A restaurant that loves beer and a bar that loves food. Over 20 craft beers on tap, big burgers and the freshest sushi in town. Your go-to for lunch, dinner and late-night, Drake's 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. Come play!

The service was great. The servers were very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was fun. There was 8 of us and we all enjoyed ourselves.

Read the reviews on Drake's and decided to try it. That was a great decision. We had the Patty Melt burger and the Beer Cheese & Bourbon Bacon Burger. They were both delicious choices. The Beer Cheese Burger was very moist, perfectly cooked, but a...More
