Great food; AWESOME service (Karissa was AWESOME); reasonable prices. Highly recommend the Chicken Chop Salad and my wife loved the Chicago Roll Sushi.

Everyone here is Sysco-Certified to be frozen or canned and reheated or fried. Gross food but it's a young bar scene. Stick with the drinks and the music.

Went the first time on a Friday for lunch, thinking I'd be meeting a friend and due to an epic calendar fail realized I was a week early! I decided to have lunch anyway and so glad I did...Ale battered fish, coleslaw and a Falls City Ale Hipster Repellent. Perfectly cooked, generous portions with creamy coleslaw it was as good...

We all enjoy going to Drakes. Burgers are very good and the beer is always ice cold. Service has always been very good. How many places can you get beer burger and sushi?

I have been to Drake's several times. I usually get the fish sandwich and fries. It is my favorite. The cocktails are awesome. Never disappointed! Keep up the good work

The food was good. My friend had some sushi and I had a burger. It wasn't the best burger I have ever had but it... More

Great atmosphere. Large garage doors that open to the outside on a nice day and lots of TV to watch . Great draft beer selection . Limited menu; salads, burgers and sushi . We don't care for sushi, although it looked pretty good when the people around us ordered it . The burgers good; nothing special. We had an issue... More

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!
