“Best crabcake ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The atmosphere at the Rhubarb House is so warm and welcoming! The fall decorations are gorgeous - more like a florist shop than a restaurant. But you really wanted to hear about the food, right? We were seated "downstairs" which is just another level of this restaurant with windows for people watching and a cozy seating area. Our server was very sweet and took good care of us. My husband enjoyed a wheat beer on tap and I had a glass of wine. He ordered the pasta bowl with vegetables and grilled chicken - a huge portion which he had no problems finishing because it was delicious. I tried the single crabcake which was a special that night, along with haricot vert and some roasted red potatoes. It was fabulous. The crabcake was full of huge chunks of crab - no filler. It was served with a side salad as well. I would definitely recommend you stop at the Rhubarb House with family, friends, or for a special meal!

“Awesome place to eat with Friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed an evening out with friends and we stopped to have a bite to eat at Rhubarb house and once again I wasn't disappointed. I had the Rhubarb burger with Ceddar cheese and Portebello mushrooms Wow it was great. We had a party of14 and the service was very good. Others in the party had burgers , specials and all were impressed will go back again.

“Good find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

The drive from Long Island to NC is about 600 miles. We so hate the greasy fast food offerings on the road that we have started taking our own sandwiches. This time, however, we decided to stop for some "real food". Hagerstown is just about half way and we found the Rhubarb House to be a great stop. It is a short straight detour off I 81 and has easy parking nearby. There is a good menu of homemade soups, salads and sandwiches including really good homemade burgers. Friendly service and a pleasant environment. i am sure we'll make it a regular stop.

“Nice place for a meal and a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We recently had dinner here before a show at the Maryland Theater. The food was very good, nicely prepared and the atmosphere was very cozy. The server was very helpful as this was our first visit. It is conveniently located right in the center of the city on the main public square. They also do a big catering business in the local area.
