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.

I have been here many times, but this meal was one of the best I have ever had. The oysters at 1/2 price were excellent. My friend and I split the soft shell crab and the wood grilled grouper. Excellent meal and our server (I believe her name was Rachel...?) was beyond par. I am a huge fan.

Visited Drift with the family for my wife's birthday - party of 8. Drift never disappoints! The service was fantastic due to our great server Casey, who we specifically request every time we dine at Drift. Drinks were great as usual, and everyone in our party loved the appetizers and their entrees. You don't need to travel to Buckhead or Midtown to get an exceptional dining experience! If you have not ventured to East Cobb to visit Drift, you are missing a real gem.

Portions were too small. For the prices, I would expect the lobster roll to be larger with a more generous amount of lobster. Rainbow trout was good. Peel and eat shrimp could use a few more shrimp.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. Jerad provided great service and food recommendations. His manager filled in when his attention was demanded elsewhere. The stone crab claws were a splurge but worth it (always pricey, but even more so here). The raw oysters were delicious but also a bit pricey. We ordered the salmon and mahi and had a side of hush puppies and braised collard greens. All in all, the meal was perfect. We will definitely come back.

We are special occasion diners and when we make the reservation we mention the event. In December we were there for my wife's birthday but it was not acknowledged with "Happy Birthday" upon arrival and a "treat" after the meal. We chose not to comment. A few days ago we dined at Drift again and had the good fortune of having our favorite waitress. After the meal she asked if we wanted desert and I informed her of our disappointment in December that the birthday celebration did not "happen". She apologized and promptly brought us the birthday treat that we didn't get in December. Of course the food was excellent.
