Modern Coastal Cuisine
Casual Fine Dining

Enjoy casual fine dining directly above the Gulf of Mexico, and experience a modern coastal cuisine of seafood, steaks, pasta, small plates, crudos, homemade desserts, hand crafted cocktails & more. A pioneer restaurant who brought the artful craft of crudo dishes to the Greater Pensacola Area and its surrounding coastal villages.

Our dishes are all meticulously prepared with fresh and predominately locally sourced ingredients that all pay homage to DRIFT’s keen focus of offering Pensacola Beach a modern and healthy alternative to fresh land & sea plating. Our creative cocktail menu and carefully selected wines are just as vibrant and edgy as our culinary counterpart. With master mixologists that utilize only the freshest fruit, vegetables, herbs, and spices, we craft our signature cocktails to playfully highlight every bite.

Share a DRIFT experience like no other. With a sleek and modern design of our indoor and outdoor Gulf front dining rooms and bars, guests can choose to dine inside or outside on our outdoor deck overlooking the breathtaking views of the Emerald Gulf Coast in a relaxed and casual setting.

If you’re looking for a more upbeat, beachfront vibe with live entertainment, check out Casino Beach Bar & Grille downstairs, just steps away from the beach.
