The restaurant is a bit worn, and the menu rarely (never?) changes. Yet, it is a must stop. Friday's fish fry is also offered broiled and cajun broiled. Chicken Parm on Saturday (and Wednesdays in the summer) is worth the trip.

We had dinner at Drakes recently. There was only one other party in the restaurant when we sat down in a booth. They had already been served. We ordered and were served salad and bread quickly. Then we waited about 40 minutes for our entrees....More

I am glad that some other customers had better experiences than I did. But my time at Drake's was a disaster. I called ahead for a take-away order: a 12" pizza and a dozen wings. When I arrived half an hour later as instructed, I...More

We enjoyed the food and companionship at Drake's Inn over the decades. It is quaint, personal, and relaxing. A typical mountain diner.
