We stopped there after a long day of swimming and snorkeling. The food was great. My SIL and I had burgers and my wife had the ribs. We were each delighted with excellent, well prepared meals. The burgers were prepared perfectly and the meat was falling off the bones of the ribs. The ribs were tender and the sauce was uniquely delicious. I would recommend any trip to St. John include Driftwood David's!

Fantastic ribs, meat just falls off bone. Great service with Dave taking time to talk to his patrons with nice personal touch.

For guy that came frame Elizabethtown, N.C. Home of famous Melvin's hamburger, he has created "Dave's famous Ribs"

You gotta to eat there while in St. John.

We found a little bit of Carolina at Driftwood David's in St John! David is from Elizabethtown, NC. These are the best ribs we've ever had, and we're looking forward to coming back next time we're here.

Deja Vu!!! Back in St John and back again at Driftwood David's. Now my parents have fallen in love with the ribs! We even branched out and tried the fish and it was superb too...I am sure we will return again before leaving the island. If you have not been there give it a try. Trying is believing!

Great spot for a casual dinner. Ribs were fall-off-the-bone delicious! I took a chance, and was disappointed in the linguine dish, however...pasta was borderline crunchy...could have been cooked a bit longer. Service was excellent. I would definitely go back!
