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

Just a tad off the beaten path of tourists is one of Cruz Bay's best local-flavored restaurants. While the hamburger's were highly recommended we went for the special of the day, a fish sandwich, and our new-found friends at the next table highly recommended the ribs. Both were delicious!

This place was very simple and relaxed. Driftwood David actually served us and was a very nice guy with some interesting stories. I had a fish (Corvina) sandwich that he recommended and it was awesome. He said that they don’t always get Corvina in and that it was more of a delicacy. My wife ate a chicken sandwich. They have...

Driftwood David's is a great casual restaurant. This was our second visit. We had the ribs and the fish of the day over salad. David took great care of us. Food is above great. Very reasonably priced for St John. Will come back on our next trip.
