We visited Family Meal after many high recommendations from area foodies. Which is why I'm puzzled at the negative and lukewarm reviews on here.
When we visited at lunchtime during Christmas week we were unable to get a table without a reservation, therefore we ate at the bar. This was great because we got to see the service and kitchen, which were highly organized and professional.
My group ordered the chicken, in addition to the mac & cheese, duck fat fries, a crabcake sandwich, and an omelet. We also ordered drinks from their collection of local craft beers. Everything was well-made and delicious. The crabcake was not a true "Maryland style" crabcake with no filler, but it was typical of one you would find elsewhere and tasty. The fries came with several dipping sauces, although I didn't get any duck flavor from them. The mac & cheese was good, and the chicken was moist and tender. I didn't eat the omelet, however the home fries served with it were wonderful.
In all, the service was good and so was the food. I would return soon if they weren't so far away. The prices were about what I would expect for the area and the type of restaurant.
