I didn't think it was possible for Monocacy Crossing to get better. Tonight, they proved me wrong. Everything was phenomenal, from the roasted beet carpaccio appetizer to the grilled romaine salad, shrimp & grits entrée and coconut pound cake for dessert. The wine pairing was also outstanding. How do Rich and Kelley consistently produce such greatness? Thank you!

Drove by this place many times, until a friend recommended it. I figured it was just a local hang out. I was really surprised at the variety on the menu and how creative and good the food was. Really not a place to miss if you are in the area visiting the battlefield.

So I decided to make Easter dinner different this year. Instead of making more food than an army platoon can eat in a month, I suggested we as a family go out for dinner and let someone else cook a holiday meal for us. We chose this place thinking they would have good food, good service, and not be asked... More

Place looks small from the outside but has plenty of seating inside. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was well worth the price. Highly recommend

Met friends from DC here for a pleasant meal. Atmosphere was excellent and so was the service. Most of our entrees were very good although one member of our party had the scallop special and was a bit disappointed. Our overall experience was very good and we'd go back again.

My husband and I took a friend to lunch. We got there when we THOUGHT they opened (11:00), turns out they open a half hour later. As we turned to go sit in the car a man came out to tell us to come in and just wait at the bar. So very nice of him. Lunch was great, service... More

You can eat here and be extremely satisfied. It's such a relief to be in a place that isn't screaming with noise bouncing off the high ceilings! Parking is ample, bathrooms clean and very nice server..... the food was good, too. A couple of the dishes were just ok, but I think that was more because the diner expected something... More

Stopped in for a couple of drinks with my wife and son and daughter-in-law. The drinks were pretty generic but the biggest problem was the musty smell of the place. I would never eat there.

Went for my birthday, been a few years since we came here. Service is still great, the people are different but the attitude of making the visit the best is still there. We started with a special, crab dip appetizer. It came with plenty of Pita and the dip was full of crab meat and very rich as it should... More
