We had the stuffed flounder, sweet potatoes and squash casserole. Boy was it good, We have eaten hear every time we have been in the area and the food and service is great. It was full of locals as well.

I had the shrimp and grits and I ordered the "petite" portion. It was more like a child's portion. My partner had the veggie wrap and it was good. Overall, it was good, but not great

We overheard someone talking about this place and tried it out.It lived up to what they said ! We had the wings for an app, probably in the top 3 I've had. I had the steak and scallops, she had the shrimp. It was all great. They wait on you hand and foot. Well priced. I'd go back for sure.

The food is always good here. Yankee Pot roast and fried okra in particular. We come to Jekyll Island almost every year, and this year at the Driftwood the service was brisk but not rushed, efficient yet friendly, whereas sometimes in the past it has been less than great. Advice: arrive a little before five, because the place fills up... More

Been to the island a few times but this is the first time eating here. It has a nice comfortable feeling with good service and food at a fair price. Sure it is a little loud and parking is not close but well worth it.

The staff was courteous and friendly and the food was delicious. The owner even came to our table and gave us directions to some fun spots. We will definitely go back!

We have eaten there at least once on each trip to Jekyll. The people are friendly and the food is good at a reasonable price. Great shrimp, great pot roast. Always a nice choice between southern and comfort. The only drawbacks are the parking and the sad fact that they no longer serve the fresh Key Lime Pie.

Two time visitors to Jekyll Island, first time here for dinner. Outrageously good....The food and service, thanks to Allison our waitress. The first bite my girlfriend took of her side dish collard greens, she was blown away by the southern preparation from the kitchen. Squash casserole and stuffed local flounder with crab meat for her. I had the Georgia shrimp,... More

So glad I waited on lunch and opted for an early dinner. We found this place thru TripAdvisor and have to say it was "Excellent"! Lovely spot, although it wasn't right on the waterfront the atmosphere was lovely & the food, even better. We hit the "happy hour" which greatly reduced the prices of both drinks and appetizers. We will... More
