This place is atrocious. We came here for lunch - just my mother and I. I should have known since there were very few patrons at 12:30. We opted to sit outside. We were given menus, the waitress read us off the specials and we were asked about our drink order. I asked if their mojitos were made from fresh lime juice or bottled. She shrugged her shoulders and stated "I don't know". I asked if she could find out. She checked and came back and stated "bottled". I ordered a diet coke, my mother ordered an iced tea. We waited. 15 minutes later, we were given our drinks. We then ordered our food - both were "specials", mine was a crab melt and my mother ordered a tuna melt. 5 minutes later, another waitress came out and gave us menus. We stated we already ordered. We waited another 45 minutes for our food. I asked the waitress what was taking so long and she stated that the kitchen was understaffed. I said "interesting" because there were certainly very few people still in the restaurant.
Our food finally arrived. It was terrible. My crab melt was on a cheap bun and had some sort of bright yellow something on top. The crab patty itself was all breadcrumbs - very little crab meat. The lettuce was iceberg and the tomato was disgusting. I tried 2 bites and thought I would be nauseous. My mother's tuna melt was cheap tuna salad covered in a white piece of something greasy. The waitress asked us how everything was and I said "honestly terrible". I pointed out how disgusting our meals were and she said that she would "take care of it".
I asked for the check, she brought it to me and it was for the full amount. I gave her my credit card and said "guess you couldn't take care of anything?". She apologized and took it back and gave me 1 of the meals for free. I then looked up this restaurant on TripAdvisor and saw it was one of the worst restaurants in Frederick. When she came back, I told her she should probably find another job because this place is disgusting and the owners clearly do not care about their patrons.
