It was OK

Great location but had not been here in 20 years and it looked exactly the same. Not sure if that is good or bad?? Food was good, not great.

Went out for dinner on vacation. Had no intention of spending hours at dinner. Slowest service in a practically empty restaurant with four servers on. Waited forty minutes to be told "we're out of spinach dip". Food was good but certainly not worth the ridiculously long wait.

Good hash browns, omelettes made to order, tasty juice and enjoyed the maple sausage. Fruit plate was fine for winter selection, coffee ok too. Service was excellent, with our waitress coming back to refill juice and take our plates when done, quick response to request for ketchup, and generally pleasant atmosphere. The breakfast filled us up nicely and worked out... More

We went to Trader Dukes for their Sunday breakfast buffet. They served made to order omelets and eggs that were well made with a nice array of choices. The buffet had eggs benedict, waffles with strawberries, whipped cream and syrup available, as well as bacon, sausage, potatoes, and fresh cut melon. It was a nice spread that met our needs... More

We stopped for breakfast and were disappointed. The food was mediocre & very highly priced at $32 for 2 people. The service was adequate but nothing memorable. The atmosphere with a fire place however, was special. We do not plan to return & would not recommend this as a restaurant. There are many others in the area who serve far... More

Get the meatloaf if you can't figure out what you want. Pair it up with one of the beers on tap. The bartender was extremely fast in serving up your drink and getting our food order in. The place gets packed the closer it get to 7pm. I recommend you get there early unless you like the crowds.

Had breakfast here with friends on New Years Day. Sort of a jumble with the buffet laid out all along the front wall of the entry so that everyone who enters passes within two feet of the home fries, etc. The large dining room is comfortable and surrounds a double opening fireplace. The decor is homey and warm. We tried... More

There was a time where I would be sure to head there for dinner; the fish n chips were fresh (and beer battered), the sirloin tips were amazing, and the sandwiches were very good. But, apparently, all good things come to an end. My last two meals there were average at best, and unfortunately, it will drop as the list... More

Our first stop when arriving in Burlington is Trader Duke's for mid-day lunch. Can't beat the service, the food, the price. My husband always orders the meatloaf and I the vegie burger. We are two happy campers.
