I WISH I COULD GIVE RATING. The service is terrible. Happy hour? by the time you get a drink happy hour is over. and last week my card was charged for a 75 dollar tab of someone else. not a big deal, right? Wrong. When I requested a reciept confirming the charge would be voided/dropped I was advised I could not have one. The waiter was rude, irate and threw my reciept in my face when asking for the managers info. The manager Richard, when I finally got a hold of him by calling repeatedly (after no call backs from voicemail left) stated he was sorry and there was nothing he could do. TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE.

In a couple of trips to the Cellar Door we have had 2 good meals, 2 acceptable meals, and 2 poor meals. The service is inconsistent even on slow nights. Market street has too many good places to eat to bother with an average one.

Owner/host very accommodating but the food is just so-so. Too many excellent restaurants nearby, wouldn't bother with this one.

Tony and I recently dined at the Cellar Door. It's a cozy and warm restaurant located in the basement of the building. It used to be the Brown Pelican, our all time favorite restaurant in Frederick, but it closed a few years ago.

There are two sitting areas plus the bar area with a few tables. Tony and I decided to sit in the bar area for our meal. Next time we'll sit in the restaurant area, as the bar chairs were uncomfortable.

We started with the fried mozzarella appetizer, which came with roasted peppers, tomatoes and a balsamic sauce. It was very good. The breading was very light, maybe panko? ($8.50)

Tony had the Eastern Shore - a medley of seafood (fish, scallops, mussels, shrimp) with rice in a tomato and wine broth and served with garlic toast. ($26)

I had the crab-stuffed shrimp that was served with asparagus, polenta and tomato butter. ($29)

Everything was excellent, including the service! However, be warned, the portions are not huge but for us they were prefectly fine. We walked away comfortably full. No doggie bag from this place. It's definitely a place for a splurge dinner with their pricing, but well worth it! Pricing is no higher/lower than most of the other popular restaurants in Frederick.
