Been here a few times and the services has been lacking. Bar food is just OK. Always seems to be crowded. Parking is a nightmare.

We love the sushi here. We had a combo of nigiri and a special roll. Really delicious. Had one of the sushi platters last time. Also really good. Nice casual place with open windows at the front in warmer weather. A favourite.

Beer burgers and sushi? I was skeptical with this unusual pairing, but as it turns out the food was good. I had sushi of the month, while my family had burgers and flat bread pizza. Everyone loved their entrees. We also had cinnamon and caramel,...More

Sorry for not seeing this sooner. I'm sure you know by now we do not take reservations for our Drake's restaurants. Have a wonderful day!

A restaurant that loves beer and a bar that loves food. Over 20 craft beers on tap, big burgers and the freshest sushi in town. Your go-to for lunch, dinner and late-night, Drake's is a free-wheeling, fun-loving kind of joint. A place to hang out and let your hair down. A place to let yourself go a little. Come play!
