This is the second time I went to this restaurant. The first time was when it was called the Family Meal. It used to be much better. Now it is just average food for a high price. I went for Mother's Day with my Mom and son. The wrong food for my Mom was brought out and then it took FOREVER to get the correct food brought out. The service was slow, but the wait staff was friendly. The bathrooms looked old and kind of dirty.

It was our first time and overall it was ok. The food was actually pretty good but the service somewhat ruined the experience. Ordered cappuccino and when they brought it with no sugar we asked and waiter forgot and didn’t come back to table until it was cold. Basically most things we asked for were forgotten and had to ask multiple times for things that should just be common sense in the service industry at any location.

Service was slow. Coffee and Hot Chocolate was cold. Compote on pancakes was not fresh. Menu options and side items are limited and everything was an extra charge. Food was okay, nothing special, especially considering the price.

The food was excellent, came out quickly and we felt a good value for the price. Like many others have said, the service was just ok. There were a lot of wait staff around but nothing felt terribly organized. We either had no silverware or three people trying to deliver it one right after the other. It felt like staff needed more training and better communication. They were definitely trying though. We would go back!

Jose was friendly and hospitable, as was everyone. My sister, brother-in-law (& baby niece), and I wanted to get out for some fresh air and eats. We sat outside comfortably. We all enjoyed our food -- the greens could use some doctoring -- but we enjoyed the meatloaf, crab cake sandwich, and I had the Nashville Chicken Sandwich. So, that sandwich... it was hot. Not the spice level, but the heat. It's not a complaint. I appreciated having to allow my sandwich to cool off before enjoying it. The chicken was tender, and the batter was crunchy. YUM! Oh, and the Nashville sauce was a nice touch. It was a great experience for us -- but it was also great when Showroom was Family Meal. My family was VERY impressed with Family Meal, thought it was a great concept, but I am glad to see -- from my necked eye -- not much has changed since its transitioned to Showroom. My family shall be back!

Food was excellent and the service was great. Attentive but not overbearing service. Food came out quick and with nice sized portions. We had the crab cake, hot chicken and two kids meals. We also ordered duck fat fries for the table and the pot pie fritters. The Nashville chicken had a nice kick, but not too hot. It also had a sweetness to balance it out. Kids meals were nice sizes and the pot pie fritters were delicious. Glad we got two orders. We will definitely return.

A birthday celebration was nice to share here. The menu is great. We loved the chicken pot pie fritters were fabulous. One of our party thought the pour was stingy on his drink. Two of our diners had to send back the steak for the right doneness as ordered. Nevertheless, the Food was tasty, service pleasant, and the manager followed up with us after the steaks came back.

Reservations made for 7:15 - arrived 10 min early, watched 3 parties who arrived after us get seated before us with either reservations after ours or none at all. After(patiently) standing there for almost 30 minutes, after seeing the 3rd couple seated, we complained to the manager. They certainly tried to recover from there with a round of drinks and an app on the house, but honestly it was ruined. Our waitress couldn’t have been nicer, but bar and food service was still slow. Food was good but overshadowed but awful experience. From what we were told, the only change in this “new” restaurant is new management on basically the same Family Meal restaurant. They need to engage with prior management to get their house in order - this is a total fail for me, we will not be going back.

The service was great but myself and my family weren't impressed with the food. The wings were very good. My daughter and i both ordered the wedge salad which we did not like. Also feel it's more expensive then it should be.

Sat on the patio with two or three other tables of diners. It was a pleasant night for outdoor dining. Staff were masked. Diners who weren’t eating were masked. Service was as fast as you’d expect with restaurants running smaller staffs. Food was as good as always.

My husband ordered MeatLoaf and they were out of it. Somewhat disappointing.
Loved the food, the server was great, but the ambiance is lacking to me. I think it could be greatly improved with some live plants, flowers, and pictures on the wall. We will definitely be coming back.

We were there on Friday evening and it wasn’t too crowded. We were in the outdoor tent which as far as ambiance is lacking. It is a tent on blacktop parking lot after all! The food was really good! The drinks were tasty! Fritchies Forage, YUM! The food came out in a decent amount of time but bar service was very slow.

Lovely spot on the patio with music drifting over from the brewpub across the parking lot. Great food as usual. Over-ordered. Have to remember that the portions are ample. A salad and a sandwich is really more food than you can eat, especially if someone couldn't resist the onion rings to start.

This was confusing restaurant. The price (and the a la carte sides which increases the price) tell me they’re aiming for higher end but the decor is more of a modern diner. The food is good. Not incredible but very solidly good. There are a ton of great restaurants in Frederick that I can get a delicious dinner for half the price though.

I like this restaurant but was very disappointed by management in my last visit. I ordered pancakes which were brought to the table with sides of butter and syrup on the plate with the pancakes. Turns out it wasn’t butter but the mayonnaise for my companions sandwich. I put it on my pancake assuming it was butter before we realized that it was Mayo. I Sent it back and the manager came back to that table to say I was wrong and it was their butter. It ABSOLUTELY was mayonnaise NOT butter. What manager comes back to tell you you don’t know what you’re talking about. I offered him to taste it bcs it was still sitting on the table and he refused. It is an incredibly poor way to treat your customer like they are an idiot- when you’re the one who’s made the mistake. All that over replacing an order of pancakes. No apologies were ever offer from the manager Poor job Showroom. You need to do better
