I have never had bad food here...the Sunday brunch is great for a special occasion - best deal for the variety. Love the crab cakes and the salmon! The crab dip is delicious! The cream of crab soup has a nice flavor and is quite decadent.

My stepmom, husband and I went to Dutch’s Daughter's Dungeon for lunch after visiting downtown Frederick. I was concerned that despite the good reviews, that the crab cake would just be ‘okay’, but it was amazing! It was a good-sized crab cake filled with lump crab meat and cooked to perfection – not dried out. I did add some extra... More

I would like to thank Jeff who works at Dutch's Daughter for personally walking me through the buffet line informing me which food items would work with my gluten intolerance. The food choices were enough to make for a delicious brunch. Thank you.

The food at Dutch's is very tasty. The pricing is what you would expect with the type of food being served. The only drawback is the service was lacking. We had to wait a long time for the waiter to return back to the table to attend to our needs. The atmosphere was very nice and the quality of the... More

Dutch's Daughter has been a mainstay of the area for many years. The restaurant has great atmosphere and great food. The staff are well-trained and the restaurant's menu has something for everyone. The bar is well-stocked as well. Dutch's is also a place to consider for events. Their event catering as wonderful, both for buffet style and sit-down dinners. Although... More

Had not been there for a few years after going many times over many years. We assumed it would still be good but had a little trepidation. It was better than ever! I always get crab cakes which are the best anywhere. Some of our companions had other fare and they raved. Easily the best food you can get anywhere.

We were in Fredrick for an errand and lunch time struck. I used Google to find a restaurant nearby and this place came up. I had not heard of the place and was surprised to find this excellent restaurant in a residential area. We opted for the lower level and sat at the bar. I asked the bar tender what... More

This was my first time in Maryland and I was eager to try some Maryland crab cakes. Not only did I come across this spot on Tripadvisor, but it was also recommended by my hotel. We opted to dine in Dutch's Dungeon, and it was an amazing experience. The upstairs dining room is more formal and upscale, while the dungeon... More

We've been to Duchess Daughter many times starting back in the late 80's when they were located in smaller building at a golf course. The food, especially the seafood and service has always excellent in a pleasant atmosphere. The prices were always above average but you were getting above average food so it's worth it for a special dinner. I... More
