Our meals couldn’t have been better, highly recommended the bacon wrapped beef medallions. The outside heater was a nice touch on a cool evening! One of our favorite restaurants in Maryland!

This restaurant is a hidden gem between Urbana and Frederick. There is a wonderful outdoor patio with plenty of seating and heaters for those chilly evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the ahi tuna Mediterranean dish as my main course and the grilled romaine salad before hand. Our table sampled delicious deviled eggs with crab and the crostini with pear and blue cheese too. The cocktails was a lovely pour and the choice of white wine made for a perfect dinner. To full for dessert but they sure looked wonderful. I can’t wait to return and try other items.

A ‘Mother’s Day’ weekend gathering with 2 of my grown daughter’s and the family was spent on the Patio. It was delightful. We ended up with the rain clearing and cooler temperatures. It was absolutely delightful. Candace was our server. She was Soooo personable and friendly. She gave us fabulous service and demonstrated her great sense of humor, as we were all in a lighthearted mood. We each started by selecting a fun cocktail from a creative list. We selected three yummy appetizers: lightly crisp calamari, artichoke beignets, and beef wontons with a “ to die for” chili sauce. As the basket of homemade breads was passed around the table; it wasn’t long before only crumbs remained on the appetizer plates. Everyone selected something different from a varied list of Entre choices. As we finished our meals with nothing being Left on anyone’s plate, we still had get two orders of the sumptuous coconut poundcake. Every part of our dining experience was picture perfect.
As the season progresses and The weather becomes consistent, I highly recommend the appeal that Monocacy Crossing provides; particularly on their wonderful patio .

EVERYTHING was perfect. We will be back again soon to try all the things on the menu that we couldn’t this time. So many temptations to come back to! Zack’s lemon drop martini is perfection and the Kentucky derby day Mint Julep was fantastic! The sangria was very popular as well!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this restaurant!

Actually, the only reason I had a problem with the ambiance was that we were freezing. The temperature had dropped, and it was either raining or damp the entire time we were there. Despite that, we enjoyed the meal and will return, probably with friends, for dinner and probably brunch again.

I was impressed with the variety on their food and drink menus during the pandemic. Everything my party ordered was excellent. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable.

They made their COVID-19 policies very clear and provided three different seating options when making a reservation.
