Yummy! It's a small, unassuming place located in the Lumberyard (not a hardware store, but the name of a shopping/dining complex). Just 2 tables facing the water of Cruz Bay and one hard working man making delicious food. It was so good that we not only went for lunch, but dinner too the same day. Elizabeth was our server for...

Went for lunch and the place was empty. Had Fish & chips that were average at best. Service was friendly and fast, but food was disappointing.

My wife and I ate here 2 years ago and everything was fantastic. It didn't disappoint! The owner, Dave is a great guy! He runs a different special every night.

Our family visited Driftwood David's on our first trip to St. John in 2015. It was a great meal and wasn't overly expensive. I had the Mahi Mahi sandwich and the rest had burgers. Everyone was impressed and we came back when we visited in 2016. The service is wonderful and we will be visiting again when we're back in... More

Service was great by Cassie. Happy hour beers were $2, Corona and Heineken even. Ribs fell right of the bone. Highly recommend stopping.

After hearing personal reviews of the ribs and reading all of the on line reviews, we finally went. The initial reaction was one of skepticism, but we pushed on, found a place at the bar and was met by Kasi. She is one of the best bartenders we've ever met. Great personality and great service. She tried to convince us... More

The sushi is quite good. The drinks were really excellent. The service was wonderful. The views are just what you'd hope for on an island. The funny signs outside are hilarious. But the key lime pie is unparalleled. Go there for the drinks, the sushi and the service but don't miss out on the PIE!

We were looking for a carryout but not pizza and Driftwood David's became our favorite place. The rib dinner was so good we find ourselves coming back every time we're in St. John. Eating in the restaurant is a nice experience as well, but sometimes you want to just stay in. Highly recommend it.

This place has expanded and upgraded nicely. The food is great. Best ribs - not just in the island but anywhere! If ribs are being served there is no reason to open the menu! Something for all in the family.
