“Best Darn Ribs & Burgers On The Planet”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Everything about this place shouts awesome. Incredibly delicious food cooked up before your very own eyes in their sleek open kitchen. Lots of seating options including 2 bars! The only criticism I have is that they were not the most comfortable bar stools on St. John's. What a fun place to hang out at. David and Thaddeus and Aaron make such a delightful staff. They treat everyone as if they were the President of the United States.

“Casual and delicious”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We wanted a casual and delicious meal which took us to Driftwood David's. Their ribs were as advertised - fall off the bone yummy. A little spicy and sweet!! Also ordered the shrimp and mussel pasta in a light sauce which was also very tasty . Topped off with Key Lime cheesecake which was a excellent finisher. Just go and enjoy. You will not be disappointed! Service was timely and responsive. Tummy smiles!

“I don't get all the 5 star reviews!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We ate here based on the all the 5 star reviews. I don't get it, it's bar food served with a cheap bag of chips! The ribs were chewy and hard and they didn't have a kids menu. We ended up paying $12 for a grilled cheese made with American cheese for a 4 year old. If you are looking for a reasonably priced meal (for St. Johns) don't have kids and want some average bar food, this is your place.

“Awesomeness”
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”
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.
