10BEST Says

Seafood, Best Restaurants, Outdoor Dining, Lunch, Brunch: Located in the trendy Sandfly neighborhood near Isle of Hope, Driftaway Cafe serves up seafood in a cozy atmosphere that features a surprisingly lush landscape with a quaint stream. The restaurant boasts a great selection of appetizers, including a fantastic tuna tartare, an ahi seared tataki-style tuna with black and white sesame seeds, diced cucumbers, scallions and a cucumber wasabi cream sauce. The sandwich menu has a variety of choices, including spicy tuna tacos, a Gullah oyster sandwich and a fried, grilled or blackened grouper sandwich. Driftaway also offers a number of classic coastal dishes, including pistachio encrusted salmon, pan roasted salmon and a seafood combo platter with flash fried butterflied shrimp and Gullah fried oysters. There are plenty of sandwiches, salads and entrees for meat eaters, making Driftaway the perfect choice for groups with differing tastes.

Breakfast/Brunch: First the bad news: Driftaway's brunch menu is only available on Sundays. Now the good news: the brunch is so delicious, it's worth rearranging your schedule to keep your Sunday morning or afternoon open. Located in the city's historic Sandfly area, Driftaway specializes in seafood, an influence that happily makes its way onto the brunch menu. The shrimp and grits--delectable, lightly fried shrimp on a bed of three-cheese grits with sherry cream sauce and andouille sausage--may be the best you've ever tasted. The Crab Cake Bennie, a take on eggs Benedict that incorporates grilled lump crab cakes with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, melts in your mouth. For those who don't like seafood, there are plenty of other tasty options, including the Myers Jamaican Rum French Toast and Sunday Fried Chicken.
