History

Frederick Maryland Fine Dining In A Historical Atmosphere

These remarkable buildings, located in Ijamsville just outside of Frederick Maryland, were constructed in 1862 and occupied by six Welsh families who worked in the quarries.  The village of Ijamsville was settled in 1831 and hence became a booming mining town. In 1896, Dr. George H. Riggs founded a sanitarium here “for the care and treatment of Nervous and Mental Disease of Women.” In 1968, Guy Gabriel bought the property and turned it into Gabriel’s French Provincial Inn. He raised his family here as well as many of the produces and meats used in the restaurant. In December of 1998, the DeLawder family purchased the property, and in keeping with Mr. Gabriel’s tradition, are raising their family here and have returned Gabriel’s Inn to the fine dining establishment for which it was known.

Even more remarkable than the beautiful location and wonderful cuisine, this landmark has been in continuous operation as a fine dining establishment for forty years.

At Gabriel’s Inn, we take pride in preparing everything fresh and to order. If you have a special request that is not on our menu, our skilled chef will be happy to accommodate you. Please remember to call ahead if you would like a special dish prepared or for any of our call-ahead items (souflees, sweetbreads, and more).  We are committed to providing a relaxing and pleasurable dining experience where you will enjoy everything from the fine wine and exceptional fare to the consummate service and comfortable atmosphere.
