We spent a couple of hours there on a Friday night. Enjoyed good live music and that recalled old memory. Delicious chicken wings.

10 to 2, who knew, limited breakfast menu, but delicious choices and good value. Friendly fast service, good weekend choice.

I finally made it to the Drake Inn in Canmore! I have driven by it a hundred times but made time to stop in for a beer. Average hotel (it does have rooms but am unsure how good they are or not) bar. We each had a beer and just enjoyed the peace. It wasn't too busy (mid-afternoon) but probably... More

Food was good, drinks priced right and service was very accommodating. Great Poutine, large portion so don't let the price scare you. They have daily specials too which we did not order but when we saw them wished we had.

Reading some of these reviews it appears the Drake is "hit or miss", but we had a good experience there. Spent the morning out on some local trails, then came here for some lunch. It was somewhat quiet on a Sunday afternoon, so service was good. The menu had enough choices to satisfy everyone in our group, and the price... More

Incredible crispy honey garlic wings (and we are picky on wings!). The spinach and artichoke dip was good. It was taco tuesday night, tacos were cheap but the taste was average and the meat was dry. Service could be much better for quiet night.

Popped in for couple beers on Friday night. Had a cover charge for DJ,s. Which i wouldnt mind but they were rank rotten. Place in general needs a revamp . Rose in Crown though not the greatest is better option across the street.

Appreciate the review Scott. We ask for $5 at the door to help recoup the costs of live entertainment, perhaps you missed the band? We have a live band on the main stage each Friday and Saturday along with a DJ in our nightclub. Hope to see you in Canmore again soon. More

My friends and I stopped in to eat here after shopping. From the outside, it looked charming and we wanted to enjoy the patio. Unfortunately, we were greeted with irritation. The server was rude and ignorant and gave us attitude when we asked if we could sit on the patio. When we settled on the the patio, the server did... More

Between the poor service and the cranky service my group recieved i wouldnt recommend going back, food was sub par. The umbrellas flew out and hit patrons, the staff stood indoors watching and laughing. The waitress slammed chairs and trays, simple requests were recieved with scowls and tones. Wouldnt recommend!
