I had never been to the Drake even though I only live 45 minutes away until right before Christmas and I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was great and the food was tasty and there were several options

The service was so wonderful, but I cannot stop talking about the food. The fried pickles and sweet corn nuggets were so good. Some of the best I have ever had in a restaurant. We got the crab cakes and the grilled duck breast. I was so amazed by the deliciousness of both dishes. The price is a little higher... More

Food was not the same old thing, very nice Wait staff attentive. We never had to look for our waitress. Everything was delicious. I had a salad with salmon steak and I believe cashew dressing. My date had a wonderful steak. Never had to ask for a second drink either. Wonderful.

Although it was quiet because we were there for a mid-afternoon lunch, I could see this as a hopping place. The waiter treated us as if we were regulars, the food was good and the beer was cold.
