Driftwood David's is a great little place to grab the best burgers and ribs on St John. At a great price. The wife and I kept coming back. Veggie Burger is so unique and so good. I highly recommend this place and if that isn't enough domestic bottles are only a $1 during Happy Hour. You just can't beat it.... More

This place has the best BBQ ribs and pulled pork. Tender and the perfect combination of flavor. If you not a meat eater try the Mahi sandwich along and add a side of coleslaw. You will not be disappointed with this place. Prices and food are great! Oh yea, lets not forget the rum punch with was the best on... More

Despite a busy day when his help failed to show up, Dave served us great food and drinks and still shared some great stories. This was the only place we visited where our family wanted to go back again.

Love the menu - very short and simple. Burger, ribs, fish sandwich... Everything $9 or less. We had a burger, 1/2 rack ribs, and key lime pie. All were fantastic! Highly recommend a stop to this little gem

only problem was that we only discovered it on our last day there. We were looking for a happy hour and dinner on the last day of our honeymoon and had tried all the places that were on our list to go to. After reading the reviews we thought we would give it a try. The reviews were right, Dave's... More

Thanks for stopping by Driftwood David's! I would have to agree with you on our Key lime being the best on the planet. I must give credit to Kelsey Daddow for making the magic happening with the tart filling and sweet crust she does all from scratch..Please visit again soon More

This is our second visit to Driftwood David's. Now, I don't like BBQ ribs. Never have. BUT. I have to say that the ribs here are WONDERFUL. The meat just falls off the bones and are delicious. David is a delight. So friendly and hospitable. Don't walk away without trying the Key Lime pie. Delicious. Prices are very reasonable.

This is a little hidden secret. A lot of locals don't even know about it. It has an amazing view and David is too funny. The ribs are delicious and only $9 for a half rack. The fish was great - we preferred it on salad instead of in a bun and he was happy to do that. The fries... More
