My wife and I tried this place on a busy Friday evening. It's a large place, so you most likely will not have to wait -- plenty of tables. Upscale furnishings and attentive wait staff. Extensive menu -- the appetizer pages are endless! Their Atlantic...More

This is a great place to take significant other or any important guests. Food is consistently good but not cheap by Frederick standards. Good weekend breakfast buffet but again not cheap.

One of two or three places in town that I recommend to out-of-towners. Best crabcakes in town. Great atmosphere and prompt, courteous service.
