We would just have preferred if they had seated the enormous group of children literally anywhere else but beside us...

Disappointed, my husband looked forward to having Bouillabaisse, fish stew. He's had it many times in different restaurants. It came with 2 very small shrimp, clams and scallops. There were small (thin 50 cent piece size) fish with skin on them. The fish appeared to be scraps from fish they may have filleted for other diners. Picking off the skin was messy and hardly worth the trouble. He ended up hungry. I had the Ahi tuna which was delicious. I was asked which sauce I wanted and couldn't decide between 2, so I asked for a little of each. I received 2 little cups which hold about a tablespoon of sauce. When we got the bill we were charged $2.00 for the extra. Disappointed.

If these folks are doing anything wrong they’re very good at concealing it. I was in the restaurant & bar business for 17 years and I’ve got a very critical eye, can’t help it.
From the minute you walk in the door until you leave it’s all done right, and obviously not by accident.
BTW, very interesting and unusual drink menu.

Drift is one of our absolute favorites in or near Marietta, GA. Food and service are excellent. Very busy and a bit loud but so worth it!

You need a new chef. There were crackers in the chowder and the clams tasted old, no flavor. The mixed fried seafood platter was over cooked and dry. Calamari appetizer same as above. Very good beer but why so small?

Second time there. The first time my wife ordered scallops and proclaimed them the best she had ever eaten. Went back for her birthday and my daughter's. Same waiter (whose name I do not remember) who was excellent both times. I ended up getting the grouper and it was excellent--or as my daughter said, "Dad won dinner." We also had the crab fried rice which was also very good. Highly recommend.

The occasion was a significant wedding anniversary. Our waiter, Chris, couldn’t have been nicer or more efficient. We have dined at Drift previously, and the food has always been outstanding. In this case there was no difference in the quality of the food or in the attentiveness of the staff. Highly, highly recommended. This is the neighborhood gem.

We had a salad, chowder and black grouper. The salad was fine but the others had a mysterious taste/flavor. From a service perspective our server took the signed check/bill before we left. Rarely does that happen and when it does its at a lower level type restaurant. Overpriced for below average tasting food. On a positive note, we did stop at the bar for a drink prior to being seated and enjoyed that experience. Probably should’ve stayed there.

Service was perfect. Oysters were wonderful. Crackers served alongside oysters were stale - asked for another serving thinking they would be better but they were just as stale. Many were broken. Lump crab dip is very good but on the salty side. This is coming from someone who likes salt. Bread served with dip is excellent. Beet salad was good.

My daughter's birthday was made extra special by the beautiful birthday dessert that Caleb brought, out!!
