Just an incredible experience with the family! We were all adults though. Not a kid friendly atmosphere. Food is outstanding! Service outstanding’
As always everything was great!
We are frequent patrons of this restaurant. It never disappoints. The NY Strip and Pork Tenderloin are two of our favorites. The cocktails are delicious too!
This was our first ever visit. The food was just okay, certainly nothing special. For sure it was overpriced.
This is a very special restaurant. Its menu has outstanding quality and taste. Also, has a few signature items that are memorable---the egg and crab appetizer are "To Die For".
It is a 5 diamond/star venue. A very deserving rating of 5 stars/diamonds that is earned because the experience is outstanding!
Great new seasonal menu! Lots of choices for everyone. I had the evening special which were crab cakes and they were delicious!
We had a nice time. Hadn’t been there in quite awhile and was impressed with the remodel. Food was really good. Gave it 4 starts due to burger being very med rare when asked for medium. I understand chefs are different but I’d order med well if I get the burger or steak. Another lady I saw had sent her steak back. The crab dip was amazing. Drinks were good and service was good as well. I will be going back!
1St time at MC-was a little unsure when we first arrived! Food was excellent, attentive service!!!!
We love Monocacy Crossing so much that it's become a destination worth a drive out from DC. But we wish we lived closer and could join what appears to be a happy crowd of regulars around the bar that fills the entrance. It has everything we want in a restaurant: good service, an interesting wine list, and a competent and creative chef producing a diverse menu.
Food was excellent and good service. Only negative was noise level at lunchtime. Maybe it was just a noisy group group but there should be some noise reduction put in, especially since ceiling is so low.
Excellent service, beautiful interior, food was awesome - great Ruben, Grilled Romaine Salad, and Bacon Cheeseburger. Very nice location for a quiet business lunch!
Excellent food. Waitress seemed a bit overwhelmed but the other servers picked up her slack and dinner was wonderful
Had a reservation and arrived on time but still had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. Hostess sat us with no menus. Had to wait another 10 minutes for the waitress to come over. Very disappointing experience.
Went with a party of 4 and we all ordered a different entree. Each one of us said we ordered the best thing on the menu! Everything was amazing!
Food is always consistently delicious. They had a special appetizer that was a tuna poke bowl that I hope they add to their regular menu because it’s outstanding. My husband and I love this place!
Another wonderful meal at the best restaurant in Frederick. Tuna Poke, Steamed Asian buns, Filet Mignon topped with Crab and a perfect Cosmo served by the much missed Rebecca. So glad you are back 🤗
Food and service was enjoyed by all.
Enjoyed our 20th Anniversary there. Food was excellent and the service was great.
Excellent food - we have never been disappointed, and we have dined there several times.
I had asked for a cake I brought to be placed on our table prior to our arrival and was not disappointed. The food was delicious and their offering of half-portions is a fantastic way to order just enough food. I ordered the poke bowl for an appetizer. I only order fish once in a great while due to my apparent ability to taste something even slightly "fishy". Not sure how to describe it, but it tastes like old fish smells. The fish in this poke bowl was delicious and smelled great. Not a hint of the "fishiness" that normally turns me away from dishes like this.
I ordered a half portion of the mushroom risotto. It tasted delicious, but was not overfilling so when I finished I still had room for a slice of the cake we'd brought.
The waitress offered to cut the cake for us at no cost and we enjoyed that with a cup of coffee each.
Overall the experience was wonderful and we look forward to coming back soon.
This is one of our all-time favorites - the food has always been excellent and staff recommendations are always spot-on.
My husband and I went here for the first time for a special dinner. Starting with the hostess and ending with finishing our dinner, our experience was 5 star! Our server was very knowledgeable and made wonderful suggestions when asked about various dishes. This restaurant will definitely be on our “go to” places for a nice dinner out! Thank you for making our night perfect.
Made a reservation for a group of friends and they all thanked me for picking such a good place. The fish special was fantastic. The waitress was fantastic as well.
First time patrons. Food was VG. Steamed mussels were extraordinary! Wait staff excellent. Ambiance ok.
Great service both at the bar and our table. Excellent food recommendations from our server. Food was very good
I really wanted to like the food but it just wasn't good. The crab dip had a weird smoke flavor. I had a salad which was a plate of field greens with a few tomato slivers. The meatball was just ok but not really good. I also had avocado toast and it has very little flavor. Just an avocado on bread but no other flavors. It was more like diner food than fine dining. Outstanding service.
We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Service was great! Food was excellent!
We had such a great meal and experience at our first visit to this restaurant. Occasion was a landmark family celebration. Service was stellar and food fantastic. We enjoyed every dish we ordered, but the scallops with bacon vinegrette was the best ever and the coconut pound cake made us swoon. Every member of the staff genuinely wanted us to have a memorable evening. They delivered with courtesy and grace. Thank you!
I believe our server was farely new. I’m sure next time she will deserve 5 stars.
Birthday dinner - always delicious
This was our first visit to Monocacy Crossing and it definitely won’t be our last! Everything was delicious, scallops, filet and the signature warm desert!
As always, Monocacy is wonderful. Excellent food and service and a beautiful place to share a meal.
We had a party of 6 for a birthday celebration. The waitress was wonderful - she had great recommendations, and was very attentive. Food was outstanding. We can’t wait to come back again!
I thought the food was very good, and we were all happy with our meals. We were seated in a side room off in the corner, so I think it would have been a more enjoyable experience if we were in the main area. There is no kids menu and the regular menu is difficult to manage for kids. That would be the only thing I would change. If we brought our daughter again, I think I'd have to bring her own food.
Our meal was outstanding. I would definitely go back.
Yes, met there with friends for lunch and they have added to their favorites list.
A great meal in a comfortable setting. Recommend the short ribs and shrimp & scallops.
I hardly ever write reviews, but I have to now. My wife and I were looking forward to our first time eating at Monocacy Crossing, but it was a let-down. The food was gourmet and decent depth of flavor and presentation, but the service was terrible. After our food was brought out, we were never checked on. We paid with a $50 gift certificate, which was not picked up for 10 minutes even though our server was in the area and saw us put the payment in the folder. She continued to replace table cloths on some of the tables around us and seemingly prepare for a "shift change". Our bill was finally picked up, which was $49.04, but then the server came back and said, "Your gift card covered your bill" and then walked away. She did not offer to give us the card back with remaining money or say have a nice day. The light above us was flickering on and off the entire time as well. I am not a picky person but Monocacy Crossing did not live up to the reputation that my parent's gave it.
We have been going to Monocacy Crossing for years. The food is always good, the menu offers many options and there are always good specials. We especially enjoy sitting outside in the spring, summer and early fall. The employees are outstanding: friendly and provide excellent service.
Great Sunday brunch at reasonable prices with $10 off bottles of wine and champagne. Great outdoor patio seating in the warmer months. Good service. Will definitely return.
