Amazing food. Delicious. So rich.

We started with crab bisque and we were amazed - amazingly rich. Delicious. For dinner, the folks at the Sea Turtle Center recommended fried okra and squash casserole, and as a recent transplant to the South, we must try shrimp & grits. My wife had the yankee pot roast. Each thing was amazing. I couldn't finish - it was simply too much. Next time, I'll go for the petite portion. Ask for the squash casserole recipe!

If you are on the island - go and try it. The only downside: it's off season and we had to wait a few minutes, and finding it in the dark was tricky. Go - try it out.

Nobody makes fried okra better than my mom... except maybe Driftwood bistro. It was so good!!! My black bean burger was okay. But my husband got the vegetable pasta and that was delicious. There is something for everyone and as a vegetarian I was pleased to see so many vegetarian options.

The food here was amazing! Our server, Mary, was very nice and knowledgeable. I had shrimp cakes, fried okra, and sweet potato souffle. It was the ultimate southern comfort food dinner. Delicious!!
My wife had the key lime pie and the Sea Turtle green martini for dessert. They were also amazing!
This is definitely a great place to eat on the island!!

Mary our server was excellent! Catfish was delicious, a little salty but very yummy. The petite portion was well more than enough!

We coupled the key lime pie with the sea turtle martini and it was so good, there wasn't time for a picture!
