We really enjoyed our dinner at Trapper's! From the arugula salad (which our server requested to be split) to our entrees to the creme brulee and mousse for dessert, the food and service were top notch. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and there was a musician too. A great birthday dinner and restaurant we could go back to for the next date night.

The food/service/ambiance was "ok"; however, at $30-50 a plate you expect excellent. I had macadmia encrusted turbot; the nuts were stale; didn't taste horibble, but certainly not worth $35. We would not return or recommend.

Very nice place with great service. "Romancing the Stone" is an excellent experience. Steak on a stone is hard to find in The 'States. It is popular in parts of Europe.
Did not expect the restaurant to be at the top of a Holiday Inn hotel. But that is ok. There is a separate entrance so you dont feel like you are checing in at the hotel. The view of the front range is nice.

We enjoyed our first time at Trappers. The steak was good, but not as flavorful as we expected for the price. We expected it to be more like Mortons for the price. We'd like to go back and try it again, ordering something else. The menu had a good variety of other selections. The service was responsive, but not obtrusive. The view is great and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Also want to try their happy hour.

Food was great again. The musician was a bit louder than usual and made it difficult to hear others at the table. When we take people out locally and want a guaranteed good meal (beef only), we count on Trappers.

This is a hidden gem for Parker. The service is awesome the entire staff makes sure you are taken care of. The food is out standing. If you have a hard time finding a Place for a great steak go to Trappers they fix right every time if your not satisfied with thier staff in fixing your steak may I suggest fixing it yourself on thier Volcanic Stone (my favorite). If you want to be pampered this is the place. Enjoy

The stones were very unique but it would have been nice to have them on the side or center and have a plate to put cooked meat on. My son and I shared one and they brought two plates and then put the stone in between us. Our stone plate also had sauces with them. That worked great. The others of the group did not get the sauces nor did they have a place to put their cooked meet. Service was a bit slow, It appeared as though our server has too many tables. Also, we has just barely started our salads when our food was delivered. The food was good. I would maybe try it one more time.

The food was fabulous..a unique dining experiance...a must for a special occasion. The service was great..The musician coulds have been a little quieter as it was a challenge to keep conversation going at times..and this was a time when conversation was a must(our son's college graduation!). Parker's best kept secret...I will spread the word!!

They have a special way to cook steaks called romancing the stone where you get your meal brought out to you with a hot stone on your plate and your meat cooked rare; then you cut up your steak and finish cooking it at your leasure. It cooks within seconds and is really easy. The filet mignon is excellent!

We've been to Trapper's several times. This time my steak wasn't very good; prepared well, but a poor cut of meat (NY Strip). Service was good as always. Prices seem quite high to me for an upscale casual restaurant.

We had heard lots of good things about Trapper's - especially about their happy hour and appetizers, and decided to go for Mother's Day brunch.
Unfortunately, the end result was not good. The food was mundane and the buffet was set up so high it was difficult to serve yourself. The containers used were heavy and people kept letting go of the tops and causing a loud and shocking noise.
Our waiter was kind and helpful as well as the bus staff.
We won't be going again, but again, have heard it is a great place for drinks and apps.

I've been to Trappers twice now, both on Friday nights and my overall experience has been good. Frankly, I would go there for the atmosphere because its a little blah & very noisy for such a high end, expensive restaurant. I go for the food, which has been great on both occasions. Going with their "Romancing the Stone" steak option, choosing the 8oz filet is a wonderfully unique experience. Keep in mind that it is a very pricey place $$$$.

We had a great experience here for my fiance's birthday. The food was amazing. We had a variety, baby back ribs for our appetizer, steak oscar, filet mignon, and lobster tail for our entrees. The meal and the service was outstanding! Who new there was such a treasure onthe 4th floor of the Holiday Inn?

We went to Trappers for Easter Brunch. The service was fantastic, ambience nice with a live jazz musician playing in the background. Although the food was good, huge shrimp, carving station with prime rib and ham, omlete bar, pancake bar, we were disappointed by the lack of other choices. The only vegatables offered were fried potatoes and salad. It was the first bruch we have ever been to that didn't offer at least, mashed potatoes and some form of steamed veggie. The canadian bacon for eggs benedict was hard as rocks and the hollandaise sauce was too thick and luke warm at best. (tasty though) At $28.95 per adult and an additional $6.00 if you want bottomless mimosas, we expected more! Next year, back to Simms Steakhouse!~

we were very disappointed in the quality of the food and experiance. For the price it was not worth the visit. They have a interesting niche with the hot stone cooking at the table however we found it to be very combersome. If i'm going to cook my own food i'd do it at home the way i'd like. Very little flavor to the meat or vegatables.

Trapper's was our second choice, our first was closed for the evening. Boy, were we glad. We have found a great little restaurant in Parker! The menu is extensive with a great variety of choices, many of which you won't find at other restaurants. We opted not to cook on the hot stones - it looked like fun, but the women in the crowd agreed that we cook every night and preferred to let the chef do the cooking for us!

Ordered Steak Oscar well done. It turned out very dry and didn't have a lot of flavor. I always order tenderloin elsewhere well done and it never turns out this dry and flavorless. My husband ordered bone-in ribeye with "a touch of pink" and it was rare and very full of fat; over 1/2 of it was fat. The stuffed portabella mushroom wasn't stuffed but it was topped and sat upon a pastry. It wasn't too bad. Our server was excellent. Over all for the price it was not worth it and we won't be back.

We started off with the Tuna and it was horrible, very fishy tasting and that was after waiting 20 mins for it to comeout, not good at all, then the staeks came out and they seemed like they took a long time to come out too, and I had all night to wait too so I was not in a hurry, my wife had the filet oscar and said it was good but I had a bite and the staek had zero flavor, mine came out on the stone and I would not recommend that either, not a great experience

Not too bad. What it doesn't say is that the restaurant is inside a Holiday Inn hotel. This would make it a bit hard to find and Open table should make it clear.

One good thing is that they have music around the bar area and that adds something.

Food is okay, service is a little slow, but they are working on it and you can tell it matters to them.

Wine choices are pretty good.

Food was OK, nothing spectacular. I felt like I was in a Holiday Inn, which of course I was, but...you know what I mean. I would rather spend a little more for much better atmosphere and food (think Del Frisco's), or a little less for better atmosphere and comparable food (think Salt Grass Steak House). The service was excellent.
