The service was very friendly and accommodating, but a bit slow, considering that it wasn’t very busy. The prices were reasonable, but the food was mediocre and not very well presented. It had gotten good reviews on the internet, but I would not go again.

Monocacy Crossing is a nice restaurant offering moderately price meals that are nicely prepared with great service. The staff is efficient and responsive to the customers' needs. The menu offers a good variety, and several menu selections offer half portions. I am already looking forward to my next visit.

Excellent food at a moderate price for lunch. Presentation is superb. But ambiance outdoors leaves much to be desired. With some trees and shrubbery, the restaurant could block the busy highway from the outdoor patio and make an outdoor lunch there even more memorable.

For a pleasant dining experience this is one of the best spots in the area. Always worth the drive for a substantial meal at a more than fair cost.

Monocacy Crossing, was an unexpected surprise. I was heading in that direction from Potomac and a friend told me I should take all the back roads, enjoy my convertible and stop for dinner. my friend told me that the first thing I should order is the pound cake because it was so good she wanted to make sure that I could reserve an order if they were running low. the weather was fabulous, ate outside, food was fabulous, staff was so friendly and made me feel like a welcome old friend. what a gem of a dining experience.

A little loud when we first sat down but they moved us upon request. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Not a particularly romantic place, but we were inside as it was just too warm to sit on the patio.

Becca was a fantastic, personable and attentive server. She had solid recommendations which did not fail us. We had an excellent meal except the hush puppies did not provide the heat it promised. Duck nachos were very good, though I think a different cheese would be better suited. Burger was amazing and the wagyu flank steak was cooked to perfection.

The staff is always super friendly and our server was awesome! They are never in a rush at least not to us, just great timing. Drinks and warm bread to start and just about the time we needed more food our order was there. Food was hot and delicious as it has been the other times we have been here. For a nice dinner with friends or a quiet brunch for 2 the atmosphere here is always perfect. This is always a great choice. Of course we will be back!

First time visit. There were 6 of us getting together. Our waitress was fabulous! I like that when you get a wine by the glass, she would come over to the table and refill it right from the bottle. I felt like I was dining in someone’s home.
The food was delicious, also lots of choices.
Homemade desserts were yummy!
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who will be in that area.
There was a nice casual outdoor patio that was full with patrons, also dining.
We will go backwards for sure.

Outdoor seating for a birthday celebration. Service was attentive, prompt and pleasant without hovering. Crab cakes were very fresh, with no filler and big lumps--delicious. Monocacy Crossing is a restaurant you can count on every time.

My wife and I live in Western Howard County and we have always enjoyed finding good restaurants towards Frederick. Monocacy Crossing was on my list of restaurants to try. I chose it when we were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary. I was able to point my wife to the menus on the web page. We both quickly found more things and we knew that we would enjoy on both the appetizers and entree menus and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent the portions were reasonable and the presentations were lovely.

Food and service were wonderful. Fernando provided excellent service and recommendations. We thought a thunderstorm was coming so we sat inside. (We love the patio). It was extremely loud inside that we could not hear one another. The inside could use a refresh in appearance. It is a little off putting to sit in drab eating much great good. Would rethink coming back if we had to have inside seating.

Great food. Pork tenderloin and beef medallions were on point. The waitress Sam was phenomenal and has huge potential to being a face the restaurant should be proud to have representing them. I would definitely recommend Sam as a waitress as her attention to detail and high level of service was a huge contributor to our great meal

The meals were tasty & very nicely presented. The soft shell crab sandwich, which was a special, was particularly good. The exterior of the restaurant was a little off-putting, but once we got inside, we were pleasantly surprised with how nice it was. Our server, Rebecca, was very friendly & helpful with our questions about the menu. She was also very attentive about being sure we had what we needed. She is a real asset to the restaurant.

The bartender found out we like Pinot Noir and promptly shared some of the Pinots he has recently come to love even though the restaurant doesn't carry them all - we walked out with great ideas! Dinner was fantastic - we ordered all over the menu and tried a bunch of the specials - very happy with the quality of the food and size of portions. Our waiter was friendly and played along with us. Just a great all-around experience.

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.
