We had a delightful dinner in the outside patio. Service was attentive, food was good and ample. My wife had the steak and it was juicy and perfectly done. I had the soup which was exceptionally flavorful and Potato Skins.

The Trading Post used to be THE place to go for a nice meal in Shaver Lake but our experience for my birthday in June 2015 was disappointing. They weren't busy - one other table with customers - but it took a good 10 minutes for the waitress to realize that we did not have menus, drinks (even though we... More

Food was good, unfortunately large party was seated very close to my booth, and one large biker took his jacket off over my plate, basically touching my food with HIS rudeness. Not the restaurants fault
