      You will not be disappointed. The Drake's menu from top to bottom is rock solid. IMO they have some of the best burgers in the area (their Captain Morgan burger is phenomenal). I'd also highly recommend the crab cake salad as well.

      BTW, it's not Drake's Tavern, it's the Drake Tavern.

        Can't agree more! The Guinness burger is one of my favorites as well. The tuna app is great as well as the Shepherd's Pie. The Sunday Brunch is a nice change of pace too. What a great day to head over- I hope you got a table outside.

      I will also be looking for your impressions. We live right around the corner and used to go there frequently (kids eat free on Mondays!), but the last two times the food was so salty we couldn't stand it so we haven't been back in a few months. The redo definitely looks gorgeous, though - hope you enjoy it!

        Ok I went for a late lunch. And the burger was great. Everyone enjoyed what the ordered. It looks like it can get pretty crowed at night. Place was clean from what I could see. I would go back
