Cellar Door Restaurant who is your bouncer tonight? He is lame. I watched him let two of my friends in for free and when I walked up he told me it was a 5$ cover and was a jerk about it. 5/5/2017

Great food, quaint atmosphere, and excellent service. The multiple times I've been here, I've never been disappointed with the different things I've ordered. They have a great happy hour, and they often have live music on the weekends which is a plus.

Great wings, the old Bay and butter were fantastic. Great prices. The blackberry and burboun sour was fantastic. Happy Hour half price wine and bottles of wine. Fantastic and knowledgeable server. A hidden gem of downtown Frederick.

I understand that they have live groups on Friday or Saturday but at the time we were there we didn't see any. This place can be more than a little bit loud because of its size
