We were driving on highway 34, when we realized we were hungry. We asked Siri what is a good restaurant near us and Dew Drop Inn popped up as number 1. We were approaching Derby. It was highly rated and we assumed it had to be a fancy restaurant and that we may have been underdressed. We were wrong. The... More

We've often hit the DDI for their Monday half-price wings extravaganza, which can be washed down with a wide selection of domestic and imported draft or bottled brews. The wings are fabulous, come in a number of tasty to mouth-arson incarnations, and I haven't had a bad set yet. Friendly and attentive wait staff, and convivial atmosphere - as our... More

Really good food, on the pricey side. Over ten bucks for burgers and for the wings. I got a twelve ounce Belgium style ale for 7.50 that tasted skunky, not in the good Belgium way either. I should have sent it back. Wait staff was excellent.

The wings at Dew Drop Inn deservedly get most of the attention, but the craft beer selection and friendly service also deserve mention. As far as wings, the selection is amazing! I'm not sure that I want to eat sourpatch wings or spicy peanut butter and jelly wings, but I am impressed at any place that will put such creative... More

This place has many motorcycles out in front and I think that puts people off from stopping in. They have over 100 types of chicken wings and on Thursdays you can get a great strip steak, mashed potatoes and vegetable for $11. You can't beat it!

Found out about their $11.99 steak night on Thursday nights so figured we would try it. It's a biker bar which I think keeps people away (bikes are parked all in the front of the place). My husband loves wings and boy do they have wings-40 something different kinds. He got the parmesan garlic and bacon ones and he said... More
