Humuhumu’s description

Adrift is a modern-era tiki bar and restaurant. The primary focus is quality, classic tiki cocktails. The bar is covered in plenty of bamboo, the walls are lined with bamboo, and murals of elegant vintage-feel scenes of Polynesia are framed in bamboo, as well. Light comes from pufferfish lamps, glass floats, and a bit of fire for good measure. Carved tikis are found inside, and outside the building is flanked with metal tiki wall sconces and two large carved tikis.

I would echo the last few comments. We were in town for only a night and visited Adrift. We had a great time. The drinks were very good, but what really blew me away was the food. We had a Pu Pu platter and a Hawaiian plate. Both were incredible. The service was great and the waiter we had was more than ready to talk tiki. I happen to like the clean modern take on traditional tiki, so I dig the decor. I also really like their mug, even if it's a bit pricey. We were there on a slow weeknight, but the vibe was good. I personally think this bar is much better than its current overall rating.

Visited in December of 2017. I had read some reviews that were less than flattering so I went in not expecting much, which was a mistake because we had quite a nice time. The drinks were very good (wife had a Mai Tai and a Suffering Bastard while I had a Corn & Oil and a ...-), but the food was excellent. We had the Pu Pu Platter and the Poke. I wasn't expecting the food to be so good.

The bar was themed with Witco art, polynesian paintings, and some really great bamboo work. They went a little heavy on the puffer fish and there were a couple of Tikis that seemed a little too westernized, but neither of those elements detracted from the experience. Overall the bar is a nice blend of modern stylings and classic Tiki. We found it to be a very romantic setting.

The staff was polite and not overbearing, which is a big plus for me. I wish the Adrift Tiki mug was a bit cheaper. While it looked nice I didn't feel like dropping $65 on 1 mug.

Overall I would visit again and bring friends. If you are in the area I do recommend visiting Adrift, especially for dinner.

After reading a few reviews my expectations were lowered but we went anyway, and I'm glad we did. Great bar! No reggae to be heard in the hour or so I was there. All surf style stuff, I'm more of an exotica guy, but out was definitely "tiki. Waiter was awesome, friendly and helpful. Only negative I could think of was that I didn't walk out with a souvenir mug - they were very nice and good quality, butI just can't justify a $65 mug though. Bummer, they look pretty good!
