Strange that a place right on the Chesapeake would admit to making crab from cans bought from Safeway...but the waiter said that it is made to taste and you wouldn't know it came from a can. Well that was true but in a very opposite way. The mayonnaise based sauce was "Pasty" and overwhelmed the taste of the crab. In... More

Had the two eggs scrambled, sausage patties and home fries. All were very good. Not that many choices for breakfast in the area. The interior of the restaurant reminds you it has been around for a while. The service is great with a smile. Looking forward to trying other meals since they are open all day.

I got the crab legs and they were awesome! Everything looked really good and I had a hard time deciding what to order. Some things on the menu were pricey, but they had other things that were reasonably priced and all of it was delicious.

My husband and I eat at Traders often. Their food is excellent and prices are very reasonable. If you especially like seafood, their butterfly shrimp, broiled seafood platter, and snow crab legs are delicious! They have seating inside or you can sit outside on their open covered deck during the warmer months/days. On Friday nights, during the warm weather months,... More

This is one of our favorite places to go on a Friday night because the food is so affordable and the portions are big enough that you will have leftovers. The hostesses greeted us right away and the server was very friendly.

I mentioned getting to a restaurant on the water, so my wife pulled out the map and said lets go to Chesapeake Beach. I thought she had plans, she just thought it sounded good. We did not get there in time to see the bay. We did find Traders Seafood Steak and Ale. I never get a steak with any... More

The Broiled Seafood platter was very good except the scallops were a little under cooked.Side salad was fresh and good. Service was great and friendly. Did not have to ask to get soda refilled. Only problem was the flies that gather near the window that separates the smoking outside patio from the non-smoking dining room. Get a table not a... More
