Since there was a recent review from September of 2014 we thought we would try the Driftwood with all of the wonderful reviews. It is definitely closed with a full sale sign. So disappointed.

Based upon the reviews you would think this place was great! Jaco isn't know for it's food choices but this place is mediocre at best. There are much better choices.

We came at lunch time, no other diners was there. Friendly staff. Nice interior. We ordered a pizza; it was good but not amazing.
