We enjoyed lunch on a Saturday afternoon during Restaurant Week in Frederick. The food was excellent! The service was attentive and the ambiance was comfortable if a bit noisy.
Amazing food and amazing service! Get the tuna as your first course- it is phenomenal! And the chicken and dumplings were superb!
Very good service
Place was loud and hard to hold
Will be back!
We will remember this for a long time! We came here when it was Volt, and while many things have changed, the food is still absolutely remarkable. Highly recommend!!!
Excellent meal in a very well designed outdoor space. Service was top-notch.
Excellent food and service. Great outdoor patio and tent perfect for Covid dining.
This is my second time, both with friends and we sat under the tent. It's a reason we/I go there, for the moment.
The drinks and service are very good. The food is fine in presentation but uneven in taste. The appetizers were very good: duck breast pate and oysters, But both times, I've had the Sea Bass. While cooked as I specified, the chef needs to consider either an herb bath or a sauce that brings out the flavor. It was rather bland. Plus, it is overpriced. At $32, I could have bought half of a Sea Bass at the local organic food store I go to. Finally, I understand that there is a ramp to get into the building, but if a disabled person has to go from the outdoor area to the restroom, he/she is out of luck because of the steps and a very heavy door to get into the main area. Not good.
Awesome as always. Love to every time we go.
What an outstanding meal! Creative without being overdone. I had the tilapia with a side of collard greens with turkey neck and my husband had the pork belly with the cole slaw side. Both were literally just perfect. And the dessert - the chocolate mouse/flan is one we will remember forever. We made a reservation for a high top in the bar but wound up in the kitchen - fun but LOUD. Choose a dining room for a more intimate experience. BTW the COVID care was excellent. We felt safe.
O.K. service, food and atmosphere. Not worth the prices - absolutely nothing about this place WOW'd us. We were particularly disappointed in the short ribs. It was apparent that they were cooked fast and at a high temperature because they were so tough that we struggled to cut them, even with steak knives. Overall, a YAWN of a menu that tries to impress with things like "seafood tower" and sprinkling Old Bay on breadsticks and french fries.
Wonderful outdoor dining with heated lamps in a beautiful brick patio. Excellent service. The little gem salad was exquisite and plentiful. The halibut came on a delicious broth and the homemade warm rye bread was a winner! Thank you for a great experience!
All courses were great except for dessert. The cheesecake taste like it went bad.
Outstanding dinner at Thatcher and Rye...we were sad when Volt closed...but Thatcher and Rye has continued the outstanding food, service and recommendations! We were so thrilled with everything we ate and ventured out of our normal selections at the suggestions of our waitress and she made the best suggestions. Had the most awesome wine recommended! Highly recommend a visit! Support these local restaurants! Plenty of safety protocols and spacing - felt perfectly fine!
Spectacular! Wonderful service, delicious food. And the ambience is great. I would go again for sure. Don't forget to order the lasagna which is made with smoked brisket vs the usual ground beef.
Enjoyed a birthday celebration. Staff was wonderful and made it special!
It was good. Enjoyable. The cocktails were exceptional but everything else was good...not great.
Great service, delicious food, wonderful atmosphere!
We couldn’t believe that this was the old Volt restaurant!! Same owner and chef and we were truly not let down. We had eaten at Volt many times in the last and this new reformation of the restaurant is perfect for today’s lifestyle! Thanks so much for an amazing night filled with great conversations and equally fabulous food!!!
Wow a truly incredible meal
We were blown away
The scallops, uni rice, and striped bass were all on point for sure
We were lucky enough to get a table looking in to the kitchen
While the food tasted incredible, I was not prepared and did not like having to order three courses of food all at once because "that is what the chef wants". For me it made tgings feel rushed. Host crew did great with special accommodations that we needed.
Delicious food!! Lucky to have restaurant like this in Frederick!
We absolutely loved Thacher & Rye! The service was excellent - always there without being overbearing.
Great food and service.
This place is awesome! Me and my family always dine here all the time. All courses are absolutely delicious!
Overall a great meal. The 14 oz ribeye was lacking in quality I would expect from this restaurant. We will be back though.
Been wanting to try this place since it was Volt! Made reservations for Valentine’s weekend and I was impressed with the check-in process, spacing of tables for COViD, and the pace of our meal! Cocktails were on point as was each course! I ordered the 14oz strip steak medium and it was perfect. My wife ordered the chicken & dumplings which were great as well. We didn’t have room for dessert but can only imagine it’s wonderful.
Tip#1 Get the mashed potatoes - YUMMMMM!!!
Tip#2 Get the “Doctor’s Order” cocktail - delish!!
Food was excellent. Well plated,flavorful, and portions are a good size. Best upscale restaurant in Frederick in my opinion. Perfect for special occasions and date nights.
Excellent! This definitely should be a one or two star rated Michelin restaurant. It is an experience both “worth a stop and worth a detour.” Much better than a “Bib Gourmand” experience.
We had the burger, with fries, the corn bread, the spiced shrimp cocktail, and Virginia cured ham. Also the cheesecake (which was a miss, unfortunately).
We had a very enjoyable dinner. I loved the uni with the lobster claw. The courses were beautiful. Service was excellent. The drive from Washington DC was definitively worth it.
The food was good. I’d say showroom is better. Our waiter seemed rushed (at least with us vs watching him with other tables). The food was tasty but on the smaller portion side.
It was great. The food was really awesome and what I’d expect for the prices. The appetizer bread sticks were boring, would rather have fresh bread. I added that it was my wife’s birthday and even verified it when the restaurant called me to verify my reservation. She said there was complimentary “bubbly” or dessert if you don’t drink. No one said anything, nor did they offer that. I didn’t want to ruin the dinner and my wife had no idea anyway so I just let it go. I’m glad those were my only tiny issues and it’s still a 5 star. I’d want to know that if I was the owner though. We’ll be back definitely.
We had a great meal. Everything we ordered was very good. If you are dinning with someone who is not very adventurous with their dinner choices, you might want to review the menu online before going. Although our server informed us the menu changes very frequently, we didn't feel there was an abundance of choices. The price point is also on the higher side.
This was our second wonderful brunch at Thacher and Rye. The food was delicious, our server was fantastic, and we felt very comfortable eating in the covered patio.
Wonderful drinks and food. The service was delightful.
I can't tell you how happy I am that Brian Voltaggio decided to open a new restaurant in Frederick. He's such a treasure for such a small community to have!
The food was unbelievable!! Service was impeccable!! Atmosphere very romantic/cozy! My new favorite restaurant!It reminds me of the restaurant at the Inn at Little Washington with respects to the food quality.
The chef is a genius. Can’t wait to go again.
Never disappoints! We were there for my husbands birthday. The food, staff, environment were all top notch! Definitely recommend and plan on going back
We had a great time! The food and drinks were interesting and delicious. The music and atmosphere were lively. Service was well paced but besides that nothing special. A little pricey but we left satisfied. We would definitely dine here again.
Domingo was an amazing server, cocktails were outstanding, and the food was to die for...especially desserts. We tried all three! The outdoor patio was adorable - warm and inviting. I will be back.
This is the best food I’ve ever eaten. Just perfect.
