It was perfect, service was great (we were outside), but it didn't make a difference in the service we received. I have always loved the Driftaway!!More

We love Driftaway!!! It never fails us. Food was amazing as was the service. Our server even let us know that 2 large parties had recently been seated, so we could order before them and get our food quicker.More

I enjoy the variety of choices on the menu. The fish and shrimp choices are great. So are the sandwiches, tacos, and salads. I come often for lunch and sometimes for dinner.

Southern mahi mahi with shrimp gravy was all right, but both the fish and shrimp were over cooked. Sat on the front deck for live music, but it reeked of cat urine and cats were everywhere, including tables and chairs.More

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!
