Came here for early evening drinks and oysters, the oysters were very good and there is a good choice of draught beers and cocktails. The atmosphere has a friendly local feel. If you enjoy oysters and good beer, give Driftwood a try.

We met friends for cocktails and lunch on Sunday. They offer a decent beer selection, at least that's what my husband thought. The appetizers we ordered were great. Especially the steak and cheese pretzel...it was enormous and plenty for 4 to share. We had the Cuban sandwich and it was different but I don't think I would order it again.... More

Great beer bar, good service. Workers want to be there and promote the "owner's brand". That is, they share his/her vision. Almost everything made to order, phenominal pretzels, and good beer selection. Wished the had Red Hook ESB though. Visit this place; you will like it. Good brunch menu too.

Their website says they are open at 10 for brunch. They aren't. Also the atmosphere is not family friendly.

My wife and I had heard good things about the Driftwood Pulic House and Oysteria. We went on a tuesday night, just to get out of the house. The place was very quiet, as expected for a tuesday night. For a starter, I had the oyster chowder. This was just ok. It had some very firm chunky squares, i think... More

Friends had recommended this place and specifically the Philly cheesesteak pretzel. We went for lunch and were disappointed. We were the only ones in the place, long wait for the food which would have been ok if the food was great, it wasn't . Without the dipping sauce the pretzel was bland and uninteresting. Fish tacos had only a small... More

Just FYI it is a small place. The staff is friendly and there is a decent craft beer selection. However, the menu is a small daily special affair and they would not make items that were listed on the trip advisor menu sections.
