This is a great bar with delicious food...especially the pork chop and mash, gave me a bit of home comfort after all the rice! The servings are huge and very tasty. The management is wonderful and always friendly and great service. The monkey balls are the best shots on the island and definitely worth a try. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More

owners are super nice, but the prices are higher than other places on the islands. Food is very good, but we would have ordered more drinks if we didnt have to find our waitress each time - no worries - we would definitely go back

They have a nice location, views and great atmosphere, the food is good. Sometimes when it is too crowded the service gets a lil slow, but if youre chilling with friends tis not that bad. Monkey balls keep em coming but pinas coladas are not good I dont recommend them. At night its pretty nice to watch the lights over... More

Just like other Utila waterfront bars this one is no exception, chilled, nice, friendly stuff, good drinks, and god, cheap. Nothing more to say. Try it out.

I had the joy of celebrating my birthday at Driftwood. I'd have to give the nod to Driftwood for the better burger if compared to their nearby establishments. And I'm not one for shots... but shortly after arriving in Utila my new found friends insisted I try "monkey balls". Must say I was not disappointed!

Even though the little island is full of good restaurants, we fell in love with this place. The food was excellent - the pork chops and the skewers were sensational - but the staff is over-the-top friendly and helpful. We had a great time drinking on the dock, and would stop in this place most days just for a few... More

We make it a point to visit Driftwood once on each trip - it's definitely the best food on the island but it is on the pricier side. I think their creamy garlic sauce could almost make shoe rubber taste good! They are known on the island for the fish stew, which we ordered to split between the four of... More

Lol Monki Balls are the famous shot this bar is known for. We went their several times after diving all day and the laid back atmosphere was welcome. It was so nice to sit out on the pier with a cold drink. Fair warning they do often seem to be working on island time so don't necessarily expect the speediest... More

This place is right on the water and has great views. My husband and I split one meal and didn't drink anything and spent about $36. I don't think it was worth that much money. Our server was nice, but the cook was late to work so we had to wait over 30 mins for our one meal to arrive.... More
