We made reservations for 3. We arrived in time and were told to sit at any available table. We ended up sitting at a still dirty table. No one brought us menus. We sat and waited for 20 minutes. A waiter came with food to our table that was for another table and he never came back. I made eye... More

My elderly parents live on Hwy 15 and we were trying to decide where to take them for dinner. Having lived in the area for many years we have driven Hwy 2 to gananoque hundreds of times, and have passed this location. Tonight we decided to give it a try and we're delighted that we did. It's very accessible for... More

We arrived at the Driftwood Restaurant around 3 pm on Father's day. We were seated on the patio. We ordered a round of Caesars which were ok but only had one ice cube each. My wile and I each ordered the steak sandwich and our daughter ordered a pizza. We split an order of Calamari - it was ok. Our... More

This restaurant is located at a marina. The view is wonderful. Great food, I had the N.Y. striploin special, my wife had the salmon. The price was very reasonable. Christine, our wait person, very friendly. The Driftwood is a must try.

Went with three other couples for our anniversary dinner. Atmosphere is very welcoming . Service was quick, efficient and very friendly. Would recommend clam dip as an appetizer. I had the rib eye steak and it was fantastic. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Definitely going back

Great food, service and pricing. We ordered app's and pizzas. Both were very good. Talked to another group next to us and they were very pleased with their dinner too. Will be going back again very soon. New cooks and servers!

An absolute dump with a service level to match! The guest showers were covered in mould that had been there for more than a few months. We unfortunately had to have our boat launched there this year...had we not been there after the launch, it would have been on the bottom of the lake. What marina owner forgets to put... More

Had an early diner here. Great service and excellent food. I had the fish & chips with curly fries while my friend had pulled pork. Both were very very done & presented. Loved the homemade tartar sauce. The peanut butter pie was fantastic! Only negative was that we do not know who thought the live entertainment were. Good because the... More

July 10 2015... I had read something on the internet about this restaurant located in a small marina just about 15 minutes north of Kingston at 1753 Highway 2. It seemed to be an interesting place to have diner that night, so I decided to stop in and have a look see before heading out to our motel. It place... More
