Dutch's Daughter was a Delight!

My wife and I were in Frederick this afternoon and while I was waiting for her to finish in a store, I went on TripAdvisor and found Dutch's Daughter. Rated very highly in recent reviews, I said to my wife on her return to our car, 'I found a place for lunch'. I set the GPS and off we went.... read more

Well this was my first visit to this restaurant in Fredrick, MD........we picked it on chance and had a friend confirm we should try it. Ok, so the food was awesome. We started with the Tempura coconut shrimp.....Shrimp cooked to perfection and properly cleaned! I had the fried seafood sampler..... fried oysters, shrimp, fish, scallops and a crabcake...... scallops were... More

Sunday Brunch is a grand affair with a large selection of breakfast foods and luncheon foods. Mimosas are killer. I am a crab freak and love crab in any form. The server was attentive. The dining room is beautiful and the tables were not jammed together. I have been there before with fun fundraiser special events in the Dungeon, the... More

The atmosphere was great and service was also wonderful. However, we were not impressed with the food. We ordered the calamari, cheese and steak sandwich, and chicken Chesapeake. It was ok but not better than average.

This restaurant is so unique in architecture and ambiance, but it's the excellent food that keeps us coming back for more. Hands down the best coconut shrimp ever. Equally delicious crab cakes, Cajun crab entree, lobster bisque soup, and famous pecan pie. Prefect for special occasions, private parties, happy hour, etc... Dutch's Daughter is well worth it!

Incredible place. A real hidden gem in Frederick. The main dining area is very well decorated and the food quality and service was great. Make sure to check out The Dungeon" on the lower level -- perfect for lunch and late less formal dining. They also have banquet rooms for events or meetings. Do not miss trying the crab cakes...

I am a local resident, and have dined her many times. They have a excellent reputation in the community, and many groups meet here for functions. Seafood is probably the most popular selection, but I have always been pleased with the food and service. Lunch is an especially good value, the Chicken Chesapeake sandwich is my personal favorite.

This is a great restaurant. Always good food, and great service. Crab cakes are great and the steak is amazing as well. The prices are a bit high but you're getting top notch food.

There really isn't anything to dislike about Dutch's Daughter! The food is simply delicious! I mainly have the steak or fish. The steak melts in your mouth! From brunch to dinner to the Dungeon, Dutch's does everything right. The drink menu is also excellent. If you haven't tried it before I recommend going as soon as you get the chance!

While visiting Frederick last week we had the opportunity to visit this large two story restaurant. The bottom basement area is call the Dungeon. My sister in law and I each got a sandwich and split them so we could both try each. I got the chicken imperial and she got the crab cake sandwich. Also for an app. we... More
