I took my family here for Valentines Day 2009 - what a disappointment. I've grown up eating at Trader's and had a brief hiatus to nurture a new baby. The food was dry, not seasoned and not up to the high standards previously enjoyed. The service was shoddy - out waitress was rushed and never smiled. Someone who was clearing our table didn't know you don't lean heavily onto the customer to reach unused silverware you are clearing after the meal. The best employee was the gentleman keeping our water refilled. To add insult to injury the original bill charged us almost double the price on the menu for one entree and three dollars too much for another. No apologies, just ""oh, yea, we'll fix it"". So sorry I will have to cross Trader's off of our list of dining establishments in favor of goodies like Kincaids, Farrallon, even Cheesecake Factory. If you do go to Trader's make sure you carefully check your bill unless you don't mind paying twice as much as you should.
Pros: Some very old, leftover Polynesian decor.
Cons: Unfriendly service, overcharging, mediocre food.
