We are at driftwood a couple years ago for our anniversary and it was amazing! Came back today and it was not amazing. Terrible service and food was wrong. Instead of offering apologies and trying to make it better, the host basically told me I...More

This restaurant is very laid back & casual but their food is better than a lot of high end restaurants. We had a delicious dungeness crab & cheese casserole and a divine rib eye steak cooked perfectly.

Excellent service, delicious food. We ordered the entree crab casserole (fabulous! very rich; served with vegetables, clam chowder or salad, potato) and a smaller portion of the salmon entrée (served with a salad and rice pilaf). I always appreciate the option of a smaller size--it's...More

Hearty pours and decent well drink. Waitress great. However, razor clams were fried in old grease which had a funny taste. Halibut was dry. The food was so so and expensive. Just ok.
