It was lovely & delicious!
This was the second time my husband and I visited. This time was wonderful. We decided on Monocacy Crossing kind of last minute and were very glad we did. The front staff was very friendly, the wait staff were knowledgeable and efficient. The food was amazing; we both ate way too much and were pleasantly full.
We are from out of state and met a friend who lives in the area. It was a perfect meeting place. The food was over the top great and the service wonderful.
I reviewed this restaurant about 6 years ago. Nothing much has changed. The food is still outstanding, the service is excellent and the place still looks like it could use a refreshing. But it's more quaint than bad, won't distract me from enjoying an outstanding meal.
Monocacy Crossing is always a treat! Great restaurant tucked away from over-crowded franchises. It is always filled with customers, but yet never feels crowded. Such a treat to get true gourmet food, and the service is always quick and friendly. By far the best restaurant in the area, you will never regret going to Monocacy Crossing!
excellent restaurant for local MD menu with a historic ambiance. Away from the commercial areas on a country road next to the Monocacy river with plenty of parking and an outside deck. Highly recommend it !
We couldn't have picked a better place for our son's college graduation celebration. Everything from the service, to the main entrees, dessert and drinks (pineapple mojito) were all excellent. The restaurant was quiet enough to enjoy conversation, and also being able to reserve a table for a large party, especially on Mother's Day, was great. Would highly recommend.
We can always count on great food and great service at Monocacy Crossing .
Great wait staff, delicious entrees and desserts. Have recommended to family and friends. Never disappointed.
Love love love the Monocacy! Never disappointed with the food and drinks! Staff is incredible
So this will go down as an unique anniversary dinner but not necessarily in a good way. Our waitress, Kathy, was great. She was attentive and explained things on the menu without rushing us. However, the food was lacking for the price. My wife got the special which was lamb chops with root vegetable puree and asked them to be cooked per the recommendation of the chef. Well, the chops came out beyond well down and anyone that eats or cooks lamb chops knows they are to be cooked at least medium rare. She asked for them to be returned and cooked medium rare and it came back as medium well. She just gave up and ate the chops. As for my dish, I ordered the Veal and Pork Bolognese. It was good but too salty for me. I liked that they used fresh pasta but I couldn't eat too much of the dish. Dessert was good but they gave me regular coffee instead of decaf coffee which got my heart racing. Somehow they (back kitchen) brewed regular coffee in the decaf pot. Kathy was very apologetic but I ended my night not feeling well. So there were some hit and misses. I got recommendations from many people about this restaurant so I'm just going to chuck it up as a lost and not there finest hour.
Monocacy Crossing is a very good restaurant. The food is very tasty and not at all ordinary. Even down to the salad dressing they make it special. We shared a room with a large group which was a little noisy, but the atmosphere is friendly, the lady waiting our table came around occasionally just to see if we were doing well, and its a restaurant that all my friends love. They just opened their outside dining which was considerably more popular than the number of people who chose to eat inside. My friends and I always have a great time and since we sit and talk the pace of the restaurant is just right for us. The service is not slow, its just paced around a casual setting. I have never eaten there at night, but judging by the lunch selections, the dinners are probably spectacular.
Always the best in all categories, food, service, anbiance
The food and service were both outstanding. 7 of us all enjoyed our meals. The sausage in the omelet was yummy. The bacon was crisp and tasty. We enjoyed our coffee, tea, and conversation until the meals were all served hot. Would definitely go back!
As always, excellent food and service. Celebrated a B-day and dessert was on the house for the gust of honor.
Awesome food ,service aND atmosphere!!! Will definitely be back....highly recommend!
Amazing food as always. It was nice enough to sit out on the patio, they even have blankets for when the sun goes down and it gets a little chilly. Kim was great. Unfortunately we were in a rush but Kim was very accommodating. Thanks for an awesome dinner!
Had a great time celebrating birthday for a friend
A great night out for my wife and I. Very good service, everything we ate was delicious, and we are excited for our next visit. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great meal.
We came tonight for our anniversary as we do most years. Monocacy Crossing has never disappointed us.
The food is fantastic. I ordered the sea bass special and my date ordered the filet special. Both were delicious. We were there early on a Friday night so it wasn't crowded/loud yet.
I’ve had a coworker rave about this place and on Sunday my wife and I tried it. The food was very good and the service was on point. A little pricey but we’re going again before we relocate to another area
We had a great dinner here with a another couple. Everyone was very satisfied with the restaurant - from drinks to appetizers to entree to dessert. Service was great.
We will definitely be back!
Always enjoy are meals and the friendly service
What a great experience! We've been to Monocacy Crossing many times to meet up with friends for a good meal. This weekend we came on a beautiful day to enjoy the outdoor patio area. The restaurant was very busy but nevertheless service was very good and the food was exceptional. Our meals included a lamb shank special with beets and gnocchi, shrimp and scallops over tagliatelle pasta, and another special - veal and pork bolognese also over tagliatelle pasta. All were beautifully prepared. Interestingly, several dishes came with the option of 1/2 portions so I paired a half portion of the bolognese with a grilled romaine salad. Just perfect. For dessert we shared a chocolate bread pudding and the restaurant's very special coconut pound cake. All in all a magical evening!
I brought in a small cake for my boyfriends birthday and forgot candles. Our server put some in without me having to ask. Service and food is wonderful here
You must have the crispy deviled eggs. They are amazing.
Always amazing service and food. One of my guests ordered a special order meal that came off of the dinner menu even though we ate at lunch
Great service and just as good food. A great experience...
We have never had a bad meal at Monocacy Crossing. The staff is friendly and funny without being intrusive, the decor is a bit old fashioned but in a comforting way. Wines are delicious without being overpriced. And the best part is the food - always tasty! This particular night I had lamb that had been slow roasted and was falling off the bone. Delicious! The smashed red potatoes were crazy good as was the kale. You can't go wrong here. We've had fish, chicken, salads - all wonderfully prepared. And I dare you to walk out without eating a piece of their signature coconut pound cake!
good food - great service - nice quiet table - really enjoyed the pork temderloin
This is a great restaurant. We did have one table if people nearby, who were very loud and disruptive. I think the manager should have spoken to them, because it did affect those around them.
Overall , a good experience with great food
Food and service was great as always!
The service was excellent..food fantastic,treat you like family..My go to restaurant for lunch,dinner,a drink with appetizers on the patio...Try it..you will like it. Thanks Kelly H,Rosa,And Chef Rob..
The food is always amazing and the service spectacular
Overall fantastic experience. Impeccable service, food was absolutely delicious. Love the ricotta fingers!
Three of us had dinner on a Saturday evening. The wait staff was pleasant and accommodating. The cocktails were very good. Had a few special cocktails for St. Patricks Day. The food came to our table hot and at the same time. It was delicious as well. We enjoyed the quaint atmosphere and look forward to eating outside when weather permits. Good value for the money.
I’ve been there 3 times this week. So. Freaking good. Love the Cobb salad and add shrimp to it. The servers know me by name. 😳 shows how much I go there.
Great food and great service! It was a perfect lunch, except that they sat us next to an exit door and it was extremely cold.
Wait staff was very good, enjoyed our meal and had a very good time with our friends. Would definitely come again.
