We highly recommend going here over any place in Cruz Bay! I had the burger and my husband had the fish and chips. It was amazing!!!

My wife, two kids (13 & 10), and I found Driftwood David's on Trip Adviser and we are glad that we did. We arrived around 6 pm and were served by Driftwood David, himself. He treated us with warm southern hospitality and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the fish salad.

We remembered visiting DD's during our last visit to St. John and wanted to hit it again on our last trip. So glad we did! We all ordered the ribs and my daughter added a slice of key lime pie. We liked it all so much, we decided to hit it again before we left. Great food!

If you're worried about the cost of eating out on St. John, try Driftwood David's. Really good food at reasonable prices. Their baby back ribs rock. And plenty of choices for the kids, too.

Toss the menu in the trash and order the ribs. I promise you won't be disappointed. Having eaten here for years, I was disappointed in the items that are no longer on the menu--lobster Mac and cheese and the pasta/clam dish. Driftwood David's is now a hot sandwich type place save for the ribs. He imports them from Denmark and... More

Our group had burgers at DD's and everybody loved them. David waited on us, prepared everything himself, and served us and we had a wonderful meal in a great newly remodeled space. Please stop and support a great guy serving great food. Everyone was upset we didn't have enough vacation time to go again everyone enjoyed it so much.

We came across Driftwood Dave's looking for a cheap place to eat and what a surprise. Dave was a trip and the food was simply, but delicious. I had a sweet potato veggie burger - best veggie burger I've had, hands down. Cheap beer and easy food. Give it a chance!

We eat key lime pie at every restaurant we have visited in the Caribbean over the past 30 years. A few years ago we popped into Dave's for a burger and tried the key lime. It needed work. But this year as we came in from St. Thomas we stopped for a quick bite and bam! He decided to make... More
