Volt (Review) - website - Originally the best restaurant in Maryland, Volt used to merit a special trip to Frederick, Bryan Voltaggio is now spreading himself dangerously thin
Tasting Room - website - Two meals here have convinced me this is the second best restaurant in Frederick, good wine program, noisy and crowded
Family Meal - website - Upscale American diner reminiscent of a Big Boy, good fried chicken, worth a detour if you're driving by, owned by Volt
The Orchard - website - I've never been to The Orchard, but trust the people who have, very customer-oriented
