    My wife and I went there for my birthday. Aside from my steak being just slightly underdone, the food was great. There isn't a huge selection if you're not a red meat eater, though. the ambiance was pretty nice and the prices were reasonable. They also had a pretty good draft beer selection.

    The service was pretty good. Got seated quickly and even though we were participating through 5280 week, the service was prompt and friendly. The bread and drinks were spot on. The salad was very fresh and tasty. The main course was okay, our stakes for medium well were pretty pink but hot. The vegetable mix was bland and not that warm. The dessert was top notch.

    The stone for the steak was a fun way to eat the steak exactly how you want to cook it. Everything was hot because you only needed to place it on the stone for a few minutes to heat it up. It was very good...an unusual restaurant to be located in a Holiday Inn.

We have had Meva as our waitress multiple times and always get consistently great service. The stone cooking is unique and it assures that every bite is hot and tasteful.

    The food was off-the-charts delicious and cooked to perfection! We were there with another couple and our waitress DID NOT bug us 100 times during our meal so we could have a nice conversation and enjoy our meal without kids! Dessert was great. Tables ARE PERFECTLY SPACED! I hate when tables are placed so close to each other you can over hear conversations, so this was a nice change. Had a perfect evening!

    I came to the chophouse to celebrate my boyfriends 20th birthday, so as for the alcohol I can't comment, however we had a great time overall. The only complaint we both had was the poor ventilation. There were two large groups who ordered and chose to cook their own meals, and the room became filled with steam from 12+ people cooking. Fortunately it didn't last long and we are still planning on going back some other time. The food had such a unique flavor, and I truly felt as though we got our moneys worth.

    We have been to Trappers several times. The evening started out a bit slow. Our Server was overloaded with tables. Plus the dining room was a bit smokey. Once she turned the air back on, that was cleared up. Our evening turned out to be quite nice. A bit noisy and at first, then it cleared out a bit and we could carry on a conversation.

    What a wonderful experience. Don't pass up an opportunity to dine here as the food is wonderful, the staff very helpful and piano music a great asset. We ordered the romancing the stone steaks which means you cook it yourself at the table. Great fun but the table area gets very warm if you are in a booth and more than one person orders this. Give it a try for a special event as it is a fine dining restaurant. LOVED IT.

    Good to have a non-chain option in Parker; however, food is only mediocre at best. Prices are upscale for non-upscale food. The cook-it-yourself novelty wears-off rather quickly. While okay for a one time shot, there is no reason to try again. The prices were high, and the food and service were just okay. Kids were running around this restaurant like it was a Chucky-Cheese; yet the prices were trying to be a Del Friscos. While not necessarily the restaurants fault, many of the adult patrons were wearing ball-caps and jeans at what is pretending to be an upscale dining experience - not. Still, glad to have an option other than the usual chain-fair in Parker.

    My husband got the quail and it was very dry and tough. Tasted a bit like it may have been freezer burned? He loved the mashed sweet potatoes and grilled asparagus though. I got the lamb, which was very good. The side of vegetables I would swear were from a microwaved frozen bag. Broccoli, califlower, and peppers...all wet and soggy with no seasoning. It was very hit and miss.

    Food was OK - steak was flavorless, even though we had asked for the Trapper's seasoning - jalapeno cheddar mashed potatoes were to die for! Service was OK - our server was good, but everyone else that stopped by the table seemed bothered if they had to do anything more than drop off our food, like answer a question. I would definitely NOT recommend the "romancing the stone" dinner option. While it sounds like something fun to try, it's just the opposite - you sit there the entire meal with heat and smoke blowing in your face - and since they don't bring you a secondary plate, you have to be careful not to burn yourself while you try and eat your side dishes. Food and drinks were both WAY overpriced and we felt like we were always rushed.

    The venue is really nice. You take the elevator up and get off in front of the restaurant bar. The wall to your left is all windows with a very nice view. The restaurant itself is laid out well and pleasant. The food should be better for the price. It's not bad, but it's not great either. Our waitress was sincere and warm but could have used some training. The 'Romancing the Stone' option, basically heating your steak at your table on a hot rock sounds great but in practice doesn't work so well - it creates a smoky atmosphere that is a little irritating if you have sensitive eyes or nose. I had the buffalo, very dry, it is a lean meat but I felt the chef should have been able to overcome this with either technique or a sauce.

    Relatively new to Parker looking for a great place to celebrate. Trapper's more the exceeded our expectations. Excellent service and very good food. We tried table top cooking on the stone and while not our style it was fun. Booths are large for parties of 2, we'll probably do a table next time. Staff made us feel special. The very nice view is mostly lost because of seating placement. We will introduce our new friends to this fine restaurant.

    Don't let the fact that it sits on the top floor of a hotel steer you away. The food is incredible! It's not the kind of place you go every Friday night as it is pricey. We found a coupon for "buy one get one free" so that helped. We have one more coupon so we plan to return. After that, I guess we look for more coupons.
