The food is incredibly good only matched by the genuinely attentive service from the owner. I tried some of everyone's dish at our table and would have been equally happy ordering any meal. Trust me when I say, the lady who cooks here knows what she is doing. It doesn't get any better.

We have been going to St John now for over eighteen years and have never really paid much attention to the Lumberyard. With the recommendation of a real estate agent on the island, we wandered into Driftwood David's and had the best meal we've had in a long time. We had met David by chance when we were looking at a property for sale and we very pleased to find that he had a restaurant in Cruz Bay. He is extremely personable and makes his guests feel welcome as soon as they come in the door. He has a wonderful selection of drinks and entrees and his prices are very reasonable. He also offers wine paring selections and the combinations are excellent. Don't miss Driftwood David's for a wonderful meal, great service and a promise to yourself to return again and again.

Driftwood David's was the best food I ate during my week long stay on St. John and the happy hour special was very reasonably priced. Get the ribs happy hour special or not they are well worth it. Plus Dave was really nice and pleasant to with and remembered me the next day when I came back for more.

We were a little worn out with the eating out and big menus. We went here for lunch because we wanted something completely relaxed, casual, and uncomplicated. Not that eating out on St John can't be all those things, we had been beach hopping and were salty and dirty looking. Nobody cared at DD. We ordered a delicious fish sandwich and a jumbo loaded hotdog. The prices were good and the staff very friendly. The location is not hard, in the Lumberyard in Cruz Bay, but the scenery is not what you go here for. It's right on the street and a little loud with traffic, but the food and relaxed atmosphere inside made you not care. It lived up to what we expected and more.
