Cheesecake!!!

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

We went here for new years eve 2014-2015, the people are really nice, they let us stay to watch the fireworks, the food is awesome; and they helped my boyfriend to set everything for the proposal!!! It was beautiful, candles, fireworks, a great surprise for me, very romantic. We will definitely go back.

I only ate here once in two months, but it was a great meal. It definitely ranked as one of my favourite meals on the island. The menu was huge, in particular the side orders menu. There was something for everyone. I found it a little more expensive than most dinners on the island. The location is definitely more convenient... More

The Driftwood Café is adjacent to Hotel Margaritaville, so very convenient for me to spend afternoon and have dinner. The Café is owned/managed/operated by Sharon who originally from Texas and Jill originally from Canada. They have USDA meats, fresh fish and homemade items among other treats. The open café has dock for boats to tie up. Reasonably priced for quality... More
