The food and service were outstanding. It was our 30th wedding anniversary and they customized our menus with our name and Happy Anniversary — very nice touch. And they gave us a free dessert for our celebration — very thoughtful and unexpected. The only downside was that they sat us at what was probably the worst table in the house — a small table in the corner next to the bathrooms. But I guess somebody has to sit there.

I'd still recommend them though.

Our server could not find my credit card after he ran it. I looked for the manager to tell him I will have to call the card company and lock the card and his attitude was he could care less and showed no concern As I was about to call the credit card company our server finally showed up with the card.

We have dined at Drift several times, but this visit was for their four year anniversary celebration. There were special dishes offered and I enjoyed the lobster platter while my husband enjoyed the halibut. Both dishes were very good. The server was friendly and helpful, answering our questions about several of the menu items. She said she has worked at Drift since it opened and it showed. We wish there was a Drift in West Cobb where we live, but will continue to make the trek to East Cobb to dine at Drift.

Our hostess, Lisa, and our server, Cameron, were great! Both were friendly and courteous. We arrived early and asked Lisa if she could seat us earlier if a table opened.
She assured us she would do her best, and gave us updates as we waited at the bar.
She did seat us earlier and was very friendly throughout the process!

Cameron, our server, was professional, efficient and helpful with menu descriptions since it was our first visit to Drift House. He was attentive throughout dinner, and we couldn't have had a better server.

Manager stopped by half-way thru our dinner, and checked on us.

Great restaurant - tops for food, service, ambience! We'll definitely come back.

Making an Open Table reservation was easy. From the greeting at the door upon entering Drift to the last goodbye, my longtime friend and I were enthralled. We had a wonderful server, Casey.
She knew her menu well and her intuitiveness about when to approach our table or just let us sip, dine and visit was spot on. Her wine suggestions were to our liking as well! She is lovely and an asset to Drift.

Our Salmon lunch was deliciously prepared and exactly what we were craving! Thank you, Drift and staff!

I have eaten here several times before and had a delicious meal. However this time I ordered fish and chips. Both the batter on the fish and the French fries were grease soaked. The batter inside was gummy. They let me order something else to replace this so I ordered the peel and eat shrimp, which I had before. Even that was off...did not taste fresh. It was definitely an off night for them.

Possibly due to heavy rain and it being Winter Break, the restaurant was very quiet. We enjoyed the atmosphere, fresh seafood, and attention to detail. The restaurant is beautiful. Music played quietly in the background allowing us to engage in conversation. The calamari was a highlight. It’s pricey, but worth it. I look forward to dining there again. I suggest making a reservation if dining during the dinner hour.

When we arrived the restaurant had many available tables. The hostess sat us at probably the worst table in the entire place. Last table near the restroom. Kinda of lost my appetite right then. Pretty restaurant from what we could see from our walk to our table. Server was helpful picking out the bottle of wine, she poured one time, my husband poured the rest as needed, oysters came with 3 crackers, dinner was warm, no bread to accompany the meal. Nothing to recognize a birthday dinner.
Celebrating my birthday was a real let down.
