Very cool looking restaurant, offers outside dining with a beautiful view of the Mississippi when weather allows. I'll start with the good. We were seated quickly with no reservation on a Saturday night. Our waitress was friendly and our appetizer of crab cakes were pretty...More

This is a bit on the spendy side but the food is good and the history is wonderful. We have always done it for lunch.

I'll be brief, the Steak was okay at best, the Service also only okay, and the Value mediocre. Just haven't been thrilled with this place ever though some meals have been good and none ever were terrible. It's just mediocre quality for a slightly high...More

We were there mid afternoon on a Saturday and got right in without any reservations. The food was great. My husband had the filet and I had the Artichoked Chicken dinner. We have nothing to complain about, and will definitely be going back.

I'll start with the things I loved: the ambiance, view of the river (I sat outdoors), and waitress were all wonderful. It really was almost worth it just for the view. It was a mild summer day with a breeze, so perfect to be outside....More

Went on a date night with rework, no kids. We had each been to the drake before, but were never impressed. Yet still we decided to try it together. And the outcome was disappointing. The patio is nice, the inside restaurant decor is not really...More

I was part of a large group that ate at the Drake on a Thursday evening in June. We had an entire section of the restaurant to ourselves. The waitress was alone and had very little help. It took a long time to get drinks,...More
