Great place, good food and very convenient to pull up on your boat and listen to the music on sat and sun. Fun times on the little Muskegon.

No place beats this one on a sunny, summer day! The view of the Muskegon River from the deck is perfect. A favorite motorcycle stop! Food is the usual bar food with fair prices. We love the chicken gizzards! There are bands outside in the summer months too. Check it out!

On a busy Sunday afternoon with a live band it does take a while for your food (45 Minutes). The food is very good and so is the service. It's a nice place with a great view and free live music on Saturday & Sunday afternoons in the summer

We had the wings and pot roast and both were delicious !! Sitting out back watching the boats go by was especially nice. Can't wait for the live bands on the weekends!!

Stopped for lunch at the Driftwood Bar and Grill after driving over the Mackinac Bridge. The bar tenders were also the servers. They were pleasant, but considering they had a rush of customers come in, we probably got less service than at other restaurants. I do not even remember being asked if we liked the food. My hamburger and fries... More

Nice place. Food is good, the ambience is spectacular. The kitchen is a bit small and it gets overwhelmed at times. Plan to visit and enjoy the river. At some times, the service gets a bit slow.

We stopped here for a couple of drinks one evening. It's definitely a "dive bar" but the beer is cold, the bathrooms are clean, and the bartender was friendly! There were two large groups there who all seemed happy with their meals.
