I love this high end, well stocked and diverse grocery store with a combination of everything from flowers to a bakery and deli area. It's not a large store, but it is worth the visit. Love the gift area on the second floor, too; the...More

I first visited Draeger's due to a coupon for a free quiche (with a $10 purchase). The selection was limited; I ended up with the ham and cheese. Of course, one doesn't limit one's purchases to the subject of a coupon. I also tried the...More

Draeger's is a great store...nice staff, quality products, and an excellent gift shop upstairs. One holiday season I was looking everywhere for what I guess is an old-fashioned type of baking ingredient - candied fruit. My daughter and I wanted to bake some panettone and...More

And then some. All very best quality everything, lavish pastries and full cheese and deli sections. Their wine selections both in depth and quality put most if not almost all wine shops as pretenders. They have multi thousand dollar French and Italian wines behind locked...More

The employees are nice, and have been here forever. Too many of the customers are Nouveau Rude. Shop during the week to avoid as many as you can of them. Roberts of Woodside is simply better, especially if you're buying a pre-prepared holiday meal. While...More

I always stop in here when I'm having a dinner party and need those special ingredients or touches for my table. Their bakery and desserts are always a party-pleaser. The butcher is friendly and open to making recommendations. You can find good pre-made foods too....More

This is the first time I have reviewed a grocery store, but that is because this is really so much more. It is a foodie paradise. They have a terrific bakery, wonderful cheese selections, an outstanding wine selection.....you get the idea. It is a grocery...More

I always enjoy walking around this store. Many interesting foods, great gluten free selection, excellent bakery. Dinning decor items upstairs, & wedding gifts are fabulous. However, I feel that the take-out food is over-rated. It's average instead of great. I do enjoy meeting friends in...More

The service was good, the presentation of the food was good, wine was good. The market price steak was the toughest , not trimmed, lots of grizzle. The sauteed greens were like straw and inedible. Definitely not worth our 200$ dinner for 2
