This picturesque setting makes for memorable family meals, wedding receptions and anniversary parties. But if you simply want a good view coupled with some high-class fare---even a burger---the inn should be part of your regular dining-out forays. Yes, it’s a bit pricy, but the revamped menu with its emphasis on casual American fare makes this a fine-dining destination. Lunchtime includes a burger with apple wood-smoked bacon, the crab cake BLT, smoked turkey Cobb salad, and---for a bit of hominess---meatloaf. Dinnertime yields heartier entrées, many with a Latino touch, including grilled ancho-citrus rubbed hanger steak and cumin-and-coriander dusted tuna loin. The lavish brunch offering will satisfy even the fussiest eater, with such choices as waffles, pancakes, poached chicken salad, omelets, breakfast meats, a carving station, and a host of cakes and tarts.
We have eaten at the Comus twice in the past two months, and it was great. We had a truly amazing Chicken Tamale entree, wrapped elegantly in a corn husk basket, but also in a banana leaf inside, with a fabulous chimichurri like sauce, that ranked with the best we've ever eaten. It was authentic and alone is worth a visit The service was fine, too, and the Maitre d' was charming. Then we went back for a Friday Happy Hour, and the young musicians - singing jazz and motown music - were great, made us (and everybody else!) dance, and the bar menu was fine, too, with good choices of finger foods and really affordable prices. Someone must have a beef with somebody to be posting smack about this place - it's a treat. This is my wife's favorite place, and we will be regulars!
I've heard mixed reviews of Comus, many from a few years ago when it re-opened, and knowing its a bit pricey I was more a little hesitant to spend a lot of money on a meal only to be left displeased, but I live very close to the restaurant and really dislike having to go into Frederick or Bethesda for a good meal...a colleague finally convinced me to head there one night for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the stuffiness of the "old Comus" is gone, other diners seemed to be dressed quite casually, and the prices were very reasonable...either I had been very misinformed or some big changes had happened in the past few years (I spoke with the host while on my way out the door and discovered it was the latter, they have changed just about everything right down to the chef). My meal, scallops with potatoes, lardons and grapes, was absolutely wonderful, they have an impressive wine list and a very friendly staff. I will certainly be returning, and I will recommend those friends of mine who didn't enjoy it the first time give it another shot.
