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...

The food here was awesome. We had a cheesy dip and oyster po boy and coffee. The service was sub par. Our waitress went on break for maybe 15-20 minutes...

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

My husband and I had the Baja fish tacos. Since I'm not a fish eater I asked if I could replace it with chicken. They where very friendly and accommodating with my request. The food was amazing as well as the margarita. Our server was fast, friendly, and probably the best service I've had on this trip. If we are in the area again we will be back.

If you're around Savannah, GA and want some seafood Driftaway Cafe is the place to go. That was honestly some of the best seafood I've ever had. I got the tuna tartar for an appetizer and it was by far the best tartar I've ever had and the Baja Fish Tacos were easily in the top 2 or 3 best fish tacos ever. The atmosphere was great and service was amazing. And finally I was surprised by how affordable it was. I would give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.

Food is always great. It's a neighborhood grill with lots of locals. We eat there at least once a week. Prices are reasonable & menu has great variety. Does get a bit noisy at dinner time. Definitely one of our favorite Savannah restaurants.

The staff were attentive and the menu offers something for everyone. Based on the interaction between staff and many customers, there were a lot of local regulars. That is usually a good sign, and it was at Driftaway Cafe. I had a great meal and will be back.

We asked some of the locals where the closest and best place to eat would be. Without hesitation, they said, "Driftaway". We went straight there, arriving at about 5pm. Only about three other tables occupied when we arrived; full an hour later. Ordered crab stew, salads, shrimp and grits, firecracker shrimp platter with sauce on side. All of it was wonderful. Price was reasonable. And our server was attentive without being annoying. We'll be back!

We were pleasantly surprised by Driftaway Cafe! It looks like an average restaurant and we expected average food. However, the kale salad with salmon was the most delicious salmon salad I have ever tasted! The salmon melted in your mouth and the vinaigrette was creamy! The atmosphere was also great, as we had a small waterfall outside the window. My friend would recommend the pesto chicken wrap.

Love this place! Savannah's best kept secret! The food is good, the service is good, the atmosphere is good! Not real fancy either. Go at off hours since its a local favorite and gets crowded at peak hours! But if that's what you like, that's fun too!

My wife and I have made Driftaway Cafe one of our favorite places to eat. We have had quite a few meals there and all have been amazing. A dinner special that we have had twice is the Honey Dijon Salmon with Crab Fried Rice. Amazing! The service has also been top notch every meal. If I could give them more stars I would.

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.

Great place, appropriately ranked as one of the best seafood restaurants in Savannah. I initially thought my entree a bit small, but appearances were deceiving and it was more than adequate. Lovely garden in the back, with limited seating. Definitely a place I'd return to.

Delicious food. Fresh fish. The best crab soup! Of course it is made with cream. The food is locally sourced. They have a full menu and starters and deserts. Lots of seating options to fit your needs. Want airconditioning? Sit inside. Want to be in nature? Sit outside in the upper or lower deck. They also have a screened in porch with live music.

Nice place to grab a bite to eat. The staff is fantastic. Food is good. The downside is that you best be careful walking across the parking lot without sunglasses or you may go blind because of the white Rock. Kids love the Sunday brunch, especially the French toast.

Nice spot for lunch, mostly locals so you know it's good. Fish sandwich (big!) Was so good you don't need the bun. Salmon BLT good as well. Great service.

Excellent food, mediocre waitress, loud restaurant The food was good which is why I gave it 4 stars. We are tourists visiting from north GA and decided to try this place out. We went on a Friday evening at about 6:00. It was crowded so we had to park across the street. The hostess sat us right away. Our waitress was just blah and unhelpful. Maybe she was having a rough day. Most of the wait staff are teens. The rest of the staff (aside from our waitress) seemed to be very cheerful.The tuna special I ordered was excellent and my daughter said her shrimp scampi was very good. Downside- inside the restaurant is very loud, tables are tightly packed in and it's hard to hear the person directly in front of you.

Really cute little place. The bar was packed with what appeared to be a "regular crowd". Nice sized menu, but definitely a cafe menu. They have Amaroso rolls for the French Dip which was amazing. The fries are pretty bad, but the home made chips were amazing. Definitely get those instead. Service was slow which is why 4 stars instead of 5.

One of the better places to eat in savannah that you don't need to go downtown for. Wish they would redo decor and clean better, but the food is delicious. Never had a bad meal there.

The food and atmosphere are wonderful. I just tried a new thing for me pecan chicken salad. It was delicious. Only downfall is parking and that isn’t their fault so should have giving them five stars. Thanks Robyn and Chelly are doing fabulous job. Thanks.
