    What a fabulous restaurant for Father’s Day or any occasion! The drift was amazing! Huge Shrimp Cocktail, tenderloin and seared scallops! The food was exceptional right down to the garlic and herb butter with warm bread! If you haven’t been to the drift make a reservation now!

    Pre-Fix menu was not that great with the options. The crab cakes were very small had more stuffing than crab. Shrimp Cocktail seasoned to perfection could’ve given more than 3. Didn’t really get that on the lake/waterfront vibe. Server Emma was very nice & pleasant. Overall it served it’s purpose for our party of 9 for Father’s Day.

    Far removed from a "Hallmark" holiday, Fathers Day was made a celebration of a unique relationship, as well as an adventure in the choices of dishes offered.

    Was seated in a timely manner to reservation time. Food was delivered in a timely manner. We were sitting on the 2nd floor elevator was not functioning on the way out which caused an issue for some elderly guest on the 2nd floor.

    Our Father’s Day brunch was a great experience. We have dined at Drift several times in the past. Sundays experience was over the top due to our waiter Jerod. Top notch attention and conversation.
