We always get the calamari. You can't beat it. Soup, salad and bread with your meal. Nice wine selection. Wait staff is extremely attentive and friendly.

Stop in for a great ice cream, or a hot prepped sandwich, or buy something special from the deli ready to go. Either way, the food is good, the service is adequate, and the place is always busy whenever we stop in. This place always busy says it all! :)!

For this "rustic" facility, the menu choices and in particular prices, implied something more than it is. Witnessing the steaks and potato servings and you are are a 'meat and potatoes' diner it is perhaps your kind of place, just not ours.

Want some good food and a cozy fire? This is the place! This restaurant / bar has roots deep in the history of the area. Fun place to gather with your friends.

We had a delightful dinner in the outside patio. Service was attentive, food was good and ample. My wife had the steak and it was juicy and perfectly done. I had the soup which was exceptionally flavorful and Potato Skins.

The Trading Post used to be THE place to go for a nice meal in Shaver Lake but our experience for my birthday in June 2015 was disappointing. They weren't busy - one other table with customers - but it took a good 10 minutes for the waitress to realize that we did not have menus, drinks (even though we... More

Food was good, unfortunately large party was seated very close to my booth, and one large biker took his jacket off over my plate, basically touching my food with HIS rudeness. Not the restaurants fault
