Service was great and the food and drinks were amazing. I had the fried chicken sandwich and it was great. Had both tuna tartare and crab cakes for appetizers, both were great. The staff is very welcoming and our server Conner was great and very informed.

The ambiance is awesome, service is just okay (everyone was really nice, but could step up their quality of service) and the food is hit or miss.

The interior of the restaurant is really amazing and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good place to enjoy a good night with friends. The dishes are great and come in large portion. The waiter was patient in explaining the menu and I love the vibe of the restaurant. Will come back again.

Absolutely loved our experience at the Ragtrader. We initially came for the live music, but also truly loved the food and the craft cocktails. Highly recommend every single one - and you definitely want to get the drunkin' donuts!! Everything was so delicious and the ambience was wonderful. They do a great job about making you feel like you're in a restaurant, even though you're eating outside. Very friendly service as well. Highly highly recommend! We will be back - probably even next weekend :)

Muy buen ambiente, la comida no sobresale pero está bien, para mi gusto en Estados Unidos los mozos no saben, no están capacitados o es por un tema de idioma que no saben explicar cómo es el plato.
El lugar lo recomiendo

Quiet and great for lunch. Good food. Tried it once for dinner and it was too loud for anyone in our large group to hear each other — might work for a date where you can sit close to the other person.
