Food and service was outstanding! Went for my husband’s birthday. The whole family loved the food. Apps were unique and delicious- fried deviled eggs w crab meat, crawfish hush puppies. Main dishes were assortment of: swordfish, pork chops, ahi Tuna. Dessert was the coconut pound cake that was stellar

This was my first visit to Monacacy Crossing and I was very pleased. I had the loupdemere special and it was delicious. Light, not too much breading, outstanding. The jasmine rice was a little heavy and sticky and the vegetables were not seasoned at all. My wife had summer vegetables over pasta ribbons, and while she enjoyed it, she felt that it, too, was underseasoned. Frankly, a little salt and pepper would have made all the difference in the world. The service was friendly if slow, but it was a comfortable summer evening outdoors, so we didn't mind. All-in-all, I'll be back with pleasure - but I'll ask for the salt shaker when I go :)

Great food and wine list. We have always been so pleased with the friendliness, helpfulness and competence of all the staff. Of the 3 people who seemed to be helping with the table 2 were great. The main server was anything but. From basically throwing the water pitcher on the table with a “I’ll be back”, never checking back with any of us after the food was delivered to the table, to having to be asked 3 times to try to get our 2 split checks correct (which we told her about when we ordered), we finally have up with something close to correct for the 2 couples. We’ll go back but hopefully not with the same server.

We just love this place. Sat outside on the patio this past Friday for lunch and had a delightful time. The setting is lovely and there are plenty of umbrellas for shade. We had the scallops, quiche and seared tuna and all were great. And the service was too.

When we pulled up I wasn't sure what to expect from this place located in what appeared to be an old but very large house. However, the food here was spectacular and the service was top notch. Plenty of on site parking. Everything we had was great, the artichoke beignets, the rueben egg roll, the burger, the chicken breast - all great! Also, it was crowded but despite that the noise level was very reasonable.

Waited too long for service. Some of the food was good, but ordered a chicken sandwich and the meat was rubbery. Also came for brunch, since it is often recommended and was disappointed so much of the brunch menu was more lunch food and little breakfast options. Sat outside and traffic was very noisy. Not the experience I was expecting from this restaurant.

We truly welcomed excellent bread and butter when it arrived, entrees were delicious . Grumbles: although the crab dip was one of the best recently sampled the floppy pita was less than it deserved why not add carrots and celery to supple the necessary crunch!?
Steaks, dinner burger and pork tenderloin all delicious. Coffee good, raspberry almond torte very disappointing, tasted synthetic.
