First visit to Monocacy Crossing. Read very good reviews in the past. We were greeted by Matthew who confirmed our reservation and promptly seated us on the patio. Our waitress, Laura, came right out to our table and said you’re here for a birthday. She offered us a complementary glass of wine to celebrate. Laura was an excellent waitress, very attentive but not overbearing like some can be. Laura ensured our food selections were brought out on time and served at peak temperature. The food was excellently prepared. The deviled egg with crab was delightful. We also ordered the hanger steak and the Shrimp and scallops. But were cooked and served perfectly.
If you decide to go be sure to make a reservation as the restaurant fills very quickly at dinner time.
We will definitely be returning soon.
Our server was FABULOUS - I think her name was Alexa. Enthusiastic and offering ideas. We requested a drink that couldn't be made because they did not have one of the ingredients and she found a similar alternative for us that was so inviting and delicious other tables requested it. She offered meal alternatives as well.
The food is imaginative and delicious. I love to cook so it takes a lot to impress me, but it does every time!
We love the new outdoor seating. Much more comfortable than the old.
We really enjoyed our evening. Seems every time we go, it just keeps getting better.
We were also grateful for this restaurant's energetic and kind carry out service during the height of COVID.
Very glad this restaurant is so close to our home!
Good was scrumptious and the waitress was spectacular!!!
The food and drink are very good! This restaurant has very good professional wait staff.
We have been eating at Monocacy Crossing since 2002. This was our first time sitting down to eat inside since February 2020. If anything, it was better than ever! Always an enjoyable experience with experted prepared and served meals.
Service was great. Thank you.
Lunch on their patio was delightful. The service was fine, and the desserts were fabulous. The salads were underwhelming, however, and the entrees were only okay. For the high prices, the food should have been outstanding. Still, we enjoyed the experience overall.
Out home away from home never disappoints. The food was excellent, the service even better
We love MC. Our dinner on the patio was delicious. The best part was our server. I believe her name was Megan (not 100% positive). She was sweet, accommodating, answered all our questions (and we had several). She gave us plenty of time but yet was attentive.
You guys have the most personable servers! We will be there often!!
We had a reservation for outdoor dining and it started raining. They had no inside tables available. We were outside and stayed since they had umbrellas. But the umbrella was on the side of the table, only covering 2 people of a table for 4. Rain dripped onto people and the table. There were no heaters. There is no excuse for them to have outdoor dining service and umbrellas that do not fit the tables properly. The food was tasty until it got wet from the rain that dripped down the umbrella into the food. After dinner we had to go find our waitress to get the check. Disappointing!
Good food and Christine was exceptionally attentive! A truly fun night!
Excellent menu, superb food. Had the mussels and steak salad. The service is fabulous. Everyone was so nice and everyone helped each other. Loved the experience. Definitely a favorite among my friends as well!
Wonderful food, great service. Specials were great.
Great food, great atmosphere on the patio. Definitely recommend the bolognese and coconut pound cake.
Loved it and will be back
Every item we had was amazing. Drinks were heavy handed but not over the top where we couldn't enjoy it. Great spot for me to take my clients after house shopping.
Wonderful meal. Hope they will have outside heaters or enclosed space as weather gets colder. Excellent service and meal. Lovely evening. Thank you!!
A hidden gem near Frederick MD! Great food and wonderful service. Outdoor patio really nice!
My favorite restaurant
Great people great food and a v approachable wine list
Was very good. Will definitely go back again
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.
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.
