Amazing service and delicious food. Easily the best place to eat on Jekyll. Fried green tomatoes were awesome. The martinis were yum. Dessert was amazing. Loved it.

When we arrived there was a line but we were seated in about 15 minutes.Prices were reasonable, large menu and food was very good. We enjoyed the great service and friendly atmosphere. If we were to come back Jekyll Island we would revisit Driftwood Bistro!

The food is great and the service is great as well! If you want to walk out on the beach when your done theres a great pavilion out back! Get there early because it’s popular, but not packed!

The shrimp and grits & fried green tomatoes are the best I've ever had & I live in Charleston so I have had alot to compare it with. We'll be back next vacation!!! Highly recommend!

I would think they could accommodate your party. However, since they don't accept reservations, I would definitely call ahead of time and inform them how large your party is. The night I was there, there was a party of 10... More
