The food is great. The chef always comes out to say hi, sometimes even delivers the food. The menu is small and changes daily. The Scallops over corn is killer. Try the escargot. I had forgotten how good escargot were. It's an easy place to miss. Look for it next to the Ice cream store. Once we found it, it... More

This was our first visit to Trabue and delightfully this was one of the best restaurant meals we've ever enjoyed. Chef Keith Meyer is a master in the kitchen. The octopus and escargot appetizers were both outstanding as were the shrimp and scallop dinners. The creme brulee was the perfect ending to a superb dining experience. The service was outstanding...

Too salty but everything else was outstanding. Great selection and atmosphere. Good food too. It was the best part of an otherwise crappie date :)

We sat in the garden, and it was lovely. We arrived in time for happy hour prices on wine (which we didn't expect) and were still there when it got dark and the garden was lighted. My only suggestion for the garden would be large potted plants or trees to better separate it from busy US41. We had an excellent... More

We wanted to thank friends for helping us out and since none of us had been to Trabue we wanted to try it. Filet was terrific, scallops and shrimp and beef roast fantastic. We arrived for happy hour wine prices...Great value. Plus chef stopped by to make sure all was well which is always a nice touch.. Not inexpensive but... More

A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. The food is great and the menu changes daily. During the winter (or snowbird) season, the outdoor seating is open for meals and/or drinks. Michael Hirst has been performing there on Friday nights - if you haven't listened to him perform, you definitely need to get yourself over there!

Quite the martini, mixed drink or wine you receive for a great price between 5 and 7 p.m. We also had the mussels and the shrimp and grits appetizers, which were fantastic. The bar tender was very friendly and efficient. We have never eaten there for dinner but I have heard from other people it's a little pricey but excellent... More

First time we have been there. Had heard good things and it seems they are true. The food was excellent, but I thought the service was a little inattentive. I ordered a second cocktail during the appetizer and didn't get it until half way through the main course. That was my only complaint, but at $4.50 for a cocktail, and... More

The escargot was delightful. The steaks were delicious. Service was impeccable. Beautiful place. Just a tad on the noisy side, but that's being nit picky.
