REVIEWS OF Drake's IN Alabama

Claire J

Listen y’all, their Black Bean burger is wonderful!! Oh my goodness, I love it. The service is helpful and the atmosphere is great.

ehabhajali .

You can never go wrong there. Good variety and delicious food. Prices are very reasonable and food portions are generous

Beth Blake

I really enjoy Drake's! Fun and upbeat atmosphere, good service and great food. If you're not happy, they fix it immediately and do it with a smile. We have never had issues at Drake's and everything comes out HOT! I am a stickler for hot food at restaurants and just don't think it should be difficult to get it out to the customers that way. Will definitely be coming back in the future. One of my favorites in town due to the variety of foods and options they provide.

Cassaundra Moore

LOVE the atmosphere and the wings!

Ben Havlicek

Great service, great prices, great food, great beer selection,. If you are in the Louisville area and are looking for a good place to get some beer, some quality food for reasonable prices in a great atmosphere this is your place.

Great food and drinks and friendly and helpful staff. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a fun atmosphere and good food

Vicki Tingle

I like it but they could lower the volume a bit.

Andy Senters

I love the atmosphere at drakes.

Suranga Hettiarachchi

Typical American style, open late, food is good, service is great.

James Bentley

The fish was amazing! Enough to feed two people! Our server Miranda was attentive and accomodating!

Tony Gore

Nice sports bar. Definitely try the sriracha wings!

Caroline Eastman

Nice casual atmosphere. We love sitting in the open air section, the wait staff is great, the food is good, and beer selection is nice and always changing. My husband loves the wings, pretzels and beer cheese, and the sushi. I like their spicy bean burger and sweet potato fries.

Sunny Dronawat

Great place to meet friends. They do have good sushi

Shawn Vega Velez

I onkt had deer. It wasn't a good or bad visit.

Jennifer Tate

Phenomenal location and fantastic food! Love it!

Savannah Clax

Has great food and a very helpful staff. However, the location I went to only had stool seating and after a hour, it became very uncomfortable. Regardless, the serving size goes well with the prices.

Cosmic FlowArt

Great place for lunch or dinner! Awesome dance floor on weekends after 10pm.

Elise Goldstein

Loved the Skinny Mule and grilled chicken salad! To see more healthy restaurant options, follow me at EatOutNoGuilt on Instagram.

Christi Sorrell

Great food - sushi is amazing here - plenty of menu choices for your friends and family who aren't sushi lovers. Great atmosphere. I come here as often as I am in town!

Michael Lindsay

I went on a rainy day, so I cant speak for the service during their busiest times, but our waitress was attentive and friendly. The menu options were interesting, and being able to order sushi was nice, however the tempura roll we ordered was a bit chewy.

Ej Hunt

Not a fan of room temp sushi but service was good

Patrick Jolley

Excellent food and service, more reasonable than Martinis

ehabhajali

You can never go wrong there. Good variety and delicious food. Prices are very reasonable and food portions are generous

Troy Metzger

The food was delicious, and the service was terrific.

Thomas Darby

Great atmosphere and good service

Yulonda Burris

Great food and great service!!!

Doris Williams

Great Service, atmosphere, drinks and appetizers!

Jeff Scarbrough

Loved it! Our waitress Cherrie was fantastic

M Park

Good place for the game, beers and better quality bar fare. Wouldn't do my Saturday night dinner here, but meeting some friends to watch the game or after work it's just fine. No disappointments

Jim Krawczyk

Service is great. Crab ragoon sushi is best roll I've ever had

Tyke White

Fun atmosphere! Food was great! Out of town guest and we were impressed!

Joy Hitchcock

Great place to meet friends and to eat. Great place to hang out and to watch sports. Love the food!

Tammy Eubank

I rated this a 3 ONLY because it is not the type of place I enjoy going to. That being said, it is a very trendy place with a crowd to match. It is mostly barstools around hi-top tables. While I was there, they had a trivia game going on. It's a great place to get a burger and a drink, but it was too expensive for me. But I know many people will enjoy their atmosphere and the food they offer.. I recall spicy things being a theme..which I don't like. But do not let this low rating stop you from going there. I suggest going at least once for the experience!

DeAnna Myers

Freaking amazeballs! My family and I absolutely love stopping in here.

Jared Ferko

Good quality food and friendly staff. Prices seem a little high for the sushi. For 3 thin slices of salmon sashimi it was $6. That's the same price of a pound of salmon at the grocery store.

Danny McGrath

Good bar food. Lots of TV'S for watching sports. The menu had enough choices for everyone to enjoy.

Joe Brangers

Nice selection of food and drinks to choose from. All meals we have tried have been great. Great appetizers too.

Erin Newsome

Joy was a fantastic server! Food was really good. We had an enjoyable lunch.

Les Butler

Blue cheese burger is the best!

Amanda Ryan

Fantastic food! My kids love DRAKE'S too. I known it sounds crazy, but they're broccoli is amazing as well. Energetic, fun atmosphere, and great service.

PERVEZ RANDELIA

I usually order to go and it is always on time they say it would be ready and always hot. But the most important thing is the order is NEVER messed up!! That’s what everyone expects, and they deliver that! Great job for the guys at The Paddock location.

Josette Lewis

We had a large group and the service was great.

Hunter Hall

Just went for trivia night, but it was fun and the wait staff were friendly enough. I got a few beers and a giant chocolate chip cookie which were all very good. The people eating around me received nice looking plates and returned empty plates so I can only assume their food was satisfactory as well.

Jason Parker

Good food service good just staff doesnt have much personality. All good, different strokes for different folks.

Bob Davidson

Nice place, food is good, a bit on the high side as for cost. Good experience especially if you like to try different craft beer.

David Brummett

Love this place good food good drinks and great atmosphere!

Bonnie Williams

Perfect location! After an afternoon of shopping it's a great place to grab a bite to eat and a cold refreshment! Ice cold beer and above-average bar food. My personal favorite is the boneless buffalo chicken bites

Erick Smith

Great food and service. Service was sort of lacking at first but the restaurant was very busy. Once some of it started clearing out the service improved dramatically. We ordered the Bloody Mary bar, which is an interesting concept. The sushi was better than I expected from an American food restaurant and I would put it on par with authentic sushi bars. Chips and dip (salsa, beans, guacamole) were good. Burgers were delicious, along with the other foods (buffalo chicken and wraps).

Beth Blake

I really enjoy Drake's! Fun and upbeat atmosphere, good service and great food. If you're not happy, they fix it immediately and do it with a smile. We have never had issues at Drake's and everything comes out HOT! I am a stickler for hot food at restaurants and just don't think it should be difficult to get it out to the customers that way.

Jon Korn

Food is great and proceed right,. Seat yourself is good too. Atmosphere,. It's a sports bar, but fun sports bar feel with a nice outdoor area. I haven't tried the sushi and probably never will. I love sushi, but it doesn't belong in a sports bar.

Brian Johnson

OMG I loved this place. The sushi is amazing and beer selection is always amazing.

Abigail Moore-Crawley

I work right across the street from this place and my work friends and I always go here after we get off work (10pm usually) to get dinner. Never once have they said anything about us being under 21. Tonight we go in, our ids are checked at the door (most of us are under 21) and we are told that typically no one under 21 is allowed after 10:30. I explained we were only getting dinner and the security said that would be fine and let us in. We ordered waters and an app while we waiting for our other friends to get off work. An employee comes to the table saying the same policy and I explained the door guy said it was okay if we ate our dinner, he then says that would be fine but we would need to leave by 10:45. We said okay, as it wasn’t even 10 yet we knew we’d be done before then we just wanted to wait until our other friend arrived to order. Again the door man comes to our table and says we have to order or leave and we explained that the other employee said we had until 10:45. Also we hadn’t seen our waitress since our waters were brought out so we weren’t even able to order our entrees if we wanted to. All in all we were annoyed at this point that there was no sign indicating this policy in the first place, we payed for our app and left. We have come here many times after work for dinner and love the food but we will not come back.

Maranda Panda

Best sushi I've ever had! Very fast!

Wael Awad

Casual dining with many options. Sushi is very good. Good variety of drinks and amazing service

Eric Hatter

Nice place to eat. Food was good and plenty of it.

James Bentley

Alex Munits

Good food and atmosphere. sushi could be a step up.

Susan Ninneman

The food was delicious! The tator tots were out of this world

Keith camic

Great fish sandwich!

Jane Juplo

Drake's is one of the great hang-out places I would definitely recommend. I like the interiors, the bars, the tall tables and chairs and they even have tall high chairs for kids if needed. They serve burgers, fillets, sushi and alcoholoc beverages. We ordered teriyaki chicken bowl, Drake's nachos, burgers and fillet with crab rangoon roll. We also tried Drake's beers and the food combo with the beers and wine are awesome! They also have games inside such as Drake's dart, Shuffle Board and Jenga! Such a nice place to eat and spend time with family or friends! They also have a sushi bar!

Chuck Raymond

Great place for food, friends and craft beers.

Frank Black

Samantha Stephenson

Sushi and pub food - always a consistent experience. They have a bloody Mary bar for brunch which was pretty good. Not too many dietary accommodations.

Lady Shaw

Great food. Fun place to go and shake your tail feather.

Jeff Johnson

Excellent! There was good service, great selection of beers and the burger was top notch!

Dawn Page

My husband and I were in the area for the Truck show. We asked for a good place to eat. And we were sent to another place that felt to pricey.. we ended up at DRAKE'S.. wow we never been there before but we sat at the bar. And had an awesome time watching the bartenders they really worked well together.. enjoyed the food.. very delicious burger.it was most wonderful!! Would definitely be going back...

Shari West

Love the food. Sushi and burgers, oh yeah!

Nice Friendly atmosphere and excellent sushi as well as American cuisine

Nick Daniels

Cool spot in good weather

Michael Lines

The food is always amazing. Fish and chicken tacos tonight!

George Estes

Love to go to Drake's. They have a great menu of food, and have a great sushi menu too. The craft beer is excellent. Personally I like the indoors, and it was well air conditioned, but if you like to eat outside, this is the place for you. Service was excellent

Nancy Alvey

I had one of the specials, Chicken Asada tacos. They were good. Not fabulous but good. This Drakes was nice, clean and service very attentive for a group of 6 adults & 2 kids.

Travis Ireland

Nothing special about the place.....over priced for sure.

rkhami68

Great place. Busy and bustling. Lots of great people and good food.

Tom Joule

It gets crowded, but that's what you want in a place like this. The open floorplan makes for great people watching. Hardworking and friendly servers, sound beer and drink selection, and quality reasonably priced traditional bar fare.

LaToya T.

We love this place. Great pub/bar food. The mini fish sandwiches are my fave!

Lisa G

Great food!!! They have so many menu choices. You can get burgers and sushi in the same place and they were both out of this world! And cheap!

Ty Sandman

Tends to be very crowded, but great food for the price.

Sonja Ridge

Tables are all high. This is important if you can't get up on one. Very nice doors that open to the outside. Food was good. Waitresses were nice. This was a first visit. Very busy. Will go back.

Jason Pafundi

A very good and the food is great and the prices are pretty fair for the quality of food

timmyjmichaels@yahoo.com michaels

Iam gonna rate you a 5 because I think overall your palce is trying itst best. To have a "trainer bartender" get a attitude because I would like my liqour drink in a tall pint glass because it is "technically" a water glass seems a bit absurd. JUMPSTART Redirection is in order. MAKE THE GUEST HAPPY WHEN HE IS RESONABLE.

A Taylor McCarty

Family friendly, good food, and beer list.

Chelsea Parrish

They have some amazing chicken strips and their sauces are awesome!

Brittany Skelton

Heather Stacey

Definitely a popular spot. This place was packed but we had a great experience. Service was awesome and food was delicious. The seating around the bar was cut a little odd, but not a big deal really. 10/10 would definitely go back.

Jessica M

The food was excellent!! There are options for any and every body. Our service was great too.

Cristine Belli

Food is great. Too bad you have to stalk guests to get up and leave in order to get a table. Will not go there on a Friday night.

S C

Its a quick lunch spot. Good food, good selection.

Brian Amback

Hanging with my friend John. Had the Big Blue Burger was actually better than i thought it was going to be. Fully dressed with blue cheese dressing and crushed sprinkles on it, with a side of fries.

Karissa Collier

I love this place

RICH ZEISLOFT

Awesome food great beer price for a bucket

Bryan Keating

We’ve been going to Drake’s for years now and have never been disappointed. Great place to have a drink or two and the food is always very good. They also have fantastic sushi! Sriracha Wings are my personal favorite. Restaurant is always clean and service is always friendly. Great to see a local place do it right!

Thaddeus Fine

Good place and lots of fun

Jordan Todd

Great food, sushi or otherwise, and a great selection of booze. All priced right were you expect it.

Rachael Koontz

Drake's is a fun place for drinks and dinner with friends or family. We always have a good time. The food is good and so is the service.

Meagan Higgins

Stopped in for a beer and a sushi roll for a snack while shopping. Service was prompt and helpful. I had the Crab Rangoon roll which was very good. There was triva night going on while I was there, if that's your thing.

Joy

Perfect atmosphere, awesome drinks, great mix of music, just enough dance floor, fast service, and great food! Dont meet me there, beat me there. I'll be back next Friday.

Mike Robinson

Good time!

Gustavo Castillo

If was a lively atmosphere. Was not expecting the music and dance environment. Great food and great drinks. Chicken asada tacos were delicious! Like chicken fajitas but with their own special touch. Cherry on top drink was perfect!

Anstacia Beaumont

Fun laid back environment. Fast efficient service! Enjoy myself every time I go!

Garth Quitliano

Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere. Trevor is a great bartender! The dude never stops! I've been here multiple times and have never once been disappointed. Wish there was a drakes in Michigan!

Shana Cochran

Love their sushi!

Mary Ann Salsman

One of our favorite places!

John Hill

Great food and service. They had all the doors open and the breeze was blowing through. Great atmosphere.

Aaron Gross

Fantastic! Absolutely fantastic! It's a must visit for the food alone but, the atmosphere is just incredibly inviting as well!. Wait staff is second to none AND they have excellent sushi at what is ostensibly a bar! You will not be disappointed.

Zachary Bases

Whomever got this place to have sushi is life saver... It's not bad and whenever we have work gathering there is something I can eat that isn't deep fried 6 times...

gena russell

recomend the bourbon ball fashioned..delicious and you can't beat the huge burgers

Alisha Taylor

Mini sliders are delicious! Waitress was friendly and speedy. The only issue I take is trying to find a table when they are busy. Surely you could seat people and it would still work out ok?

Rich Davidson

One of the few places my wife is always pleased with her food. And yes, I like it too.

Robbie Lambert

Sushi? Check. Burgers? Check. Tater tots? Double check! The food here is excellent, the wait staff is always nice, even in their worst days. One could do way worse. Oh, and their beer selection is pretty killer as well. Enjoy!

Rochelle Glenn

Great food and drinks and great service

Tina Warner

Cool place, food was good, I had the mini Juicy Lucy burgers. Great, but messy of course. Tater tots were yummy. Service was good, not overly friendly but she kept our drinks filled.

Eats Good

We really enjoyed the place. Manager had a very friendly attitude. Burgers were spot on, Cold Smithwicks, Plus the bartender drama was great. Or listening to/ watching the girl lie, step over, make up to be one, I should say. Lol Got to Love the restaurant business. Best part open early New Years Day!!!

John Becker

Good food. Fun environment. Great service.

Lillian Mathews

Shout out to Courtney and Sydney at Drake's at the Paddock Shops. Amazing service even on a busy day. Very attentive and the food come out delicious.

Anstacia Beaumont

Fun laid back environment. Fast efficient service! Enjoy myself every time I go!

Nichole H

Great food, service a little slow.

Kelly Minyard

Went to Drakes in the Paddock last night to watch March Madness and ended up very disappointed. The state of Kentucky had 2 teams playing in the Sweet 16 and guess which team they decided not to televise due to Patrons not being ‘into women’s basketball’ per a Manager. Not into women’s basketball!?!????? I asked the Manager if there was a poll taken at the front door because I must have missed it!!! He stated that most the patrons were in blue and it wasn’t had to judge. I told him I was in blue, with blue hat and I wanted to support women’s basketball; especially since the UL women were ranked #1. The kicker was UK game hadn’t even started. I told the Manager that if they are going to remain a business in Louisville they should have the moral responsibility and passion to play women’s sports side by side with Men’s sports. Especially since we have 2 highly ranked D1 teams. We need to start supporting women’s sports and making business take responsibility in teaching that one gender is not more important than the other. All our Kentucky college athletics need to be supported!!!

Eric Roby

Good food and great atmosphere.

Whitney Kline

Drake's has modern faire food and sushi. The sushi is actually quite good. The service is not bad but not great. Their fried pickles are delightful with a wonderful house made ranch.

Byron Williams

Food and atmosphere is amazing!!

Little Liv TV

Great food and a fun atmosphere! Server was very attentive to our needs. Great happy hour and food specials.

Kristie Tsuchiyama

The staff are very polite and the food is great!

Jesse Roberson

Usually love this place. Normally a great atmosphere and a great selection of beer. Today, on St. Patty’s day we went in for some green beer and to watch some Michigan State basketball. After ordering we were told they didn’t have any green beer left at 3:24 in the afternoon. Pretty sure they opened at 11:00, and they had an advertisement to come in for $3.00 Green beers. On top of that, after 15 min they couldn’t get the MSU game on any tv near us. When your a sports bar advertising St. Patrick’s day, this is pretty poor. I’ll go to “The Corner” every time from now on.

Carolyn Jeanne Anderson-Ballard

Great sushi rolls and service

Pamela Spangler

Sat at the bar, burgers and beers were good but had to keep brushing the flies away which I don't mind if I'm camping!

Jerry Giacinto

Can't go wrong

Amy Adams

Fun place. Trendy crowd. Great bar food. Super service. Great selection of beers on tap and fun events plus great specials every day. Will definitely visit again soon.

Kimberly Klemens

Even though Drake's has a lot of burgers on their menu I had the Cobb Chicken salad and it was delicious.

Jeff Slyn

$5 for 3 friend fish sliders was a fabulous special tonight. I added broccoli as my side and it was very filling. Terrific waitress handled the 15 of us efficiently.

Michael Williams

Great sushi and cocktails staff was friendly and fast!

Ty Raver

Consistent...Which is good. My preferred "production" bar food go-to. Beer list often has a few decent crafts. Sushi option is a nice alternative. Can be loud, though.

Tariq Ismail

Always a great spot. Trivia nights are especially great.

Carol Brimmer

Shared the Quesadilla with someone and still hand leftovers to take home. They were great!

Jesslyn Smith

Fun atmosphere, great food, polite and prompt service. Great place to unwind.

Chase Owens-Scott

Really good food if you go you should get the mini juicy Lucy's they are phenomenal

Steven Groves

food was amazing, atmosphere was great. definitely going back

Dylan Tillotson

Great food and service! I haven't had much on their menu, but the burgers and sushi are phenomenal. Definitely recomend Drake's.

Yodit Dori

Good place to hang out to watch sports and play trivia. You can also enjoy some music and dancing on the weekends

Vincent La Russa

Amazing place to take friends and family. Quality scene for sports and beer, and night life events being held often. Great local place for atmosphere, food, and staff!

Garth Quitliano

Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere. Trevor is a great bartender! The dude never stops! I've been here multiple times and have never once been disappointed. Wish there was a drakes in Michigan!

Chris Brumley

Fast, friendly service. Buffalo Chicken wrap was tasty and coleslaw was very fresh. Will go back :)

Mont M

Popular bar in summit. They have an outside and an inside bar. I went for couple of drinks. Apart from traditional bar food they also offer sushi which is made when ordered. I personally am not comfortable ordering sushi at a bar. I have Louisville gets fresh seafood daily but that does not mean this place does. They have trivia night on Sunday. There were 2 bartenders, one of them saw me and walked away instead of taking my order so I had to wait for the bartender whose side I was sitting on. Go customer service.

Tina Martin

Uncomfortable seating music to loud food not so good for the price service inadequate
