Tune was excellent. Lobster roll was also very good. The brussels sprouts were crunchy and tasty with a generous serving. Our server was very attentive and continuously checked on us and brought anything we requested to support our meal. Manager
also spoke with us about our meal. It was a wonderful meal to celebrate our 60th

Four of us dined outside this weekend. Service was attentive and everything you could hope for. My husband and I shared the salad with crispy shallots, the Parkerhouse rolls for the table, I had the crab cake appetizer as a main course and my husband had the fried calamari. We shared a creme brulee that had a scoop of sorbet on top. All of these were excellent, as was our wine. Our friends shared a salad and the lobster roll as their main. Lobster roll was clearly too small to share. They'll know next time.

This is a good place for seafood. Ordered several small plates, deviled eggs, AHA tuna, rolls and lobster bisque. All were great with the exception of the lobster bisque which as tasty but no lobster just bisque. Will definitely be back.

We have been fans of Drift since it opened. Both Seed and Drift are 2 of our favorite go to restaurants. The selection of dishes should appeal to most everyone and we have never been disappointed by any of them. The staff has always been well above average and have always made each of our dining experiences well worth the trip over from Roswell. In this unusually trying time for eating out, they have made an excellent transition to social distancing in the bar and restaurant and have not missed a beat in the quality of dishes being offered. We will continue to be long-time loyal customers.

Love that you can reserve spots at the bar now. Food was very good as usual. Bartenders were attentive, despite being very busy (which we were happy to see.) the Smoked Old Fashioned is the best cocktail in East Cobb. We’ll be back for sure.

oysters were very good but small which is expected this time of the year. Because of the oysters size I thought the price should have been adjusted down as well. My wife’s salmon was excellent.
