“Awesomeness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Back in St John and back again at Driftwood David's. The ribs are by FAR the best I have ever had! Our entire family of 4 got them and we devoured them in record time! They literally fall off the bone and the sauce is incredible! I can honestly say I cannot see me coming to St John and not making it to Driftwood David's. Trying is believing!

“Driftwood Daves”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Just returned from St John. We ate at Driftwood Daves twice. Ribs were excellent as was the stir fry and pasta dishes. Prices were very reasonable. Mike was our waiter and did an excellent job even entertaining our grandaughters with juggling and teaching us how to make pina colladas. Don't miss this place. Open Tue thru Friday. Lunch service begins at 11, dinner at 6.

“Best Ribs Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Don't share, get your own rack of ribs. I never understood my wife being rib crazy until I ate here. We were only there for 8 days and decided to eat there twice during that time. These were the best ribs we've ever had. They literally fall of the bone!!! Mike was our waiter and did an excellent job, both nights, he's very entertaining!

“Short walk from the Ferry... to deliciousness....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We stopped in this little bar/restaurant after reading the sign stating the Best Ribs and Burgers… We were not disappointed… the grilled burgers and slow roasted ribs were delicious!! The burgers came with chips, which was perfect for lunch! The Waiter/bartender was very nice. Clean restrooms and a nice breeze from strategically placed fans make this a must stop lunch destination if you are in St. John for the day:)

“Wow! The RIBS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Not too sweet, not too smokey. And F.A.L.L.I.N.G. off the bone. We live on St Thomas and frequently come to St John to spend the day. We'd seen the sign for Driftwood David's, but hadn't given them a try until last week. We shall be back!
