I always love Drago's. It is one of my favorite restaurants. However, my visit was marred by a faux window sill that was filled with dust, insects, and debris. Our server, Ray (sp), was very attentive and immediately found something to clean the area for us to maximize our dining experience. This was after the front of the house staff was notified of the filth that sat in the faux window sill and he chose to do nothing about it.

The age of the facility and limited maintenance is beginning to show.

Took family in town for the holidays. They wanted seafood so thought we’d try Drago’s since I had never been there. The lobster was overcooked, but the charbroiled oysters were great. The rest of the meal was average. Service was good. Won’t go back for lobster, but might try something else.

Overall good as expected. Gumbo was a lukewarm. Oysters were great. Our party of eight enjoyed the food thoroughly. Service was great. Lighting is hit or miss. Overhead lights are blinding in some spots and absent in others.

I was disturbed after having to move to a different table. They gave me the worst table in the restaurant. Server was nice but was not attentive.

Appetizer was luke warm (the crab). Our waitress did not come check on us after meals were served. Expectations of a fine dining place were sadly missed. Plus, there was a table on the other side of ours who had kids listening to a program with the volume at full blast. The manager came to us and asked if we would rather be moved to another table than to just deal with the noise straight off. We liked the table we had, but he would have rather moved us than deal with asking the parents to turn the volume down.

My food was cold. I ask the waitress can they recook my fries and onion rings. She came back 45 mins later after giving me my ticket , saying I just told the cook to drop you some more fries. I told her don’t even worry about it. Our waitress didn’t even check on us

The food was not seasoned and very bland. For what it cost the food was less than mediocre. We had a party of 9 at my suggestion and we were very disappointed.

Very much enjoyed a cup of the seafood gumbo. For the main course, had the shrimp and grits. The grits were just a little dry, but overall the meal was great. Really enjoyed the cheesecake for dessert. Was just the right size for after dinner. The server was friendly and helpful.

The table was dirty when we sat down with napkins and forks on the floor underneath. The hostess was rude, as soon as we walked in the door she said, “we close at 9.” Ummm well we have an 830 reservation lady…so you shouldn’t seat tables at 830 if you close the doors at 9.

The food was good and our server was nice…ensuring our kiddos food was in first.

It was..okay.

The restaurant itself had a very distinct stale smell upon entry.

Our waiter looked like he just rolled out of bed and came to work. Despite the restaurant not being that full...
He took awhile to get our happy hour drinks.

The shrimp pasta was pretty bland....

Probably won’t be back.

The oysters were very salty I ate two and left them on the plate. The alligator bite were not seasoned well. The red fish (caught of the day) was good.

First it was freezing in the restaurant and we ate with our jackets on. Service was ver slow but I don’t think it was the server’s fault. Twenty minutes to get a drink from the bar. Each course took twenty to thirty minutes. My chargrilled oysters were not hot. The imitation butter was pooled on top unmelted. One of the worst dinners we’ve had. We were really looking forward to the oysters.
I will say the raw oysters were excellent.

Waited in line a while to get a seat at 5:30 even though we had a reservation. Things seemed understaffed and the service was slow at first. After that, things picked up and the food was good.

I ordered the grilled oysters, and my wife ordered pasta. The server held my oysters until her pasta was ready; that allowed time for my oysters to cool to less than my preferred temperature.
