We went into Drirtwood David's the other day. Yum. The daily Sushi special was very attractive priced and was fresh and great. Love the addition. Located Just between the ferry dock and the national park right at the Lumberyard plaza. Put it on your list.

I am a sushi addict and this place was great. Great view of Cruz Bay, new owners were very friendly and you can actual create your own sushi.

This was our third trip to St John and it is absolutely a must for us each trip! The ribs and hamburgers are the best we have ever had! Our teens loved it so much we had to go again on our last day! Definitely one of our favorite places to eat on St John! Thanks Dave!

We stopped in here for a late lunch needing food after a long morning of hiking the Reef Bay trail. We were greeted warmly by the owners and chose a table for 4 in a breezy open air porch. They've got a pretty broad menu from burgers, chicken and ribs to a huge sushi menu-something for just about every taste.... More

We found this place on a review website and decided to give it a try. Very simple menu, but the food was excellent. Service was very friendly and helpful. They didn't seem to mind we walked in (twice) with a party of 7. We went once for supper. We came back for Thanksgiving lunch. 2 of us had the Thanksgiving... More

Elizabeth and David made us feel right at home when we stopped in for a late lunch. The $4 burrito was delicious and sizeable. Probably the cheapest and best you'll find on the island. The fish burger was simple. Not worth the $12 but this is normal pricing for St John. Happy hour starts at 1500 with $2 beers but... More

Coldest bottled beer I believe you can get in St. John. Wife and I ate here 11/15/2016. I had the ribs, and wife had homemade meatloaf (Dave said it was his grandmother's recipe) with fries and salad. Everything very good. Topped a wonderful meal off with a piece of home made key lime pie. Dinner, 3 beers, and dessert was... More

Annual stop at Driftwood Dave's did not disappoint. While I still do not like ribs, I love, love, love Daves. No meal complete without a piece of that Key Lime pie. Must admit, I must give the chocolate lasagne a try next time. Thank you from Mpls, Indpls, Cal fans!!!

My husband and I had the highly recommended BBQ ribs. They did not disappoint! We also enjoyed $2 well drinks during happy hour. As other reviewers have noted, this is a local spot, with good food, but it is not as glitzy and active as the waterfront bars. David really does seem to be a one-man band. He seated us,... More
