Went in for oysters but that was a no go. Then 3 items on the menu were out, so there was very little to choose from an already limited menu. The owner was behind the bar- very pleasant and apologized. The mushroom soup was very tastey. Very dark inside even though the windows are large.

Strolled in early on a Sunday afternoon and had a great Bloody Mary and some shared, protracted beers with the wife and kids. We also had 8 Connecticut oysters and some honey glazed wings for apps. They were both delicious. Unfortunately, they were out of the oyster chowder which I had been hoping to try. For the main course, we... More

I have been to this place twice in the past six weeks. One of the pros is that it is cozy, small and intimate, and I like the way it's decorated. The first time I stopped in was in the middle of the day after lunch time. We weren't really hungry but we were walking by and there was some... More

We were on business in Plymouth and friends from the area highly recommended Driftwood. Driftwood is famous for it filled pretzel sandwiches--which we heard were great. I had their chicken wings instead and just loved them. Oyster chowder was rich and very nice as well. Service (Jen) was friendly and terrific. We're ready to go back.

This is the place to try Stuffed Pretzels and their fries as well! Scrumptious. It is usually busy, which means it's noisy and it is small inside! If you enjoy good food but not the noise...order to go and find a scenic place on the waterfront to enjoy! Minutes from the waterfront!

We stopped there for a drink after having lunch, but next time, I'd like to eat there as the sandwiches sounded interesting, as did the pretzels. The waitress was great and told us how to make the martinis at home, which I will definitely do.

Dim lighting. Could not hear my husband because music was too loud. Watched everyone around us get their food while we waited a half hour. Waitress kept saying it was coming. Even told us she saw it being plated then watched her clean two tables, bring a table their check, watched them pay, and still nothing. How long does a... More

We were pre destined to try this place , since we saw it featured on triple d. It is a non pretentious spot, small and easy going. The house frys were to kill for as was the stuffed pretzels.
