Come her often for breakfast and have never been disappointed. Decided to try the place for dinner. Had the crab ball apps which were very goo - nice and light and lots of crab. The salads came and it went down hill fast. Found a plastic glove in our salad. How does that happen? Oh I finished making the bowl... More

The food is great, the atmosphere is great! One side food, other side slots, you can even enjoy the outside deck bar in the warm weather.

This is a nice restaurant that sits right in the middle of Chesapeake beach /North beach. The service is good and the food is really good. This restaurant is popular so it gets crowded in the evenings. The crab cakes, and stuffed shrimp are my favorites but the menu still has more to offer. We have been here quite a... More

Strange that a place right on the Chesapeake would admit to making crab from cans bought from Safeway...but the waiter said that it is made to taste and you wouldn't know it came from a can. Well that was true but in a very opposite way. The mayonnaise based sauce was "Pasty" and overwhelmed the taste of the crab. In... More

Had the two eggs scrambled, sausage patties and home fries. All were very good. Not that many choices for breakfast in the area. The interior of the restaurant reminds you it has been around for a while. The service is great with a smile. Looking forward to trying other meals since they are open all day.

I got the crab legs and they were awesome! Everything looked really good and I had a hard time deciding what to order. Some things on the menu were pricey, but they had other things that were reasonably priced and all of it was delicious.

My husband and I eat at Traders often. Their food is excellent and prices are very reasonable. If you especially like seafood, their butterfly shrimp, broiled seafood platter, and snow crab legs are delicious! They have seating inside or you can sit outside on their open covered deck during the warmer months/days. On Friday nights, during the warm weather months,... More

This is one of our favorite places to go on a Friday night because the food is so affordable and the portions are big enough that you will have leftovers. The hostesses greeted us right away and the server was very friendly.
