Great food! It was a little far to go but well worth the drive.
Perfect place to celebrate my husband’s 51st birthday! Food was top notch and atmosphere was delightful. We will definitely be back!
Excellent server and overall experience
The outstanding food was not unmatched by our energetic and amiable server!! You cannot go wrong at Monica’s Crossing!!
We started coming here regularly for dinner in the spring. Since then, I’ve noticed a definite trend downward in the service level. I’m not sure if they just don’t have enough servers, or here are other management troubles, but something is going on. The last few times we dined here, we waited several minutes for our server to appear, and then at least 10-15 minutes just to get our drinks. Food took another 20-25 minutes. The quality of the food is still quite good, but the experience was diminished I felt.
It’s still a beautiful spot for dinner, just be prepared to wait for everything.
Outstanding as usual. We moved away and come back to visit friends and always make it a point to eat here. Fantastic food, fantastic service (Mathew). If you go you must have the coconut pound cake for desert.
Superb food with highly varied menu and excellent service. Only negative was high noise level which made conversation difficult.
First time visiting - great service and food - will definitely dine here again
This is one of my favorite go to restaurants for any occasion. Food, service and ambiance always rate top 10 score.
Maria was the best server! She's such a sweet person and was very attentive to us.
First time there. Great service. Very friendly. We were celebrating our anniversary. Will definitely come back.
Great food, drinks, dessert and waitress. Unfortunately annoying, very loud drunks at the bar.
Very surprised and excited about location. Very nice looking outdoor seating but unfortunately had not reserved a table early enough. Seating inside was comfortable with plenty of room. Although close to the bar that is frequented by local patrons on there regular Saturday night out. Atmosphere was more like a loud rowdy bar than a eloquent dining experience. But overall very nice place staff friendly and on point and food very good and very much worth the 2hr round trip.
Great experience from the time we walked in until we left. Hostess was friendly and seemed to be waiting for us to come in. Our server was fantastic and very knowledgeable and helpful with my celiac food needs. The food was amazing and we will certainly be back!
Always love going there! Brought new friends there on Sunday evening. Becca, our server last night and bartender for previous visits, is amazing! She is professional, an awesome server and bartender, always happy and smiling and a joy to see.
Food was excellent, service was great. We ate outside and it was a lovely setting.
Excelente food and service.
The menu is limited for a brunch.
My daughter and I had a lovely dinner in the outside dining area of Monocacy Crossing. The food was excellent and the service was great.
Sat at the bar and enjoyed an early dinner. Zack gave us excellent service and the food was delicious.
We have been fans of MC for years and brought another couple who had not been there for almost that long. After dinner, they thanked us for reawakening them to the beauty of the restaurant.
We sat outdoors on a gorgeous day. The patio had umbrellas but I moved 3-4 times to get out of the direct sun…no one noticed or offered to tilt an umbrella. Food was delicious…crispy egg app was amazing! All of us liked our lunch item too. They were busy and seemed like the one waitress was stretched but nothing serious was missed. Great place inside or out! Highly recommend.
Whenever we travel from Richmond to see our Maryland family, we always try to dine here. The scallops are DIVINE!!!
Those fried deviled eggs with lump crab meat and slaw is to die for!!!!
The food and service were excellent. The music was too loud & not the type you would like to hear while eating in such a high level restaurant. It would have been fine for a bar. Because the dining room is so close to the bar - that may have been the issue. Recommend moving the speakers away from the dining area or figure out a method to reduce bar music from overtaking the dining room.
Always the best. Such a hidden jewel. We love it here
The food is good, no matter what we order and the staff is always welcoming!
Met a friend for brunch and had a lovely time. Food was excellent, service was very attentive and friendly.
Had the BEST drinks, appetizer, dinner & dessert for a special dinner with my mom. Our waitress was so sweet. We will be back!!
We have been coming to Monocacy Crossing fir years! The food is amazing! Some favorites remain in the menu but there are wonderful specials. The crispy deviled eggs and pound cake are not to be missed. I like the selection of small plates that I can pair with a salad rather than a heavy meal. We were celebrating our 37th anniversary and we’ve had many anniversaries there1
It was not the first time we have eaten at Monacacy Crossing and it will certainly not be the last. As always the food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
Delicious food and amazing service!
Fantastic experience once again. Great good great service in a wonderful setting!! Thank you!
The food is very tasty and there are varied choices at different price points. The outside seating was extensive but we had a problem with ants at our first table and a bird pooped on my shoulder since the umbrellas weren't directly over the tables.
Consistently excellent food and friendly knowledge service our server Christine is personable, warm & welcoming and knowledgeable of menu and drinks.
Excellent food and stellar service! Our two person table was in a bit of an awkward space, but everything else was perfect.
Have eaten here several times and I always expect a little more than what you get at Monocacy Crossing. Food and service are decent, but not memorable. Always want to be wowed, just not.
Very nice outdoor area for evening dining. The Louisiana Shrimp dish was terrific, and the Salman dish did not disappoint. The greens salads were a bit too basic for my liking. I prefer some other garden veggies in my salad. Decaf coffee was rich and flavorful. Good experience. Will definitely be back.
Exceptional...wonderful service, above average food
One of my favorite restaurants, and will visit again as soon as I can.
Excellent as always 💕
