Stopped here after a visit to drift wood beach down the road. Great service in a laid back old south feeling dining room. I had the pot roast, mashed potatoes and roll and it was delicious. I would go back!

We went here for dinner. We were greeted warmly and seated right away. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The food was solid. We would return to dine here again, if on the island.

Everything is great but my favorite is the shrimp and grits. Pot roast, cabbage, collards... all good! Great service! The fried okra pods are a must try app!

My wife and I stayed at the Jekyll Island Campground for two nights and bicycled down to the Driftwood Bistro about a mile away. Service was great, food was good and they worked with us to get the meals we wanted. We wanted an individual salad and then we would share an entre. We did this on night 1 with the dip and on night 2 we had the very good fish and chips. Whoops, I said fish and chips because that was what was on the menu but they worked with us to get just the fish and two salads. We will go there again if or when we stay on Jekyll Island. The Island itself is a real treat.

Our second favorite restaurant on Jekyll. Good selection and diversity of entrees; enjoyable (bustling) atmosphere, with local artwork for sale decorating the walls; and, reasonably priced higher end restauran. Great deserts as well. Tends to be very crowded very early on, so factor that into your arrival. We very much appreciated their willingness to serve folks who get their late, even as dinner is winding down.
