Great spot for brunch! Most seats will offer lake views. Servers knowledgeable about Gluten-free options on menu. Will return in the summer!

A very popular restaurant. The ambience is beach-side resort, quite informal, not a place for an intimate date. Service excellent and knowledgeable. All wines available by the glass. The food is middle of the road comfort food--tasty, well-prepared, and reasonably well presented. We shared the "sea-cuterie" plate: pickled herring, mackerel, and a salmon rillete with bread, pickled onion, etc. Very tasty. As a main, I had the lamb confit. We also had egg-plant fritters, and my wife had the mac and mushrooms, which she loved. Nothing really challenging or eye-opening, but all very good.

Food was excellent and our waiter had some great insight into local craft breweries and the offerings in the restaurant. Our service was initially slow, in fact, we waited ten minutes to be seated, and only after another customer mentioned to a waiter that we were still standing at the reservation desk. After that, our waiter was slow to approach us and bring drinks, but he redeemed himself later in the evening with his beer knowledge.

The Drake was the last stop on our weekend getaway, and it seems we saved the best for last. Great ambiance, excellent service, and amazing food. We both had the Drake Breakfast. We’d ordered the Blueberry Scones to start, and unfortunately they arrived just before the main dish- so they comped them for us. We didn’t even ask, or complain! Which shows the excellent level of service being provided. Would definitely recommend.

The food was lacklustre at best and wildly under seasoned. Very overpriced given how poor the food was!
Service was slow but not terrible.

I had booked this place a month in advance for a birthday. I even remarked in the reservation that it was a birthday, but...

We were running late, so called ahead to let them know... but it didn't matter, we lost our reservation and instead they sat us at the bar. The reason given was that each table is allotted two hours for dinner and they didn't want us to feel rushed. Our reservation was at 7:30, and when we left at 9:15 -- there were still lots of open tables. So either the Maitre'D didn't know the rhythms of the crowd very well... or well, I don't know.

The food was good and fine, but I don't know if it speaks well for a restaurant when the highlight of the evening was the cocktail. $24 for a burger and fries is always laughable though.

The dining experience overall I'd say makes it clear too that if you're not a guest of the hotel you're a second class guest.

Prince Edward County has lots of great restaurants, I'd recommend trying out one of the other great places for food and skipping this over priced place.

Not what we expected!
The restaurant is way more casual than we expected, you don’t need to dress up. The food is good with big portions. The service was so so... the view is amazing if you can have a table by the windows. It was a bit noisy to our taste.

Evening was fantastic ! We were celebrating my wife's 55th Birthday that evening . Reception at front desk was very cordial . Our greeter took our coats and hung them , then proceeded to escort us to our table . View was absolutely breathtaking as the waves crashed onto the shoreline . Our server was excellent . He offered valuable insight into the culinary offering for the evening . Choice of appetizer, entre and dessert were outstanding ! Will certainly recommend this dining experience to all of our friends ! Thanks for a wonderful evening Drake Devonshire !

Beautiful setting, our table was right infront of their large picture window so we sat looking out at the icy water. It was the perfect time to try the restuarant, only 3 or 4 other tables were filled at the time. Our food was delicious and the service was warm and prompt. We shared the fried chicken and waffles, roasted potatoes and brisket tostadas. I would absolutely return on a summer afternoon and enjoy their beautiful patio. The decor is bright, artsy and comfortable. You will not be disappointed with this experience.

The food options are all heavy. The menu needs refreshing it has been the same for over a year. We are fans and bring people here all the time but the menu needs to have some new items- keeping some of the old but surprising with new fresh options.

We enjoyed our night at the Drake overall. I was not aware that there would be no seating, and that it was more of a party/cocktail setting. Nevertheless, the food and drinks were excellent!!

In an area known for outstanding restaurants the Drake delivers, but also seems to have a reputation that it rests on.

Our first time at the Drake Devonshire did not disappoint! We spent our mini honeymoon in the county and made sure we carved out some time for the highly recommended Drake Devonshire. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by warm, friendly staff, the most romantic atmosphere, and plenty of surprises to make us feel special. The food and wine were absolutely to die for! Highly recommend and we cannot wait to come back!

We were on our way to a wedding and had lunch here. Excellent food and service! The view of the lake for November with waves rolling in was spectacular.
I will return in the summer to try to get a seat in the patio.

Quality food and presentation. Excellent service and professional yet with an absolute attention to every detail with the perfect balance of warmth and niceness...something restaurants either fall on the far end of nice which is phoney or inappropriate to dismissive and inattentive. They hit the mark on attentiveness without being annoying...well trained and standard across staff.
