My first visit in January 2021. Plenty of parking, quite location outside of Frederick. We really enjoyed our food. The customer service was great, will be back for sure.

We try to eat here at least once a week, not only to support local businesses, but because we love it! The food is always excellent and the people are terrific. We only eat outdoors since the pandemic, but even with the temperatures in the low 40s, we were still cozy with all the new heaters they have on the patio. I recommend bringing a blanket to put on the metal chairs, but definitely recommend you try it - especially if you are looking to dine outside and still have great food and nice ambience.

Had an amazing time. Stop by after a ski trip on the way back home.
So glad we found this amazing place! Food was amazing and on point, can compete with too of the line restaurants.
Menu had enough options in it and included specials too.
They follow COVID instructions very well and carefully.
Everything tasted fresh, server was very nice and accommodating, Sangria was super strong!!!

We heard they were considering to close so try to support this place even by doing take-out!

We sat on the patio for lunch. Food was amazing; my gluten-free friend had a huge GF menu to choose from. Our server Candace was attentive and lovely. It was refreshing to still be able to sit on a patio even in December!

The outdoor patio is beautiful. Lovely setting. Friendly staff, slow service. The simpler food is better. More complex dishes were oddly filled with ingredients not listed on the menu.

My wife and I have passed this place on multiple times and have never been able to stop until this past Sunday. Between the attentive staff and delicious food I can say Monocacy Crossing is now a permanent part of our ate night rotation!

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

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.
