“Trader Dick's: Far from the Madding Crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

My wife and I went to the Sparks Rib Cook-off on Sat., Sept. 1 and sampled three of the cookers, none of whom won a prize, but their ribs and sauces were delicious. To rest our weary legs and to get out of the hot sun, we went into John Ascauga's Nugget to visit Trader Dick's and its famous and huge fish tank. We wrapped ourselves around a Mai Tai each and watched those lovely fish for, oh, 3/4's of an hour. At one point, we turned to watch the streams of refugees from the crowds at the Rib Cook-off coming in and then we turned back to the quiet sipping of the rum and the peaceful viewing of the colorful tropical fish.

“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Fast prompt experienced service. Wife had New York strip which they prepared perfectly. I had Prime Rib medium, was more medium well and not as tender but flavor was great.

The Trader Dick's sampler for two appetizer is great. The coconut shrimp and thai eggrolls are very delicious.

“Went back to Trader's Dicks Again!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

We have eaten in Trader Dicks for years As long as it has existed Few people know it was once in a building across the street from the Nugget. I was very pleased to see it hasn't chagned. Same decor Our server said it was her first night and she did a great job Two in our party had the special dinner and that comes with a baked alaska dessert! I had prime rib and first bite remembered John raises his own beef and it has a high quality taste Can't miss with this place.
