True hidden gem

Stumbled upon this gem I'm not usually a pulled pork kind of girl but it was the best lunch I've had in at johns. Ribs were heat too and key lime pie as good as florida.

This was our third visit to St. John and thanks to a few locals; the third time was truly a charm in discovering the best burgers on the island. We don't typically spend much time in Cruz Bay given our desire to disconnect from our chaotic lives by staying on the quieter side of the island. However, the passion in... More

Driftwood David's is a great little place to grab the best burgers and ribs on St John. At a great price. The wife and I kept coming back. Veggie Burger is so unique and so good. I highly recommend this place and if that isn't enough domestic bottles are only a $1 during Happy Hour. You just can't beat it.... More

Despite a busy day when his help failed to show up, Dave served us great food and drinks and still shared some great stories. This was the only place we visited where our family wanted to go back again.

Love the menu - very short and simple. Burger, ribs, fish sandwich... Everything $9 or less. We had a burger, 1/2 rack ribs, and key lime pie. All were fantastic! Highly recommend a stop to this little gem

only problem was that we only discovered it on our last day there. We were looking for a happy hour and dinner on the last day of our honeymoon and had tried all the places that were on our list to go to. After reading the reviews we thought we would give it a try. The reviews were right, Dave's... More

Thanks for stopping by Driftwood David's! I would have to agree with you on our Key lime being the best on the planet. I must give credit to Kelsey Daddow for making the magic happening with the tart filling and sweet crust she does all from scratch..Please visit again soon More
