This is an unpretentious place. The best spot is the outdoor garden, lit with mini white lights. On a recent cooler evening, we chose inside, which is a bit noisy but pleasant, with local artists' work on the walls. Food is the most interestingly prepared in town, IMHO. Maybe not 5 stars if compared with Phila. or NYC restaurants, but... More

WOW! What a hidden gem. Highly recommend. The atmosphere, the food, & the service (Amy) was beyond our expectations. Perfect for our small family reunion.

Eclectic decor is eye catching. I started with the Chicken Liver Pate. Excellent. Then I savored their Wild Boar Chop. It's smoked with something that makes the palate smile. Reasonably priced and generously served. Also, excellent service by the waitstaff. Trance is a hit.

Wanted a special meal for a special occasion. I made a reservation. When we arrived (granted it was a Monday and early). The staff never asked if we had a reservation and said sit wherever. (strike one). We sat and the first staffer could not explain the menus (which the early bird did not have a price on it. (Strike... More

Trabue is fantastic. The outdoor dining is relaxing. Indoors is a little stuffy. Drinks are good and generous. The menu changes frequently and is always great.

Enjoyed my first visit here. Slightly upscale, but not at all snooty. Good food, well presented, reasonable prices. Full bar, wine list. Chef visits each table for feedback. Servers stay busy busy but you won't feel neglected. Lucky if you can find a parking space in the small lot to the east. Even parking 2 blocks or so away if... More

We took my parents to dinner to celebrate their anniversary last night. Despite heavy downpours, business at Trabue was booming! We had a reservation and were well attended. Our meals and appetizers were delicious! Thank you Chef Keith, Stacey, and Dean! 👍🤗
