    We couldn’t order the platter bc the chef wasn’t there and it’s his decision. Zero flexibility bc chicken was out and couldn’t sub. Service was slow. Food was good when it came.

    Our food was tasty and good value for the money, with the steak being particularly tender. The service was just how I like it - cheerful and timely without being overly intrusive. We’ll be back for sure!

    We went on a Thursday night. Our waitress (unfortunately forget her name, she was from Quebec) was outstanding. So polite, very attentive and the food was well below any other pubs price in the area! Great drink specials. Will be back.

    The ribs were terrible, it's bad when you need a steak knife to seperate it and the pulled pork was grizzly and tough as well. Coleslaw was good, fries were ok. Biscuit was dry and no taste. The drinks were good and the waiter was very attentive and amazing.

    Appetizers arrived at the same time as the main course. Ruins the whole point of an appetizer. Felt like we were being rushed to finish and get out.

    By far worst server we have ever experienced. Had to end up asking a different server to help us get out First drinks (finally got there after our appetizer arrived) and had to chase another different server down for a 2nd drink. Nice place and great atmosphere but brutal server experience

    We love the Drake! We made a reservation to be sure we would get a table. When we got there they sat us at the worst table right by the outdoor speakers while people with no reservations were getting really good tables. Food was amazing and the views incredible. Just look after those who take the tine to book.

    Great place to take the family it was not quiet so perfect for kids. Food was good for kids as well. Value for food is good. Their special was “smoked ribs” but they were definitely not smoked and were not fresh. If you got a table by the window the view is nice and in the summer it’d be great on the patio. Not somewhere I would return to eat but maybe a drink or appy!

    SMOKEHOUSE!! Need I say more. Ribs and Brisket were tender and delicious! Servers were attentive and pleasant. 10% off food order if you present your hotel key. Family of 3 ate and bill was less than $70.00 including drinks. Would definitely go again.

    Beef brisket was dry and lacked flavour. Not moist and tender at all. My partners pulled pork was alright as well, it lacked flavour besides being drowned in BBQ sauce and it could have been more moist. Overall an alright experience, was hoping for better.

    It was very busy and not enough staff. The waitress was trying to keep up but having difficulty. Gravy missing from the order but charged for. Second beer didn't end up coming until too late. Food tasted good though. Saturday evening so understandable, likely just need more staffing.

    We were a little stuck as it was Valentine's Day and we decided to extend our stay another night. They did not have any draft available to start with, but the guys made other choices. Then after we ordered they told us only one of the two that ordered ribs could have them. Then they came back again and said the second person would need to order something else as they were sold out. That was a bit of a let down especially to find out after it had already been ordered.
