Always a great place to stay & Eat! Right next to the ferry boats, and a great spot for walking to the museum of Ojibwa Culture!

Everything was good on my experience eating here. Great food and great customer service, a little bit expensive but worth it.

We stopped for lunch. The service was quick and the waitress was really friendly. The salad bar and soup were good. I had the cheeseburger and it was ok. The patty was quite thin and has holes in it. It was not over cooked just thin. The topping were really good on it.

Been here many times. Just ok. Once had great lobster. Also had worse pasty I've ever tasted. Service is good. Salad bar good. Typical run of the mill place.

The food was delicious, the beer was cold and the staff was above and beyond accommodating. I was so grateful to have a kitchen still open at 11pm during the week, as I hadn't eaten since lunch and many places were not yet open for the tourist season. I had the Cuban, it was amazing, and I am a seasoned... More

Nothing to brag about. Whitefish basket was size wise fine. Tasted fishy though, because the belly skin was not removed.

I've eaten both breakfast and dinner over the past 5 years at the Driftwood and always been pleased with the generous portions and quick preparation in a family restaurant that is the antithesis of fast food.

There's a sports bar on one side and a quieter restaurant on the other. The food is good. The best part is the salt scrub in the ladies room!
