New owners and not much left of what we loved in the past. It took over an hour to get half of what we ordered.More

Being from Texas I had heard that it was owned by Texans, so we had to try it looking for good nachos, etc. Sadly disappointed, no nachos, no to most anything, settled for a sorry burger.More

Great burgers, ice cold beers and friendly hosts! Lovely over-the-water deck for sunny days, breezy noons or starry nights topped with a view to kill! If you're lucky, you even get to see some shooting stars on starry nights! 💫

Good place to hangout. Real good food. The grill master goes wild with the ribs. Thumbs up!!! Kids had fun in the trampolin. To release the heat just take a dive from the deck and ready!

Over the years that we have been visiting Utila, Driftwood has become our favourite restaurant. Excellent fish, meat carrying the USDA certification, friendly staff and a lively atmosphere on its partially-outdoors eating area. It's at the top end of Utilian prices. Expect to pay 2...More
