“Excellent food with superb service”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Last night my Wife and I had a Fantastic meal at Traders. It has consistently maintained its standard of excellence throughout the years. They continue to offer an array of distinctively unique menu items that make it difficult at best to select just one dinner to enjoy. Last night was no exception. My Wife wanted the chicken with a different sauce and potatoes au gratin instead of angel hair, while I chose to combine two of the nights specials into one. Leslie our server was extremely accommodating and provided us with all the selections that we had requested. She was very knowledgable of the menu items and what the kitchen was capable of doing. Leslie was extremely professional yet very friendly. We look forward to our next visit to Traders.

Loved the roasted garlic and goat cheese app. The quiche of the day was good. Server was attentive and atmosphere was nice.

“Great food, bit pricey”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We loved Traders last year, and made sure it was on our list again.
The food is excellent and creative. The prices on the menu are average dinner prices, $20-$30, however the specials tend to be on the higher and >$30.
Good wine list as well.

“Absolutely the BEST!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This was probably one of the best meals we have ever had in a restaurant. Fantastic selections on the menu and fresh seafood. We started with mussels and they were great. I had the special which was a pasta dish loaded with crab, lobster, and shrimp. I have never had so much fish in a pasta dish before. And the sauce was incredible. My husband had the chicken breast and he loved it. The servings are huge. Very beautiful setting also.

“A must try”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in around "Happy hour" and omg did ever leave HAPPY! Started with a bowl of gumbo and it was stocked with fish, rice, a touch of green onion. It was delicious! The HH menu was perfect for our appetite. The chicken quesadilla, the ribs, the tuna, and the lamb shank were each worthy of five stars. And it was a melee to finish off the chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream. The staff were just as wonderful as the food. A must try without a hesitation.
