Working at hospital nearby, this restaurant was recommended. Situated in an older section of downtown Frederick, Market Street is a mecca of restaurants and nightlife in this smallish town. Nice atmosphere with pleasant oldies nostalgic music. Very efficient waiter, knowledgeable about the establishment's short wine list, beers, entrees and other offerings. Began with gazpacho soup. Although it was very fresh,... More

There's lots of options in this restaurant. The little boy of the friend we were with has an egg allergy and they were excellent in pointing out which dishes had eggs and which did not.

Had Veggie salad and my husband had the portabella pesto sandwitch, both were okay but not great. The main problem was the food lacked real flavor. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and it has outside seating as well. The staff is very efficient and the menu has lots of choices. More stir fry options than I have ever seen... More

This pleasant restaurant does not take reservations but does have a system for calling ahead so that you are on the waiting list. The menu is varied ( all kinds of stir fry, sandwiches, salads, vegetarian and non vegetarian entrees). I had a zucchini parmigana with creamy penne. The parm was delicious and well prepared with a tempura batter. The... More

I was first introduced to The Orchard while getting food for a Vegan acquaintance of mine. I got take-out of the Japanese Stir Fry for him and got a chance to taste it. It was very rich and full of flavour. The second time I went to The Orchard I got the Indonesian Stir Fry and got a taste of... More

Best vegan restaurant I have been to in a long time - great variety and selection. I think it was the busiest restaurant for lunch in Frederick - we had a 30 min wait.

the waitstaff never fails to be gracious and take the time to explain the menu- the food is awesome and theres enough variety even for those who are not 'as healthy minded'. I have never had a bad meal or experience here and have even brought out of town guests here many times- the soups shine, the appetizers are generous... More

We found The Orchard while searching for a vegetarian meal during a recent stopover in Frederick. (They also serve plenty of non-vegetarian fare.) PRO: Lots of vegetarian choices, good food, served quickly. Friendly staff. CON: Decor could use a refresh, servers could use a bit more warmth: a genuine smile would make us feel truly welcome.

Global eatery using fresh, local and often organic ingredients. Made from scratch sauces and dressings. Baked goods made in-house, including the whole wheat bread. My go-to place!
