“Cuisine Comeback ;)”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Drake's going under new management has been an immense improvement not only in food, but also in customer service. Now a restaurant ran by family that makes you feel like family. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Drake's is the perfect place for all sorts of occasions. The atmosphere is appropriate for a date, buisness meeting, or having dinner with family and/or friends.
I have dined here many times, including the bar area. Each time has been a wonderful experience. A few of the dinner meals I have had include the filet mignon, chicken parmigiana, and the scallops. Each was positively pleasing to the palate. Can't decide what to have? Ask. The staff here will not steer you wrong.

“Surprise!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Drakes has been (until now) the object of scorn by myself and others. There have been several changes in ownership, and, none of them good until now. Friends insisted we try them once more, knowing our past disappointments in eating there. All I can say is wow! The food is simply wonderful, and, great value for the money. I chose the linguini la gosta, and was presented with a plate filled with a half Maine lobster, sea scallops, jumbo shrimp, and cherrystone clams in a delicious sauce over al dente linguini- and all for $23.00! This is a definite must try!

“Save room for cannoli!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We don't always have room for dessert, especially after a nice meal at Drakes but it is worth it to save room, their cannoli is so good! One is plenty for two people to share and it is a perfect end to a delicious meal.

“outstanding food”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Better eggplant than I had in Italy. And it was brought by a quick, interested server. Great family place at reasonable prices.
