Drake's Fireside Lounge is the more casual dining choice at the Bodega Bay Lodge. It features the same menu at the Duck Club, but the setting is more laid back, and reservations aren't necessary. We had dinner at Drake's on 2 nights and the service on both occassions was excellent. The cheese plates are definietly the way to begin the meal. There are many options on how you can put this plate together and the accoutrements are excellent. The gnocchi, duck, steak are all very well prepared. Save room for the chocolate cake. It is light and the frosting is not the heavy cloying masses so often found on restaurant dessert cakes. This cake is like a good homemade cake. There also is an ample wine list and it is possible to find a good bottle without breaking the bank. The lounge is comfortably decorated. There's a large fireplace and a bank of windows that look out toward the ocean.
