One of my friends introduced me to Driftwood Southern Kitchen a few years ago. The restaurant is about a 45 minute drive from our first house in Holly Springs, so we picked a day we didn’t have a lot going on to drive up to Lafayette Village for supper. We had such a delightful dining experience thanks to the service, ambiance, and food options.
Driftwood Southern Kitchen Review:
I recently met Glory here to check out the recently updated menu and was once again impressed with the options and with the service Driftwood Southern Kitchen offers.
I am pretty particular about my pimento cheese, and the pimento cheese at Driftwood Southern Kitchen is some of the best in Raleigh. Bonus, dip the pork rinds that you get when you’re seated in for a truly Southern treat. Glory and I started with a glass of bubbly each, and then checked out the menu options.
Glory opted for the smoked & grilled baby back ribs that are served with house bbq sauce, cabbage slaw, and homemade chips. I went with the Maine lobster rolls with Duke’s mayo (because it’s the best, duh), lemon, lettuce, and homemade chips. Their lobster rolls are some of the best I’ve tasted and I’m a sucker for house made chips. I asked for a dipping sauce of ranch, and their dressing is an avocado ranch, which is delicious!
A new option on the menu is the impossible burger, which is a vegetarian option. On my next trip, I’ll definitely be giving that one a try.
For dessert, Glory and I picked Shayda’s macarons. The flavors are rotating, but you honestly can’t go wrong with these. They’re light and the perfect compliment to a filling dinner.
Be sure to check out Driftwood SouthernKitchen for a delicious dining experience in Lafayette Village!
