Disorganized and chaotic

It took me less time to drive to Canmore from Calgary. Than it did to get my order. Come on it is Canmore on the long weekend, of course you are going to be busy. Get some friggen staff, at least if there was staff maybe it would be easier to choke down the mediocrity of everything else...

The Drake is a reasonable pub in Canmore that offers decent food. We had burgers, fish and chips and a steak sandwich. All was fine, but nothing special.

After visiting here in the Summer we decided to stop in again when we were in the area again. As before we were not disappointed. It was a lot quieter this visit and we had a choice of anywhere to sit. The big log fire burning away was lovely as it was -10 outside. Once again the staff were really... More

Good value on a wing night. Big portions and big wings for wing lovers. I had clam-chowder soup and it was so yummy but served late. Spinach dip was fantastic. I didn't find the Caesar tasty. Nice atmosphere. I will go again.

We stopped here for lunch and the menu and food selections were very good, Had the steak sandwich, which was very well prepared, the outside seating was very comfortable and the views of the mountains were great as well. I will go back.

I still like this place after many many years. It is sitting in the beautiful Rockies so it's a great spot after a grungy activity out and about when you are really hungry. Although internally it may be not as posh and nice as many other places in Canmore (which are not necessarily offering better food and drink), it's totally... More

Unfortunately, my wife and I were looking for a quiet evening meal and so our review is seriously affected by the evening we went. It was a Monday evening and fairly quiet when we went in but as soon as we sat down the music was turned up and conversation was difficult. The large bar in the TV room (projector... More

After visited the Drake for many years, things don't really change in regards to the service, it is usually very slow and haphazard, especially if you are sat on the patio. The food we had was an improvement on the last time we ate there, so hopefully things are moving in the right direction.

We were told to go here for the nightlife as we were celebrating two birthdays. When we arrived, there was a cover charge, so we reluctantly paid, since the last bar we went to was terrible and we couldn't see in from the entrance. We went in and we're pretty excited that the band was good, except there was no... More

The pleasant atmosphere is the first thing which hits you when you enter the bar/restaurant, the only draw down is you don't know if you have to find a seat or be seated as the signage wasn't very clear. The waitresses were very polite and would help out whenever required and would always answer any questions poised to them. The... More
