Atmosphere: B, Food: C, Service: D- Wednesday 6pm dinner for three. Restaurant was about 1/2 full. We waited 20 minutes and finally had to ask for a waiter (seems they forgot about us). Poor service (they seemed very inexperienced) even as restaurant emptied out. The food was all right, but served barely warm. Salads were brought *after* main courses, and to top it off, about ten minutes after two of us received our entrees, we got the waiter's attention (no small feat) and found that the third entree was never put in, so we had to wait even longer for that. Server's fingers were not only on the inside of the glasses when they were brought over, but the server actually touched the appetizers to move them around! Lastly, bathroom was dirty. I have no idea how this place has lasted so long.
I was visiting Frederick for a Legion Baseball Tournament, and wanted to check out a local pub establishment. This place was great. Marcus leads a very friendly staff that makes everyone feel welcome. They interacted so well with everyone and made the visit easy for several "first timers". The decor is simple and several tvs are available for sports fans! The food ranges from burgers to seafood. I opted for a house burger because that is what I was looking for when I stopped in. Marcus recommended the brussel sprouts as a side. The food was great and the experience was a winner. This is a great place to visit, and a place you will want to come back to.
After reading other reviews, my husband & I were nervous about going here w/friends. We needn't have been! The service was great as was the food! We had the fish & chips & could see why they were listed as the best in Frederick. The piece of fish was huge-could easily feed 2-& was perfectly battered & cooked. They weren't heavy-handed w/the Old Bay either. My husband had the shepherd's pie & it was excellent! It is served in a bread bowl & was very flavorful & fresh tasting. The noise level is pretty high but it IS a pub after all! Loved the woodwork & feel of the place. We're already talking return trips!
We eat here often. The food is simple & tasty. Soups are down home good. Real food, mostly made from scratch. We just now ate at a table next to our MD State senator's. Can't see how anyone can complain about the food here or the service.
Servers are nice, food is great. The draft selection isn't excellent (always end up with yuengling) but aside from that, I love this place.
Nice place, good food but Downtown fredeick is such a traffic/ parking mess who would want to go their willingly?
