“Nothing fancy - but quality good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Dutch's Daughter isn't reinventing the wheel but what they are doing is putting out consistent, fresh, delicious items (especially their seafood). My favorite dish is the dutche's platter which is fit for a king. The platter comes with a lobster tail, shrimp, scallops, crab cake and crab imperial all broiled on a piping hot skillet. The value might even be the best part. In DC this would run about 75 or 90 dollars, Dutche's runs for around 50. Not to mention the servers are quite attentive the amtosphere is more than comfortable. When I visit friends/family in Frederick I try to make sure I get to DD.

“Excellent Bday Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A family of 15 visited Dutch's Daughter last night. We had a great time, great food, private dining, and the service was also very good. We had 1 waitress and 1 helper for the whole dining experience and they did a fine job. We were almost bummed because there were no oysters, but within 15 minutes of us getting the news, a truck shipment came in with a fresh batch. This really saved our experience, seeing that many guests wanted oysters. Cocktails were good and no shabby. This is my second experience with this seafood restaurant and I plan to go back soon!
Dutch's Seafood Platter is what I recommend, its a pricey but worth it!

“Top Notch Atmosphere, Food, and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

A client took my wife and I to this place for the first time. The food is extremely good, with the crab cakes being the show-stopper. Best we ever had!

I can't wait to get back to this wonderful restaurant again to try more of their great menu.

“Amazing. In every way.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Hands down, the best crab cakes I have ever eaten. This place not only has charm, ambiance and class, the food and service are beyond extraordinary. I would highly recommend this restaurant for romantic dinners, business dinners or just a night out with friends. It is a true gem.
