Place was busy - lots of people just hanging out and drinking and smoking. Chill vibe on the beach and many stray dogs as well. Problem was it took over an hour for our pizza to arrive, our kids were starving and bored, once it did arrive, the pizza was just okay. Beach location is nice - when there is... More

Dear Guest, We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your time at Driftwood. You came on a Tuesday which is our 'Jam Nite 'with live music and it is "loud and crowded" no doubt! There are definately "lots of people just hanging out and drinking and smoking" because that's what people do when they come to a bar... More

We went for lunch since Driftwood was highly recommended from pizza. It was a great recommendation. The homemade pizza was really good, very nice crust and good flavor. Choice of several toppings, you pick what you want. Worth going!

Great little beach bar on the far north side of Hopkins. This beach bar offers indoor and outdoor seating. The bartender is friendly and the pizza is hot and tasty. We had a great time here!

Best pizza ever! A locals spot right on the beach! If your going to be staying in Hopkins you can't miss it! There was a local band there the night we went and our whole group of 6 enjoyed the atmosphere and food!

Pizza was awesome! Beautiful location right on the water. Fast and friendly service. Kitchen looked a little dirty, but not enough to scare us away. Clean bathrooms. Would definitely recommend!

This place has awesome pizza. And not just good pizza for a beach town. Good pizza by any standard. The crust is similar to a Chicago crust, but not super deep dish. It comes out super crispy and maintains that crispiness (unlike some pies that flop in a second). We came here twice during our 5-day stay. The location is... More

Great price for good pizza. Great tunes, nice atmosphere. Loved watching the ladies in the kitchen preparing everything. Food was tasty and worth it. Drinks were a bit pricey.

Just opened about 6 months ago - serves pizza and pasta, has a bar, sits on the beach with some volleyball and games at times, cute decor and great owners - expats from Canada. Really good pizza, nice break from the local food if you need it.
