Wellington Trace Tavern


Wellington has its very own cutting edge, finger on the pulse of the culinary scene establishment. That's right! Wellington Trace Tavern with their new owners and new Chef have created everything other than a ho-hum I can get this anywhere type of menu. To quote the Chef, "I don't do Vanilla…well other than the ice cream anyway." Sure, they have burgers and onion rings and some everyday comfort foods with an interesting twist. However, it is the Chef driven creative offerings on the menu that really garner the accolades and weekly return customer visits.

There truly is a special feeling within Wellington Trace Tavern. Locals call it home; first timers feel welcome and tourists feel like they have found a gem. Unique food, true service and absolutely no heaping helping of corporate taste to be found anywhere. A most coveted and rare accomplishment.

Duck! Yes, Duck, has found its way onto the dinner plate at Wellington Trace Tavern. A scratch made sauce accompanies the duck and blends into perfect harmony. To name a few more specialties, Mint tea reduction marinated lamb chops, scallops gratinee, and NY Strip Steak flashed with a signature bourbon glaze.

Do you like eclectic menus? Great Wellington Trace Tavern has it. Do you like perfectly blended menus that flow from "that sounds good" to "It all sounds good"? Great Wellington Trace Tavern has it. Supposed you like Pot Roast as a comfort food option just to reminisce. Wellington Trace Tavern has pot roast like mom used to make. The menu has it all.

The new interior is nothing short of magnificent. Great pride was taken to get it just right. Part tavern, part warm wood dining room and part comfort at its best, the exquisite surroundings wrap you in comfort yet class all in one. The appeal is for everyone. Treat yourself, family or friends to a memory soon.

Chef Jeff Cantor
Chef Jeff Cantor began his love of food and the world of culinary arts at a young age. Growing up in Lebanon, New Hampshire, Jeff was introduced to great food along the coasts of New Hampshire and Maine. During these trips a love of all things from the sea emerged. To compliment these ocean delights, friends of the family often prepared fresh picked fruit pies, New England staple foods and the sentiment for quality was born and remains to this day.

Having lived in New York, New Hampshire, California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arizona and now Florida for the second time, Chef Jeff has gathered regional cuisines into his repertoire and masterfully blends tastes and cuisines into his very own fusion style of cooking. Jeff prides himself on real food with integrity.

Always using the freshest ingredients and classic technique, Chef Jeff is pleased to bring to your plate, his passion for excellence and the wow factor in every bite. From Fish to Lamb, to BBQ to Great Steaks and Chicken to simple casseroles, Italian, French, American and more Chef Jeff will delight your palate and leave you satisfied and wanting more all at the same time.

When he is not creating dishes in the kitchen you can find Jeff on the golf course, dining out, spending time with his Wife Kathy, Daughter Annika, Son Nicklaus and two granddaughters Ally and Matty.



Great Food, Great Wine, Great People Best of Times,



Chef Jeff
