We enjoyed our lunch here and found the wide variety of items made it hard to choose. We had a Pretzel and Cheese sandwich, Crispy fish tacos,chicken fingers, Griddle Quesa and the delicious Sweet potatoes fries. We shared these and really loved them.

I'm always a little hesitant when burgers and sushi are on the same menu, however Drakes didn't disappoint. I dined with a small group of coworkers and there was something for everyone. The drink list was extensive with a large microbrew list. I had a...More

Had a great dinner at Drake's - sat near the bar - the place was lively, full of people. The food was very good, we had a fun time hanging out, people watching and enjoying the atmosphere.

I work very close to Drake's and was out with co-workers. We had excellent service & the beer selection was pretty good. The appetizers were pretty good, but my burger was very salty. It was the only complaint I had, as the rest of my...More

If you are going to Drakes for anything other than drinks with friends or co-workers, it may not be worth it. The food is decent, but the service has been lacking the past several times we have been. So much so, I am not sure...More

Hi. I'm so sorry to hear about the bad service you've been having with our Drake's lately. I hope to get the opportunity to have a manager reach out to you. Would you be so kind as to send a private message with your name...More

First time to Drakes, won't be the last. Great atmosphere, good menu, interior very well designed and unique. Had the sriracha wings and the buffalo quesadilla, both very good, especially the wings. Service was excellent. Nice to visit a place in northern Kentucky that doesn't...More

I ordered the Buffalo chicken sliders. They were very good but a regular sandwich would have been better. Servers are very friendly. I'll be back in Florence next week and will definitely visit Drakes again.

Been there a few times - they food has always been good, but the seats are either backless stools or benches with wood seats and wood backs - neither is conducive to spending time catching up with friends. Good for a quick bite, but not...More

We sat at the bar and received fantastic service from Chelsea. The place was pretty packed due to NCAA games but Chelsea certainly handled the crowd well. We had a nice flight of beers before deciding which one to order. There is a huge variety...More

Good food and a surprising variety for a bar. High top tables are comfortable. Great for after a long day at the office.

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!
