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!

We went To the driftwood for the grand re opening Saturday night. The wife had lobster ravioli and I had the fish and chips. Both were amazing. I also enjoyed the great selection of wines. There are local wines from the sandbanks available and I had a great white wine from Niagara. There is both indoor and outdoor patio seating... More

Great gluten free pickerel dinner. Wonderful waterfront location. Too bad that it is closing for the winter.

Each time we have eaten here we have been very impressed with the food and it's presentation. Though the service can be a bit slow it is much better than it was. The lamb I ordered here recently was outstanding! Definitely worth a visit.
