Great Place!

The food is great. The waitresses are friendly & professional. Have been there for breakfast. Love their coffee. We have also been there for lunch & dinner. We enjoyed the shrimp & everything we have had there is good! Like the atmosphere.

The food here has been consistently good with decent price value. The concern has been the inconsistent quality of hostess/waitress. It’s a bit of a gamble if it will be a good night or bad night. I have gone in their where the waitress is more concerned about talking to her friend then her customers. After a couple of experience... More

As soon as we were seated our young and outgoing waitress didn't wait for my boyfriend and went over the specials with just me, but she was probably pretty busy with her other tables with larger parties of 4-8 people. When we had trouble deciding between the Maryland crab soup versus their award-winning cream of crab soup she offered us... More

Went for breakfast, which is usually good, if greasy. A server came to take our drink orders but we said we brought our own Starbucks. She said, "I can't let you have that here. It's a health issue." Incredulous, I said, "Who's health?" She said, "The restaurant's." I don't know who she thought was going to drink my coffee. I... More

Traders is hopping at breakfast. The French toast is moist on the inside and crispy on the outside; the buttermilk pancakes are large--a serving of 3 pancakes could serve two people! The service was inattentive, but, hey, it's breakfast on the western shore of the Chesapeake: chill! It has a good, well-earned reputation for breakfast. Try it.

Food is consistently good. Wait staff are always friendly, but service is sometimes a bit off, Little things like having to ask a second time for your drink or forgetting to bring you your salad before your entree, nothing that keeps us from going back. They have a decent kids' menu. Its great for our extended family, because we have... More

My husband and I went for dinner on a Wednesday night. The beer on tap was a great selection and a great price. The appetizers were large portions and we enjoyed the loaded cheese fries. The garden side salad had more than the basics, and I enjoyed my turkey Ruben. My husband, however, was extremely disappointed with his fried chicken.... More

There goal seem to be hurry up. Before my wife and I could wipe our mouths the plate were wisked away. This happen with every entree. Upon completion of our meal, the check was presented without inquiring if wanted dessert. Would not return.

We enjoyed ourselves as we ate in their out door seating but were not too impressed with the seafood. It's was good but not great like many of the other reviews. I tried the fried seafood platter, which by the way is a while lot of food, and it was pretty average. I expected better seafood since this is the... More
