The menu is great and the food is the best in town. The soups alone are worth our 60-mile round-trip once a week. Wonderful staff - feel like family here! Lunch or dinner, or a meal before a show at the Weinberg Theater around the corner, this is the downtown stop.

Stopped here on the recommendation of s friend. Good menu, with vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian and meat options. Fresh food well prepared. I had the gazpacho, veggie melt, peanut butter chocolate square and prosecco-$28 with tax, so not bad. Gazpacho especially delicious. In historic downtown Frederick, but parking garage nearby

We ordered salads to go and were so impressed when we opened them! The price is on par with salad prices elsewhere but the quality of these were superior! So yummy!

You can't usually wander in on weekend evening, but we lucked out recently. Just early enough to beat the dinner rush, and the table we got was well situated for people-watching. The duck special was very tasty, and my dining partner's shrimp was so generous we took half home. The wait staff appear to be recruited from the local art... More

We were on our way to DC and decided to have dinner in Frederick. We stopped in The Orchard on a chance and we're pleasantly surprised. My wife had the tomato bisque soup and hummus with pita and I had the Mediterranean stir fry with salmon and penne pasta. Both were very good and my stir fry couldn't have been... More

My wife and I have visited the Orchard many, many times over the past 20 years. We have never been disappointed with a single dish and we always thoroughly enjoy our meals. Even our grandchildren ask to be taken to the Orchard for dinner. The Orchard has a strong hippie/millennial vibe, but the service is outstanding. Each dish is carefully... More
