Very good and healthy choices

We ordered the Pad Thai Entree and they graciously substituted chicken for the salmon on the menu. We also ordered the Tuna Melt. Both were excellent. The service was superb and the ambience delightful. If I go again I'll order the Stir Fry bowls which are less than half the cost of the entrees... read more

We have been to the Orchard several times and have always enjoyed the experience. The food is fresh, healthy and excellent. The service is always prompt and courteous. They try so hard to provide great food at reasonable prices. The salad dressings they make are so good that we usually buy some to take home. We like numerous items on... More

Have been here with large groups (15 people) and small (2). Service is always prompt and good always good. Usually have tempura appetizer and some kind of stir fry. Never disappoints.

We have been here many times over the years. While not a typical "health food" restaurant, it offers a simple menu with relatively healthy choices. Service is typically supplied by starving local artists and it is good. The food is tasty, but not marvelous. This is a nice place to go for a quick, satisfying meal. It is NOT a... More

As always when I travel I do research before each trip. I had high expectations about The Orchard that were not met. The restaurant is nicely located and the space was pleasant. Even though there was a table empty in the window we were seated in the very back at a table that if I were not a size 4... More

We go there whenever we can. We eat out often, so fresh and good is great. Food is always good, pricing is reasonable and service is always good. Their soups are always a treat. Seasonal specials which make it an unusual stop. Been there many times and never a disappointment. Vegetarian dishes also available, which I also like.

We are only in Frederick once a year or so. We liked the Orchard the first time we ate there a couple of years back. We have tried other restaurants but tonight we decided to stop by again to see if it matched our memory of it. And it certainly did! Lots of vegetarian and fish dishes. And friendly service....

We stopped for lunch at The Orchard in Frederick. Our friends had previously eaten there and brought us. The atmosphere is very plain with clean lines and friendly service. The original food is the draw, so we dove into some homemade soup on a chilly day--barbeque white bean and a tomato basil. For lunch we tried the Greek salad with... More

This was the first time for me, but many of the persons in our party were return customers. The selections were many from vegan to game. And not one of our group of 12 went away unhappy or hurgry.

I've eaten at The Orchard many times and every time it is delicious and fresh and overall a really nice meal. My most recent visit was dessert only (and I do highly recommend their desserts) but I've had many a dinner here as well. This is a downtown treasure. I have never taken my child to eat here. I wouldn't... More
