    I am baffled by the 4 and 5 star reviews. There’s not a single thing we liked here except the salads - which strangely enough - were excellent. The sodas arrived flat. I mean FLAT. Replaced with “soda from a can” which was not only flat as well, it was watered down. We had an appetizer which was average, but the waiter said the order for our salads wasn’t put in until we finished our appetizer…. Wait, wait… I asked for more dressing for the salad and had one bite of salad left when the dressing came. We wait some more and finally, entrees arrived. I don’t think I’ve ever had bad meatloaf until tonight. Almost no seasoning. Badly burnt (why was it burned at all? The only thing I can guess is they reheated it in a pan before serving). Burned to the point I choked down maybe 1/4 of it only because I was hungry. The mushroom gravy was almost all mushrooms and no gravy and also tasted burnt. Even the garlic mashed potatoes had no taste. My wife got the risotto - something she loves - and ate less than half. Again, tasteless. We both cost wait to leave and rushed to get anything - soda, ice cream, anything - to get the taste out of our mouths. Service? Yeah not so hot. The runner was the only reason I gave the service a 2. He stepped in time after time to cover for the server who was pretty much awol. Will we be back. That’s a great big no. Such a letdown

    The food was terrific! Our visit started out very pleasant. Unfortunately, The kitchen got backed up and our sides didn’t come until AFTER we finished eating. They tried to make it right but our bill came before we even got our dessert. They are operationally challenged. I gave them low marks for ambiance because they allow pets on the patio and dogs slobbering next to me while I’m eating my dinner is gross.

    Not gonna lie, this is a higher end breakfast. But you get your moneys worth and the service was top notch. Our table was ready outside and waters and coffees were quickly dispatched to us upon ordering. My wife, sister in law, and daughter got uncomplicated orders, but I’m a pain in the butt and even more sandwich was delivered timely and with a smile. If the waitress up sells the donut, get one to go if you’re full. It was big enough to split a day later.

    We had 4 people and all tried something different. The deviled eggs and pot pie bites appetizers were delicious. For dinner we tried the duck, hanger steak, shrimp and grits, and meatloaf. Everyone enjoyed their meal. They were also helpful with a peanut/tree nut allergy and drinks were tasty. We enjoyed our meal very much and will return next time we are in the area.

    Open Table App did not reflect that no inside dining was available due to a private evet...likely due to Restaurant Manager not communicating/updating Open Table. Seated outside in 85 degree plus temps where hostess/manager had not considered turning on fans although was able to turn on heat lamps (lol)...need some adult supervision in operation of the restaurant. Wait staff made up for management and hostess shortcomings.

    We sat outdoors on a new little patio in the back, which was very pleasant. I think it was sort of a long hike for the servers, though; things were a little slow coming out. Some of the menu items we tried didn’t seem to be quite as wonderful as they were in the Family Meal days. But all in all it as a very nice experience.

    We were very pleased, our last visit to this location was when it was still family meal last year. This experience was better than our last one. Had been to family meals several times and felt every time I went the staff were more apathetic. The food was great, the service was wonderful. I wrote a yelp review

    The food was great. The fried chicken was the best I have ever had. While the restaurant wasn't busy (3:30 pm on a Sunday), the service was lacking. Our waiter checked on us 1x after meal served and then was seen talking to other staff. I finally asked someone else for service as our dirty dishes were sitting there for too long and wanting the check.

    The mimosas were extremely delicious. The food was a bit hit or miss. My dining companion's salad with shrimp was good but the omelet was pretty bland and the home fries were forgettable. Perhaps the brunch options are not the best options. Try for yourself.

    We’ve tried this place multiple times. Today we ordered the duck fat fries, chicken dinner, and chicken sandwich. The duck fat fries tasted old. The chicken sandwich was fatty. The chicken dinner was the best out of the three items we ordered. The service here is okay; sometimes it takes awhile to come back to your table. Overall, I will try again, but living in Frederick, there’s many other better options.

    The food here is very good, however, I wish there were more choices. Many dishes had hot components to them, for instance “chipotle”, “hot honey”. Most selections do not come with sides, so you must order a side “for the table.” The mashed potatoes were fantastic, but the amount provided is only enough for one big or two regular eaters. Even though they were room temp, the mashed potatoes were still very good and tasty. The service is the issue here. Our server was very friendly, but the meals came out in a disjointed fashion. First the sides, then the entrees a few at a time. Server didn’t come back to check enough for needed extras. The desserts took forever and we had to ask twice for the coffee. Everything tasted really great, though. SO, if you can be patient, this is a place for you. One more thing, the seating is extremely uncomfortable. If you have back or orthopedic issues, you should bring a back pillow, as the chairs do not have low back support and the booths are hard as church pews.

    The last two times we’ve been to Showroom, it’s been a massive regret. We used to love coming here but the wait for food has been miserable. Both times it took an hour to get our food. We always make sure to order asap since we have two small hungry kids but the wait is too long. The food, when it finally came out just practically had no flavor. It’s a shame because it’s literally one of my favorite places to go and now my husband says we’re never going back. As an aside, why on earth are the booths SO SMALL. It’s so extremely uncomfortable for two couples to even sit together!

I have been three times now & every time I go I am always impressed by the staff, on top of the fact that the food is delicious as well! The staff are all very knowledgeable of the menu & give great suggestions of what to try on the menu if you’re not sure of what to eat. 10/10 recommend!

    This is a change of pace kind of place with upscale comfort food and an extensive drink menu. Their fried chicken items are wonderful and various sides are available — although portions of these are not terribly large. A brownie sundae is a good dessert for sharing.
