We dined at Trotters after a business meeting for the first time. We loved the fried pickle spears with ranch dressing as our appetizer. Two of us sampled the signature Brown Jug sirloin steak and fries which we found to be very good. Overall, Trotters has a diverse interesting menu that has something for everyone within a cozy downtown venue.... More

The food was simply ok. I ordered the specialty chicken quesadilla which was supposed to be a house favorite. It's grilled chicken, cheese & BBQ sauce. I actually found it bland. I would recommend they use a sharper cheese to bolden up the flavor. My boyfriend had the grilled meatball sandwich. He didn't finish & didn't comment on it being... More

We had a coupon for dinner and tried Trotter's Tavern on Heatherdowns in Toledo. First, what was good ... A very nice steak entree and a Cobb salad for two of the four in our party. My burger was ok....nothing special and the other entree was a pulled pork sandwich that was ok also. Even though the food was basically... More

We walked into Trotter's Tavern around 6 p.m. on a Sunday evening, before going to a show just down the street. I had called earlier about reservations and was told they would not be busy. It did not appear busy; there were plenty of empty tables. We ran into a waitress just inside the door who told us to take... More

Every year my family gets together on New Years Eve Day for lunch. This year we decided to try Trotters. We were very happy with the set up. We never really know how many people are going to show and they just kept adding tables for us!! The drinks came out quick and the food was great... I recommend the... More

Wow! Besides having great food and a lively, friendly atmosphere, on Tuesday nights is a fantastic big band (about 15 players). While big band music is not my usual choice, this band is so good it's exciting! Not the usual sleepy oldfart boredom! Also young swing dancers are also fun to watch.

A group of my friends and I were attending a show down the street so we chose Trotters to go to since it was close. We got there at 5:30 and place our order. It wasn't packed in there at all at the time. It took a hour and 20 minutes for us to get our food. One friend ordered... More

We attempted to eat here tonight... I had been here a few months back and the food was good.... Tonight, I will never know! It was not too busy, we were sat within minutes and the waitress showed up fairly quickly to take our drink order. The waitress took out food order, chicken strips and a turkey sandwich. After a...

Trotters is a wonderful place for a steak, sandwich, or drink. The food, low cost with ample porportions, is cooked fresh to order. The Reuben and fries I had was tasty as any I've had at fine diners at half the cost. The handcut fries was terrific. They have different types of music throughout the week- big band on Tuesdays,...
