Nice lunch

I had the flounder plate my husband had the clam plate. They give you lots and lots of food I just wish it had a little bit more flavor. They were extremely busy when we were there but they turn tables over quickly and do what they can to get people seated. Can't beat the price.

This is diner food at its best. This is a little hole in the wall diner right on the harbor. The food is awesome and cheap. Generally there is a line out the door on weekends. The omelets and blueberry pancakes are must have dishes. They offer take out and are a cash only restaurant.

Based on trip advisor reviews, my husband and I went to the Driftwood for lunch. The place is a dump. We would've left immediately but, again based on reviews, we expected the food to make up for the lack of ambiance. It didn't. We each ordered a fish entree, my husband the scallops and me the scrod. Both were deep-fried,... More

It's possible that breakfast rates four-plus stars, but lunch here was terrible. My wife had the scrod plate and I did the scallop plate. Both were breaded and deep fried. That was the perfect way to ruin scallops and the scrod wasn't much better. After lunch, I used the toilet that was upstairs through some of the worst filth I've... More

If you want to run into locals this is where you go, the town meeting spot. I like the Driftwood Egg and english muffin with honey mustard sauce on it. Breakfast is the meal to eat here in my opinion, but locals are there every day for lunch. You never know what actor or famous person you might run into... More

Breakfast and lunch only. Though it is a bit tight on seating, the food is very good and always nice to see the familiar faces of the wait staff. They are professional and experienced and know how to treat people. We go there for breakfast and its one of the only places in the area that doesn't give you greasy... More
