I was looking for a nice place to take my 2 elderly Aunts. One lives in East Providence so I decided to take them to Traffords and it was a big hit! 2 of my favorite cousins joined us and the 5 of us enjoyed...More

Great setting water views all around. Scallops were cooked to perfection! Had shortcake for dessert and it was delicious. The authentic kind like mom use to make!

We have gone to Trafford with friends and for date nights. It never disappoints. The atmosphere is amazing and the food is delicious. Order the crab cakes, they are amazing. Get there for sunset, the view is beautiful. Drinks are a little pricey and weak,...More

The only positive thing about this place is the fact it is on the water. Service was not great- no fault of servers, did the best they could- very understaffed. 2 girls trying to service the entire downstairs. Drinks took forever to get & weak...More

Hi Martha, I want to ap\ologize and I am very disappointed to read your review knowing we are much better than the experience that you received during your visit. We normally have three servers working during the day. And you are right only having two...More

I think I have to say my experiences are mixed. Sometimes the service is excellent and the food very good, but other times, the service is not great even if friendly and the food lacking. Some times the food is so good, I just want...More

The waitstaff here has been difficult each and every visit we have made (3X). The food is always good and the servings more than ample. I would go more often if it weren't for the waitstaff who are so rude.More

Hi Pam, It really upsets me to hear that any of my staff are rude to any of my guests. I feel that the majority of my staff are very pleasant and above excellent servers. Please share more regarding your experiences and also if you...More

We went there twice. Both times there was very loud piped-in music making it difficult to carry on a conversation. Staff refused to turn it down saying it helped to ensure that conversations would not be overheard. Stupid. We will not return.More

Hi Charles, I apologize for your experience and really do not understand why my staff would have not turned the music down. I am very sensitive to the music and the volume and am consistently telling my hosts to adjust the music. I expect my...More

We couldn't get a reservation at one of our usual spots since I waited too long to make it. So, since it was to be a birthday dinner, we figured we'd try something a little different and stumbled upon Trafford's. The service was excellent, and...More

Sitting outside in the summer is spectacular. Food and drinks are inconsistent. The space is amazing. I wish it was better!!

Parking is free in a shell covered extremely bumpy lot by this waterside restaurant. There are two levels. We were seated upstairs at a table for two with a beautiful water view. The hostess was friendly. We dined for Sunday brunch ordering beet salad, spinach...More

We dined at Trafford's last evening, and there were plenty of gluten free options! This is a wonderful place to dine!
