This is the place to try Stuffed Pretzels and their fries as well! Scrumptious. It is usually busy, which means it's noisy and it is small inside! If you enjoy good food but not the noise...order to go and find a scenic place on the waterfront to enjoy! Minutes from the waterfront!

We stopped there for a drink after having lunch, but next time, I'd like to eat there as the sandwiches sounded interesting, as did the pretzels. The waitress was great and told us how to make the martinis at home, which I will definitely do.

Dim lighting. Could not hear my husband because music was too loud. Watched everyone around us get their food while we waited a half hour. Waitress kept saying it was coming. Even told us she saw it being plated then watched her clean two tables, bring a table their check, watched them pay, and still nothing. How long does a... More

We were pre destined to try this place , since we saw it featured on triple d. It is a non pretentious spot, small and easy going. The house frys were to kill for as was the stuffed pretzels.

This was another DDD find. We love going to them wherever we visit. Not disappointed at all. It is a very small place but the food was incredible . The service was fast and the wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back when in the area. Hopefully real soon.

The fries are unlike anything you've had. They're the best fries I've had. Ever. Also the stuffed pretzels are unrealllllllll. Also there are fried ores which I didn't have but I'm told are a fave. I will return and most likely eat every single thing on the menu. Excellent choice :) Only drawback is that there isn't a ton of... More

My father is a big fan of Food network and saw the Driftwood and really wanted to go. Let me tell you, we were not disappointed. I ordered the steak and cheese pretzel which was so good and filling. My father ordered the fried oyster sandwich and loved it. The draft beer selection is great and the prices were very... More
