Ok, so I love this restaurant. But there are some inconsistencies that nearly made me cry, because the expectations were so high from previous meals here. I love their burgers, oysters, stuffed pretzels, mac n cheese, bloody mary's, wide array of beers... but I did not like the Egg Benny that I had. It's tight, and when there is live... More

Was looking for a place to eat on a Friday night, and the reviews of this place sounded great. I love eclectic, different menus. And the menu was truly eclectic. I had a tasty arugula salad, and the boys liked their burgers. The shoestring fries were also very good. We started, though, with calamari, which was very plain. The sauce... More

I have only recently (8 days ago) moved to MA and I have already visited the Driftwood four times. This is a quaint little pub with seating for maybe 60 people. They have some great beers on tab. The incredible thing is that for such a small venue the food is great. You have to try to stuffed pretzel!! Plus... More

Don't let the name or type of location fool you. We were here on 01/01/2014. We almost fell for, "Maybe we should go somewhere else...". Am I glad we stayed and gave it a chance. The food was absolutely off the charts for a pub/tavern! There was only server and she did an incredible job. I highly recommend eating here... More

A traditional pub atmosphere, the unique food and craft beers selection make this place a fun place to dine. Our starter course was the clam chowder and it was so good! This is a must try! The craft pumpkin ale beer we order was refreshing and it pairing very well with every unique dish we order. We order a couple... More

Went there last night (Thursday) with hubby and was very pleased with the food and service! We will go back again. I had the Oyster Chowder, yummy, wonderful flavor profile with a fried oyster on top! and the calamari, the best I've had in Plymouth! It was very tender breaded in a blue corn tortilla crumb and fired of course.... More

If Sam is your bartender, ENJOY! She works it. We had deviled eggs (delicious), the famous pretzel, 10" Kobe hotdog, the coconut macaroon dark chocolate desert...and ate every bite. Food is as ingenious and it is delicious. A little loud for general conversation but Go there!

Great addition to Main St. We've stopped and had drinks on a weekend afternoon a few times and on occasion there is a someone playing guitar and singing which we love. The pretzels are huge and yummy, but the sandwiches we had recently were skimpy on the cold cuts. Our friend enjoyed the daily pretzel that we had as an... More

Started off well with their delicious Driftwood Fries. Some of the best I've ever had. Not so good after that. Service was VERY slow. It took forever to get our food. When we did get it, the food was disappointing. Hamburger was bland, the stuffed pretzel was mostly dough and the Galumpkis were very salty. To top it off, a... More

2nd time here.. Just as impressive as the first. If your with a larger group plan on everyone ordering something different and doing a tasting menu.. Don't forget to order the yuca fries..
