Dinner in Westminster, Md./Frederick, Md. area?

We are looking for a place to have a surprise birthday dinner(good food/moderate price) in The Westminster, or Frederick, Md. areas. About 15-20.00/person for a group of 8 people.

  1. Baugher's is the only place we've eaten in Westminster. Good down home cooking. Desserts are great. Makes its own ice cream. Has a farm stand.

      We love Baugher's--certainly great chow and well within your price range, but it's more of a country diner than a restaurant I'd use for an "event." The environment is fairly loud (lots of families with little kids, especially on the weekends). Maybe that will work for your group, but if it's strictly adults who want to talk without a lot of distraction, you may want to look elsewhere.

        But if they could get seated in the back room, it would be ok.

    2. If you have any beer lovers, Johannson's (spelling may be wrong) in Westminster is a nice combination of brewpub and fairly creative restaurant. Frederick has a surprising number of good places.

      You might also post/search on the Baltimore/DC board to get more recs, particularly for Frederick, given that it has far more potentially viable choices than Westminster.

      1. Another brewpub suggestion--Brewer's Alley in Frederick. The entrees would likely put this out of your price range, but if you stick to sandwiches, salads and the wood-fired pizzas, you'll be fine.
