The wait staff, as usual, were friendly and attentive. The food was good and the beer was cold. An excellent beer selection, by the way (although the beer menu is not always up to date).

This restaurant has excellent food and service. On a Sunday afternoon the staff was courteous, the food was delivered quickly and accurately and at the appropriate temperature. This dining experience is a superb value. This is definitely the place to go if you want to relax, experience great customer service and tasty food.

This place has a terrific weekend brunch. I have been here many times over the past few years. Recently I had a business associate in for the weekend and I knew where to have a great brunch. Driftaway didn't disappoint either. The meal came out cooked well and very well prepared. This is a great restaurant to have lunch, dinner,... More

We just ate at the Driftaway for the second time so it's time for a review. Just spent an enjoyable morning at the Sunday brunch. The menus included some nice combos involving fish and eggs. But the best things were homemade potato chips (always a pleasant surprise for me) and a live steel drum player which made me think for... More

This quaint and nautical little place is a little out of the way but SO worth it. There was live music on the front deck when we went - steel drum marimba style. Three more decks off different sides look out over Georgia palms and a waterfall. Angel waited on us and she was as sweet as her name implies.... More

My wife and I dined here on St. Patrick's Day in Savannah, which is always busy. The place was slammed but the service was excellent. The food was a 10 out of 10. I had the blackened Sea Bass and my wife had the scallop special. Well worth a visit. Our waitress was Kayley and she was extremely attentive. 5... More

Passed this place after My appointments. Decided to stop, I sat up to the bar instead of getting a table. I had a great view of the servers and customers. Some of the food I saw looked great. I had crab cake which was wonderful.

Thanks for stopping in and taking the time to give us a review here on Trip Advisor. This building was moved here from where Candler hospital sits on DeRenne Avenue. It was once a duplex apartment.

A friend who is African American and I stopped by for lunch. It was a cute place and we sat on the small outside porch. The waitress came and gave us water and menus. We were the second group on the porch. The other was a family of four. It took about ten minutes before she came back fro our... More

Thanks for stopping in. Our kitchen is tiny and can get backed up, especially with the Saint Patrick's crowds. Prejudice? Not a chance. I was raised by a strong African American woman that taught me how to cook, taught me southern hospitality and taught me how to love everyone. I would love the chance to speak with you more about...

Description
Driftaway Cafe specializes in "casual coastal cuisine" with an emphasis on flavor and fun!

Driftaway Cafe was created out of the desire to serve the surrounding neighborhoods and businesses fresh local seafood in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Our vision was to offer our guests a quick bite to "eat out" or the opportunity to stay and "dine" whether or not it is a quick taco with a cold beer or one of our featured nightly entrees with a nice bottle of wine. We were set to open on September 11th, 2001! What a horrible day that was for all Americans. We postponed our opening so that terrible day would not be our anniversary. Needless to say, our first year was quite a challenge, but with the support of God, friends and family we continue to strive forward everyday.

We specialize in made to order fresh local seafood dishes, fresh garden salads along with a variety of appetizers and sandwiches. Our talented Kitchen staff showcases their skills with nightly entree specials. We are known for our friendly atmosphere and our fun environment. We feature live music a few nights a week and have been blessed with a great staff and a regular repeat clientele!

Driftaway Cafe Is a locally owned restaurant located near the Wormsloe Plantation and the historic Isle of Hope. Owners, Robyn and Michele, have been in business together for the last two decades in Savannah. They work hard as a team and have developed a great staff that have been taught to treat each person that walks through the doors not as just another customer, but as a guest in their own home. They work hard to instill a passion for food, fun, flavor and family into everyone they meet!
