Drakes Sonoma Coast celebrates the local bounty of Sonoma's spectacular coastal region. Executive Chef Lloyd Norton excels in finding local, sustainably sourced ingredients, to prepare a menu that delights the senses. A large stone fireplace imbues a warm, casual ambiance, offset by panoramic views of Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Savor wines from the most exciting boutique vineyards in the Sonoma County, local craft beers and signature cocktails expertly mixed with a twist. Drakes is located at the Bodega Bay Lodge but is not exclusive to hotel guests. Open to the public for breakfast and dinner, Drakes is the perfect place to start or finish your day.

We only st as yes in the hotel a few days but had a good meal at Drakes. Both of us ordered a sandwich. It was delivered quickly and the water glasses filled when nearly empty without having to prompt the staff.
