Great beer, food is ok

I come here for the beer, which is great and has a great selection. The menu has a great variety, and is hit or miss depending on what item you get (I have found to stick with red meats and stay away from the seafood. One of the problems I have is that since it is a brewery, the smell... read more

I loved the Dunkel beer I had here. Seriously awesome. Our food was just not as good. First of all, not many options are healthy at all. The bison burger I ordered was tasty, though. The old bay homemade potato chips sounded enticing but were rather typical. My wife's crab cake was just okay. The coconut shrimp appetizer was meh,... More

We had dinner here last night with another couple and enjoyed ourselves. The food was consistently good but looked like there was new staff that were getting used to the restaurant...the sign on the front door advertising Help Wanted was a give away. Our appy's of Soft Pretzel Sticks and Sweet Thai Calamari (night special) were really good....although they had... More

All of the beers were very good, to excellent. I chose a "Sausage Sampler" Several sausages were offered, and you could pick two. I went the venison and... More

Our food was tasteless. I had shrimp salad and it had no taste and my husband got the rock fish sandwich and it looked like fish sticks. I would not recommend this restaurant for good food.

A huge fan of this quaint pub and setting. Especially enjoy the Boomerang ale, fish and chips and peanut butter pie. Service is great and prices are good. By far the best place to eat or drink on Main Street Ellicott City.

It's the consensus of me and my mates that their food is good, but overpriced, their beer is mediocre, and their service is very good. EMBC is across the street for The Judges Bench which has a limited selection of reasonably priced finger food, an awesome selection of ales on tap andd in bottles, and see-if-you-can-catch-me service, Further east on...
