We’re new to Frederick and wanted to treat ourselves to breakfast our. We were so happy to find Showroom. We sat outside and had one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had. My pancakes were light and fluffy, the blueberry compote just the right balance of sweet and tart. My husband had the omelette with andouille sausage and it had a great kick! The home fries were so good, I wanted to take his whole plate, lol! They were extremely busy, but the whole team managed to keep pace. Bravo! Run, don’t walk.

The scallops were yummy. And the fried chicken was just like I remember. Crispy and juicy. The best part of the fried chicken dish? The biscuits and pickled veggies that come with it!
While there was a little delay with one of the salads coming out, the portions were huge and we decided to just split one beet salad. They took the other salad off our bill without question. Service was super responsive. We will definitely go back.

My only "kind of complaint" was that my food was not at all hot...mac n cheese and greens should be served hot/very warm. But that's the way I like my food. Other than that the food was very good.

Since we had a reservation we were seated as soon as we arrived. Fantastic food! My only complaint is that our server never introduced himself and was visibly annoyed when we asked for a split check.

Aside from the name change, this is basically family meal. Most of your favorites, including the fried chicken are still here. I had the scallops served on a bed of creamed corn which were excellent, my partner had the fried chicken which was as good as always, and my friend had the gazpacho, with out the seafood, and the wedge salad, which was huge. It was more like two wedges. It was nice that they could accommodate her food preferences as she does not eat shellfish or meat.

Other than that, it was a good meal as always, although I was expecting maybe a few changes, but I always enjoyed family meal, so overall, glad we finally went/came back.

Had a great meal. House made onion rings excellent, burger cooked perfectly and mushroom risotto was delicious. Only negative was the acoustics were terrible and it was tough to have a conversation - this was worse when the servers were talking through masks!

Went for brunch. Food was delicious…shrimp and grits, fried chicken, and omelets with carmelized onions were amazing!! Waiter spilled cream all over table and struggled to clean it up well. We kept finding cream under our cups and in our menus. But all in all definitely recommend!

Although the cheddar and chive biscuits and fried chicken were state of the art, the shrimp and grits were bland (no salt in the grits ) and the andouille sausage didn’t taste like andouille. Our waiter could not name the soft drinks on offer and didn’t even refer us back to the menu where we found our answer. Everyone was quite friendly, though, and the patio seating was functional.

Brought family visiting from Mississippi for a nice dinner. I had the Shrimp and Grits and the meal was delicious. Not your ordinary grits! Visiting family member commented about how open and inviting all the windows make the restaurant.

The food unfortunate is where this restaurant lacked. We’d come here several times while it was family meal. The flavor unfortunately of the same dishes just weren’t there.

We were able to grab a last minute reservation and we were so happy with our choice. I had the fried chicken which was served in a adorable chicken shaped dish. We ordered the greens for the table which were so good. Best I’ve had. Services was very very good too. Will def be back!

So glad this restaurant reopened as Showroom. A lot of familiar menu items from before. We had 2 starters: the deviled eggs are incredible. My wife makes great deviled eggs and these are the best she’s ever had. We also got the pimiento cheese with cornmeal pancakes. This was also very good, but they only give you 5 mini-pancakes which is not enough. We asked for more, and they charged us $5 for 5 more small pancakes, which seemed excessive. Bryan’s Hamburger is excellent.

Food was excellent, as was service. Only slight hiccup was waiting a little for our bill, which we realized happened because our server was called outside to wait on a large party. And one other hiccup is that between the restaurant and Open Table it seems it was noted we were a no show, when we were definitely there. Hopefully that can get cleared up soon.

Food was just ok. We had been before when it was Family meal, I noticed when making the reservation that the menu was pretty much the same as the previous restaurant. Food however was not up to par for what we were expecting. My scallop meal was incredibly salty, my friend got the shrimp and grits and commented hers was also very salty as she drank 3 glasses of water. We ordered tea to drink but it was so weak it should have been water. Probably will mark this one off the list.

The service was excellent! Staff was polite, prompt and attentive. The food was good. I liked their potatoes and biscuits. I didn’t like the taste of their syrup. Will definitely come back to try their chicken and waffles.
