"A Unique Dining Experience"


The Republican newspaper regularly publishes "A Unique Dining Experience". Brenda's Pizzeria, Trader's Coffee House and Ace's Run were featured in the May 7th issue. Click the above link to read the entire article!

"Warm, inviting, cheerful are just three of the many positive adjectives that describe Brenda McDonnell's Deep Creek Lake eateries: Trader's Coffee House, Brenda's Pizzeria, and Ace's Run Restaurant & Pub.

"I want my customers to feel good and have a good experience," she said. The Bronx, New York native credits her talented, dedicated staff for accomplishing that goal.

Fresh local produce, honey, and maple syrup, and other high quality ingredients, all carefully prepared in-house, plus hard work, attention to detail, and devotion to customers and community are also key to her success.

"I love living here. I'm from New York, but, still, I just love the community, the neighborhood feeling," said the recent Garrett County Women's Hall of Fame inductee.

Brenda and her staff also contribute money, time, and effort for various local, fundraisers, including one for the Northern High School library and the annual Taste of Garrett County."  -- The Republican

Garrett County Women's Hall of Fame: Our own Brenda McDonnell!

On Sunday, April 26, 2015 The Garrett County Commission for Women inducted Brenda McDonnell into the Garrett County Women’s Hall Of Fame.  Each year the GCCW honors local women who have made substantial or outstanding contributions to the economic, political, and cultural life of Garrett County. 

Brenda has spent the last 30+ years not only as an entrepreneur and sound business woman, but as an advocate for the county and the people that live here.  Her nomination included numerous recommendations from local business leaders and friends that have witnessed firsthand her dedication to people and our community. The nomination also included testimonials from current and former staff members that credit time spent with her as teaching them the discipline needed to succeed.  She is, has been and continues to be a leader, a mentor, and friend to many.     

2015 Inductees also included Karen Meyers and Hannah Sincell.  Congratulations to all of you and Thank You for your contributions to our community.
