Have eaten here many times and the food is always good. But... I like these people, so I hate to 'but' ... but this place is slow service, every time. Go when you plan to have a slow pace, or don't care about the wait...More

We love Drake's Inn! The view of 4th lake is so beautiful and the bar/restaurant is nice and open and breezy. It's nice for a family dinner or a night with adults! The food is delicious and the menu has plenty to pick from. I...More

Drakes has been a landmark on Rte 28 for more than a few decades. I remember it during the early 70s. Good, basic economical meals--sometimes there is quite a wait for service. A "locals" bar that has learned to live with seasonal sand tourists. I...More

First this: the food is good, portions just right, and prices very reasonable. But ... We were there on a Thursday for breakfast. One one other couple seated in the dining room. It took the waitress a good 10 minutes to "notice" us. Once she...More

This is the best place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't come here in a hurry. Relax. That's why you are on vacation.

Food was okay (n terrible, not great) and the prices were okay. But service was insanely slow. There were an adequate number of wait staff for the number of patrons so I assume the hold up had to be in the kitchen. Took me 30...More

We have gone to Drakes for many years since my wife's family has owned property in Inlet since the 1950's. The property was sold several years ago and we have made trips to Inlet every few years since then. Went there for lunch the first...More

we were very disappointed with Drakes- we had not been there in years- and we had very bad service, and the food took forever. I ordered a "super salad" - and was told it had to be made special by the chef- so I was...More

I like it almost in spite of myself. Good place to go for dinner if you like yesterday's menu; think "comfort food." Not particularly hospitable or friendly to a solo traveler. What I like is a certain authenticity and the absence of surprises. Food's someplace...More
