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

Driftwood has become our favorite "go-to" restaurant for lunch or dinner at least once a week because of chef/owner Mathew's original and constantly changing range of giant stuffed pretzels, thick soups and chowders, and other items. The Brussels sprouts are the best I've ever had. Combined with the great and changing selection of beers, it's a great stop in Plymouth... More

I saw this restaurant on Triple D a couple of weeks ago. I have to admit I have been to a few restaurants that Triple D has gone to and frankly wasn't impressed. I was visiting the Plymouth area and have been to most of the restaurants in the top 20 on Trip Advisor. Fortunately I didn't read the reviews... More

Anyone one who is a fan of Diners, Dive ins & Dives knows that triple D goes to some great places. Sorry to say not great. The website menu is not up to date. The actual menu has about 16 items total. Plus they did not have the signature item [Philly cheese steak stuffed pretzel]. The fries were really good.... More

After reading the reviews here and other Diners, Drive inns, and Dives my family was very excited to eat there. First, the menu is not the menu posted. It is very limited. We asked if this was the full menu and we were told, yes they shorten the menu for the summer. There were not any pretzel apps only a... More

Great place relaxing atmosphere. The baking pretzels are to die for. Great service however bench uncomfortable to sit on. Window seat nice to sit and enjoy the sun. Should add cushions to the hard seats though.

Everything they said on the Diners, Drive through and Dives TV show is true. This place is great. Be prepared to wait but the wait is worth it. The stuffed pretzels are to die for and the left overs are just as good, reheated the next day. Even as a shared item we had 1/2 left over. They are huge... More

Went into the 200 degree restaurant for drinks, then waited for 20 minutes to even get the first round!! The waitress was rude and not attentive. Left us waiting for another twenty minutes for our second round and then they're was almost no rum in our dark and stormy. When we asked for a replacement drink she told us it... More

I've been going to this place for a while. The menu changed some after the triple D visit. Sure, come here for a stuffed pretzel. But come back for the Mac and Cheese. That's the hidden gem on the menu.

Big craft beer selection and awesome mixed drinks. Trying the stuffed pretzels, which are huge and filling, is a must. Great place to relax and enjoy some adult beverages.
