Cellar Door Restaurant who is your bouncer tonight? He is lame. I watched him let two of my friends in for free and when I walked up he told me it was a 5$ cover and was a jerk about it. 5/5/2017

We met friends here for drinks. It's a fun, "hole in the wall" type place with fun drinks & gives you the feel of old Frederick. It's below the street and has the original bank safe in the wall which is cool. Staff seem friendly & were handling a busy crowd on a First Saturday night quite well. We had... More

We were part of a rehearsal dinner held here at the end of December. The staff was very good with our party of 35-40 people, they paced the evening well, and we never felt ignored. With such a large group we had the choice of crab cake, 1/2 chicken, or vegetarian lasagna. Each entree came with side starch, vegetable, salad,... More

We went to an event at the Cellar Door. The atmosphere in this basement restaurant was great, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We just weren't impressed with the food. I had the vegetable lasagna, which was decent, and my husband had crab cakes, which he said could have had more flavor. The drinks we had were good but... More

We went there to meet with a with a group of friends for a Christmas party. The place is cozy, though we had another group adjacent to ours, so it was a bit loud at times. It's a bit dark on the restaurant side with the lighting, so maybe you might need a lighter or flashlight to read the menu.... More

Great food, quaint atmosphere, and excellent service. The multiple times I've been here, I've never been disappointed with the different things I've ordered. They have a great happy hour, and they often have live music on the weekends which is a plus.

My husband & I decided to eat at the Cellar Door before a concert. We had a great time! Lacey (sp?), our server, was very knowledgeable & helpful. The goat cheese fritters were amazing!! As was the house-made bread pudding; yum! The menu provided a lot of options. We also tried the mussels (small but tasty), the mahi mahi with... More
