For our rehearsal dinner, we had a hard time finding a restaurant in or near Frederick that would accommodate a large group. Monocacy Crossing was the perfect fit. It has a private room (no fee) for any size group, refined comfort food menu that appeals to everyone, very reasonable prices, a bar and patio area for guests that want to meet up after and hang out. The staff was great, you can choose a menu for your event and they just make everything very simple for you. It’s not right downtown in Frederick, but neither are the hotels so driving was inevitable for people. It has a large parking lot though, so it’s actually easier than trying to park downtown.
