This is the best place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't come here in a hurry. Relax. That's why you are on vacation.

Food was okay (n terrible, not great) and the prices were okay. But service was insanely slow. There were an adequate number of wait staff for the number of patrons so I assume the hold up had to be in the kitchen. Took me 30 minutes just to get my intro garden salad and 45 minuets to get my entree,... More

We have gone to Drakes for many years since my wife's family has owned property in Inlet since the 1950's. The property was sold several years ago and we have made trips to Inlet every few years since then. Went there for lunch the first week of Aug 2015. Very disappointed this time. The atmosphere is homey and clean, which... More

we were very disappointed with Drakes- we had not been there in years- and we had very bad service, and the food took forever. I ordered a "super salad" - and was told it had to be made special by the chef- so I was really looking forward to a nice salad. What I got after an hour -was iceberg... More

I like it almost in spite of myself. Good place to go for dinner if you like yesterday's menu; think "comfort food." Not particularly hospitable or friendly to a solo traveler. What I like is a certain authenticity and the absence of surprises. Food's someplace around a little better than average, but I'm not a foodie.

Stopped in for lunch a couple of times. Service was slow but the food was very good. Guess it all balances out.

Hope you have two hours for dinner on a Friday or Saturday night. Relax with a couple of cocktails before you go to dinner here.

Four of us had breakfast at Drake's on Sunday morning. While the food was average, the service was God awful. Only two other tables had patrons and yet it took an hour and ten minutes from the time we walked in until the time we were served. No excuse for that unless the chickens hadn't laid our eggs yet, which... More

Not from New York, my husband and I stopped into Drake's after an afternoon of hiking in the surrounding area. We went in and sat at the bar and in no time were welcomed by not only the bartender but the patrons (locals) too! Drake's has a very friendly atmosphere and we were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of... More
