We have visited Driftwoods for three years and have consistently had excellent seafood. It's fresh, lightly breaded, and not greasy. Last year we discovered their seafood platter for two. Flounder, shrimp, scallops, deviled crab, clams, and oysters. Since we don't like oysters we substituted shrimp. In addition to all this we each got two sides and an abundance of hush... More

Been twice once in 2014 and again in July 2016. Loved it both times. Great seafood. Cheaper than buffets and better. Will go again!!!

I had the white fish with wild rice & steamed broccoli. Everything was cooked perfectly. Wait staff were attentive but not excellent.

With that aside it was delicious. The combination of the goat cheese and the sweet sauce that is drizzled on top of the cheese it is... More

Went to dinner with my friend. Got there at 4:30 because it does get very crowded! I had the stuffed flounder with scampi sauce. My friend got the chicken marsala. Both were very good and the portions were generous. The service was fast, friendly and efficient. Also enjoyed the chocolate cake for dessert. I will return and recommend you give... More

My family and I are here on vacation, heard this was the spot that "locals don't want you to know about"... And I understand why. The food was really good. We waited for our food for 45 minutes after ordering and sat without refills for 15/20 minutes. I over looked that because they were understandably packed! Now the downfall- I... More

We have been here a couple of times over the years and have always left satisfied. We visited last night to get my fried seafood fix. Everything was very good and we will definitely go back in the future.

They always feed you well here, service was good, food was tasty. I enjoy the crackers and tuna fish spread they bring out while you wait. It can get crowded quick so come early. Opens at four, they have a good early bird menu.
