Driftwood is a must for us on our annual trips up north every year. Excellent food, friendly & attentive staff. We look forward to stopping there every year.

Had fish there one night and was very good. Had same meal following evening and was not so good. Service was great both nights but would not go back based on the second nights meal.

Expected better based on other reviews. Food did arrive faster than expected. Table next to us spilled a drink with ice and wait staff just kicked the ice under table instead of cleaning it up.

The food was ok. My wife and I ate here twice on our recent trip. Both days food was good. Second day was better with the buffet. However both days the coffee was bad. Very weak.

Everything was just OK. Service, food, decor. Nothing was bad but nothing stood out either. It is right across from one the major docks for boats to Mackinac Island.

There were 5 of us in our party. Our entrees were the planked white fish, the fish in a bag, a strip steak and two of us ordered the white fish open sandwich. Both the planked and bag fish were quite bland and really needed more seasoning. The presentation of the planked fish was very beautiful but it was in... More
