Food was very good. Seems the kitchen was short staffed. Our food took a very long time to come out. Our waiter (only one for the entire section of a dozen tables) was great-apologized several times for the wait-but we were there for over 2 and half hours(party of 4 with appetizer, entree-no dessert because we were tired!)

Service was good but food came out quite slow. I had the short ribs were very tender and moist. My brother had the pork steak and it was perfectly cooked But on the cold side. We asked the waiter to have it (warmed in the microwave) We think our server misunderstood the instructions because it came back many minutes later and had been cooked further to an over cooked position. At that point in time he decided to eat it because we had waited so long for our dinner. I don’t recommend For large for parties. I think it’s probably more preferable for intimate couple dining. The chocolate torte was very good. However my brothers Apple pie biscuit seemed a bit crunchy and dry.

The food was excellent. But the service was lacking. Was very surprised of the limited menu and the fact that no one ever told us until we sat down at the table.

Went to Trummer’s to celebrate a birthday and it was fantastic! Great ambiance (tall ceilings, beautiful roomy and very clean decor), charming neighborhood, and delicious food (mocktail yummy, bread basket fresh out of the oven and homemade tasting - included an apple bear claw/turnover and eclairs, and shrimp and grits entree perfectly seasoned). Service was also very friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.

We've been going to Trummer's for a few years and love the setting (large historic home in a charming town), the ambience, and service. In late 2020, the chef and menu changed, and although the food is still high quality, the Asian (mostly Japanese) flavors and sauces used in many of the dishes are not our favorite. The menu also is much more limited, with only 6 main courses offered (of which only one was vegetarian). The previous menu offered more choices and variety.

The food was below average. We ordered items recommended by the waitress and it was a bad choice. The scallops were almost cold and crostini were too hard to eat.

We were told that there was a party in the main dining room so we were seated in the more rustic dining area (but without a fire in the fireplace). The music was a throwback to the 70s/80s and not to our liking. The menu came across as pretentious, but not appetizing and the server came across as too familiar, but did try to be helpful.

We had a wonderful 19th Anniversary dinner. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar before being brought up to our table. We had a nice quiet corner and enjoyed several appetizers before our entrees arrived. Dessert was delicious, and they brought us bonus bites and glasses of Reisling to toast our Anniversary. Always a wonderful evening when we pick Trummers!

Food was good - menu is on the smaller side but not in a bad way. Interesting choices with thought to ensure there's something for everyone. Desserts were truly delicious with the Apfel Kuchen being ridiculously so... just get it if it's on the menu. The focaccia was also spectacular - truly elevated bread - how did they do that??? And the service was amazing...in these times of dragging, unimpressive service, Trummers has figured it out. A great night out...

First rate! The entire staff was well polished, engaging and attentive. The food and drink were exquisite, and the owner took extra steps to ensure we had an exceptional experience.

We elected to sit outside, which was lovely, but the local train did come through twice during our visit. Next time I would sit inside or ask to sit further away from the street.

I believe this was my first time to dine at Trummer's. I gathered some friends together, and had dinner to celebrate my upcoming birthday. The restaurant has a great ambiance (when it's warmer, I'd love to dine outside); our server, Joe, was attentive; the food was good, and the reason why I gave it four stars is because 1.) my side of potatoes came out late and 2.) although a kind gesture of the mini spiced cakes was appreciated, I couldn't eat it due to my food allergy. We had a great conversation and enjoyed our visit!
