This was our first and possibly last visit. It has very limited parking. On the day of our visit they had a $5.00 drink special. We ordered the drink "on the rocks." We also ordered a salad and a hamburger. Both were ok. When the bill arrived we were surprised to see a charge for "on the rocks" of $2.00 per drink. When we inquired what this fee was for we were told that was a charge for the ice in our drinks! Our server told us he "forgot" to tell us about this charge when we ordered our drinks. This is a first for us. Is this place an airline nickel and diming us for everything or a wanna be full service bar and restaurant? I agree with one reviewer's comments about the bathrooms. Way too small for a place this size.

I wasn't thrilled with the atmosphere or layout of the bar. It seemed very small and cramped. The singers at the piano were terrific.

I really wanted to like this place but I just don't get it?
Been 3 times; there seems to be no direction to what "The Drive" wants to be? As a result it's week.
Decor is confusing; kind of a sports bar?
Place in general is annoyingly loud.
Bathrooms are poorly designed and cheaply built.
We found servers to be inexperienced and not overly friendly.
Issues with poorly made drinks and/or servers having no idea what simple drinks are?
Food is reasonably priced but again quality issues each time. Examples; chicken ceaser salad missing the chicken, sliders lacking meat, etc...

Wish I had something more postivie to say :(

If you haven't been to The Drive, check it out! Great drinks, friendly staff, a nice cross section of the gay community just having fun together.

We met a friend here for drinks while we were on vacation. The patio is very nice and very spacious. Drinks were good and they had a good selection of beers on tap. Food is really tapas only. There were three of us and we each ordered an item and it was nice but not near enough to be considered a full dinner.

This is a a great place for a group of friends to gather and catch up while enjoying a few adult beverages.
