Never thought much of Pub food until I came here. Atmosphere was relax with conversations noticed but not loud. Timing of food coming out was appropriate and most noticeable was food was better than what I remember of your common "Pub food". Would definitely recommend and go back.

Went for St Patrick’s day and even though busy staff was great and attentive The nachos are very yummy as well as wings although wings were a bit pricey. Good beer selection. Upscale bar food. Would return for sure.

I booked ahead so we won’t have to wait long and expecting to get a decent seat Atleast. We had to wait awhile before someone was able to seat us. The table reserved for us was by the patio door which seemed isolated good thing there was another reserved better table in the middle so we sat there instead. Our attendant was courteous however the area she’s attending was quite busy so menu’s came in later. Drinks were fast though they don’t offer Moscow Mule; Bang Bang was the alternate didn’t like the taste; their take on Mojito was not good either. Food was excellent ordered fish tacos and butter chicken flatbread. Service was just fine, it’s just that our server seemed so keen on cleaning up after our plates asked us twice if we’re still finishing off our apple crumble dessert and the dessert was only half way through. The second time she asked I just sort of said yes. I have been going to Firkin at the Harbour, but I love Drake’s food better; though the cocktails at the Harbour is way better than that of Drake’s

Had our "Old Childhood Friends" Christmas Gathering at the Drake. Everyone had a GREAT Time. Great food, atmosphere, seating,.... and the Band was excepetional as usual. Kudos to Steve for ensuring we all got to sit together in our requested seating area. Waitress was very hospitable/friendly. Looking forward to returning again.

The food and service were both good. However, it was a little noisy on a Thursday night for a business meal. It's more appropriate for an after-work casual meet up place.

Totally average. Fast service for lunch was a plus. My entree (special chicken dish) was good. Side potatoes were undercooked.

I come to the Drake quite often and the service and food is usually good. On this particular visit though, the service was poor. I'm pretty sure our server went on break before taking our order - not impressed that when she finally came out of the back after 20 minutes, she stopped to talk to the bartender for a few minutes. Only when we got up to leave did she come running over. We only stayed because we were hungry and knew that his was not typical of he service here.

We were looking for a restaurant that was open on a Sunday celebrate Father's Day. We had no problems getting the reservation time we wanted, we were seated immediately and the attention from the waitress was right on point. Would definitely go again.

As always we are treated very well. "Our Fav ladies Eileen, Candice, Heather and Sam at the Bar take care of us" the rest of the staff is also very good! When there are wait times due to volume you let us know if we have to get out recommend food that is prepared quickly. Some of our troops love the Coors light/Canadian special day but then there are those of us that love love our "Firkin Fridays" Wine day.
Cheers So great to have a a place like the firkin to take a break from work

I really enjoyed the new menu and our food was excellent. The atmosphere is exactly what I enjoy on a Friday night after work. We did not get to hear the band, but I usually enjoy whomever they bring in. Service was great. Bartender accommodating as I am fussy with my drinks. Overall great experience.

I visited with my co-workers for a pre-Christmas work lunch and everyone enjoyed The Drake & Firkin. The server was incredibly attentive and enthusiastic, and we all really enjoyed the food. With my anglophilia, I particularly enjoyed the decor (the hat lights were so cute)!

Food came out at a good time which was good but I found the service to be overall slow. I did not like my meal. I ordered the buttermilk fried chicken. The server took it away at the end with my entire plate full with one bite taken and didn't even bother to ask whether I liked my meal. A little more attention to detail would go a long way. Lighting was also dim all night and it came on 30 mins before we left.

Great new menu, however, if there is an extra charge for a change on an order that should be advised up front. Ie: regular French fries changed for Sweet potatoe fries- extra charge $2.50??

We made a reservation for noon on a Friday to ensure we would be able to be back at the office within a reasonable time. We were seated immediately at noon. The waitress provided water right away as requested. We ordered about 5 minutes later, but our food didn't come until after 1:05pm. We had to eat quickly and leave for our 1:30pm meeting. Disappointed.

We were there on Mother's Day. The place was half empty and we were there around 1:30. It took over an hour to receive our food. Apologies came after 45 minutes to say the kitchen was "backed up". After an hour we finally complained and the food came out shortly thereafter. Most of the food was cold to warm. It was clear that it had been sitting out for a while. They did comp us the entire meal, but even for free, it wasn't the Mother's Day experience that I had hoped for when I was treating my wife and my mother. I doubt we'll be back.
