Great for brunch. Although it is bar (5 pages of drinks) it has great food. People really enjoyed Zoe's pancakes, Huevos Rancheros, the corned beef hash and the burger. Will go back.

We tried Hootch and Banter for the first time and we were impressed. Really great crab cake and equally great scallops. We’ll be back.

Location is downtown Frederick next to Carroll Creek. Menu is varied, but small. Chef-run kitchen so menu changes. They are always amenable to special requests.
