Went here for lunch and cold beer after walking the Chesapeake Railway Trail on a recent Friday. The dining room section that was open (there are 2 indoor dining rooms) was packed so we opted to sit in the bar rather than wait for a table. Slot machines and Chesapeake Beach have had a long marriage so we weren't surprised to see a slew of them lining the walls in the bar area. The bartender was efficient and attentive and served the (very good cream of crab soup with sherry), and the (o.k.) steak and cheese sandwich to us with our beers at the bar. Not my preferred place for dining, but it was decent.
Just as a note - 2 years ago I enjoyed an outdoor evening on the large porch (casual, picnic table seating) where there was live music. The service was good then, as well.

Dinner: Crab cakes were great, (creamy) crab soup was just so-so. Service was friendly and efficient. Breakfast: Came back the next day for breakfast and had a great omelette and eggs Benedict.

For the six of us things went very smoothly on a week night. Food was hot and served in a timely manner. Drinks were refilled without asking. Staff was attentive and friendly. Parking lot very small and cramped.

That was my old Navy saying for unexciting food. And that's precisely what we got. The fried chicken was highly recommended by our waitress, but I was underwhelmed. It didn't have much flavor. My son ordered a beef tenderloin wrap, but they brought him chicken instead. Although they offered to take it back, he was hungry and ate it anyway. My daughter's cheese quesadilla was OK. I didn't ask them to take the chicken wrap off the bill, but was disappointed they didn't offer to do so. The service was less than inspired.
We don't plan to go back.

Visited Trader's today from out of town. We each had a crabcake sandwich. No taste to their cakes, not a trace of Old Bay, no lettuce or tomato, cold french fries. Damage? $75 for three people and some mediocre steamed shrimp. Never again will we patronize this restaurant. Way over priced. The quality of their crabcake should lend it to be priced at MAYBE $6.99 instead of the $16.99 they get you for. Come on people, you're a seafood restaurant located literally ON THE BAY! Do Maryland some justice by selling GOOD Maryland food. Ughhhhh.
