My wife and I ate here our last night in St. John. We heard the burger was great and we had to stop by and try it out. Made it just in time for happy hour and got to meet David and the burger lived up to the hype! Yum!

We visited during Happy Hour today and had one of the best burgers ever. The ribs were fantastic too and all at a good price. The burgers were only $5.00 during Happy Hour, which is a good deal on the island IMO. The burger meat was fresh and flavorful. The ribs were tender with a very tasty BBQ sauce. The... More

We first visited Driftwood David's in July earlier this year. When we returned on this trip in September this was the first place we went to after a day at Trunk Bay. In our opinion the must stops when visiting St John are Trunk Bay, Driftwood David's and St. John Spice. David had some great suggestions for our time on... More

We stopped in for happy hour and got to know David, a fellow southern from NC, and had some fantastic ribs and a great burger! The burger is a true burger! A freshly made patty! And the ribs have a sweet, tangy and a bit spicy sauce! I could have had several of those delicious ribs! He can count on... More

We stopped at Driftwood Daves during happy hour. Yummy! Good food and drinks. Dave is a cool cat. They have great $5 burgers during happy hour and tasty ribs. Location is good too, it is on the way as you are walking to Mongoose Junction. Stop by and get some cheap drinks, you wont be disappointed.

We dined in here and although we were okay with the food, Katie and the cute lady in the kitchen saved the day. They were friendly and professional and kept us happy with great service and the lady in the kitchen did make killer ribs!

We tried two days in a row to get here, and the place was closed. We finally saw it open on the third try, and were practically the only ones in the place. We filled an entire porch (large group) and enjoyed great service from our friendly waiter (I guess it was David?). The food was really good. Prices were... More

A group of us stopped in for a late lunch and drinks. We had the pleasure of being served by David himself. The special of the day was a pulled pork sandwich, which was one of the better pulled pork sandwiches I have had. The Danish ribs surpassed my expectations as well. The meat practically falls apart on its own.... More

My wife and I were advised by some friends of ours to go try Happy Hour at Driftwood David's and the drinks were great and prices right.
