    Lovely, relaxing Sunday afternoon. It was a delight to sit on the patio and spend a late afternoon with my daughter. The overhead sun canopies provided shade. They are high enough above the seating to allow a sense of openness and a full view of the garden area that creates a cozy feel. Service was wonderful. Everyone we interacted with were very pleasant, starting with the hostess who checked us in for our reservation . They all appeared to really enjoy being there. The menu is creative and has many offerings , so along with daily specials, it was easy for my daughter and I ( with very different palates ) to find items that we really enjoyed. We certainly will be making another visit soon.

    My wife and I had a nice, relaxed brunch. The reuben had the most tebder corned beef I can remember, and the sandwich was perfectly grilled. My wife's poached eggs were terrific. And the service was just right

    The food was great, excellent chef (whom I believe is the owner). Service was prompt and efficient, and we were never having to look for our server if we needed something! Try the coconut pound cake desert; you will go back for that alone!!

    Outdoor seating is very pleasant and nicely arranged. Food was a very good deal, in fact we were surprised at such reasonable prices. Summer wait staff very smart and friendly and patient while we decided from all the magnificent choices. To top it off the cheese tray was straight out of a Michelin level offering with bruleed gorganzola!

    My wife and I have had several meals at Monocracy Crossing. Every one was excellent. Last night I had the beef medallions and my wife had a mixed seafood dish. They gave me a steak knife, but I could have cut the meat with my fork. Our server, Candace, was very pleasant and we enjoyed talking with her. We’ll defend be back.

    Lovely venue for outdoor seating. Some noise from traffic on the road. Special appetizer of chicken with mango salsa and plantain chips was outstanding. Burger was average, fries were excellent. vegetarian risotto was tasty, small portion. Peanut butter cheesecake and blueberry upside down cake desserts were very good. Service was somewhat slow and inattentive. Overall, nice venue, good food, we would probably go back.

    Great food in an atmosphere that is quite and country. Best foods that I can recall ever eating were: The deviled eggs, the scollops, the shellfish stew and especially the special pork chop....The flavors are beyond compare and so unique, had my wife and I constantly proclaiming just how good they were..... Laura was the consummate server....extremely professional with spot on recommendations....she even took time to listen to the drivel coming from two old timers. Food was so good I even sent a $60 tip to the folks preparing it, just to say thanks.....a shout out to the hostess (I didn't catch her name) who found us a new table when we requested one Overall it is a really GOOD experiencing the dishes here.....one of our favorite places.

    Monocacy crossing never disappoints. Don’t wait until the last minute to get reserve your outdoor table. Mussels are not to be missed and the sirloin salad with goat cheese can’t be beat. Great wine list as well.

    Not as good as usual. The green beans in particular were undercooked and somewhat tasteless (and I like green beans). The steak was very good and the sockeye salmon very good. Disappointed that we could not eat outdoors even though tables were available. According to the online reservation, we could not reserve outdoor seating. It seems that you have to call to make a reservation for outdoor seating; it cannot be done through Open table.

    Eating at Monocacy Crossing was a great way to spend our anniversary night. Our service was outstanding, with courses well timed. We had shrimp scampi and mussel appetizers - both were delicious and spiced just right. We both ordered the beef medallions, which were cooked perfectly, accompanied by tasty sides of smashed red skin potatoes and green beans. Excellent Crème Brulèe desserts made for a perfect ending. We'll be back!

    Our server was polite, professional and yet, very friendly. The dishes we ordered were not very warm, but they were delicious. We haven’t been there for several years, but we will be back very soon. PS- Their patio dining is very nice and the noise level out there is much lower than inside.
