Love the Driftwood, it's like another home with GREAT FOOD. Texas style burgers and grill, fish, steak, ribs and just too much good food to name. Sharon and Bruce will treat you like family. Great bar, outside upstairs deck seating, drive your boat right up to the dock!

Simply great food in a great location with great people behind the counter and at the bar. The seafood soup, BBQ and tex-mex type fare are all wonderful. Slightly pricey by Utila standards but still cheap. Well worth it. We came back many times during our stay and each time we enjoyed not only the food but the atmosphere and conversations with the owners and other guests.

The Drift!! The wonderful owners - Bruce and Sharon as well as their sweet dog, make you feel at home as soon as you walk in. The views are beautiful from any seat, including the bar. Definitely the BEST burger on the island, as well as the best Texas BBQ I’ve had anywhere. Don’t miss the pulled pork and brisket if you’re lucky enough to be there on a day when they are on the menu. The pork ribs are amazing and even the french fries are way up there on the “best of” list. Add to the great food and hospitality their famous “Monkey Bawls” (made with their homemade kahlua) and you’ve got a perfect night in Utila! I can’t wait to be back.
