Place was packed and a bit loud. Hard to find a parking spot as well. The drinks were well made and delicious. The bread, appetizer (whiskey duck nachos), and entrees (seafood risotto special and Cajun shrimp) were amazing. Overall a great meal, definitely a special occasion place!

Can’t beat outdoor dining on a beautiful summer night. Food was excellent! Had to have the crispy deviled egg with crab as an appetizer and the Parmesan seafood risotto with scallops and shrimp was lovely. The rice was not the main feature, so the seafood and broccoli just shined - really nice presentation.

Monocracy did not disappoint again, took my cousin and his wife from New York and had a wonderful early dinner. Deviled eggs were unique and great plus the ability to get half dishes was excellent.

The waitress was a bit rude when we asked her about splitting the check. She informed us we should have told her in advance. We should have but her delivery of the matter was uncalled for.

Flavorful meal was nicely paced even though it was a busy evening. The Meatball and Polenta appetizer was unforgettable.

I'ave been here several times and the food is delicious. The noise level was a bit high and the service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry. I would definitely recommend this nice restaurant to a friend.

This is one of our favorite places! We like the varied and often unusual menu items, from snacks and appetizers through the main dishes. I stay with my traditional comfort foods, and she tries new things that are always a hit. We brought my parents, who liked it so much they brought us back for Sunday brunch two days later.

We were celebrating our first anniversary and we were given a quiet table as requested. Our waitress was extremely helpful in assisting us through the menu selections. The food arrived very timely and was delicious as usual, from the tomato and prosciutto salad to the shrimp and scallops entree and the beef medallions ordered by my husband. When it was time for dessert we were hesitating as we were pretty full at that point but our waitress noted that since it was our anniversary we were entitled to a complimentary puff pastry dessert. It was delicious, perfect for sharing and hit the spot.
This is one of my favorite places for special occasion dining and looking forward to the next visit!

We always enjoy the food there. It is consistently excellent. The building has been spruced up since we were there the last time. I wish that is were closer to where we live - 40 miles away.

Disappointing..food was over salted and over cooked. Appetizer of deviled eggs was very good as were the desserts. Not a good value. Bar area is extremely loud. Service was good.

Another great meal and great service at the best restaurant in Frederick. I would like to suggest that a new handcrafted cocktail be added to the menu. “Katie’s Stoli Cosmo” is too good to be kept to myself! Definitely going back for more 🍸🍸🍸

Have always enjoyed Monocacy Crossing. However, on this Friday evening, the food was all very salty and the wait staff very unattentive. It was at least 20 minutes after our food arrived that we could finally get the attention of our waitress to let her know some of the food was too salty to eat. She said that was the chef's way of cooking. Never have I been here that I had to return food, but tonight we all did. Even the appetizer bacon, which was said to be sweet, was too peopery and salty to finish. I'll be back again since I really enjoy this restaurant, but will be on guard.

This restaurant has a beautiful location down a winding road. The interior is simple and informal; however the menu is quite metropolitan, varied, and interesting. We all enjoyed our delicious fried deviled eggs appetizer and our various entrees (buttermilk chicken and one of the specials: seared tuna). Great prices too. Wonderful value for a great evening. We will definitely return when the opportunity arises.
