I have been wanting to try Driftwood Kitchen for over a year now and finally decided to give it a go. The setting of the restaurant is very nice as it is facing the sand and the water. Usually with setting like that, the food quality is just average. Fortunately the food was above average but our waitress even though friendly, had the most annoying loud nasal voice I have ever heard. Your only choice of parking was valet for a $6 fee.

Steak & Eggs Grilled Butcher Steak and Eggs, Chimichurri Sauce
The steak was a good quality, had a nice smokiness and was very flavorful. It came with the side of potatoes, onions and peppers that was in desperate need of seasoning.

DK Benedict Berkshire Ham, Blood Orange Hollandaise, Skillet Potatoes
We were undecided for our second dish and asked our waitress whether we should go with the crab omelet, soft shell crab sandwich or the eggs benedict. She said the benedict was her favorite.
The selling point for me was the berkshire ham and thankfully it did not disappoint. It was very flavorful and not overly salty. The English muffin was on the hard side and was not easy to cut. There was no trace of blood orange in the hollandaise sauce. The skillet potatoes seemed to be their typical side and as I mentioned before lacked any seasoning. A dash of spice would have done wonders for it.
