Dray Bar and Grill is a gastropub located within the Drayton Mills Marketplace. Menu includes a range of locally-sourced, fresh foods for carnivores and herbivores alike.

We categorize our offerings as "Innovative Comfort Food - I like to take recipes that everyone can relate to, and make them with the best ingredients, and give them a little twist. Our Chicken Fried Steak is a slice of Certified Angus Beef Ribeye, with a crisp buttermilk coating and rich black pepper chicken gravy - a best seller! While we have wings, we also do Buffalo Cauliflower bites - a vegetarian alternative!

- Chef Bob Munnich

Been to Dray Bar several times and always pleased. Tonight, not so much. Took WAY to long for everything. 2.5 hours total visit! Food came out wrong when it finally did come. Taste wasn't bad, but not what we'd expect here. Manager came to offer free dessert to make up for it, and even that took like a half hour to get. Hope it was just an off night...

The only downside was the service. No appetizer plates accompanied appetizers and one of us finally went to the bar to try to get some. It took way too long to get the charcuterie board. And the entrees were there right after it arrived. Do it was hard to enjoy it. Otherwise...the experience was good. Might have turned the musician’s sound down a little. Hard to have a conversation.

Started off very well with the Pimento Cheese bites, they were delicious. Server was friendly. This was our first visit to this restaurant and based on other reviews, we had high expectations. My wife ordered the filet mignon and I ordered the lamb.

Wife’s filet came out fine, but my lamb was severely overcooked. It looked dry and burnt from 10 feet away. I was baffled the chef, manager, and server allowed the dish to even leave the kitchen. I bit into it just to confirm my suspicion and it was like chewing bad beef jerky. I immediately sent it back and they offered to cook a new one. I politely declined and just went with the filet mignon instead, after tasting my wife’s dish. I will say the filet came out and was cooked perfectly, however by the time I received it, my wife was finished with her meal. This was our anniversary dinner, so I was very disappointed I couldn’t actually enjoy our wine and food together uninterrupted.

Fast forward to the bill. Received the check and was charged full price for the filet that I didn’t really want, which was $10 more than the lamb that I actually ordered. I was pretty shocked I was charged for my dish at all, considering the time I had to wait to get my food after the they screwed up my original plate, but I’m a reasonable person and asked they at least only charge me for the original dish that I ordered.

I have worked in many upscale restaurants in my younger days and I understand things happen, but the manager and server should have done the right thing here, without me having to confront them. It put me in an awkward spot, unnecessarily. They did reduce my plate 50%, but at this point I was just frustrated because I had to ask for a discount and then had to wait for them to correct the bill, after already waiting for my food. For the cost of this restaurant, I was disappointed by the lack of customer service. I still left over 20% tip, but probably shouldn’t have. Not sure I will return based on this experience.

I apologize for your experience. Our lamb ribs are slow cooked for several hours to assure they are tender and delicious. I'll check on the preparation of them and make sure they are following the recipe. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. - Chef Bob

Since the virus situation, we usually sit outdoors. What made it a problem was they have a fly problem.

This made it difficult to eat our food. In fact we just boxed it up and got out of there. Ugh.

I am sure this was not a problem that just happened. I am sure there is a way 5o fix it.

Our service was TERRIBLE. Server didn’t bring drinks, never put in our orders for appetizers and salads. Our food came before drinks. We broke a glass because because our table was never prebussed, and no one ever came to clean it up until the very end. Checks had incorrect items on them. It was just overall bad experience.

This was our first restaurant meal since the start of the pandemic. They had lots of outdoor seating and were careful about sanitation and cleanliness. The food was wonderful (don't overlook the corn chowder). Got a smoothie to go for dessert. Food was well prepared and well presented.
