Traders Seafood Steak and Ale

For over twenty years, the building has seen quite a few changes, some intended, as others were inadvertent. One in particular, known as a “blessing in disguise”, happened on June 4th, 2008, when Traders was struck by a tornado. After a summer of remaining closed for renovations, through the hard work and dedication of the Luckett family, countless employees of both the restaurant and Luckett Construction, and the community, Traders reopened in September with a brand-new look. In the years since, several other renovations have occurred to keep the restaurant “modernized”, while still holding on to that charm of being a celebrated local treasure right in the heart of the Chesapeake for over 60 years.
