Excellent food - we have never been disappointed, and we have dined there several times.
I had asked for a cake I brought to be placed on our table prior to our arrival and was not disappointed. The food was delicious and their offering of half-portions is a fantastic way to order just enough food. I ordered the poke bowl for an appetizer. I only order fish once in a great while due to my apparent ability to taste something even slightly "fishy". Not sure how to describe it, but it tastes like old fish smells. The fish in this poke bowl was delicious and smelled great. Not a hint of the "fishiness" that normally turns me away from dishes like this.
I ordered a half portion of the mushroom risotto. It tasted delicious, but was not overfilling so when I finished I still had room for a slice of the cake we'd brought.
The waitress offered to cut the cake for us at no cost and we enjoyed that with a cup of coffee each.
Overall the experience was wonderful and we look forward to coming back soon.
This is one of our all-time favorites - the food has always been excellent and staff recommendations are always spot-on.
My husband and I went here for the first time for a special dinner. Starting with the hostess and ending with finishing our dinner, our experience was 5 star! Our server was very knowledgeable and made wonderful suggestions when asked about various dishes. This restaurant will definitely be on our “go to” places for a nice dinner out! Thank you for making our night perfect.
Made a reservation for a group of friends and they all thanked me for picking such a good place. The fish special was fantastic. The waitress was fantastic as well.
First time patrons. Food was VG. Steamed mussels were extraordinary! Wait staff excellent. Ambiance ok.
Great service both at the bar and our table. Excellent food recommendations from our server. Food was very good
I really wanted to like the food but it just wasn't good. The crab dip had a weird smoke flavor. I had a salad which was a plate of field greens with a few tomato slivers. The meatball was just ok but not really good. I also had avocado toast and it has very little flavor. Just an avocado on bread but no other flavors. It was more like diner food than fine dining. Outstanding service.
We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Service was great! Food was excellent!
We had such a great meal and experience at our first visit to this restaurant. Occasion was a landmark family celebration. Service was stellar and food fantastic. We enjoyed every dish we ordered, but the scallops with bacon vinegrette was the best ever and the coconut pound cake made us swoon. Every member of the staff genuinely wanted us to have a memorable evening. They delivered with courtesy and grace. Thank you!
I believe our server was farely new. I’m sure next time she will deserve 5 stars.
Birthday dinner - always delicious
This was our first visit to Monocacy Crossing and it definitely won’t be our last! Everything was delicious, scallops, filet and the signature warm desert!
As always, Monocacy is wonderful. Excellent food and service and a beautiful place to share a meal.
We had a party of 6 for a birthday celebration. The waitress was wonderful - she had great recommendations, and was very attentive. Food was outstanding. We can’t wait to come back again!
I thought the food was very good, and we were all happy with our meals. We were seated in a side room off in the corner, so I think it would have been a more enjoyable experience if we were in the main area. There is no kids menu and the regular menu is difficult to manage for kids. That would be the only thing I would change. If we brought our daughter again, I think I'd have to bring her own food.
Our meal was outstanding. I would definitely go back.
Yes, met there with friends for lunch and they have added to their favorites list.
A great meal in a comfortable setting. Recommend the short ribs and shrimp & scallops.
I hardly ever write reviews, but I have to now. My wife and I were looking forward to our first time eating at Monocacy Crossing, but it was a let-down. The food was gourmet and decent depth of flavor and presentation, but the service was terrible. After our food was brought out, we were never checked on. We paid with a $50 gift certificate, which was not picked up for 10 minutes even though our server was in the area and saw us put the payment in the folder. She continued to replace table cloths on some of the tables around us and seemingly prepare for a "shift change". Our bill was finally picked up, which was $49.04, but then the server came back and said, "Your gift card covered your bill" and then walked away. She did not offer to give us the card back with remaining money or say have a nice day. The light above us was flickering on and off the entire time as well. I am not a picky person but Monocacy Crossing did not live up to the reputation that my parent's gave it.
We have been going to Monocacy Crossing for years. The food is always good, the menu offers many options and there are always good specials. We especially enjoy sitting outside in the spring, summer and early fall. The employees are outstanding: friendly and provide excellent service.
Great Sunday brunch at reasonable prices with $10 off bottles of wine and champagne. Great outdoor patio seating in the warmer months. Good service. Will definitely return.
The food service was very slow during this experience. We waited over 40 minutes for our food. The food was good, but took a long time.
I had the special filet with crab cake. the crab cake had way too much filler, and the filet was not firm like it should be.
There were 4 of us. 3 of the dinners were excellent. I had the sea bass. A bit slimy and was sick the next day. I should not have eaten it but didn’t think I would get bad food there. First time in twenty years.
Excellent food, service and experience at Monocacy Crossing. Scallops and shrimp with risotto was amazing as was the grilled hearts of romaine salad. The pork loin was also delicious.
Excellent service and the food never disappoints !
Very careful with my gluten free entree options.
What a pleasure to find this spot. Good, comforting food without being fussy. We ordered 3 different appetizers and three different entrees, each was delicious, simple and perfect for a rainy evening. I also love that the wine is 10 bucks off if you get the bottle.
This was our second time taking our family there and both times we had a wonderful time.
As always the service and meals ,
Drinks , everything was fantastic !
This was our second time here. I was hesitant to go because of the pricing. The staff and food is awesome. They are way overpriced for the amount of food you get. I had the crab cakes which taste wise were incredible, they were how ever very small (medium). For the price I paid I would have expected much larger crab cakes. Our waitress was awesome and very knowledgeable. My friend had a shrimp dish that was also expensive and the amount of shrimp was laughable. I do like the atmosphere and service but it seems like that is what you pay for there, not the food. I will not go back unless they adjust their prices or serving size.
Food was fabulous along with the service. Looking forward to our return.
We were a party of 11 and it seemed everyone's salmon was a bit under cooked. However it was delicious. One of the pregnant ladies sent hers back for the babies health in eating undercook fish. We all thought that if salmon is being served it should be ask how you would like it prepared. But overall everything was outstanding!!!
Early dinner after seeing a choral performance in the area. Our second visit to Monocacy Crossing. My wife enjoyed her beef medallions and especially her lemon drop martini. I had the crab cake special. Will come back for a third visit soon.
Great food and service
Great experience! We haven’t been here in years and decided to come back in. We had unbelievable service and the food was so delicious. It was super cozy and had a great vibe! We’ll be back soon.
We went to Monocacy Crossing to celebrate my wife’s birthday. It was our first time at the restaurant. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We enjoyed our visit. I thought it was a very good value. We will be back.
Food was wonderful. Perfect in every way. Service was impeccable. My only complaint was the noise level. Bar was crowded & very noisy. Acoustics in the restaurant was poor. Was hard to hear your friends at the table.
Always great service and food. Love sitting by the fireplace/stove in the cold weather.
