to fine the ones on display from Italy. We highly recommend the Drift... More

Great staff and music. Food was pretty good. Halibut was dry but we were offered a replacement meal and not charged for the meal. Crab ravioli was fantastic!

There's a bar you can sit at and pleasant, private booths. The girls serving were very cheerful and polite and the food excellent with specials and an extensive main menu... More

For lunch we had soup and berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream - Yum! I highly recommend anyone try them at least once. We... More

I had several lunches and dinners at the Drift Inn in April. The meals were fantastic and menu had much variety so I just kept going back. The dining room/bar are open and the area has an eclectic and fun decor that has a cozy feel. There is a view of the bay from some tables. I enjoyed sitting in... More
