This is the second time I’ve gone. I didn’t like it the first time, but my friend was dying to go. We both had the fish and chips. The fish lacked taste, the fries were mushy and the coleslaw was dry and tasteless. Both of us will not come back and will share our opinion if anyone asks

I have eaten here several times before and had a delicious meal. However this time I ordered fish and chips. Both the batter on the fish and the French fries were grease soaked. The batter inside was gummy. They let me order something else to replace this so I ordered the peel and eat shrimp, which I had before. Even that was off...did not taste fresh. It was definitely an off night for them.

Excellent ramen meal as part of the Tuesday special menu. Loved the yakitori and the tonkatsu ramen dish. And the smoked old fashioned is always a great drink (possibly three).

Service was timely and not over attended. Definitely one of the best seafood restaurants in North Georgie.

Possibly due to heavy rain and it being Winter Break, the restaurant was very quiet. We enjoyed the atmosphere, fresh seafood, and attention to detail. The restaurant is beautiful. Music played quietly in the background allowing us to engage in conversation. The calamari was a highlight. It’s pricey, but worth it. I look forward to dining there again. I suggest making a reservation if dining during the dinner hour.

When we arrived the restaurant had many available tables. The hostess sat us at probably the worst table in the entire place. Last table near the restroom. Kinda of lost my appetite right then. Pretty restaurant from what we could see from our walk to our table. Server was helpful picking out the bottle of wine, she poured one time, my husband poured the rest as needed, oysters came with 3 crackers, dinner was warm, no bread to accompany the meal. Nothing to recognize a birthday dinner.
Celebrating my birthday was a real let down.
Sorry drift for $140 dinner tab it fell short

I have been to this establishment at least 6 times in the last 3 months. Customer service and the food was always excellent, except on Sunday. The food was excellent, however the customer service was horrible. The waitress didn’t not check on us in a timely manner. My drink sat at the bar for an extended period of time other waitress filled our water glass after they were empty for a long period of time, and what top it off I received noticed from my bank of the charge of my bill, but it took her at least 10-15 minutes later before we bought the receipt to sign. That made me fill uncomfortable because I didn’t know if she wrote down my credit card number or not. I’m thinking about not returning because of this last experience which is a shame because the food is excellent and the customer service in the past was also was excellent.

I didn’t want to leave! The smoked old fashioned was perfectly crafted with a dehydrated slice of lemon and one blueberry. Served with an oversized cube of ice. Delicious! The Branzino is a MUST with the Brussels on the side. You can’t go wrong with the large selection of oysters on the half shell. Drift remains on my list of top seafood spots in and around Atlanta.

We ave visited several times in the past and have always loved it. We came in on Valentine's day and the service was extremely slow. Our drink glasses sat empty the entire lunch. I ordered desert and then had to cancel it because they never brought it out. When they did bring our drinks, they were only half full. When I am paying $15 for a drink you do not need to stiff me with a glass half full. My bill for a party of two was $167.00 for lunch. Now when I'm willing to drop that kind of money, the service needs to be on point. We probably won't be back for a long while and it is a real shame.
