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

Great food. Bottle of wine for $12 outstanding was Blackstone Merlot. A bit noisy in the room we were in.

Menu is not extensive - BUT - everything on it is well prepared and delicious with the added plus of being very reasonably priced. Service (we've been there several times) is ALWAYS very good. We're locals and this is one of our go to places that we recommend to friends, family and strangers visiting the area.

The Driftwood Bistro is not only excellent but the prices are very reasonable. My husband had stuffed flounder and I had catfish with two sides. We both had a glass of wine and our tab was $42 including $7 tip. The bistro has a very homey atmosphere and our service was excellent!

Wow! What a treat. We had an awesome dinner with 8 of us after a hard days work. The staff and owner were top notch. The food was super. I had the steak and scallops and my wife the pot roast. Big portions and I still wanted more. The sweet potato casserole was so good my wife took home the... More

Excellent food, reasonably priced and excellent service. There will probably be a wait to get seated but it is definitely worth it.
