The food is consistently good, menu is a bit limited for dinner. A good option for brunch or lunch.

Amazing as usual. The food is always delicious and the people friendly. We love coming here because it feels like home. I love the neighborhood vibe. We always see people we know and the owners give this place TLC and the personal touch. It means everything. Everything on the menu is top-notch. Order the Ned if you love a crisp tasty white Sav Blanc and the dirty martinis are my favorite anywhere!

thank you Rich and Kelly we love you -- Paul and Sue Hynes

The Maryland Crab Soup is absolutely outstanding. My bride delved into the Whisky Duck Nachos which she thoroughly enjoyed. Service was great and they had solid beers on tap.

Everyone in the place was super friendly, especially our server. Very welcoming! We love how it felt like coming home for a visit. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The crispy deviled egg appetizer is a MUST try. I could cut the bacon wrapped filet with my fork, and was apprehensive about trying it over the porcini bread pudding but, OMG! I’m a NEW fan of bread pudding. John’s Ancho rubbed grilled New York strip was exquisitely portrayed and even better to eat. We didn’t make it to dessert because we couldn’t stop eating our meals. Next time! I can’t say enough about the service - impeccable! Don’t miss out on this gem.

The food is always excellent as is the service. I was only a little disappointed with the wine glasses as they all had a lot of water spots on them. I just think that at a very nice restaurant, the glasses should be spotless. We've never had this issue in the past.

It is very nice that Monocacy has been able to extend outdoor seating with the cooler temperatures. The added heating devices are perfect. We’ve been eating there for over 10 years - good food, good service and good people.

I appreciate the Covid-19 safety precautions that Monocacy Crossing takes and the outside courtyard dining with the new heaters. It is the only restaurant we go to in Maryland where the food is always excellent, and I feel the tables are far enough apart.

Try the lemon martini, it is fantastic. I enjoyed the pumpkin spice martini which was enjoyable on a Fall evening. The beef medallions came with a good portion of mashed potatoes and green beans. My husband enjoyed his fresh tasting salmon which was better than the wild caught fish we normally get.

This restaurant is the best on the Frederick/Urbana area. I have visited this restaurant for years and I have never been disappointed. Beware, those Martinis are real killers !😊

The brunch overall was very good which is consistent with our past experiences at Monocacy Crossing. The server was attentive, but not overbearing. The food was excellent quality, if a touch expensive. And the road noise while sitting outside could be high, but that’s not something the restaurant had control over.

From the appetizers mussels and fried deviled eggs with crab. Yum to entrees : pork roast , hamburger with a fried egg and medallion beef tenderloin. Yum finally the puff pastry with ice cream and raspberry and chocolate sauce. Our party of five had a awesome experience and will return again. Thanks for making my husband and my birthday so great.

The meals were delicious. Salmon was cooked perfectly, moist and flaky. Short ribs were excellent. This was my first indoor restaurant meal since March, and they're doing a great job separating tables and keeping the density low. Would definitely return on my next trip to Frederick!

Kitchen is excellent and always reliable. Love the outdoor seating but the new heaters didn’t keep us from getting cold. Cushions for the chairs might help? It’s hard to get it perfect in these crazy times. We love Monacacy Grill!

Once again Monocracy Crossing was great. The hanger steak was made perfectly and is one of my favorites. My husband could not decide between the two pasta meals so they gave him a half portion of both. Both were very good. The service is always good. When we leave, we can’t wait to get back.
