Ate meals at this restaurant twice during my stay at Double Tree for a week. Great food but the service was slow since the place was empty on both days. I asked for the refill and the server forgot, I nicely reminded him. The place was nice and I enjoyed my dinner.

Thank you for dining (twice) in Trader Dukes during your stay. I appreciate the feedback on the service when it was slow - that's frustrating for sure. I can assure you that will be something that is stressed in the future - thanks for bringing it to our attention! More

This restaurant was attached to our hotel, Doubletree. We went to the Sunday brunch buffet and it was wonderful! We also had french toast and skillet oatmeal in our room one day. Their food is great. I especially liked the french toast with blueberries and maple syrup. We were trying to eat things native to that part of the country... More

Had a good meal the chicken caprese sandwich which was really good. Also the hostess was very nice and accommodating. However the restaurant was a little dingy and our waitress was very slow and we were one of maybe three parties that were in there.

We had breakfast here during our stay at the Double Tree Hotel- attached to hotel. They have a nice menu- eggs, pancakes, French toast, sides, juice, coffee, fresh fruit. They also have a kids menu. The wait staff was friendly and very attentive. The food was fresh and tasty.

Trader Duke's is connected to the Doubletree Inn and is a cut above the typical hotel restaurant. My waitress told me that the pancakes wonderful, but I instead ordered Eggs Benedict. I was glad I did! Two crispy English muffins had perfectly poached eggs sitting atop lean slices of Canadian bacon and then had Hollandaise sauce ladled over both eggs.... More

Ok. So I had just finished a night shift. Drove 3 hours to catch a flight and had some time to eat before getting on the plane. Stopped here and was so glad I did. Homey. Friendly accommodating staff. The cook was flexible ( I think he felt sorry about my dead sleepless face ) my server Alissa was great.... More

Trader Dukes is part of the Double Tree by Hilton. The food is excellent, great breakfast and the hotel room service comes from Trader Dukes. Ate here several times and never had a bad meal. Check it out!

Went for Sunday brunch. Everything on the buffet was cold. service was non-existent. Our bill (3 brunch buffets, two water glass-sized screwdrivers, $65) will not go back. The hotel might be nice but the restaurant needs to train their wait-staff to actually serve their customers. & close the stupid chafing dishes to keep food warm! By the way, bartender didn't...
