“Dutch's Daughter is the "happening place."”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I suspect that most people in Frederick have dined at Dutch's Daughter at least once, when they were attending a function of some sort. This is the place for dinner banquets, for luncheon meetings, for annual gatherings, and special awards ceremonies. The staff are incredibly good, setting up for one event after another, each with its own requirements and each handled efficiently and with good humor. The food is delicious, served well, and everyone enjoys themselves.

“A little pricey, but worth it!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We have only eaten here a few times, but the food is wonderful and the service is outstanding. It is beautifully decorated and a warm, comfortable place to have a special dinner. While a bit more expensive than we are accustom to, it really is worth it. Oh, and finding it may be a little problem as it is not where you would normally find a restaurant. It is fairly close in to the city, but the route there is a little odd.

I'd like to go back soon.

“Best broiiled lump crabcakes ever!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Located this place via TripAdvisor en route to Annapolis, and were quite pleased with the late night dinner stop. This is an enormous restaurant, with four dining areas on the main floor, four on the second floor (apparently can be combined for parties) and a lower level bar called the Dungeon. We were promplty seated at 9ish without a reservation. The decor is traditional and a little hokey. Some patrons were dressed up and others were quite casual. The staff was extremely helpful, professional and attentive. We had Maryland crab soup, warm honey wheat bread, a lovely caesar salad and a baked sweet potato. However the star of the show is the broiled lump crabcakes - no fillers. Truly exceptional! We will find our way back to Dutch's Daughter for these!

“Best of Frederick in this Castle with a restauart inside.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Truly an architectural piece of work and top notch food to go match.

Crab soup was almost a meal in itself. Steak was great. Deserts choices topped it off

Overall would say portions are generous and well prepared. Will go again.
