Our brunch was fantastic! We had never eaten their before, found it through open table on our way back from Harpers Ferry. This was such a delight and the service was great! All three of us would go back.

The chef is spot on with the flavor combinations and use of ingredients to enhance a dish.

My wife and I have eaten here since they first opened. We have attended special occasion events with both large and small groups over the years and have never had a bad experience. Tried a variety of offerings, both food and beverage, and always great!

Valentine’s Weekend ushered in icy roads and travel warnings, but we persevered and cautiously kept our wonderful dinner date for 2...so glad we did. It was a wonderful evening , across the board!
We can always count on a nice time at Monocacy Crossing!

Was a lovely dinner for our anniversary. The restaurant helped us celebrate with a complimentary shared dessert. The food was fresh and delish and the service was just attentive enough. Definitely recommend.

We had been there before and the food was delicious...however, this time around in our visit it seemed as though the food needed a bit more seasoning or maybe it was just the way the food needed to be and we were not prepared.
We wish our waitress was a bit more available and prompt...we had to make various requests and even had to reach out to others to get what we needed.
I hope next time the service is better and the food tastes as it did before.
thanks

I recently visited Monocacy Crossing for brunch with a friend and found it very relaxing. With the restaurant at 50% capacity it was very quiet and service was exceptional! I can't wait to go back!

We try to eat here at least once a week, not only to support local businesses, but because we love it! The food is always excellent and the people are terrific. We only eat outdoors since the pandemic, but even with the temperatures in the low 40s, we were still cozy with all the new heaters they have on the patio. I recommend bringing a blanket to put on the metal chairs, but definitely recommend you try it - especially if you are looking to dine outside and still have great food and nice ambience.

Had an amazing time. Stop by after a ski trip on the way back home.
So glad we found this amazing place! Food was amazing and on point, can compete with too of the line restaurants.
Menu had enough options in it and included specials too.
They follow COVID instructions very well and carefully.
Everything tasted fresh, server was very nice and accommodating, Sangria was super strong!!!

We heard they were considering to close so try to support this place even by doing take-out!

We sat on the patio for lunch. Food was amazing; my gluten-free friend had a huge GF menu to choose from. Our server Candace was attentive and lovely. It was refreshing to still be able to sit on a patio even in December!

The outdoor patio is beautiful. Lovely setting. Friendly staff, slow service. The simpler food is better. More complex dishes were oddly filled with ingredients not listed on the menu.
