Trapper's Chop House Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I went here for dinner for a Valentine's Date...we stayed at the hotel too. It was a great date night...love cooking on "the Stone". Great choice of meats to cook on the stone yourself or pick something from their menu prepared for you! All of their choices are excellent. Great wine and drink list too! Loved the live music too...not too loud just right!
Trapper's used to be a place we'd go for special occasions, however, they've really downgraded their experience. They no longer offer complementary celebration desserts. Their service used to be upscale, but is now more on par with Outback or other moderately priced restaurants. They now have a live singer playing light rock, which seems really out of place for this type of restaurant; this makes it feel more like a hotel bar lounge, which is what it has become. The pricing is still that of an upscale steakhouse, but their service, atmosphere, and food quality is that of a mid-level steakhouse. If you want upscale and romantic, go somewhere else. If you want mid-level, save money and go to Olive Garden, Outback, Saltgrass, etc.
I am DISAPPOINTED to say the least. I have dinned at Trapper's numerous times & previously had good experiences. On January 27th I had important company in town from D.C. & wanted a nice place for everyone to enjoy dinner. Between 5 of us I am sure we spent at least $500.00 on drinks, appetizers, our entrees and dessert. My friend ordered a bone in ribeye & it was cold when they brought it out. My drink order which is simple (raspberry vodka w/Sprite or 7-Up) was wrong twice before they finally got it right the 3rd time. But in order to do that it was challenging trying to get someone from the bar to notice us, even though a very generous tip had been left with the original bartender. The first time they put pomegranate in instead of raspberry. The other bartender explained it was because they didn't have any raspberry vodka. So even though I was standing right there while he made it, he didn't bother asking if there was another flavor I might like. They just thought they would improvise with something of their choosing. It tasted horrible! So I asked if they could make it with citron vodka instead. I was given a new drink with soda water instead of Sprite. I'm just wondering how they might handle making a more complicated drink? I hate being negative & my friend didn't want to say anything to them about his food being cold, but our experience was lousy. I was optimistic that I could speak to the Manager & perhaps they could explain they had new staff or some other valid reason for our poor experience. I left a message for the Manager to contact me & they never bothered to respond. The ambience is nice, but the food and service has gone down hill drastically. I won't be returning & I will no longer suggest it to friends.
We have had several good experiences here and just LOVE their "romancing the stone" sirloin. It was very energetic last night and the guitarist was great. The bread was good as was the dinner BUT the vegetables were very sparse and very soggy, which we have had before. The service was quite slow to take drink order but she was attentive after that. Highly recommended!
Made a reservation 7 days in advance and had to wait 45 min to be sat.
The restaurant was cold, in fact, I smelled the heat come on just as we were finishing dinner.
Main course were good, sides not good, deserts mediocre.
Manager made no attempt to apologize for the wait.
We had a reservation for New Year'Eve at 8:45 but weren't seated until 9:30. The staff was very apologetic for the wait. Apparently, the tables were turnIng over slower than they anticipated. The foods was great and service was exceptional. We had a very enjoyable dinner and got home it time to see in the new year.
Nice dinner, good food but ambience was a bit stale (could use some background music) and the restaurant definitely needs better ventilation. Their "Romancing the Stone" dinner option features a high temp volcanic rock slab for you to grill your own dinner. Previous reviews mentioned how smoky the place gets from this. And those reviews are true. We did not choose to cook our own food (that's why we went out), but there were 3 tables over the course of our dinner who opted to do that, and while the smell was appetizing, the smoke was bad--difficult to breathe if you have respiratory issues (me) and our clothes and hair ended up smelling like we were at a BBQ. The food was good, the ribs not "fall off the bone" that I like, the salads were generously sized, and we had a coupon for a complimentary bottle of wine, which was very good. Wait staff was pleasant, and I think worth visiting again.
We love this place for special occasions. It is a bit of a splurge for us, so we don't go often, but really enjoy it every time we do treat ourselves. If you go, be sure to choose the option of preparing your own food on the volcanic rock. It is such a fun experience, and wonderful to be able to cook your steak to exactly the level you want. For someone like me who can't usually eat an 8 oz. steak in one setting, I like being able to take the extra meat home just barely seared so that I can cook it at home the next day and not have it been overdone.
We had the steaks (Romancing the Stone). Fantastic!! My wife had the chicken and green beans. They were the best chicken and green beans she has ever had. There is a bit of smoke from the Volcanic Hot Rocks, but nothing to complain about. We had the BEST waitress that was very inviting to questions and requests. She never made us feel like we were bugging her. We will definitely come back.
The food was very good, but the smoke was awful. They have these stones that allow cooking at the table. Only two tables were doing so but it filled the room with smoke.
In addition, they don't know if they want to be a sports bar or fine dinning as they are set up for both. We ate in the dinning area which looks nice but they lack the attention to detail to justify the pricing. For example the white wine was too warm and they didn't bring an ice bucket to the table. We had lobster tails and they didn't provide a bowl to dispose of the shell. And if you're there for fine dinning you don't need flat screen tv's in the background.
Won't eat there again without changes like getting rid of cooking stones.
We wanted to like this place, but no such luck!! We arrived on time for our reservations and were promptly seated right next to the kitchen, while the entire restaurant was less that half full. Once we were seated at one of the many available booths near the middle of the restaurant, we were eventually greeted by a waitress that seemed too busy to be bothered with us. After she hastily "stopped by" our table FOUR times, we were eventually able to order a cocktail. Or drinks were TERRIBLE...flat tonic water, which is the worst! As we looked around, we couldn't help but notice how rundown the place looked. Dead flies in the windowsill...NOT OKAY! We decided to not let that ruin our night and were excited when the bread arrive hoping for something worth going off our low carb lifestyle. Disappointed, again with STALE, flavorless bread. We felt very pressured to place our orders and could not even choke down our drinks before our food arrived. I have to say that our steak, game meats and seafood choices were DELICIOUS! The vegetables and potatoes accompanying our entrees were mediocre at best and the "creme brulee" was not even close to the real thing. All in all, while the meats were FANTASTIC, the rest of the experience was substandard and we have several other great steak houses to choose from that have excellent service and outstanding food that are really worth the money. Trappers Chop House is off the list!
The restaurant was very noisy could not even hear the people who were with me. The food was fine, however, quail was not anything like the picture, it was charred on the outside. Not what I expected at all. The steaks were tender and tasty. The ventilation needs to checked as it was so smokey my eyes were bothering me. I was very disappointed with my first visit and the prices were extremely high for what you received. The young men serving the food did not know who had what and twice to give our food to a different table.
The food was good.
The waiter tried to be friendly but talked too fast and due to the background music, he was hard to understand.
The World Series was on TV and the waiter appeared to spend too much time at the bar.
We requested Hot Tea, the room was a little too cold for my wife, we were told that they only had iced tea.
We have been at this location before and have been pleased, this time not so much.
This was our 48th wedding anniversary and probably should have gone elsewhere.
