My wife and I recently stopped at Drakes Inn for breakfast during the Memorial Day weekend. It's a quaint little place, very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfasts we ordered were delicious but the service was very slow with only a few other couples there...More

Have eaten here many times and the food is always good. But... I like these people, so I hate to 'but' ... but this place is slow service, every time. Go when you plan to have a slow pace, or don't care about the wait...More

This is the best place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't come here in a hurry. Relax. That's why you are on vacation.

Food was okay (n terrible, not great) and the prices were okay. But service was insanely slow. There were an adequate number of wait staff for the number of patrons so I assume the hold up had to be in the kitchen. Took me 30...More

We have gone to Drakes for many years since my wife's family has owned property in Inlet since the 1950's. The property was sold several years ago and we have made trips to Inlet every few years since then. Went there for lunch the first...More

we were very disappointed with Drakes- we had not been there in years- and we had very bad service, and the food took forever. I ordered a "super salad" - and was told it had to be made special by the chef- so I was...More
