Well I can not tell a lie. I am a regular at Trotters. Since the new owners got a handle on things a year ago, quality of food is above the average. The chef is quite creative and is not afraid to try different things. He will also make it to your liking, which is rare now a days. Enjoy!!!... More

We stopped in on a quiet Sunday evening - it was a beautiful day and we're sure most people were enjoying the beach or barbeque. Our waitress, Santina, was great - attentive without being obtrusive. I had the potato soup and a Caesar salad - both were very good. Others had the "stuffed" burger, fish tacos and the kids cheeseburger... More

Good food and generally a nice place. They need to offer more local specials to get my business. A bit noisey for a quiet dinner. You will be happy. Give it a try. Good burgers

I know you don't go to a bar and eat seafood, but I'm not a burger person and they had a tilapia special with shrimp. I've never had tilapia before so I have nothing to compare it to, but this dish was really good. The waitress was bordering on the verge of being annoying because she kept coming over too... More
