First Review by jmari

Good, if your vegan your getting tofu - Edit

This place is pretty good. I read some reviews saying that there are honey in the vegan options, which I think they are changing. I went and asked if their baked bbq beans were vegan and they checked with the chef, and they pointed out that they recently changed the recipe to exclude honey to make it vegan. Which is cool. They are also super sensitive and even list some foods as NOT vegan since it shares the deep fryer. I didn't care, so I ended up getting their vegetable tempura.

The food was good, but I was a little disappointed with the vegan menu. There were lots of different tastes, but everything was pretty much tofu. We were cool with this, but rules out most food for any no-soy vegans. But their tofu was well done, as it was very dense, and well flavored.

Staff was great, informative, and beautiful setting.

Pros: Yummy food, Local drinks and produce

Cons: Vegan items are tofu, Shared deep frier

Love the Orchard - Edit

Always delicious. This is our go-to place for lunch during the workweek. Love the stir fries, veggie sandwich, and of course the amazing veggie salad that comes with tofu and hummus. Excellent service, consistently fresh food.

Pros: Excellent food and service

Honey in Vegan Items - Edit

I loved the food and the service was excellent. But, about half their so-called vegan items have honey in them. I was very disappointed in that! Make sure to ask the waiter about every item that is labeled vegan that you might wish to order.

Pros: Service, Food, Location

Cons: Honey in vegan items, Not all veg

High Priced, Low Taste Vegetarian Food - Edit

I've eaten here a few times... The food is always expensive and lackluster, but it's one of the only restaurants in town with a lot of vegetarian options so I end up coming back every now and then hoping for a better value. Unfortunately, it seems to stay consistently bland.

Pros: Vegetarian Menu

Cons: Price, Value, Boring Food

Great for Veggies, Okay for Vegans - Edit

while they have a lot of vegetarian options they are somewhat lacking on the vegan choices. they do have a daily vegan soup and one vegan salad dressing (beware the tomato tamari dressing is NOT vegan). also, their tofu and the veggie tempura are fried in the same fryer as their fish so the "veggie salad" and "vegetable tempura" are not for strict vegans. also lacking on vegan wine choices - many are organic but not very many are vegan. great place for vegetarians and best option in Frederick for a sit-down restaurant for vegans.
