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!

It's been months since I've been to Trotters because I moved out of town. But I crave their Brown Jug. Always cooked just right, with sauteed onions, a roll to dip up juices, and I always get FF. My one disappointment is they changed with Peanutty Refries. Yep, refried beans with peanut butter. Yummy! They used to serve it in... More

Trotters' never fails to satisfy my appetite for a delicious Brown Jug, always cooked to perfection. The service and atmosphere are always great. Best place in BG, hands down.

You will not find a steak like this. I have eaten at many steak restaurants but this is by far the best. Locally owned, incredible marinate for the steaks.

We went to Trotters one night because we had some gift certificates. The place was empty, dirty, and the servers stood in a corner talking and were very inattentive. We ordered some appetizers and a sandwich. The food was disgusting- we didn't even finish it. The fries tasted like grease, and everything else was lame. The thing that really got... More

Small, unassuming restaurant. They have a wide menu but the sirloin is their specialty. Has a good, well deserved reputation. Friendly staff and a good wine selection.

Good steak, unusal dishes, cold beer. Slow service and can get crowded.

Best steak in Bowling Green. Great marinade. Sometimes the quality of the meat is uneven--other times it is superb. I wish they would get it right every time. The wait staff is outstanding. The bartenders are great. Great night out in BG.
