Looking for a family style restaurant with classic items. The name sounds like it fit the bill. We were hungry after a long drive, so just went in. Our first clue that this was not what we wanted is the hard, wooden seats, concrete floor...More

Great time to come 3:30 pm. Burger very good. Onion rings great. But no blueberry in the " blueberry icetea". I'd come back with changed expectations

Chef Bryan Voltaggio's modern American diner offers affordable all-day meals in a former Frederick car dealership transformed by clever design and raw, natural materials into an open, airy space, with a long counter fronting an open kitchen; its menu elevates the comfort-food canon, while adult beverages include boozy milkshakes as well as wine, beer and cocktails. Signature dishes include Fried Chicken with Buttermilk Biscuits, Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy and Duck Fat Fried Potatoes.
