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!

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
