Everything was great, but they didn’t do anything for my daughters birthday even after asking me and they didn’t even wish her a happy birthday. So after a two hundred dollar meal that was disappointing.

We’ve tried many times to eat at the Drake but it’s always packed. Recently drove past on a Saturday and noticed not too busy- probably due to CoronaVirus. So we stopped in. Had a lovely booth, friendly waiters and fantastic food and service. The bartender was a little stingy with an $11 glass of wine was my only complaint.

We enjoyed our dinner; we both ordered off the prix fix menu and it was a lot of food. The lemon cloud pie is amazing. Our waiter was excellent.

Everyone one was outstanding particularly our server. The 4-H hush puppies as a starter was great and highly recommended, can’t get these anywhere else.

We will be back.

I feel quality has gone down a notch in this restaurant. Also do not like that they have turned away from offering many small appetizers towards more conventional big plates. It decreases the fun and increases the price

The Drake is a great place for dining out. Not too casual and not too fancy. Great ambience!

When we first arrived we requested to sit in a booth. As we were being seated, our server immediately came to the booth and made rude comments and treated us as though we were not sure we weren’t worth any of her time. Throughout the night she was rude, bossy, made numerous rude, unnecessary comments and even shushed us a few times. The food was phenomenal but after spending $300+ with our awful server, I don’t think we will be returning any time soon.

My wife and I go to The Drake frequently, but this was my first time bringing my parents and our first time having brunch. They were huge fans and could not stop talking about how good the food was, and the brunch is OKC’s best kept secret (we were the only people there until 11AM or so). My dad was even loving the playlist they had going (lol)! Can’t wait to come back again.

Overly priced for the quality. Fair but not great. Tables too small, loud. Patrons seated too near each other.
The cheese grits were nothing like grits, more like gravy. Oysters ok but too pricey.
Disappointed, especially on a special occasion.

We have been meaning to try the Drake for years. Finally did, to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was an outstanding experience. Food, service, value were all excellent. We had an appetizer (the hushpuppies...you must do this), two entrees (lobster roll for me, catfish for her), and a nice bottle of wine for $150 with tip. Will definitely be back!

We have been to the Drake many times and it has been one of our favorite restaurants. But since June of 2019 something has changed.

Our salads were slathered with dressing. The main course came out before we even started eating the salads. Main courses were poor. We aren’t picky eaters but this was disappointing.

Drinks were excellent and the manager was very responsive to our complaints.

Overall I feel sad because we have always loved this place. The last two visits however, something has changed.

Overall very good. I ordered the scallops. There was something on them that was WAAAY too salty. Had to try to scrape it off. I should’ve sent it back but didn’t. Other than that, everything was fine. Everyone in our party had a perfect experience.

We finally, after years of saying we should, tried The Drake. Ambiance and decor is not very warm or inviting, though booth seating was very comfortable; fairly noisy from bar area even though it wasn't very crowded. The menu offers a wide selection of seafood, with many raw bar choices. The prix fixe option provides a good value, even with our "upgrades" to sea bass and scallops. The lcam chowder was clam-filled without lots of potatoes -- a real plus. The calamari appetizer with a kung pao sauce didn't work for me. The sea bass was with roast veggies and a ginger sauce was very good; the scallops dish was mediocre (risotto was too salty). Nothing rose to the exceptional level that other Good Egg restaurants usually offer. The highlight of the menu was the chocolate hushpuppies for dessert -- original and sinfully chocolatey. Our server, Amber, was great -- friendly, proficient, knowledgeable.

This is my go to for my birthday every year or even if we're just passing through. Amazing food, although I do wish they would add a couple new items to the menu.
