Nice restaurant that sits on the Missouri River. Large windows and decks to sit and watch the boaters all summer.

The Driftwood is the best restaurant in town, by far. It is the only high quality steak house in town. The other places might serve steak, but it is not as good quality and the atmosphere is much nicer here. Looking out over the river is actually fairly pretty.

The steaks, pork chops and chicken here is good. Their fish dishes are not too bad. They have a variety of grilled or fried fish. I tried their lobster once and it was not worth it. Everything else is great. You can actually order a steamed vegetables too. The lounge area is very nice. We like to take out of town friends here for dinner and a slice of small town atmosphere.

This is one of my favorite places to get a cocktail in the summer. You can sit on their outside patio overlooking the river.

Word of advice, get here early. No reservations and it gets busy the second it opens. The waitstaff is very good, but food can be slow to come out.

We have eaten there several times never had a bad meal. The pork chops are to die for and the petite filets melt in your mouth.
nice view of Missouri River even in the winter.

The service and food have been outstanding. Not a fancy but delicious. I ordered their steak and lobster special and the lobster was so tender and sweet I was surprised. I already knew the Filet would be tender and amazing. My husband, who is very picky about his rare steak said he would say this restaurant is much better than the over priced fancy ones because his steak was cooked perfect to his liking.
