We came with friends and had pretty good food, we have past this place for a few years, We decided to give it a try, since still standing for quite a while. We were not disappointed, food was good and service was also good. Don't expect a 5 star steak but you can try the shrimp and grits and you... More

Love sitting out under the trees eating excellent food, sipping perfectly made drinks is always a treat here. Scallops are great and since a lot of the dishes have green pepper which I am a allergic too I stick with the short ribs which are so good and tender.

My husband and I stopped here for a drink during their happy hour and were not disappointed. We had a good drink and we had a $5.00 mussel appetizer which was very good. The downside to inside was I found it kind of dark but they do have an outside dining area in the back which would be perfect for... More

What a nice evening! Cathy, the bar manager, was attentive to every need. Drinks were perfect, Ahi tuna, mussels, pork pate, and shrimp cocktail were perfect appetizers for our party of 4. Cathy steered us in the right direction with recommending the bison meatloaf and the ribs. Delicious dinners and wonderful service.

We always enjoy our dinners at Trabue. The mussels and sliders were wonderful and the grilled octopus was amazing. Our friend had the grouper dinner and was beyond impressed with his dinner. Cathy, Tiffany and the gang are great and Chief Keith knocks it out of the park every time! Kudos to TRABUE!

60 of our closest family, friends, and co-workers joined us at Trabue for my husband's retirement party. This was the easiest event I've ever thrown! They allowed us to have the party inside the restaurant (versus outside on the patio as there was inclement weather in the forecast) and the festivities were 2 hours before their opening time. They provided... More
