Driftwood Bistro – Low Country Cuisine on Jekyll Island

Where to Eat – Driftwood Bistro

Driftwood Bistro is a casual restaurant in the Villas By the Sea complex on Jekyll’s north end.  It is well known by locals because they have good food at reasonable prices.  You can even get petite plates that include half-sized entrees and smaller sides. The restaurant specializes in Low Country Cuisine, sort of home cooking for the area.  Seafood specialties include Shrimp and Grits and Stuffed Flounder, two of my favorites. But they also have many dishes for the non-seafood eater, such as Meatloaf and Pot Roast.  Their side are good, too! Each entree comes with two of them, and we have problems choosing.  The Sweet Potato Souffle, Fried Okra, and Squash Casserole are among our usual choices.  Oh no! My husband says don’t forget the Fried Green Tomatoes.
