    Get the Burger!

  • Natalie A.

    Must get the chicken pot pie fritters - it's like bite size chicken pot pie in a fried shell.

    Fried chicken plate is delicious but huge - 4 pieces of fried chicken (leg, wing, breast, and thigh) + 2 chives and cheese biscuits + assorted vegetables and pickles

    After ordering we waited 1/2 hr for our food.our waitress finally told us that she forgot to turn in our order, asked us to re-order. they comped it after we asked. Hot cakes were good, service not.

  • What's Good Here

    Order the Southern chicken with buttermilk biscuits, pickles, hot sauce. Fantastic!

  • What's Good Here

    Start your meal with the wedge salad (little gem lettuce, bacon, gorgonzola). Refreshing.

    You can't go wrong with the fried chicken. Try the chicken pot pie fritters.

    Fantastic service and delicious shrimp and grits. Chicken pot pie fritters were just meh.

  • Will H.

    Really nice place. The name suggest we we're about to hit up a Denny's but it's more of a gastropub with a lot of mixing flavors and new types of dishes. No complaints (aside from change the name) :-P

  • Mary K.

    Really don't get the hype over this place. Over priced, inconsistent, bland. Greeter/floor manager yellingb nasty to staff also very inappropriate. Bathrooms were also #fail. #2ndtry #Frederickmd

  • DC Dining A.

    The Burger is a must have, probably one of the best burgers I've experienced. It comes topped with cheddar, bacon and caramelized onions. Order it medium-rare, bite in and enjoy!

    Food is good but it can be better if its was more hot

  • Theresa

    My husband and I were slightly disappointed that both meals had no taste--I had the fried chicken and he had a burger. However, the pot pie fritters and the lavender earl grey donuts were amazing!

  • Patrick B.

    If you were once a couple who loved to eat out at great places but then you had kids and found yourself eating more at Dennys- this place will rescue you. Kid-friendly, but with the great food!

    FYI, if you in need of an emergency diaper, there are diapers in the women's restroom! <BONUS>

    Went for the first time for Saturday brunch. The staff was absolutely wonderful helping my chaotic family of 4 (with 2 kids under 3.5 years). Food was delicious and I wanted to stay for lunch :)

    I never would've expected the quality of food, exceptional service and comfortable setting in a renovated car dealer in Frederick... but it's all three. We'll definitely be back!

    Ken Frager · July 25, 2013
  • Dawn J.

    Great food and wonderful service !!! Will go again soon!

    Dawn Jones · July 17, 2013

    Think about how many pot pie fritters you need, then double it.

    Marissa · July 14, 2013
  • Beth P.

    The pancakes were almost bitter tasting. The coffee was very bitter. The bacon was perfect and the home fries were as well. Even though I was the only diner the waitress seemed eager for me to leave.

    Beth Pennington · July 11, 2013
  • Margo P.

    Fried chicken salad sandwich- not so much. Duck French fries were a total score. Reservations are a good idea but we didn't have to wait too long.

    A good portion of my life was in S.California. FM's fish tacos are easily some of the best I've ever had - nothing in this area (PA, DC, VA, MD) even comes close. I assume it's Michael's influence?

    Austin · June 22, 2013
  • Brittney H.

    The Chicken Pot Pie Fritters are a must try!

    Brittney Haworth · May 27, 2013

    Delicious! And the staff was really helpful and attentive.

    Nicholas Grayson · May 25, 2013
  • Mary

    This place is a perfect example of a restaurant making good food with simple ingredients. The Strata and Pineapple Mint Waffles are amazing. Everything is housemade - right down to the hot sauce.

    Hostess was awesome! Service was good. Pimiento cheese appetizer... amazing! Pickled veggies... awesome! Fried Chicken dinner... meh. Macaroni and Cheese... meh. Sweet tea... good.

    Best fried chicken. Better then lady and sons ( sans other comment ) perfectly seasons and crispy. If your not into that get the mushroom risotto. Drinks are perfect too.

    Samantha Evans · March 10, 2013
  • Tim K.

    Kinda pricey for some items, but the food is always fantastic quality. Try the chicken pot pie fritters or the bourbon ice cream for a real treat!

    Tim Kelly · February 3, 2013
  • John T.

    Chicken Pot Pie Fritters are amazing. You must order them.

    John Taylor · November 26, 2012
  • Heather F.

    The fried chicken is 4 pieces of chicken which is enough to bring a piece or two home for dinner/lunch. The chocolate milkshake is good with the marshmallow but not worth the $5.

    Heather F · November 13, 2012

    Delicious buttermilk biscuits with the fried chicken
