“The Bistro”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This restaurant is in a very nice atmosphere, and they have a full menu with specials each night. The nice thing is that you can buy a bottle of wine with your dinner for only $10.00, and if you do not drink the whole bottle in the restaurant, they will put the leftovers in a paper bag and you can take it back home to finish it some other time.

“Loved Driftwood Bistro!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

During our vacation at Jekyll Island last week, we went to Driftwood Bistro 3 times and loved it! We enjoyed the food, the staff and the atmosphere greatly! There are so many choices and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Thanks Driftwood Bistro for making our anniversary trip SO special! We LOVED it!

“Best place on the Island! We tried them all!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Compliments to the chef, gives Charlestons restaurants, a run for their money. Our server was very good, personable, wish I could remember her name, suggested a perfect wine. Shrimp and grits was fantastic. Can't wait to go back for dessert. Excellent priced meal

“Expected better.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We choose this place based on reviews, which indicated it was the best of the beachside JI options. We were disappointed on almost every level. The Hostess Station was a chaotic mess, and one had to almost bull your way forward to be seated. The assigned Hostess was clearly not in command of the situation. Once seated someone took our drink orders promptly, and returned and took our orders promptly, but then disappeared. We waited over 30 minutes for the food to arrive and when it did some of it was cold, and the balance of it was not much better than your average home cook. When the cold food was brought to the waitress' attention she offered to have it "re-heated". I've never heard such an offer before, usually it is offered to be replaced, but in any event "re-heated" fish simply doesn't work. One of the salads didn't come out until after the entree was completed. All in all, it was among the most poorly coordinated dining experiences I've had anywhere. We were expecting quaint and inviting, instead we got assembly line and confusing.
