Driftaway Cafe is a Seafood Delight

Review by: Michael Stern

“Welcome! Are you ready to unwind?” asks Driftaway Cafe, a Sandfly restaurant where the cuisine is casual-coastal and the music is live and al fresco (weather permitting)!

This is a fun, laid-back place, but that takes nothing away from the seriously good seafood you will eat here.

What to eat at Driftaway Cafe in Savannah, GA

The seafood

One day’s special catch was grouper, surrounded by a buttery veil of crumbs, topped with hunks of crabmeat and semi-melted Parmesan cheese: a fabulous mix of flavors and textures, abetted on the plate by grilled asparagus and cracked potatoes. That’s from the Entres section of the menu, which also includes shrimp & cheese grits, sesame-crusted tuna on garlic mashed potatoes, and sea scallops seared in a cast-iron skillet.

Sandwiches and Salads

Other sections of the menu include sandwiches: try the Skidaway fried oyster sandwich on Texas toast.  They also serve tacos, wraps, salads – I love the wedge, loaded with blue cheese and bacon.  Brunch items we recommend is the Jamaican French toast, which is dredged in dark rum cinnamon batter the Lump crab cake Benedict.


Driftaway is a bright, happy place, its decor an enthusiastic collection of seafood images, statuettes, and bibelots, its staff neverending cheerful way. It’s an easy taste of the Georgia coast.
