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, too. I had grilled ham and cheese with bbq sauce. It was super delicious. Service... More

Wow--a bar that serves outstanding food--who knew?? Drake's has a great menu and they deliver deliciously prepared food and hearty portions--we were stuffed! We started with the weekend $4 mimosas and an order of buffalo chips--house made potato chips slathered in bleu cheese and buffalo sauce. Then we moved on to the main course. One of us had the mini... More

The food was great! But our server was less attentive than the other servers on the floor. When the server brought my drink she just slid it across the table and never said a word to us. We will go back and hope we get another server next time.

Nice menu selection. We were here on a Thursday night; had fish fry and fish tacos Sampled some really smooth Bourbon upon the recommendation of our waitress. We will be back again tonight.

Food was average at best. Sticky, grimy floors in addition to the bench seating was a turnoff for me. Make sure you don't go in nice clothing.

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!
