Our first time at Drake. We had lunch which we found to be very good. We were most impressed with the service by all the staff. Everyone was helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back.
I was visiting from San Francisco, and Drake turned out to be one of my favorite restaurants I’ve ever been to. If you like a casual vibe, really great service, and outstanding food, you will love Drake. Can’t wait for my next visit!
Amazing dinner with my kids. Staff were excellent and prompt. Reservation time was spot on. I live in Redmond and usually getting in when tourist season is in full force is difficult, but made reservations same day. Will be back.
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.
I always enjoy it here. It is a little different but always enjoyable. Friendly service and very good food.
Everything was great! My first time there and will definitely be back.
Fantastic food options and reasonably priced. Very cool vibe and atmosphere. Excellent service to boot.
Overall great experience from service to quality of food.
We have enjoyed Drake since it opened in Bend. The food is consistently great, the service prompt and friendly leading to an excellent dining experience. The last couple of times we have been in, we have ordered the specials which have been both creative and sumptuous.
Food was great. It was a bit cool inside while dining, but overall it was a great time.
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......
Amazing as always!
First time in.....I knew it was a bar with dining so the noise wasn't too surprising on a Friday night. The service was attentive and great! The salmon I had was cooked perfectly, the fried chicken that is popular was good, but nothing special. Would come back again though, but have to decide for the money spent if I wouldn't do appetizers and a drink next time.
Ate here on a previous visit to Bend and loved it. On our return trip we made it a point to revisit and were equally impressed. I never would have thought I'd willingly eat kale, but the Grilled Kale Salad is amazing. Likewise, the Roasted Brussels Sprouts. As for the entrees, I can personally vouch for Ira's Pork Shank and the Buttermilk Fried Chicken, but I don't think you can go wrong with any of the other dinner items. Price is very reasonable given the outstanding quality. Our party of six only spent ~$300 including drinks and tip! Oh, and the service was excellent. Attentive and friendly, without being intrusive. Haven't eaten at a ton of other places in Bend, but I don't feel like I need to. Go, and enjoy!
The sea bass special was absolutely amazing. We will certainly be returning to Drake on our next trip to Bend. Thank you Chef and staff at Drake.🇺🇸
The food and the service were the weak areas. Wait staff - meh. Seemed a bit indifferent. I ordered fennel carrot soup. Lacked flavor. Ok. Entree- shrimp and grits. Awful. Bacon barely cooked. I set it aside. Shrimp tasted fishy. Not fresh. We were visiting w friends and if I ordered new dish it would throw timing off. Given bacon not well cooked and shrimp was fishy the entire entree was not appealing. Barely ate.
Nice selection. All food was excellent. Salads were generous and delicious.
Service Wes amazing. The food was fantastic
Very good meal. Great Southern touch.
Would definitely go to again when I am in Bend
Why do something unique and distinctive and not do it well? The popcorn they provided before the meal in an interesting white paper bag was stale and lower quality - for a few cents more and a little effort, they could nail this. The menu wanted to show some finer dining tint, but despite advertised as coming with brussel sprouts, one dish was served with no veg at all. The other, fried chicken, was poorly (non)seasoned flat boneless thin filets. Their fresh fish was salmon and farm raised, greenwashed as being okay because it was from Skuna Bay. Evidently no desserts are offered. Great drinks, wonderful service.
Great service, fun atmosphere. The Skuna salmon dish was absolutely amazing.
We like Drake and have been there several times. Our biggest complaint is with open table. We asked for a booth on open table and it was not relayed to Drakes
Had great seating, great service, and great food!
Drake has delicious food and cocktails. The service was outstanding and the meal was terrific.
Good lunch time casual place! Nice steak sandwich and crispy fries.
Excellent again. Last time we stopped in for breakfast and it was very good. This time we used opentable for a reservation for dinner. Everything was very well made from the food to the drinks. I would reccomend this restaurant to anyone who wants to have an excellent dining experience.
It was very busy and service was a little slow because of it however, they comped us 1 round of drinks for it so that definitely was great! Overall servers were knowledgeable and upbeat for it being a packed Saturday night. The yuzu ceasar and fried chicken were great. The pork shank and crab fritters were solid/ good but nothing to write home about. I would definitely come back. Oh also the duck fat sazerac was excellent.
Ordered an appetizer that didn't show up. Waiter owned up to it, brought it out with our meal and didn't charge us. I had a burger and it was just ok. Didn't seem like a very high quality beef. I'd try Drake out again to see if it was a one time fluke on service and quality of food.
Went to Drake to celebrate a birthday. Glad we made reservations, it's not a large place and if you want to sit more than 2 people I would suggest a reservation if you don't like waiting. We all ordered something different and none of us were disappointed. Have a lot of different choices which makes it nice for variety. The staff were nice and attentive and we enjoyed our meal. I would definitely come back.
Drake has long been one of our favorite spots in Bend. There was a bit of a hiccup this time in that we had to wait about a half hour for a table we had reserved. But, the staff, as always, did what they could to ameliorate that, and everything ultimately came off well.

It is always a pleasure to dine here. The food is always delicious. My favorite is the carrot humus; please put it back on the menu. Overall a great experience.
Really a nice cozy dining experience. Service was genuine and well paced. Can't wait to go back!
It was great Drake always delivers period, great great service and the food is sooooo good. Every time we have eaten here the food is amazing, highly recommend Drake!!
Great experience, wonderful service and delicious food. Highly recommend.
We always enjoy the food and drinks at Drake. The popcorn is amazing!
Great meal with ambiance - the service was prompt and our special needs were not a problem (gluten free). Food was delicious.
I was disappointed that the salad with steak I used to get there called Steak and frites and also the other steak salad with blue cheese has been replaced. The salad itself was good but the steak was cold and tough - and the presentation was nowhere near as well done - not at all like the delicious, tender steak I have had there in the past. The beer was good and although it was noisy I didn’t mind it. I wonder why they changed such great steak salads for a kind of mediocre one.
Disappointed in signature fried chicken entre. Breading was too heavy. Side dish of potatoes and collard greens were very tastey.
Also endive salad with chicken was not great.
Like this restaurant but feel it has now entered into the "must order right dish" category in order to have great dining experience.
This was our first visit so I was taking a chance when I invited 4 other friends along. Everyone raved. The food was so good. A variety of entrees was ordered at our table and NONE were disappointing. The duck was especially delicious as was the lamb chop special. Definitely want to go again.
