We have eaten at The Monocacy Crossing several times over the years for special occasions and are never disappointed. The restaurant is in an older quaint building, and the food is about as good as it gets in Frederick, Maryland. I always get the Filet Mignon topped with Garlic Cream with Shallot Mashed Potatoes. It's not cheap, $30 to be... More

A number of years ago after playing at Whiskey Creek Golf Course, we asked for a recommendation for a nearby restaurant. The pro shop recommended Monocacy Crossing. You don't usually find really good restaurants with a gravel parking lot, but we went in anyway, and got a huge surprise. It's still every bit as good as it was then and... More

On advice from friends and recommendations from Trip Advisor we decided to have a late lunch to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary at Monocacy Crossing. The lunch menu is a subset of the dinner menu and very varied American fare. In addition for lunch they had specialty sandwiches. I opted for the Seared Tuna Salad and my wife selected the pork...

From the moment we walked in to Monocacy Crossing, we were greeted with smiles and treated well. Our server, Katie, made a point of giving us a quiet table in the corner. She helped me select food that would accommodate my allergy. The wine list was extensive, but carried very few American wines. We both had a fabulous citrus dressed... More

Service was terrible. The server was friendly, but wasn't meant to be a server. Seemed they were never trained, just didn't get what they were supposed to be doing. The rest of the staff was not very friendly. The food was good but not as good as it used to be, and the patio was great. Thank goodness for the... More

I've been searching for months for a way to eat kale. I finally found it here! Our family's dinner had kale topped on two dishes, one served dipped in the deep fryer and the other sauteed. Both were outstanding. Prices were a bit higher than we expected; average entree was $26, with all salads and sides ala carte. The vegetarian... More

We enjoyed dinner outside. Even after a hot day, the area was cool enough and the service was fine. I have to agree with the plaudits that most reviewers have offered. The salad was basic but first rate. My pork with scalloped potatoes was also excellent, and my wife loved her steak. There is an appealing variety to the menu,... More

MC was once one of my 3 favorite restaurants in the Frederick area. However it has been on the decline over the last two years. An example would be their fried chicken. It was once wonderful, crispy, rivaling anyone's best down-home experience. At the last visit it was boneless pieces that looked and tasted like mass produced, processed chicken. Very... More

Had an excellent dining experience on a busy Mothers Day. This place is a few miles south of Frederick, so it is easy to forget with all the other choices around. Everyone in our party was pleased with their meals, crab cakes, quiche, steak and stuffed French toast.
