We've been here many times before and always have great food, good proportions in a great atmosphere. Two sizes of each meal are available for the hungrier appetite and don't disappoint. We enjoyed 4 different entrees and again, different sides with each meal. All were beyond expectation, both in presentation and taste.

Yum! This restaurant was delicious! Quick to get in and excellent service. We ordered the pot roast, mashed potatoes, squash casserole and an appetizer of fried green tomatoes. No complaints!

We arrived just before closing and they kindly sat us down. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. The menu is diverse and everything looked great. It took a while for the food to arrive but the place was packed, and if you are in a hurry, you shouldn't be on this island anyway. Time does not exist here. If you... More

Some of the best food on the Island and good prices. Be prepared to wait, but the food is worth it. Beautiful woodsy setting. Not just seafood, comfort food as well. Some items serves in Petite or Regular portions. Petite was plenty of food and cheap for a Resort Island.

We enjoyed dinner at The Driftwood Bistro so much, that we returned the following evening. The dining room opens at 5 PM and they do not accept reservations. The restaurant has a comfortable cottage feel with tables nicely spaced. The room is filled with natural light and there are no distractions from TVs or loud music. The staff is prompt,... More

After reading the reviews- this place definitely exceeded my expectations! The shrimp cakes were amazing! The crab bisque was so delicious! I opted to get the veggie plate because the sides sounded amazing. I got the fried okra (perfection), squash casserole (extremely rich and filling), the cabbage (even that was good!), and mac and cheese (omg). We got there at... More

We put our name on the list and luckily we were staying on the property as it took about 2 hours to be seated. Perhaps it was because of the volume but the service was lacking. The delivery was poorly timed and the drink refills were not timely. Despite the service, the food was excellent. My wife got the beef... More

Ate here at the recommendation of several locals. Food was AMAZING, prices were more than fair and service was friendly. Will definitely be eating here again when we get a chance to visit the area again.

We tried this place for dinner on our trip to Jekkyl Island. We were in the mood for seafood. I ordered the shrimp cakes with squash casserole and sweet potato souffle and my husband ordered the catfish dinner. Both dishes and all sides very outstanding and service was very good. Menu has good selections and are very reasonably priced, unlike... More
