Drake Tavern is our go-to place for watching Eagles games as a family since moving into the neighborhood. The beer list is always good, the staff is wonderful with children, and the atmosphere is lively and energetic football fun, while still being family friendly.

We met a friend for dinner. We did a lot of talking and weren’t focused on ordering but our waitress was beyond patient with us! She gave us time and came back suggested we order our drinks and just generally was very nice. Food was exactly as described in the menu- no surprises and came out plenty hot and perfectly cooked. We never felt rushed and enjoyed a lovely evening with our friend. We’ll be back!

The food was delicious and it was a perfect place to bring children. I am disappointed that I didn’t realize until after I left that I was charged $3 for my son’s drink when it was supposed to come free with his kid’s meal.

WE ordered onion rings which were good, turkey sand. and they were good and ahi tuna salad which was very good. Cheesecake for dessert also delicious. The only thing we didn't like was that it was very dark....other than that...it was a very nice evening.

I had the salad with grilled salmon and raspberry vinaigrette. It was absolutely delicious! The salad with shrimp and mango dressing is equally good! The value is great. If you’re in the mood for a casual neighborhood bar/ restaurant, I highly recommend it. PS.... Brownie sundae is fabulous!

The Wednesday lobster special was so delicious. 2lbs of fresh lobster for $25 w 2 sides where could you get this deal! Perfectly cooked not salty, tail split so it could be easily removed and both claws with small cut to get all the tender meat out. Hope they keep this special going as long as they can get a fresh catch. Service was excellent she patiently checked on us while we waited for the last member of our party to show up, got our drink order right away and food came promptly. Definitely a keeper!

Really good place for a burger and beer. Menu was more extensive than I was led to believe from other reviews. Nice selection of beers. Burger was cooked right. Ambiance is just OK and parking can be a little confusing but overall a good experience.

We had a reservation. It was Mother's Day. But still, one should not expect to be told upon arrival that there were be a 20 minute wait because they were running behind. The hostess station, table preparation seemed very uninterested and disorganized. Our table was open for 15 minutes before we were seated. After seating, the service was fine and the food was good.

Prices are up and some quality eroded-. As an example, no longer the crisp potato sticks on the Captain Morgan but ordinary chips which get soggy. Still tasty but not excellent as it was!

We ate outside, but noise was pretty good despite our table being close to route 611. Food choices were varied and delicious. You can have a full dinner, or enjoy lighter fare like salads or burgers or sandwiches. $2.50 draft beer on Wed. Night was a nice feature also.

The one thing I was looking forward to where their cheese fries and apparently they now use cheese whiz and not white American.

Their burgers are fantastic and the have a vey good selection of beers. However, that’s it. They have some additional menu items and appetizers and cheesecake for dessert but it is truly a burger and brew joint. They do what they do well but if you are looking for an extensive menu that is more restaurant than tavern, you should look elsewhere. If a burger and a brew is what you’re looking for, this is the place.

I enjoyed my time at Drakes m. Looking forward to going again. Everything was delicious. The appetizers could have been slightly more in quantity or sliced to bite sized. But they where very tasteful.

The Drake has been known for the burgers, unfortunately that has gone down. Previously the burgers had a wonderful charbroiled taste that emphasized the different varieties of burgers but now that flavor is gone. Basically the flavor is masked with a lot of sauce and the buns are just plain rolls from a bag even the Drake stamp is pale on the roll the same as the food now. While it wasn’t bad it was flavorless. Unfortunate because we really liked the Drake previously, it was one of the few places close to NE Philadelphia that we could always count on. Also the homemade dirty chips are no longer on the menu as well as the tuna. We won’t be coming back this was our second try to see if it was just an off night but it wasn’t.

I had reservations and didn’t get to sit where I wanted because the greeter assumed I didn’t want to hear the band. Also, there were no seats in my preferred area. I though having reservations would award me that 🤷🏾‍♀️other than that, the waitress was nice and the food was good.
