Since there was a recent review from September of 2014 we thought we would try the Driftwood with all of the wonderful reviews. It is definitely closed with a full sale sign. So disappointed.

Great local pub with one of the best pizzas out there. Took us two years to discover this local eatery as the new owners are having a hell of a time overcoming previous owners bad reputation. Wing Wednesday is my favorite for honey mustard wings....More

Based upon the reviews you would think this place was great! Jaco isn't know for it's food choices but this place is mediocre at best. There are much better choices.

We came at lunch time, no other diners was there. Friendly staff. Nice interior. We ordered a pizza; it was good but not amazing.
