Very solid service and food and a great menu with unique specials. The special on the day that I went was a softshelled crab sandwich that was incredibly amazing in every single way.

The Orchard continues to be my go to restaurant in Frederick for meals with friends, family or date night with my wife. The food is always excellent. The soups are always made from scratch. It's a nice casual atmosphere. The wait staff are a little eccentric but their service is great. They don't take reservations so sometimes you have to... More

Oh how I miss eating here! This was one of my favorite restaurants when I lived in Frederick. The food was always fresh and delicious and they had a lot of vegetarian items on the menu. Even their salad dressings are homemade and delicious! My favorite dressing is the Tomato Tamari Dressing. If you've not been, definitely give this place... More

Very disappointed after finding a place. With many gluten free options for my wife. Her stir fry was bland and my "tempura" app should have been titled "fritters" the batter was so heavy and the veggies weren't cooked. Unfortunately, they overlooked the veggies on my stir fry and then added a very bland sauce.My complaint about the tempura was met... More

After reading reviews on tripadvisor, I chose this restaurant as I am vegan & gluten free and I love organic food as well. I ordered the creole with brown rice and added tofu. My boyfriend ordered the jambalaya. Both were amazing. I can seriously not remember the last time I had such a delicious meal! Our server was very friendly... More

This restaurant is small, but the menu is somewhat diverse. I really liked the food and the service was excellent. Each mouthful was yummy and the atmosphere was perfect to meet a friend for lunch. I cannot wait to go back.

Exciting non-chain eatery with a welcome slant on healthy, vegetarian, & vegan fare! Cozy and contemporary setting in a smaller, store front location within the trendiest area of Fredrick. Everything dish up for our meal was delicious & superb! The service was welcoming, friendly and exceptional! There is no question that we will return for another sumptuous feast!

This is a great place whether you are hungry for a salad (their salads are very good) or a nice pasta dish - the food is fresh and everything I've eaten there has been very good. My wife and I especially enjoy stopping by for a late lunch when roaming around town mid day. Great place to eat!
