The wait was incredibly long. Even for the server to come. It wasn’t busy as I’d expect it to be so I was wondering what was taking so long. Maybe short in staff yesterday. I don’t know. The sangrias are great and I hate sangrias,...More

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, great food and drinks. Was there for our Work Christmas party. We all had a great time. Casual atmosphere. Music was not too loud so you could still have a conversation. Lots of parking in the back.

Delicious food! My partner said his quesadilla was so good and he couldn't finish it all (and he's a big water.) I had the 3 mini cheeseburgers-they are sirloin burgers and so juicy! Loved eating al fresco in the bar area!

Really enjoyed the food selections. Several in the group had fish and it was a large serving and really tasty. My husband had the fried bologna sandwich. This is something he hasn't had for many many years. It brought back good memories and was tasty,...More

A restaurant that loves beer and a bar that loves food. Over 20 craft beers on tap, big burgers and the freshest sushi in town. Your go-to for lunch, dinner and late-night, Drake's is a free-wheeling, fun-loving kind of joint. A place to hang out and let your hair down. A place to let yourself go a little. Come play!
