We had a wonderful brunch at jo jo’s in Frederick. They had done up the interior really well for the holidays -very tasteful and festive! The food that we ordered was good but because we asked for extra plates, there was a delay and when we finally got to the food it was no longer hot. I really appreciated the donut holes that we got with the coffee.

This was a nice place to come for brunch. Overall, the food was tasty. I had the Caesar salad with salmon and cream of crab soup. My friends got the chicken and waffles which they said was good. The coconut cake was okay - extremely sweet - a bit too much for me. I’m not sure if I’ll go back because there are so many options downtown but I wouldn’t discourage anyone from going either.

The restaurant is lovely, the waitress was great. The food and drinks were so-so. The crab soup, the cream was split, looked lumpy, and tasted a bit sour/off. The shrimp and grits weren’t very flavorful. Some of the cocktails weren’t very good. But the truffle fries, ramen bowl, and donut holes were pretty good. I’d try again during happy hour instead of Sunday brunch.

Waiter was great, he had a good command of the menu and good suggestions. Crab soup was , good texture but a little bland on flavor...could not taste the Old Bay that was supposed to be present. Pulled Pork & Grits was fantastic. Definitely going back!

We had a lovely meal. We split the Thai salad, which was yummy- fresh and with a limey bite that was just right. I ordered the Mahi-Mahi special which was so full of flavor. bacon on fish - who knew it would be so good! Hubby had the mushroom pasta which he loved. Definitely ample servings. Our waiter Ben was attentive and available when we needed him but didn’t hover. It was a little loud for us at first because of a loud table but when they left it was just right. Will definitely be coming back on our next visit to Frederick!

We went on a Sunday and really liked their brunch menu!
It s available till 4:00 which was great since we were traveling. A couple Benedict’s to choose from. A great selection of beers on tap! My flight was awesome including a pale ale made just for this establishment by Flying Dog
We had a very friendly and attentive server who gave us directions to Monocacy Battlefield and a couple other tips about the area!

My dinner companion enjoyed his regular burger. Not so with my black bean quinoa burger. Patty was quite tasteless, mushy texture, and disappointing. It's a popular restaurant, I think my particular experience was just not up to par.

So worth waiting to eat at JoJo’s! (Closed Mondays & Tuesdays)
You will not be disappointed; everything my friend and I chose was delicious. The goat cheese salad with beets— very yummy and so was the veggie Thai dish with Jasmine rice. The lemon bar desert was amazingly fresh and different. You should eat there! It’s one of the best restaurants Frederick has to offer.

Lamb lollipops were outstanding! The chicken smothered in crab was fabulous! Avacado wedges were delicious! We’ve been to many 5 star restaurants all over the country and afar and I must say this is top 5 of all the ones we’ve been to ( as far as food prepared and the taste ). Only critique I could possibly say , would be to maybe drizzle a little mushroom sauce on top of the rice on my wife’s entree which was the salmon. Again, the rice was great, just a little bland. Needed a little something as there was so much going on with every dish we had. I lightly recommend dining there as we will be back the next time we come through there. Thanks for capping off our 4 day getaway with a memorable dinner.

We’d been there a few months earlier fir lunch and really enjoyed it. We found dinner to be inconsistent. Two of our three meals were “meh” but luckily, our guest enjoyed her halibut special. I’ll stick to basics and lunch from now on.
