Very unique sauce for steak...thourghouly enjoyed it. Service was slow however.

We ate here upon the recommendation of friends in Bowling Green. It was a Thursday evening but the annual bike tour was in town, so it got busy as the evening progressed. There were not very many people in there when we arrived. We were seated immediately and our drinks were brought to... read more

I grew up in Bowling Green but had never been to or heard of Trotters. After hearing that they have the best steaks from multiple people my fiancé and I decided to check it out. Once I saw their sign I at least recognized the place. There steaks are good, but they are unlike other steaks I've had. They serve... More

Trotters is known for their Brown Jug Steak dinner so we ordered three. While Trotters was not busy for a Tuesday it took well over one hour for our meals to arrive. The meat was tough and served on a bed of a brown gravy type sauce with an overwhelming onion base to it. On a scale of 1 to... More

Great food Gotta try the wings with big daddy's pepper sauce. Also the turkey trot sandwich and the hot brown were amazing. Kaylee was very friendly. Will definitely come back to try more of the menu.

My boyfriend and I split the brownjug steak. It was cooked perfectly and was just the right amount for us to share along with mashed potatoes for each of us. I started off with a Greek salad which the dressing was AWESOME! Service was spot on and we really liked the laid back/tavern type atmosphere. Worth every penny.

Went in for a nice steak and beer the night before graduation. Trotters did not disappoint. Some had steak and some had burgers. Both were excellent. Place was busy for Friday before Aug Graduation but service still very good. Steaks were cooked perfectly and came out on nice got platter. Burgers were great too. Can't wait to go again on... More

If your looking for a high quality cut of steak that is cooked perfectly, this is the place. The special sauce may be an acquired taste, but altogether the food was fresh and tasty.

Big, juicy, and marinating in some kind of an au jus. Enjoyed very much. Caprese salad good side choice. Mashed potatoes average. Finished with deep fries cheesecake for dessert. Very good service and cozy atmosphere.
