Great original food, cool location

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.

The terrace runs around the restaurant on three sides, so you can see and hear the marina. The food and service are quite good - we usually have the special panini, which has... More

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!!
