The name, Trafford, was a family name that has been passed down for many years. When trying to determine a name for this restaurant, we decided to look up the meanings of some possible prospects. Trafford, originally Trapford, means where the land and water meet. What is more perfect for this building built right on the waterfront? Alyn Carlson, our designer, brought the name, location, and building together with an image. The image dates back to the 1890s, and was discovered in the Providence Public Library. The image of a sailboat with wheels has a quirky mystery that perfectly embodies a combination of land and water.
Our goal is to make you, our guests, comfortable and embraced with a wonderful view, exceptional service, and delectable food. We hope that you enjoy everything that we offer and will come back time and time again!
