This rustic, old-school seafood shanty slash general store is a favorite for those looking to return to the simpler times of surf and turf. Trader's Cafe harks back to the days before sushi and pizza, with a focus on steak and seafood. But there's nothing simple about this menu; the chef likes to call it innovative. And in ways, it is. Expect modern interpretations of classics, such as the Lolli-pop Pork Chop, served with fig au jus, or the macadamia grouper with Thai-peanut emulsion. Lots of plants and wood make for a comfortable interior. Portions are huge, the vibe is casual, and the daily happy hour from 3 to 6pm makes this a really spirited place to be.
