    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?

    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!

    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

    The best breakfast spot in Frederick. FM is also a good option for lunch and dinner. FM helps make the point that downtown Frederick is THE place for better food. One of Frederick's best.

    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 :)

    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!

    Fantastic prawns w grits & gravy, fried green tomatoes, & lemon meringue pie. Simple classics done perfectly w a twist. Service just ok, a few minor annoyances, but the food more than makes up for it!

    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!

    Suppress your snickers and give "precious comfort food" a try. The fried chicken is very good, not Lady and Sons good, but really good and the chicken pot pie bites are other worldly.

    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

    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.

    The fried chicken is to die for! I couldn't even finish the while meal! Service is impeccable and they even have a full bar!

    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.

    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!

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

    From our review: "There is a perfect fried chicken supper" with "marvelously crispy" skin. Fried green tomatoes and chicken pot pie fritters are "note-perfect." Read more: http://bsun.md/U6rQol

    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!

    If you are into root beer, they have "adult" root beer floats, made with root liquor, ice cream, and marshmallows.

    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.

    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.

    Must get the chicken pot pie fritters - it's like bite size chicken pot pie in a fried shell.
  • Angela W.
    I could drink their coffee black, which is a testament to how great it is. I wish they delivered to DC!!!

    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.
