I've driven by this restaurant hundreds of times and never considered eating there due to the way the outside looks - a little cut up. The parking lot is mostly gravel, I can't imagine trying to go in the winter with no pavement. The interior is dated as well. However, the food is really good. Our table had appetizers (arugula...

Was a bit skeptical when pulling up to this restaurant. From the outside, looks like a neighborhood bar. When we walked in, decor is a bit dated. Hunter green everything, wallpaper and oak tables and chairs. 1st bathroom was really old and torn up. 2nd one was a bit more updated and nicer. Waiter was extremely friendly. Menu was original...

My husband and I enjoyed our meal here very much. I ordered the hanger steak and he ordered the seafood bouillabaisse. My hanger steak was perfectly prepared as requested at medium rare and was delicious. My husband said that although he enjoyed his meal it was rather fatty meaning the butter addition. If I did have a complaint, it would... More

Six of us, four adults and two children, had dinner here on a Thursday night. The restaurant does not look like much from the outside and we were a bit skeptical, but the parking lot was full and the reviews were good, so we decided to give it a try. The interior was a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere is casual... More

Went to dinner with a group of three friends. The restaurant is a house tucked on the side of a winding road and it is warm and welcoming. There is an outdoor area to eat or have a drink and also an inside bar. The dining room makes you feel like you are in a friend's home. Our food was... More

On our way out of town for a long weekend; wanted a nice Friday lunch but didn't want to brave downtown Frederick. Monocacy Crossing fit the bill perfectly. We were able to sit outside; yes, there is traffic noise of course, but the leafy space absorbs it nicely. Service is terrific - when we hesitated on our beer selections, we... More

Monocacy Crossing offers a cozy, quaint atmosphere for a tasty meal just outside of the Frederick city limits. My first visit to the restaurant was a very good experience overall--service was timely and cheerful, the menu features some excellent options and daily specials, and the ambiance of the dining room was inviting. There's a small outdoor patio area that's perfect... More
