Appetizers arrived at the same time as the main course. Ruins the whole point of an appetizer. Felt like we were being rushed to finish and get out.
We had a great table outside. The wait staff was attentive and chatty. It was a nice evening.
By far worst server we have ever experienced. Had to end up asking a different server to help us get out First drinks (finally got there after our appetizer arrived) and had to chase another different server down for a 2nd drink. Nice place and great atmosphere but brutal server experience
Server didn’t seem too happy to be there.
The service was outstanding. However, the food was dried out (particularly the ribs). It was a rather disappointing and over priced.
We love the Drake! We made a reservation to be sure we would get a table. When we got there they sat us at the worst table right by the outdoor speakers while people with no reservations were getting really good tables. Food was amazing and the views incredible. Just look after those who take the tine to book.
The Drake was closed down due to a COVID-19 outbreak but OpenTable failed to notify us. Good thing earlier in the day, we walked by and noticed that everything was closed.
Great place to take the family it was not quiet so perfect for kids. Food was good for kids as well. Value for food is good. Their special was “smoked ribs” but they were definitely not smoked and were not fresh. If you got a table by the window the view is nice and in the summer it’d be great on the patio. Not somewhere I would return to eat but maybe a drink or appy!
SMOKEHOUSE!! Need I say more. Ribs and Brisket were tender and delicious! Servers were attentive and pleasant. 10% off food order if you present your hotel key. Family of 3 ate and bill was less than $70.00 including drinks. Would definitely go again.
The food was absolutely terrible. Completely inedible.
Great atmosphere. We had the lemon pepper wings. The wings were huge and hot and perfectly seasoned! Way beyond impressed!!
Beef brisket was dry and lacked flavour. Not moist and tender at all. My partners pulled pork was alright as well, it lacked flavour besides being drowned in BBQ sauce and it could have been more moist. Overall an alright experience, was hoping for better.
Excellent customer service and adherence to Covid-19 safety protocols. I would recommend this venue.
Steak night. Food was delicious. Service was great.
It was very busy and not enough staff. The waitress was trying to keep up but having difficulty. Gravy missing from the order but charged for. Second beer didn't end up coming until too late. Food tasted good though. Saturday evening so understandable, likely just need more staffing.
We were a little stuck as it was Valentine's Day and we decided to extend our stay another night. They did not have any draft available to start with, but the guys made other choices. Then after we ordered they told us only one of the two that ordered ribs could have them. Then they came back again and said the second person would need to order something else as they were sold out. That was a bit of a let down especially to find out after it had already been ordered.
Service was terrible and the restaurant was not busy. Food was over cooked and over priced.
Very covid friendly! Amazing service. Delicious food and drink options.
Waitress was somewhat annoyed and rude, food was underwhelming.
Great place for a bbq and drinks.
Standard pub grub
Nothing fancy but food was good staff were friendly
I would recommend a visit
Great views on the patio and delicious BBQ! Great spot in Canmore to visit.
best restaurant ever, drove home and then realized we wanted to go back again and made the drive back up. will be back again. the servers are awesome and the drinks are so cool. loved it
The portions were small and the waitress was not friendly or helpful. We were a bit dissatisfied. The quality of food was mediocre.
Patio is nice
Drake pub was super accommodating, they have a fabulous happy hour drink special and a great patio. Our server was super friendly and gave good service. She was from Quebec and super kind (sorry forgot her name). Thank you!
