Beer burgers and sushi? I was skeptical with this unusual pairing, but as it turns out the food was good. I had sushi of the month, while my family had burgers and flat bread pizza. Everyone loved their entrees. We also had cinnamon and caramel,...More

We live in Brentwood, but my family always wants to go to Drake's. When the weather is nice they roll up the doors and it feels like you're outside (the front room). The service is always really impressive...from refilling iced tea to checking on your...More

Met some work colleagues here for a quick dinner and I enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was unique in combination, but pretty average in taste. The beer list and service are both strong. I'll certainly try it again.

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.

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!
