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.

We moved to Plymouth Ma approximately a year and a half ago and have been making it a point to try new places to eat and drink whenever possible. Last night it was off to the Driftwood Publick House, located downtown Plymouth on Court Street. Have been reading great reviews of this establishment for a while so made it a... More

Thought it was going to be a typical brew pub but the food selections were great. Several things I could have tried on the menu. Had the sweet potato skins with bleu cheese and duck confit which was excellent. The clams steamed in ale with chorizo were excellent. Wish I could have tried the stuffed pretzels.

We visited here late July after a spot of whale watching, and it was a good place to relax and have a drink and a bite to eat after! I've been wanting to try calamari for ages, and thought I'd give it a go here. Delicious! I would definitely get it again, I loved the sauce that came with it.... More

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.
