Due to two servers not showing up to work, and a large party in another room, it took 70 minutes before our salads to arrived, and one main arrived without it's sides. Have had much better service in the past.

It was a Saturday night before 7:00. They were out of the first, second, and third choice of steaks that we ordered. Then when our food did come my husband and I had to switch steaks, due to the fact that they cooked them incorrectly for what steaks we finally were given.

a good lace to eat. my steak was really really good, the wife's steak had a lot of gristle in it. Get the Coffee cheese cake, you will be glad you did. Wait-staff was very good. I do wish they had more / better stuff on the walls. We will go back again.

We booked a reservation for 2 @ 6:45 Saturday night via OpenTable since the phone listed goes to an automated message and we were not sure if our call would be returned in time for a dinner reservation.
We had a short wait at the bar but were seated exactly on time.
I wish that one of us had ordered the beef rib special ! Another table ordered it and it looked wonderfully delicious!!Next time!!
We started with the Caesar salad . Yummy with the right amount of dressing. Note to staff: please consider bringing the delicious cheese biscuits with the salads instead of before.. We probably looked like we were starving but they were gone before we started our salads.
We had the sirloin and ribeye and both were generous steaks. And not to worry, our server brought us some extra biscuits!
The baked potatoes were very good simply dressed with butter as we requested.
We raise and eat our own premium angus beef and are usually not impressed with restaurant steaks. We are concerned about restaurants not sourcing their beef from the USA but these were definitely the real deal.
They were beautifully trimmed and perfectly seasoned. Rich beef flavor and cooked to perfection.
We skipped dessert due to the generous portions so we cannot comment on that.
All the staff were busy with the full house and we were very well attended by Reagan. She was professional and very knowledgeable about the origin of the beef we were served.
This is a restaurant that can seat large family groups in the open layout so there is some conversational noise but it is very pleasant to see families enjoying this restaurant!
Thank you for a lovely dinner and we fully expect to return and bring our friends.

The room needs wall decor to absorb sound (and make it nicer). The restaurant has been open long enough to get this done. It's loud in there.

Food quality has dropped. Steak bites used to melt in your mouth; now it takes a minute to chew one bit and the flavor is no longer spectacular. The amount of brisket was 50% of what I got the last two times I ordered brisket (but still yummy). The Caesar salad was drenched in dressing, just too much. Service quality remains very good; the staff is attentive and wonderful. Just need to dial up the kitchen quality and decor, otherwise the place is losing the high standard they had on Day One of opening.

Bless their hearts, they are trying to be a real restaurant but it’s just “off”. Atmosphere is way too open, service is substandard, and the food is not the quality we expected for the price. It’s like getting a high-end dining bill without getting the high-end dining experience.

The food was good but service was tough. Took 1.5 hours for our food and our orders weren’t complete. They dropped our food and pretty much left us to fend for ourselves. They did take some $$ off of our bill but I’m not sure we will back. The restaurant wasn’t busy.. multiple tables came in, ate and left before we were served. I don’t know what the issue was with our table.

We brought a guest from out of town for dinner. This gentleman owns several fine dining restaurants. He was VERY impressed with Day Traders Grill. The facility, the service, the extensive menu, prep, presentation and excellent selection of fine spirits. Well done, and thanks!

Our server was good. Steaks were really, really good! French fries and sautéed squash were excellent. Dessert was mediocre.
No one was masked; tables were crammed together.
The noise level was hideous. We literally had to lean across the table to hear each other. We were hoping for an upscale dining experience; we were sorely disappointed in that.

Excellent steaks and a wonderful, unexpected side of Black eyed peas! Friendly, capable service from smart, articulate folks. Additional value added: An extensive selection of fine Whiskeys that rivals any big city establishment I've patronized. Highly recommend this fine restaurant.

Was 51st anniversary meal, I don’t know what some of these reviewers are complaining about but everything was great for us. I have a hard time with people comparing about having to pour their own water out of decorated water bottle, or complaining about a paper menu with a stain on it ours was perfectly clean. The food was cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. Our salad came within 5 minutes of ordering it. We ordered onion rings for a appetizer, they were best we’ve ever had. I had 12 oz New York strip and wife had 12 oz ribeye, they both were cooked perfectly, service was great, always coming by to check if everything was ok or if we needed something. Very friendly staff from waitresses to door girl to buss boy everyone was supper friendly.

We ordered the crab cakes appetizer and both of us had the filet. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Nice to see the menu has expanded, though this steak is so good we haven’t ordered anything else.
The noise level is compounded by all the hard surfaces. The restaurant wasn’t full, yet it was a bit hard to hear. Maybe some banners from the ceiling would help. Can’t wait to see what they chose to decorate the walls.
Our waitress was wonderful and the entire staff was very friendly.

The 7 oz tenderloin steak was so tender I could cut it with my butter knife. The garlic cheddar biscuits are the best I've ever had. I suggest their cheese curds for your appetizer. The service was wonderful. Our waitresses name started with a D. I apologize for not remembering it. But she was very good.

1. Only plus was my water came in a pretty water bottle.
2. I felt like I was eating in a noisy barn. 3. No dishes for vegetarians.
4. No baked potatoes.
5. Paper menus are reused. Mine had a stain on it.
6. My husband's steak was good. Was hoping for an excellent steak.
7. No chicken on the menu.
8. I ordered Ceasars salad. It was the size of a side salad yet cost over $5. Nothing special.
9. I ordered the banana pudding. It didn't taste any better than mine made with a mix. It was presented parfait style. Not a good idea. The whole top half woz whipped topping with a vanilla wafer stuck in it. At least 2 more of another wafers in the pudding. It was very difficult to get through the whipped topping and the vanilla wafers to get to the actual pudding. This was a very disappointing dish.
10. The waitress was very nice but it was very obvious that she did not have much, if any, waitressing experience.

Seating was right on time(we had a reservation). Staff is a little disorganized. Communication between server, bar staff, etc needs to be improved. Staff was courteous and quick to remedy the issues we had, but at these prices it should be seamless. We're enjoyed all the dishes we've eaten and the portions are good. One issue I find mind boggling is that on a Saturday night they had no baked potatoes! That is a serious oops. Overall we enjoyed this evening and will return.

Our third time in about a month, since the food is so good. However, our experience took a turn downward this time.

We waited about 30 minutes past our reservation to be seated. I thought the seating area was full, a good sign, but no. It was half empty and clearly a shortage of servers and/or cooks.

From the time we sat until food brought to the table, for a party of six, was one hour. Way too long.

The menu was changed, but not sure for better or worse. The brisket, asparagus, and apple pie - all excellent on previous visits, were not on the menu. I'm okay with sampling something new, but I was planning to order the same meal I had two weeks prior.

The steak bites continue to be amazing. For a kid, that and a Caesar salad makes a great meal.

Could not carry a conversation because of how loud it was in the room. Sound barriers need to be added before we return. Menu needs to expand a bit.
