Pulled Pork Delight

My wife and I stopped at the Driftwood restaurant this June and enjoyed a wonderful time on the patio enjoying a delicious pulled pork meal with a broccoli salad and a local beer on tap. What an enjoyable evening! The staff was very friendly and the pricing was affordable!!

I've heard good and bad reviews about this restaurant and being Kingston East-enders I wanted to voice my own opinion and I'm glad I did! Best Steak in Kingston!, Great Service, clam chowder was piping hot and full of clams. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or living in Kingston.

Have heard good and bad reviews about this restaurant so thought I'd better check out this place myself! There have been many tries in making this place a success and I think it has finally made it! Great service, best steak ever and bake beans to die for. And the clam chowder was full of clams and piping hot. I... More

My ribs tasted like they were boiled and I'm not sure they even have a smoker. My fries were greasy and cold. I tried my friends pizza was unimpressed. I wished we had gone to woodenheads instead. The service was slow. Half hour just to get a drink and there were hardly any customers at the time. Last year I... More

Wood fired pizzas, great ribs done in their smoker, real French fries and a "taste of Tennessee " sides, great service and calming location, clean, The owners really care about catering to your senses. Prices reasonable... More

I would return to the driftwood again in a heartbeat- great food, service and... More

Great spot for a snack or full meal with original flair. Tried new local wine that surprised me. Burger, salad and fish n chips all had a special something. Will be back again soon.

I had a local draft beer from Gananoque that was delicious. The fish was fresh and the fries hand cut. The patio had great views.
