The dishes are really good. It is a little dark inside, but the interior is OK. The waitress is very friendly. I'd recommend it to my best friend.

Waitress extremely well informed about entrees. When asked about chowder she said its won two awards and the resturant has only been open for two years!! She sold us and we were not disappointed. Best oyster chowder we had in a long time. We made a meal out of a bowl. Great informal atmosphere. Mid priced.

We just went here to eat and after all the good stuff we have heard I was kind of disappointed. It started out very good with an excellent oyster chowder. And I should mention my wife did love her drink. If everything else was that good I would have loved this place. My wife's salad with chicken breast was okay.... More

Went in for dinner the menu was not your typical Puvlik house food it was fresh and inventive. The specials of the day were really cool including a whole pretzel stuffed with philly steak WOW. Huge! We also had oysters on the half that were straight out of the ocean. Tap list was not as big as some other places... More

It's small, but packs a punch. Hand-cut fries and stuffed pretzel...yum. Definitely worth the wait. Seating is very limited, so expect to wait. Eaten here a few times and will continue to frequent.

Huge pretzel filled with steak and cheese standard on the menu. Awesome, too big to eat alone, great for sharing. Special pretzels also. Shepards pie pretzel and etc.

We had a group of 7 and on a Saturday night around 6, we had over an hour wait. I can honestly say that the wait was so worth it! Driftwood is very small but packs a punch with their delicious food. We had the steak and cheese pretzel to start with and a side of wings. The pretzel was... More

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
