                                                          second time we have eaten here this past month; all outside; which I would highly suggest in the summertime vs inside; food and service were outstanding; the patio requires a reservation; the outside area at the back of the restaurant we were told by our server is on a first come first serve basis and on Thursday night there is entertainment (last night a guitar player/singer). our bill was $90+ before tip which included 2 top shelf cocktails, and 3 courses thereafter (salads, entre and dessert)

                                                          Nice place for lunch ... but you can only go on Friday!

                                                          We just love this place. Celebrated a birthday with a friend for lunch on a recent Friday. We had the scallops, quiche of the day and fish tacos (seared tuna this day) and everyone loved their food. Shared wonderful two desserts. Service was great. The place was buzzy when we arrived but quieted down as some of the early lunch crowd left.

                                                          Absolutely love everything about this restaurant! Sat outside in their garden last night and enjoyed delicious mussels and , Thai chili chicken bites for starters. I had the most wonderful salmon on top of a carrot purée. Other meals ordered, the newly added Mediterranean seafood stew over fresh papadella, shrimp and grits and the pork schnitzel. Everyone loved their meal. For dessert we shared the amazing coconut pound cake and truffle cake… wow what a lovely evening with gray friends and amazing food!!!

                                                          We enjoy Monocracy Crossing and go several times a year. The food is usually very good, and the wine menu is great for the area. I was disappointed that although seated inside, there were ants crawling around on the table. When pointed out to the waitress she underplayed it as if it was just normal. I would expect that to be addressed. Hopefully this problem can be quickly managed.

                                                          Our go-to restaurant for great food and service. Even on Mother's Day Eve the food was outstanding and the service by Rosa was attentive, but not intrusive. We shared the iceberg wedge, I had the fish special and my husband had the pork tenderloin and we shared their special poundcake for dessert. So yummy!! A great dinner to celebrate an early Mother's Day. Can't wait to go again!

                                                          The food is delicious and the service is very good, especially our waiter, who was willing to give suggestions and could describe dishes extremely well. The noise level was distractingly high for such a small venue, but we were busy enjoying our meals so it was not important. We will be back

                                                          The food quality is always great. Our Server Josephine was amazing! We recommend ordering the cinnamon rolls, simply the best we’ve ever had. Omelette of the day was amazing! The smoked ham and bean soup gave warmth to the sole on that rainy day. We will be back very soon.

                                                          We had the best time tonight. The lump crab topped fried deviled eggs are amazing. Another loved their beef medallions. But by far, the best thing was the service. Josie was phenomenal and made our night! Best service ever. Thank you for the stories and for putting up with us.

                                                          We had the luncheon fish tacos (seared tuna) and salmon over rice. They were wonderful. And the coconut pound cake was heaven. Highly recommend. We sat outside, so the noise level was a little greater because of the traffic on the road. But it was a beautiful, sunny day.

                                                          Food is always excellent however their service needs training given the food quality and price. When you ask a server for a recommendation or about a dish - they should be trained in how to respond to sell the food not tell you they haven’t been there for a week and don’t know.

                                                          Went to Monocacy Crossing for the first time last night. Delightful country inn, tables are spaced nicely and while not quiet, it is easy to have a nice dinner conversation. Started with a cocktail and a glass of wine with the house crusty bread. My wife had the grilled ceaser salad and I had the wedge salad. Both were fresh, crispy and well dressed. Note, these are pretty big salads and could easily be split between 2 people. My wife had the shrimp and Grits and I had the Pork Schnitzel with warm potato salad, both meals were great, with enough to take home for leftovers. Did not have dessert. Our waitress was professional, efficient and friendly. We will surely return to try other menu items as everything that passed our table looked great.
