Best steak I've ever eaten!

I ate in this restaurant about 15 years ago whilst working in the states, the Brown jug fillet steak is to die for!! Wish it were closer.

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.

A bit expensive but it was so delicious that it made it worth it. The brown jug was absolutely amazing. Our waitress was fun and friendly. Wish there was a place like this near me.

Very cozy & great service! Steak was overcooked slightly (but large & excellent flavor) - baked potato was very small, salad was excellent...so for $23 its priced accordingly but certainly not cheap. Dinner for 2 adults & 2 kids (off kids menu) ran $100 (no wine/cocktails - few beers.) Overall I would recommend if looking for nice dinner out as... More

Their Brown Jug Steak is insanely flavorful - and their overall menu prices are extremely reasonable - it's a winner!
