I had lunch here twice and supper twice. All meals were very good and reasonably priced. I had to be talked into the grilled pork chop - after all, it is an island and fish is king. The pork chop was massive, perfectly grilled, one of the best meals i had duting my two months on the island.

Always a favorite. The food and service have been consistently good over the years I've lived here. Am enjoying some of the new menu items added this past year; baked macaroni and cheese, the various new sauces available for dipping, and most especially, the cheesecake desserts.

Loved this place. Really friendly bartender and bar owner. Food was good. Right on the water. Played American country music and had good drink deals.

Great food at a reasonable price. The chicken kabobs are really good! One of my favorite places to eat. It's run by a couple from Texas, and they do a great job. If you like Kahlua, be sure to ask about their "Monkey Balls". (It's a shot.)

Beautiful large lobster tail and delicious sides. The best rum punch I've had yet too! Great location on the dock. We'll be back!

We visited this restaurant 3times and we love Seafood soup. Shrimps and lobster were excellent as well. Restaurant is under reconstruction in these days so expect only bit noisy atmosphere. Chairs are only plastic so don't expect luxury interior but food is great for valuable price.

Driftwood is a beautiful spot, the breeze from the water and good music puts you at ease the minute you sit down. Excellent food - a little more expensive than some of the other restaurants on the island, but worth it. The side dishes are as good as the main entree (especially the mashed potatoes!), everything was cooked perfectly. Tasty... More
