I am local to Savannah and have always heard of driftaway cafe but never gave it a try until today. I love food, love to cook and am very rarely impressed...
Great food, atmosphere, and service!First time here and not a single complaint.I want to bring my wife here for a date night!We are from Katy, Texas.
My friend and I strolled in for lunch, the place was packed! The lot was full, so we parked across the street. We were greeted upon entering and seated...
GREAT recommendation from our kayaking guide, Mayme. We came for late lunch, and despite it being middle of the afternoon there were still a number of full...

We go to Driftaway almost weekly because the service, food and bar is consistently reliable. We look forward to the specials but even the regular menu offers a good variety. Great fried green tomatoes, best salads for the $!

Ask for Deb!!! She's the absolute best! She is everything you would want for someone to take care of you while eating out. Funny, nice, quick, and very attentative. Hands down, coming back just to be around her contagious energetic personality! Oh, and it helps the food is amazing too. Oyster sandwich - 10 out of 10 stars from me!

I had the tuna tacos and they're always great. In fact, I've never had a bad meal here. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating (probably because I know many of them personally, but I have a feeling they would treat a person well regardless). Several craft beers are on tap, and the bartenders make excellent cocktails. A great place for a date, or to bring the whole family for a wonderful meal.

We first enjoyed the Driftaway 6 months ago, and it instantly became top-rated in our "we gotta come back here next time we're in Savannah" list. We made a return trip last week, and we were just as impressed as the first time. Great food, excellent service, and a fun, casual atmosphere. Can't wait for the next trip!

Salmon blt is the best we've had anywhere. Service is the best. Highly recommended and very enjoyable dining experience. Atmosphere and setting is great. Best to arrive early as it fills up quickly.

My friend & I recently enjoyed lunch. When we arrived we were met at the door & promptly seated. My friends tuna tacos were the best she's ever had. My fried chicken salad delicious!

The menu and service at Driftaway remain fantastic. Food quality is always high. Cannot wait to try the Sunday brunch again. Best locally owned restaurant in town.

Excellent service and superb food! The firecracker shrimp was lightly breaded with a tasty sauce. The wall and ceiling murals were gorgeous.

Broke away from my traditional salmon BLT sandwich to have one of the specials tonight, Tuscan Chicken. Oh my gosh, so good. The sauce is where you want to drag each bite through it.

Try the Firecracker shrimp! This is a local Savannah favorite. The chef is amazing. They have great fish tacos, steaks and crab cakes. Great date night dinner. They have indoor and outdoor seating on the covered patio and if you go on the weekend sometimes they have musicians outside for free entertainment. Inside there is a bar with seating or you can dine at a table. Try to get a window seat in the back. One of my favorite restaurants

What a great place to grab a bite. Excellent seafood and plenty of American classics as well. Great portion sizes, craft beer selection and value.

Third time I've eaten here and I would have given it 5 stars except for one BIG reason. Each time I've eaten here they clean their glass top tables with a horrible smelling cleaning spray that almost ruins the whole dining experience. Please stop, use something unscented. It is a cute place. Very casual as the waitresses wore cutoffs which didn't match the prices of the food. Started with the crab stew. It was too thick, with not much crab. We ate 4 different entrees, and each was enjoyed. But all of us were put off by the cleaning solution. Still it was fun and the food was good.

Sat on the porch and listened to live music with my wife and friends. The only way it could have been better is if we were over looking the water. Food was very good, the margaritas were a little week, but overall it was a great time.
