My husband enjoyed his all time best chili here! I liked it too, but I'm not such a fan of chili anyway. it had chunks of beef, not ground beef, and it had a little kick, but not overly spicy. Very flavorful. They could improve the dish by serving with corn bread instead of the little oyster crackers, but the... More

We ate breakfast almost daily at Trader Duke's from Oct. 2nd - Oct. 8th, 2015. The service was excellent. The staff is attentive to the customer's needs. We were especially impressed by Jonathan who served us on our first day. The grilled oatmeal he suggested was superb and we ordered it everyday since then. We tried the different types of... More

Dined at Trader Duke's while staying in a near by hotel. The service was top class. I ordered a starter and a main course which were excellent. The bar staff could not be faulted. Was able to enjoy watching the football while eating my meal which was a plus. Would recommend this restaurant.

Although priced moderately high for the area, the food and atmosphere were worth it. Homey casual decor with a large central fireplace. Welcoming! The Eggs Benedict was very good with the whites perfectly cooked. The Hollandaise Sauce was excellent. The Waffle was light and airy and served with real maple syrup. The Keurig Green Mountain coffee was bold but not... More
