Good food with a home cooked feel. Breakfast is the best. They usually have a home cooked special for supper every night.

By far one of the nicest dining experiences. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs as diners. The food was superb and was obviously homemade. Our food choices ranged from spaghetti to steaks and all were great. I would highly recommend this culinary experience.

Walking distance from 7th lake. Drakes has been a family breakfast tradition for over 50 years for us. Friendly staff and owners. Good home cookin breakfast. They handled a big family very well with exellent service. My kinda casual morning mountain atmosphere.
