I have been to Drake's several times. I usually get the fish sandwich and fries. It is my favorite. The cocktails are awesome. Never disappointed! Keep up the good work

We tried this because we wanted a place that wasn't a chain. We sat at the bar. The server was very slow. We had to get her attention for everything. Water refill, napkins, silverware, mayo. The food was good. My friend had some sushi and I had a burger. It wasn't the best burger I have ever had but it... More

Great atmosphere. Large garage doors that open to the outside on a nice day and lots of TV to watch . Great draft beer selection . Limited menu; salads, burgers and sushi . We don't care for sushi, although it looked pretty good when the people around us ordered it . The burgers good; nothing special. We had an issue... More

Friendly Staff, good food and nice casual atmosphere. Fun place to be on a Friday afternoon with a great "value". Would definitely recommend a visit!

The hand formed burgers are fantastic. Try the mini-trio burgers w/ tater tots! They need to clean the tables & counter better-too sticky ALL the time.

When the weather is nice, Drake's opens their large garage doors around the bar. It's a nice place to grab a beer. The wine menu is really limited. As for food, the menu is a mix of bar food, burgers, and sushi. They have a couple of salads and I was happy to see a black bean burger and vegetable... More

There aren't to many places open late in the area. At 12:30 AM, this is a great spot! Had a black and blue burger - would rate it as above average. Atmosphere was mellow. Music was a bit loud, but it is a bar and it was Friday, so that isn't to surprising. I will be back to Drakes.

Ate lunch on friends recommendation and maybe the best hamburger I have ever had. I had the juicy Lucy and sweet potato fries. The other burgers I tried ( my family has to share) where also good. Gf if you just don't get a bun. Coleslaw was also very good. Can't wait to visit again. We ate in the patio... 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!
