Drifters Sea Isle City was opened 10 years ago by C J Mills, a long time Sea Isle City lifeguard. The goal was to offer some different food options for the locals and vacationers who spend time in Sea Isle City during the summer months.
Located downtown and surrounded by bars, drifters quickly became the crowd favorite, especially from midnight to 3 am, where diners lined up to grab a taste of Feel Good Food after a night out on the town.
Drifters Gourmet Sliders are the first must-try item on the menu. The Certified Angus Beef sliders range from the basic Cheeseburger to the Jalapeno Bacon Ranch Cheeseburger and the Peanut Butter Cheeseburger. If beef isn't your thing, there are fried or grilled chicken options, including BBQ Bacon Cheese, Cajun Ranch, Buffalo Bleu, and Chicken Parmesan. Other options include cheesesteak, hot dog, sausage pepper and onion, tomato mozzarella basil, and of course, the famous homemade crab cake slider.
Fresh cut fries are the other main menu item that beachgoers flock to order, with an average of 1000 lbs of potatoes a week being washed and cut during the summer in Sea Isle. The basic small, medium and large options of fries include Sea Salt, Old Bay and Cajun with the optional side of warm American and Monterey Jack cheese sauce.
