Summer is racing along and that means its time for the highly anticipated summer edition of Frederick Restaurant Week from Monday, August 8 – Sunday, August 14, 2022.

Every single year, I find a handful of folks from around the DMV that haven’t participated in the annual festivities, but always mean to put it on their calendar. To be honest, up until a few years ago, I was guilty of missing it too (and kicking myself). So, I thought I’d round up my top 5 reasons why you shouldn’t miss Frederick’s Restaurant Week ever again and why locals and visitors both love it so much.

1. The Line-Up of 14 Incredible Frederick Restaurants

You may have heard that Downtown Frederick has a nice little foodie scene going on, but once you experience it, you realize just what all the fuss is about. Restaurant week, which also includes a few spots outside of Downtown, gives you the opportunity to try 14of them at their best with multi-course options! This is a great opportunity to celebrate these restaurants and Frederick's culinary scene. This is a great cross-section of what makes Frederick County a delicious place to eat.

The 2022 participating restaurants include: 

  • Black Hog BBQ
  • Brewer’s Alley
  • Bushwaller’s Irish Pub
  • Carriage House Inn
  • Cellar Door
  • Firestone’s Culinary Tavern
  • Isabella's
  • Il Porto
  • Magoo's
  • Mayta’s Peruvian Cuisine
  • Pistarro's 
  • Showroom
  • Thacher & Rye
  • The Wine Kitchen on the Creek

2. The Ridiculous Abundance of Menu Options

Want to do lunch with co-workers or take your sweetie out for a romantic dinner? During Frederick Restaurant Week, both lunch and dinner menus are available. Check out all the menus here!

3. Make it a bigger celebration

Since Frederick Restaurant Week was born many years ago, the restaurant scene has expanded and diversified. Alongside those restaurants have grown a thriving craft beverage scene. So before heading out to your Restaurant Week reservation, grab a seat at a local winery, brewery, or distillery and enjoy a local drink before diving into a delicious meal. 

4. The Instagrammable Foodie Moments

Speaking of the Chefs - be sure to tag all their creations on social with #FredRestWK and check out what everyone else in town is chowing down on. Be sure to use #VisitFrederick or #VisitFrederickMD as well!
