Description: Drake's, like the guy who named it (Brian McCarty), and the guy it's named for (Bruce Drake), is a free-wheeling, fun-loving kind of joint. A place to hang out and let your hair down. A place to let yourself go a little. A neighborhood spot with something for everyone. Where you could run into just about anyone.

“Sports Bar with Excellent Burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Drake's fills a needed Huntsville niche as a nice sports bar in a great location! Our server was very helpful with the menu selections although service was a bit slow. The burger was exceptional with a thick slab of meat on a toasted bun - yummy! The table where we sat was wooden with long and wide wooden benches shared by two tables. The benches are hard and cannot be moved to get closer to the table however the delicious food outweighed our discomfort in seating. Highly recommend Drake's for watching sports (or not) while having a great burger!

“Fun atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

A bar with good food !?! ...Drake's ...a fun bar type atmosphere with good food. Anything from sushi to burgers and they have lots of different kind of draft beers. Hard to find a table but worth the wait. Also the servers are very attentive and want to make you happy. If you're looking for up-beat, fun and good food...check it out.

“Fun, Food & Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Drake's is just what Huntsville needs: festive atmosphere, good food, and draft beer choices. Based on the crowds, every time I've been, I'm not the only one impressed with this new establishment. Everything I've tried has been delicious, buffalo chicken mini's & soft tacos, burgers, and fish & chips. The table tap option is a unique and fun way to make sure your glass is never empty. The prices are reasonable and the place is always fun. On a nice day, the garage doors are up creating an open air atmosphere. The only down side is due to it's popularity, finding an open table can be a challenge. Since Drake's is a restaurant/bar, it's first come, first serve on seating, so during peak hours you may be out of luck. If you are able to grab a table though, you'll be in for a good time and good food.

“Wow, Another Restaurant in the Shopping Center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We visited Drake's 4 nights after its Grand Opening (it was very crowded). The weather was warm that night so they had the front windows / doors open. It's first come first serve for tables (no hostess) so be prepared to walk around the restaurant looking for a table. Our wait was about 20 minutes but one of the workers helped us to get a table. Drake's has 2 bars and a sushi bar plus several TV's. The food was ok but it is a great place to visit if you like beer. Tons of choices plus they will even bring a table tap to your table (90 ounces). The service was great and everyone is friendly. Not exactly an ideal place to take children but definitely a great place to take a date or hang out with friends.
