Best Fish Sandwich!

We went to Davids on our first night in St.John. We were not disappointed. Great Ribs, Great Coleslaw. Incredible twice cooked French fries! The Fish sandwich (Mahi Mahi) was stunning! The best I have ever had!! One of the best deals on the Island! David actually waited on us personally. He is... read more

After a day of snorkeling and hiking there is no better place for a hamburger or fish sandwich. Cost of food is reasonable and always good. Dave makes you feel welcome and the service is top notch. We will be back again next year.

Driftwood is an awesome place for a meal and a cold beer. We went for lunch and had a hamburger (fresh ground beef daily) and Danish ribs. Look up Danish ribs, we were surprised at the flavor and tender moist meat. The owner was from our state of SC, even went to USC, GO GAMECOCKS! Vegan and vegetarian meals available.... More

Driftwood David's has regular bar type food that you would would find in the States. They also have PRICES that you would find in the states. The ribs and the cheeseburger were both good. They were sold out of wings at 5pm, which I'm guessing means they were good as well. GET THE KEY-LIME PIE. The owner makes it himself... More

We ate here on our first night and was not disappointed. We wanted something simple, casual and easy. We sat out on the porch overlooking the town which was nice. The place was mostly empty but that worked in our favor. I had the hamburger sliders which were delicious and my husband had the fish sandwich which he said was... More

5 of us had early dinner at Driftwood David's. 2 ordered burgers, 2 ordered ribs, 1 ordered mahi mahi sandwich. Each was excellent. Wings were very tasty and dessert (key lime pie and chocolate lasagna) was a great way to finish off the meal. Glad we went. Will definitely go back next time we're on the island. Thanks David.

I came down to St. John on a vacation with my husband and kids. The views were beautiful but the food was a little expensive. Not Driftwood David's. We first picked this out because of the vegetarian options which we'd had previous trouble with (my oldest daughter is a vegetarian) along with the great prices. We went for dinner on... More

The food was great and the prices were even better. Great prices even for cocktails! It's a little tucked away place that not too many people know about. The service was wonderful. There wasn't a lot of food to choose from but what they do offer was great!

My wife and I ate here on our last night on the island. Had it been earlier we would have multiple times! The best burger I had on St. John! The ribs were top notch as well! Great happy hour deals and value. Don't leave without trying the key lime pie!
