We LOVE their brunch menu. The Chicken and Waffles is not to be missed. They serve wonderful local ingredients. The menu evolves with the seasons. Stop by for weekend brunch or any meal. The staff are friendly. You will not be disappointed.

Maybe Drake would have been better on a less busy night, but unfortunately on a 4th of July weekend, they did not live up to the rave reviews of friends who live in Bend. At least they were apologetic.

I love Drake. Food was good, very rich. My chops were cold but our excellent server had them warmed in no time. One of our party complained that the shrimp and grits had a very small portion of grits - grits are cheap, load 'em up! Others had the Drake Burger and loved it. Drinks were good.

We made reservations, knowing we had to get over to a concert after dinner. And, given an event on Wall Street, we had to move our reservation up, and then call the restaurant (again) to let them know we were still running late! The staff were fabulous - great team approach to ensuring great service. All of our dishes were very good. My sister and I shared a salad and two delicious small plates; the guys each had the Waygu steak. We will definitely go back. However, it does get busy at dinner hour, so it gets VERY noisy. If you have someone who has trouble hearing, go early or late.

Food poorly prepared—Drake salad had way too much feta cheese—salmon “seared” in (nonstick?) pan until rubbery and extremely dry and tasteless. Server failed to mention this dish came with more feta cheese. Looked like a nice piece of salmon to begin with—completely ruined. If the server had come by sooner, I would have (and should have) sent back.

Casual atmosphere, the carrot hummus was excellent!
It was a bit too loud with open kitchen concept and popcorn served in place of bread was interesting but, served in a white paper sack was kind of a waste of paper, just sayin...

Good eclectic food at reasonable prices. Pleasant neighborhood feel to it. I thought it a nice touch with the free mini bag of popcorn to munch on while waiting for your food instead of the usual bread or chips.

Was able to snag a reservation right before closing hour during the holiday weekend. Jacqueline was our server and was very attentive and knowledgable about the craft cocktains and the entrees. If you like fried chicken this is a great place to get that. I ordered the King Salmon special and it was finished to perfection. Great wine selection by the glass as well. I have come to Drake for happy hour and for breakfast and this dinner was among the best I have enjoyed in Bend.

I would not recommend Drake to friends with kids, seeing as the manager is not welcoming to children. The holiday weekend also tied up the waitstaff so our orders took a long time and we’re possibly forgotten. Based on the food, Drake is exceptional.

Our server,Jordan was knowledgable and friendly. He was attentive with our drink refills and clearing our plates. The table we sat at was postage size so the dishes had to be cleared frequently. The food was amazing. Best burgers we’ve had in a while. The dungeness crab starter is a must!

Always a favorite in Bend. Love the seasonal menus. Drake is innovative and comfortable at the same time. Had the crispy duck leg with risotto. The duck skin was crispy. The meat - moist and tender on the inside. Perfect. Risotto was well prepared and flavorful. My dining companion enjoyed the butcher board special. Service is always attentive and friendly. We will definitely return.

Made my reservation at the last minute. Was thankful to have this available on Easter Sunday.

Ordered the Huevos Rancheros - They were AWESOME. Very well seasoned and presented very nice.

The Cinnamon roll however, was not up to par. Possibly left over from the day before? Was tough, hard and dry (Like how bread is, when nuked in the microwave) and was SWIMMING in sugar sauce. I peeled away the outer layers and consumed the inside part. Was somewhat weak on flavor as well. Definitely not worth what I was paying for it.

Told the waiter and he really didn't have much of a response.

Will return in the future, just will be careful NOT to order the cinnamon roll again - disappointed......
