    Ambience is the winner here. The restaurant is beautiful and so is the view. The waiter was average. The food…is hit or miss. One of the dishes we ordered before was totally different than what was on the menu, they were going to fix it and it never came out. We finished the main dish and they hadn’t started it. Granted, they acknowledged it and then comped it out but we totally done so didn’t need it. They sent out a crème brûlée as service recovery but omg…it was one of the worse one’s I’ve ever had. The texture was off on the brûlée itself but also the whipped cream was whipped too much and was like the texture of butter. For the ambience and the price of food, this restaurant is very inconsistent. The drinks are always good though but that’s not why we go to a restaurant.

    The food was amazing but the service is what gets this 5 star review! We had the pleasure of having Bill M as our server! He went above and beyond multiple times while we were enjoying our meal! He read the notes I had wrote in the reservation and went out of his way to make sure all of our request happened! From moving our table so that we had a better view of the lake without us even asking, to never letting our drinks run out and making my husbands birthday so special! Bill’s upbeat and positive personality made our already great experience EXCELLENT! Multiple times throughout our brunch my husband and I discussed how this is the best server we have ever had at any restaurant! We will definitely be back and will hopefully have him as our server again! Thank you to Bill M for being one of the best servers if not the best that we have ever had!!!!!!

    We had just come from a very cold soccer game and I jokingly asked to be seated in a warm area. The hostess smiled and sat us right next to the plastic window and door that leads to the patio. I did ask for one of their floor heaters to be turned on and they were able to get one set up next to our table. Food was good but the bacon that I had asked to be very crispy came out not crispy at all. There is a difference between being fully cooked and crispy and I wish kitchens would get this right. Crispy shouldn't bend without breaking. Lol. Overall it was good.

    Arrived early but did not have to wait long for our table. The service was fantastic as usual and the food outstanding. Tired the Calamari fries as an appetizer and was pleasantly surprised, this was the best calamari I have ever eaten. The atmosphere is excellent and there is never a rushed feeling while dining. We will definitely go again!

    My family and I went to Drift for a Saturday afternoon brunch. Between the three of us, we tried the Drift burger and fries, the french toast with a side of candied bacon, and the bacon, egg, & cheese omelet with a belgian waffle on the side. Our meals were delicious. The service was great and the scenery was lovely. We are looking forward to the next visit.

    Drift is such a nice restaurant and both times there we have had a wonderful experience. Our waitress was a little slow getting to us, she was busy, and it took awhile to get our order in, but once she was there, she was excellent and very attentive. The food met all our expectations, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

    We have been wanting to try this since it opened and finally made out for my birthday last night. It's gorgeous inside with a view of the water from almost everywhere. The service was impeccable! The waitress kept our glasses full and answered all of our questions. She even had the bartender come over and recommend a red wine for my husband. The attention we received was fantastic. We ordered dessert and they brought us out a celebration dessert that wasn't on the menu. Both had candles in them for me to blow out. The food was excellent as well. The trout I had was stuffed with crab and had a delicious Creole mustard sauce on it. My husband's filet was perfectly cooked along with the scallops. All in all 10/10 highly recommend!

    Food - whipped garlic potatoes were very dry and had no seasoning. Oscar Filet was good. Lobster bisque, the lobster pieces were sweet and good but the actual soup itself tasted like a basic rue and had no depth of flavor. Espresso Martini was delicious but was very small pour even for a martini, like 4 sips. Ambiance - table was not leveled properly but the waitress did crawl under the table to fix it. Chairs were cheap and not really comfortable. Service - pretty good overall but ran out of water while eating and had to ask for fresh pepper as it wasn’t offered. Waitress very nice though. Value - Definitely not worth the $300 price, like not even close to expectations.

    We dined at Drift for their Valentines experience. We felt truly pampered - a rose for me, a chocolate kiss and a beautiful table presentation for us both. We had the best upstairs view of Lake Wylie from our table. Our servers were friendly and prompt. The food was delicious! The wine was shockingly expensive, but our waitress did tell us a bottle would be a better value than by the glass. Our error. We will definitely return to Drift and maybe even make it our Valentine’s Day tradition!

    Went for Valentine’s Day special. First two courses were excellent, small portions but good. Dessert course was just ok. Drinks were excellent and setting was excellent. This was first time going but assured myself I would go back again for regular menu items. Views were perfect.

    We had brunch on Sunday morning. The omlettes were great and really enjoyed the sticky bun as an appetizer. Also, server was very attentive and helpful.
