Great Hamburgers..

We came back late and stopped to grab dinner at about 8 pm. It was still light and we sat on the upper patio. The food was delicious. The inner bar area and entrance is a little dreary but the outdoor seating is great. The staff and the views are both spectacular.

I have never had worse french onion soup in my life. Tasteless,could not find more than 3 to 4 pieces of onion. Large chunk of soggy bread on top with no cheese. This was nothing more than tasteless beef stock and a piece of bread. This was our first try of the drake. Very poor first impression. Chicken wings were... More

After a long day of airports to get to Banff, we decided to try this place. We sat outside on the patio & service was good. The food was tasty & it was just the therapy we needed. Would definitely return!

We had our first dinner in Canmore, Alberta in this restaurant. We sat in the patio with a great view of the three sisters mountains. Very relaxed ambiance and lovely weather. The server (tall and maybe from UK or Australia??) was absolutely fun and energetic and helpful. The food was great you can even have two sides half quantities each... More

We were here with a group. The food was good and everybody had something different. The beer, of course, was good too. Parking is a bit hard to find unless one parks at the large box grocery stores across the street.

Our last night in Canmore, we were searching for casual, reasonable, yet good restaurant our family would enjoy. We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. There is seating inside near the bar but we preferred the seating outside as the weather was perfect. The burgers were delicious and our waiter was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed appetizers before our dinner... More

Busy day in Canmore, thought we'd try the Drake. Food was passable, but after a couple of sips of beer discovered lipstick smudge on the glass - neither of us where lipstick. We brought it to the attention of the wait staff who took it away, but instead of a fresh glass of beer they just wiped the smudge. Gross... More
