Driftwood has the best Caesars in Kingston. The food is fantastic (fish and chips are my favorite). The service is quick, efficient, and very friendly. The restaurant is a definite must for any occasion.

After reading these great reviews, my husband and I decided to try it out.. There were barely any people in the restaurant and yet our drink order wasn't taken until half hour after seating.. Even worse my husbands hamburger was uncooked and he threw up all night.. Will definitely not be returning

A couple buddies and I stopped in for the grand reopening, had a burger and fries they were excellent!! Great atmosphere, the patio and marina really makes it feel that you are a lot farther from downtown than you actually are. Looking forward to my next visit, next time Lobster Poutine!!

I've been there with a group of 4 couples on a Saturday night and for lunch with my 11yr old son on a Thursday. Both were fantastic experiences and I look forward to going back. Excellent food and some great local beers.

I took a party of 10 to the Driftwood to celebrate my son's college graduation that day! Fabulous food, terrific service and beautiful spot by the water to have all my family together on such a happy occasion! I would highly recommend this place and I will definitely be back soon!
