This is a good place to get a meal. It seems the menu changes frequently. Staff is very friendly and food was good. They accept credit cards but do not offer free Wifi for customers. Many restaurants in St. John are cash only.

Driftwood Dave’s restaurant is located directly below the Barefoot Cowboy restaurant in the Lumberyard building. It is easily walkable from the ferry dock. Driftwood Dave’s’ has early afternoon happy hour specials and Barefoot Cowboy has later afternoon happy hour specials. Some folks in my group were able to happy hour hop between the 2 locations as the 2 happy hours align.

Note: Almost every bar or restaurant in St. John has a happy hour special between 3 and 6 pm. This seems to be the peek time with tourists in town. Hop around.

I hope you find this review helpful

Only people there, place is not fancy. Things stored in the back, wasn't sure about it but food great. Both had fish, garlic smashed potatoes and carrots. Fish great, and potatoes fabulous. Owner very attentive, surprising spot.

Sometimes you just have to try a nondescript, off the main drag type of place. I had zipped by this place several times from the Westin and had not noticed it, however I did get a wonderfull smell of ribs being grilled. So my wife and I tried it and was not disappointed. Absolutely wonderful and very friendly service. Yes, I had the ribs with garlic mashed potatoes, grilled veggies with St John craft beer Summer Ale. Great combination, great ribs! Wife had a wonderful fish of the day wrapped in bacon and grilled with homemade pasta that was a homerun. She requested a garlic pasta instead of the creamy alfredo side dish and they said no problem. She absolutely loved it.

My husband and I shared a full rack of ribs and we both wished we got a rack of our own. Very tender, great sauce. The mashed potatoes and cooked carrots on the side were delicious as we'll. We will definitely be back!
