Amazing meal at The Showroom. I had the meatloaf which was excellent and the chocolate mint milkshake made with real mint leaves. Delicious! I will be back!

I ordered my usual, fried chicken and the greens and was disappointed that the greens were prepared differently than the usual. I mentioned to our server that the greens are not the same and he mentioned that they have a new chef. The greens before were very tasty and it was a side dish that I didn't want to share. I had 2 bites and didn't want anymore. Very disappointed.

Our party of 4 had an 8:30 reservation and was told it would be about a 5 min wait when we arrived at 8:30. After being seated and brought our drinks from the bar we did not see another staff member for 20 mins. Bread was dropped off at the table but still no server in sight. I approached the host stand where I asked for someone to come by to place our order. We had to walk up to the bar to order another round of drinks because no one even batted an eye. A nice server came by and took care of us for the rest of the meal, I didn’t catch her name but she was polite. I understand staffing shortages especially on a holiday, however the table behind us always had several servers hanging out chatting and even gave them a tour of the kitchen afterwards. Just a frustratingly drawn out meal with no apology.

How can an independent restaurant be out of Brussels sprouts? They are sold in grocery stores a few blocks away!
Garnishes should NoT be listed on the menu unless it is identified as a garnish. Didn’t order something because it was on the description of the meal, my friend got it and it was only a garnish easily removed and barely a taste. Beet greens…🥴 Jerel’s service was excellent!

We previously enjoyed Family Meal multiple times - doesn’t appear much different now other than branding. Some similar menu items, some different. Always a good meal. Service was significantly off this time though - waiter blamed the kitchen, disappointing response, and resolution came after lunch was over. Nevertheless we do recommend. Typically good food and good service.

The staff were polite and efficient. Our waitress was able to keep our drinks full which tends to be difficult at most places because I usually have 5-6 glasses of water during the meal. The food was delicious and less expensive for brunch than we had anticipated so we were pleasantly surprised.

The bloody Mary's were so briney we didn't even finish them. The food is definitely not like it was when it was Family Meal. The milkshake was also not even close to as good and the fries that were 100% the best in town are just not. Maybe would try again to see if they get better but was hoping to Family Meal quality.

Sat in heated covered porch but noise was still a bit loud but it was comfortable service and food above average. I would have appreciated more gluten free menu items

The food was excellent. The service was very good. Our only complaint was we were seated at 8pm and the restaurant was hell bent on closing at 9pm. It started at 8:20 with the hostess vacuuming the entry mats by our table. We could also hear the pots loudly banging in the sink to be washed while the kitchen was in clean up. The bar was in massive clean-up mode. There was definitely a sense that we needed step it up and leave so the staff could finish their clean up.

The Showroom is just outside of downtown Frederick, and will worth the trip. First of all, you don't have to pay for parking - plenty of place to park. The restaurant is beautiful with wood and steel and floor to ceiling windows. We sat at the bar - the kitchen staff run that place like a well oiled machine. The chef keeps that kitchen humming and moving - kudos to her! The food is amazing - we had the Duck Fat fries - golden, crisp, and served with aioli and ketchup. Also their crab cake sandwich is delicious. This restaurant is well worth the trip to try them out. Impressed!

A warm welcome on very cold Monday in Frederick. The bar was busy and the restaurant pretty full of couples on dates. Food is outstanding and the wine list is interesting including nice French choices at reasonable price points. Dessert was limited in choice but well done.

The food was very tasty--recommend the meatloaf and the biscuts. The drinks were great too! Our server tended to be a little slow--we asked for extra plates after for the appetizer, and they didn't come until after we finished eating it. We also asked for salt for the entree, and that never came, so we got it ourselves.

The onion rings were very good but the oyster po'boy wasn't very good at all. The bun was too big, too much bread and it was hard and dry. They need to leave the mussels off, they don't add anything to the sandwich plus there needs to be more oysters in the sandwich. Definitely wouldn't recommend the sandwich.
