A bit on the pricey side, but big portions. English and Spanish speaking. Nice dock to relax on. Better than average food for Utila

The first time I went into Driftwood my experience was good but not great- I ordered BBQ chicken that was served to me off the grill but still cold in the middle.

I had lunch here twice and supper twice. All meals were very good and reasonably priced. I had to be talked into the grilled pork chop - after all, it is an island and fish is king. The pork chop was massive, perfectly grilled, one of the best meals i had duting my two months on the island.

Always a favorite. The food and service have been consistently good over the years I've lived here. Am enjoying some of the new menu items added this past year; baked macaroni and cheese, the various new sauces available for dipping, and most especially, the cheesecake desserts.

Loved this place. Really friendly bartender and bar owner. Food was good. Right on the water. Played American country music and had good drink deals.

Great food at a reasonable price. The chicken kabobs are really good! One of my favorite places to eat. It's run by a couple from Texas, and they do a great job. If you like Kahlua, be sure to ask about their "Monkey Balls". (It's a shot.)

Beautiful large lobster tail and delicious sides. The best rum punch I've had yet too! Great location on the dock. We'll be back!
