A warm welcome on very cold Monday in Frederick. The bar was busy and the restaurant pretty full of couples on dates. Food is outstanding and the wine list is interesting including nice French choices at reasonable price points. Dessert was limited in choice but well done.

Promptly seated based on reserved time. Wait staff was very busy as restaurant was full, but server and service was very good and courteous.

Food was excellent and reasonably priced.

restraunt had no heat, waitress took off her mask and leaned toward us when she spokcoffee was cols food was cold and the bisuits were hard and dry,had made a reservation to sit at the bar hostesses seamed confused and did no seat us at the bar even though there were emp[ty seats at the bar,micro greens were slimy,, no salt or pepper at the table, no whipped cream or powered sugar on pancakes and the bacon tasted like s__t ,waiter cleaning tables wiped seats with some dirty rag then wiped the tabletop with the same dirty rag yuck! nasty!
Very disappointed and $3.50 for cold coffee? $52 for breakfast and no booze just pancake and eggs

The patio with all the sides closed is not an open patio. I want to keep using the patio but it needs more air movement

Passing through Frederick & stopped off to eat. Food was good but probably won’t go back. Service was slow, there was a hair in my food & the restaurant didn’t offer to take anything off the check for it.

The food was very tasty--recommend the meatloaf and the biscuts. The drinks were great too! Our server tended to be a little slow--we asked for extra plates after for the appetizer, and they didn't come until after we finished eating it. We also asked for salt for the entree, and that never came, so we got it ourselves.

The onion rings were very good but the oyster po'boy wasn't very good at all. The bun was too big, too much bread and it was hard and dry. They need to leave the mussels off, they don't add anything to the sandwich plus there needs to be more oysters in the sandwich. Definitely wouldn't recommend the sandwich.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday at Showroom. We koved the open design and all of the windows. My wife loved the Shrimp and Grits and I had the Bryan's burger and a appetizer of chicken pot pie fritters that I enjoyed immensely. Nella was our server and she was excellent and attentive throughout our time there and offered several suggestions about the menu. My wife also noticed the large amount of gluten free and vegetarian options available on the menu.

Definitely will be back. The duck fat fries and the spicy aioli were delicious. I got the harvest salad and my husband got the wedge both were very good. I got the Nashville hot chicken sandwich. It was very good and crispy. It was not quite “Nashville hot” if you have had the pleasure of trying an actual Nashville hot chicken, but still good. My husband got the meatloaf and was very happy with it. Shared a brownie milkshake with rum and it was divine!!

Fried chicken salmon very good. Fries were fine but nothing special. Mushroom risotto was more like creamy rice with mushrooms on top... not as mushroomy-tasty as I was hoping for.
Staff was lovely. Enjoyed the evening.

First time visiting the Showroom and found the service and wait staff to be excellent and atmosphere was very nice for outdoor sitting. It was a bit of a windy day, but they had heaters above us to help with that. The food was good, I had ordered the Shrimp and Grits, and it was not quite what I expected or what I've had in the past at other restaurants. Not sure I would order this again. My friends enjoyed what they had ordered, wedge salad with Salmon and the Chicken and waffles. We may give the Showroom another chance.

Truly I'm so saddened that the quality and caliber of the food here has fallen so low. I LOVED dining here. Every bite of every dish was amazing. Good ingredients thoughtful preparation just very good simple food. Yesterday I was served food that I literally spit back out. My husband was served a plate of refried beans with a couple of corn chips and two eggs. We ask sure left off all of the salsa which would've made the meal an actual dish instead of a plate of beans and a couple chips. Credit to the manager for getting me a second plate of food, however this too was disappointing as my eggs were supposed to be over easy we're over hard, very hard. Even the fried chicken and the onion rings consistently come out under seasoned old standbys that were reliably delicious. Even simple mashed potatoes are I now consistently overly greasy and over salted. I'm so sad to see this restaurant has gone this direction, during the pandemic I religiously checked the website every three days because I was pining for the fried chicken and hot sauce. I give up. I keep going back hoping for some redeeming dish to make it all better but no the lady 4 visits have been underwhelming. I realize the pandemic has made it challenging for all businesses. However it's challenging for everyone to spend their hard-earned money in times like these and food that is not worth the money or the drive.
Best of luck!

Ate here for the first time the other week for my dad's birthday. My dad ordered the Biscuits and Gravy and I ordered the Eggs Any Style with crispy bacon and added a side of home fries. The biscuits and gravy arrived cold and my crispy bacon was not so crispy. The eggs and home fries were cooked perfectly and tasted good. I ate half the bacon since the other half wasn't cooked enough for me. They did recook the biscuits and gravy and my dad indicated it was good. Service was decent. Not sure we'll go back.

It was a fantastic experience to have a casual but really upscale dining experience. We were visiting Frederick and dined at Bryan Voltaggio’s Volt restaurant many years ago. To discover Showroom was as great an experience just more casual. Excellent staff who provided welcoming and genuine service making our dining experience an event we want to repeat. The Chicken Pot Pie Fritters and White Bean Chili apps were fabulous-flavor abounds. We had the Lamb Steak burger and the Bryan’s burger along with Duck Fat Fries. Only issue was no room for dessert or a Milkshake.

The cost isn’t worth it. $13 for a chicken sandwich made with chicken thighs? You have to purchase fries separate. There were tons of flies in the restaurant .

We’re new to Frederick and wanted to treat ourselves to breakfast our. We were so happy to find Showroom. We sat outside and had one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had. My pancakes were light and fluffy, the blueberry compote just the right balance of sweet and tart. My husband had the omelette with andouille sausage and it had a great kick! The home fries were so good, I wanted to take his whole plate, lol! They were extremely busy, but the whole team managed to keep pace. Bravo! Run, don’t walk.
