The brew and burger deal is amazing and that burger was to die for. Staff very professional with the social distancing and mask wearing. Wonderful experience sitting outside.

It was outstanding. It’s, quite frankly, always outstanding. We’re very particular about dining out - if it isn’t the whole package (good food, good service, good ambience, good value) then we don’t go - but this is a place we come to again and again.

This would have been a lot better except for the music choice. The patio was pleasant, nicely socially distanced, and it was a beautiful night. The music choice was a sharp contrast to the rest of the ambiance. There were screeching guitar solos and just odd obtrusive songs that really took away from the enjoyment of the meal in a peaceful setting.

We had patio reservation and the table was ready when we arrived early. Even on a warm evening the patio was shaded and comfortable. The food and service was excellent and we would recommend the S'mores Chocolate Mousse.

Overall very pleased and highly recommend. Seated quickly, outdoor seating was properly spaced and noise was low. Food was very good and service matched the food. Too expensive for a normal dinner for me but nice for a special occasion.

As always, another fine meal at Monocacy Crossing! I had the marinated hanger steak with shoe string potatoes and an arugula salad. The steak was cooked to perfection. 2 people in our party had the pasta bolognese, yummmmm! Thank you Monocacy for a wonderful evening!!

Monocacy Crossing is our Go-To for drinks and dinner. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The food is always excellent with a variety of price points. The patio, the deck, and high top bar tables offer a relaxing, fun vibe. I recommend this restaurant to everyone. And I also recommend the Cosmo and the Deviled Eggs stuffed with Crab!!

My friend & I had the pork tenderloin,and we both loved it. So much food, I took 2 slices home. I loved the scallop potatoes. The staff did everything that they were suppose to do in these difficult times. The wine was excellent!

Went here for dinner on Father's day. Our party of 4 was seated promptly and all of our food was delicious and appealing. My husband and I agreed that we didn't remember when we'd had a better meal. We'll be back!

great place to sit outside on a nice afternoon. Service is attentive, and food is consistently good.

My only criticism is that some of the severs were not wearing their face masks correctly and had their noses uncovered.

Food was great. Service was v good. They even made a custom omelette for me!!
The only major complaint I have is that NONE of the staff was wearing gloves!! I'm not sure what sanitation precautions were they taking. Nothing obvious.

We came here for Father’s Day Brunch. Slow service all around. Server was not knowledgeable about the menu. She was slow to bring drinks & refresh them, didn’t clear the table of dirty appetizer plates until we paid the bill. Heavy rich food that tasted only mediocre- not worth the $$$. Very old fashioned building, lacking charm and in desperate need of a makeover.

Monocracy Crossing has always been our special events place. Since I moved to Frederick 4 years ago, i have been here for every birthday. This weekend it was my husband’s birthday. Really missed going out to dinner during the pandemic but was a little nervous about going out. Made reservations for inside seating and we wore masks until we were seated. The tables were spread apart and all the servers wore masks. The waitress was very cordial but didn’t hover and kept her distance. The food was still amazing. Husband had hanger steak and I have filet mignon. They were both cooked perfect. Too full for desert but took there coconut cake home. Highly recommend.

The food was fantastic. We had flank steak cooked perfectly. The hush puppy appetizer was so tasty. With such flavors, I only wish they had such choices on the kids menu ( my 9 year old was disappointed with bland butter noodles).

I took my brother & his family to Monacacy Crossing for a late lunch and it was the first time they'd eaten here. They all loved it - the food was fabulous, service excellent and dessert was the bomb!!!
