Really nice warm friendly restaurant with good service and food. Greeted at the door and promptly seated.by staff and a short wait between order and getting meal. Hush puppies served hot with two sauces and honey butter. Fish fresh and delicious. Can get very busy as the night goes on.

The place is not great but not terrible either. It's a good place for a quick meal close to home. Just wish it looked cleaner...I always feel like the entire place needs to be cleaned.

I am a Shrimp lover. Finding fresh fried, juicy shrimp with a small amount of breading is not so easy. Even at the beach, it is difficult. This restaurant may be a little off the main area, but it is worth the drive. The sides are delicious and the service is outstanding. Warm and friendly staff. I will go back... More

We took our guests to Driftwood's for dinner a couple of times. We have found consistently delicious local seafood here. Both the adults and children thoroughly enjoyed everything. Our servers as well as the manager and hostess were friendly and very attentive to all of our party. On Monday evening the adults enjoyed the Skipper's Platter that included scallops, shrimp,...

An excellent casual dining experience in every respect! My husband is extremely fussy about his oysters, but enjoyed the raw oysters so much, he almost ordered a second dozen as an appetizer! The fried oyster dinner was equally delicious...lightly breaded, tender. My fried scallops were very yummy, too, along with a wide choice of sides. Prices are extremely reasonable for... More

I had not dined at Driftwoods in several years, but friends asked us to join them for supper. The hostess sat us immediately and our server immediately brought a bowl of delicious hush puppies with honey butter. Drinks were served quickly and orders taken in short order. Monday night special was all you can eat crab claws. My guests ordered... More

Crab was tasteless. This is no Crabby Mikes. For $30.00 price tag would not eat there again. Friend had Early Bird flounder. She said it was good.

After returning for our annual winter snowbird season, we have put the Driftwood at the top of our eating out stops! From the service, the quality of the food, the laid back atmosphere, it is truly a foody's dream come true! The location is a little out of the way, but as the locals know, well worth the trip!!! With... More

I was taken here by friends who are locals. It’s not out on the water so it’s not well known by tourists.  I had the all you can eat crab legs. GREAT!!! Unlike the buffets, they bring you smaller HOT portions as you need them. Service was excellent and due to my friends, the owner stopped by to visit.... More

We loved Driftwood! Locals love the fact that not too many people are even aware of it. They have something to make everyone happy. Be sure to go on your birthday with an ID showing your birth date and get a free meal.
