Awesome place! Great american food! The venue is really nice! it has a awesome dock you can swim off from.

The baby back ribs were great! the burguer was a 1/2 chuck cooked on the grill by George himself! My kids are rather picky with food, but they asked me to go 3 times and we did. You can dock your boat on their dock and have away with a good time. Owner's usually on premises, service was friendly... read more

Over the years that we have been visiting Utila, Driftwood has become our favourite restaurant. Excellent fish, meat carrying the USDA certification, friendly staff and a lively atmosphere on its partially-outdoors eating area. It's at the top end of Utilian prices.

A bit on the pricey side, but big portions. English and Spanish speaking. Nice dock to relax on. Better than average food for Utila

The first time I went into Driftwood my experience was good but not great- I ordered BBQ chicken that was served to me off the grill but still cold in the middle. The lady working was really apologetic and immediately took it away and corrected it. I would have assumed she wouldn't have charged me for the meal or would... More

Great burgers, fish tacos. On the water. After a morning of diving it is a great place to get lunch and sit on the dock.
