    Don't let the menu online fool you. This is an expensive restaurant with $40+ steak entrees. I wouldn't count this as a $$ restaurant; it's more of a $$$. They do have appetizer pizzas (very good) and burgers, but it's a white table cloth and wine glass type of place. They have an extensive drink menu, at a price of course. I had the duck breast, which was excellent. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. Just wasn't expecting the price.

    We have been here before. The bar carries a great selection liquors and wines. My wife and I had the spinach artichoke dip which endeavour and creamy. We also took half of it home. We both then had the glazed duck over a root vegetable hash. The duck was the best I have had and duck is one of my favorites. Again we took half home and look forward to leftovers this evening. I would definitely recommend Drew 's not only is the food great, but you definitely get your monies worth. Drew was there and visited the guests.

    This is a lovely place, with great care placed on both presentation and taste. The spinach artichoke dip with chips is a must! On Tuesday evening wine is half price and they have quite a decent list to choose from. The dinner specialities are something to seriously consider and their house bread, which varies, is not to be missed. We had a white pepper rosemary! Great value, clean and lovely, go and enjoy!

    Despite the fact that the restaurant was mostly empty (there were about 5 tables & 3 waiters), it took waiter 20 min to get our drink order then he forgot our kid's milk ( 2 twins sitting in high chairs). It took 45 min to receive appetizers then main course came 5 minutes later! Never offered us bread while we waited. Never brought bread when we asked for it. There was a fly in the iced tea. Had to ask for refills...shall I keep going??? Will not return.

    Dined on 5/31/2014
    Decided to return to Drews for my birthday...was disappointed to find how the menu has shrunk recently. The only available seafood selections were Atlantic Salmon and Catfish. The special -- Salmon and Bleu Cheese -- was out. Really? The wine is no value either. Consequently, this probably will be our last time at Drew's. Now, for the good, both of our steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Spinach tasted OK. Caesar salad tasted fresh made that day, but was too dry...we have had much better.

    I have lost count of how many times I have eaten at Drew's. If you are looking for a great meal, or just a buger Drew's is you place. If you want to dress up or just wear shorts Drew's is your place. If you just have the need to seat in a beautiful place and enjoy a good drink Drew's is your place. You dont know who I am but chances are if your are at Drew's I am setting there also.

    Very attractive spot for indoor or outdoor dining. Our waitress did a great job. Have been there before for dinner and had meals that were good for the price, but this time we went for brunch. Bacon was crunchy, French toast was not bad, but the eggs Benedict were a real letdown. Eggs were too runny, hollandaise sauce had no flavor and Canadian bacon (if that is what it was) was a very thin ( like shaved ) single piece of meat that also had no flavor. Got toast, but no butter. When asked our waitress said they only serve butter if it is asked for.

Beautiful setting and tons of breakfast favorite options, lunch, seafood and carving stations. Not to even mention the desserts. It was exactly what we were looking for and would recommend to anyone.

    Brunch was fabulous and there was plenty to pick from. I started off at the seafood table and ate shrimp, oysters, and sushi. From there I hit the meats with a slab o prime rib, chicky and pork. Then to the bfast part with eggs Benedict, bacon and a blintze. It was a lot but most were smaller portions so I could enjoy the entire menu. Food was tasty, hot, and portioned just right for what I was doing

    The mixed salad and halibut were outstanding as was my wife's cocktail. The flank steak was good, but not outstanding. The service was not the best. It was slow, the server forgot the bread and also forgot to bring my drink. The dining room was loud due to a (good) band at the bar.

    Drews offers excellent food. Professionally presented, they are pictures and candy to the eye. Service is seamless and wine list pretty good, not deep, but they offer some good wines. Bread basket brings 3 types of bread, artichoke spinach dip with homemade chips is a repeat....gotta do this if you like these flavors. They prepare seafood perfect, never dry. Go and enjoy.

    This is the second or third restaurant at this location and it was not very full, though we were there at 6:30 PM, which might be earlier for its regular crowd. Was disappointed they did not have mint jelly to go with their rack of lamb. I grew up in NJ, IL and AZ and it was always available in those areas.

    This is one of my absolute favorite brunch spots. We try eating here at least once a month. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Their food has never disappointed. Melt in your mouth pancakes, awesome French toast and the delicious eggs benedict. The serving size is excellent for sharing. Usually everyone in our group wants a little sample of each other’s plates since it’s all so tasty. The ambiance is informal and approachable, without being overly casual. The mimosas are divine!!!! Also the bar is fully stocked with all my favorite brands of spirits.

    We've eaten at Drew's several times, at different times of day, and have a good feel for the place. Each experience has been excellent. If you've ever eaten good (no, great) food in Manhattan, Drew's will touch a soft spot in your heart. From the perfectly prepared NYC-style thin crust pizza (fresh ingredients, great cheese & sauce, and slightly charred crust) to the PERFECT Reuben or pastrami on rye (huge portions of deli meats flown in fresh from NYC), you can't go wrong. Desserts are amazing, but humongous. Staff are always friendly and attentive. We have yet to fully explore Drew's menu, but plan to do so, if I can get myself to stop ordering the Reuben (yes, it's THAT good). Overall: EXCELLENT.
