We always make a few visits to Driftwood when in SXM. This time, our family of 15 had a blast at Driftwood. Besides the great location for watching the planes land, the bar serves great drinks and food. I love the grilled garlic shrimp. They...make a great rum punch with many runs. There is a beach in front of the restaurant and access to the entire beach. Parking is limited, but you can park in the public lot by Sunset for $5.00. This can be validated for free parking. I have always found a spot to park… Try to avoid the days when there are cruise ships. They pack the beach and surrounding restaurants. I highly recommend a visit to driftwood. Enjoy?More

Love coming to Guy’s for pizzas, drinks/beers and plane watching. Good pizza, be sure to ask for their spicy oil to drizzle on it, thank me later. Cold buckets of Carib for $15 and excellent staff. The main bartender/server has been there forever. Does a...great job. Always nice to know I can come to Guy’s and have a chill afternoon of pizza, beer and plane watching.More

This is one of our favorites and visit often since it's right next door to where we stay at the Royal Island laPlage. It’s an outdoor bar directly on Maho Beach that serves up great food and fun times. A great place to eat, drink...and watch the planes come in during the afternoon and watch the sun set in the evening. Just be informed the facilities are portable so if you can get past the fact there's no indoor facilities I would highly recommend you stop in. Their chicken shawarma is delish. They're also known for their great pizza and their hot dogs and fries are also great. We come to the island every year and this is always a stopping point. Would highly recommend.More

Nice little bar on the beach where you can grab a drink and chat it up with the locals. Drinks are reasonably priced considering how much of a tourist trap Maho beach is.

We have come here many times and are never disappointed. The chicken shawarma is amazing, we loved the pizzas and the salad was surprisingly great - very tasty grilled chicken! Best frozen drinks (mango colada) on the island. They use real fresh fruit instead of...the juices most bars use. The service wasn’t great but I guess everyone just takes their time on vacation. We will certainly be back!More

Between 2pm and 330pm the large jets arrive at SXM. The driftwood is a great location to watch the planes landing. Great drinks, did not enjoy the pizza, friendly staff.

We loved the laid back atmosphere of this bar. The prices were super reasonable, the food was excellent, the beers were cheap. It was hard to go wrong here. The highlights were the shawarma and the whole red snapper.

Wife and I had lunch here on the first day of our trip while our room was being prepared. We both had the Jerk Chicken kabob plates which for $14 is a fantastic value. Two huge skewers, salad and rice n peas. Also $15 for...a bucket of 6 beers on ice is again a great deal. Service was a bit on the slow side and the place is a touch rundown/rustic, more of a place to get bombed than to have a nice meal. We stayed next door and they were always busy!More

The pizza was really good. We had it a couple of times during our week long stay. Was really puzzled upon 1 visit we ordered burgers just to be told they only had enough hamburger for 1 burger. Our server was not on top of...her game. I ordered chicken strips because they didn't have enough hamburger for 2 burgers, when it came without fries, I asked if I could order separately and was told they were out of fries. Yet others received fries with their orders after ours. Was not pleased.More

We visited for lunch and we all loved our dishes. I got what was called a hot dog. I loved it. For us at home, it would have been more of a beef smoked sausage and it was wonderful. 2 got burgers and were very...happy. Last guest got ribs and finished the plate. The food and drinks were great, the view is fantastic.More

Beer was cheap. There was special deals for buckets. Try Amstel Bright. Only sold on a handful of islands.

Yes. No sidewalk so keep an eye out for traffic but about 10 minutes walking.
