What was a great place for an hour at the bar, or for some fine food, closed last Fall. It was not for lack of enthusiastic customers, so it left some of us puzzled. In its location we now have "Pistarro's", which is serving Italian dishes, and great wood-fired pizza. I have not yet challenged the bartender, but the pizzas... More

So fancy that I almost didn't go in, but my husband was begging for a bistro style lunch. It was completely empty (2pm not being a peak lunch time, I presume) The waiter told us to sit wherever we'd like while he got our water. We looked over the menu, decided on the white meatloaf sandwich with sweet corn bisque... More

We were driving from BWI to Northern Virginia, and my usual habit to find a place to eat is to check Yelp and TripAdvisor. I want to add our data to both so you GO EAT here. We came at lunch time and I almost made a reservation via OpenTable, but didn't in case it didn't look good in person.... More

The restaurant was a little loud, and the service wasn't so great, but the food was ace. My charcuterie was great, as was my skate. The bread pudding for desert was all it should be :) My wife made a couple of bad choices (the tuna tartar was tasteless and the lamb was tough) but our guest very much enjoyed... More

Last time we eat at this restaurant we were fortunate to have an outside table. Unfortunately all outside tables were taken and we were given an inside table. The inside was extremely loud. We started with a glass of lemonade and the Malbec - both of which were outstanding. For the first course we ordered the blt salad and the... More

A great find. Casual setting, but outstanding menu and very nice wine list. Everything was done perfectly with wonderful flavor balances. This was our first dinner out since returning from France. It tasted like we hadn't left. Certainly worth a try.

We eat regularly in downtown Frederick - at least a couple of times a week. Shab Row Bistro is a bit out of the way on East Street, so we don't go there as often as we'd like, but it keeps getting better. Tonight was one of the best meals we've had anywhere in months! Our waiter, Ben, was very... More

This past Saturday, my wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Shab Row Bistro and Wine Bar. We both thought it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. My wife had purchased an offer from TravelZoo for $59 which entitled us to two glass of wine up to $15 each or $30 off a... More

We happened into SRB for lunch after driving around downtown for a little while. The food was absolutely delicious and the menu had some great options and ingredients. It could be a little overpriced, but the food tasted really good. They had a great wine selection and a very well priced choose your own flight. The atmosphere could be cool,... More
