Lite Fare is served from 11 am to closing. A Fine Dining menu begins at five o’clock with one of the most impressive dinner menus in the area.

Drummer’s attractive and welcoming atmosphere exudes warmth and hospitality. Beautiful jewel hues fuse with the warm glow of the open fireplace. Crystal chandeliers, delicate lace and beautiful fabrics at the windows add elegance to the historic setting.

An enclosed porch makes you a participant in the sidewalk activity of passers-by as you view Berlin’s Historic District of boutique shops, art galleries, and historic buildings. In season, a screened-in porch is the favorite venue at Drummer’s Café. Everyone vies for a table on the porch communing with nature, flowering plants, fresh air and visitors enjoying a day in the Village of Berlin.

The Drummer’s Café Bar is always filled with luncheon and dinner guests, hotel guests and music lovers who come to experience the ambiance of a welcoming atmosphere as well as an occasional evening’s live entertainment which takes place during and after dinner. Fine wines by the glass or bottle, a variety of domestic, imported, selection of craft beers, and top shelf mixed drinks and coffees are always available from opening to closing.
