Simple and Right On!

These folks have won some of Maryland's biggest awards for brewing. The Marzen was smooth and just slightly sweet for a perfect combination. Not a problem if you like hoppy though, there is a flavor for you. For culinary taste they've got some things you can't generally find other places. The menu... read more

Although we are very close to downtown Ellicott City, the only place that we seem to ever return to is Ellicott Mills Brewing Company. If I were a beer drinker, it would even be a better place to visit. I recommend the pork chops. Not a dish you can easily find elsewhere.

This is an old Ellicott City beer brewery pub. Great selection of beer as well as other drinks. Outstanding food for any restaurant but unexpected in a beer pub. Good place to stop for a drink if you are visiting old Ellicott City. City parking is available just across the street.

Hadn't been here for years and found ourselves in EC for lunch today so decided to come in. We sat in the area by the bar. Immediately greeted by our server Carrie who was great. Answered any questions we had and made sure we had what we needed. Very friendly and professional. Now for the food - I had the... More

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... 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

We spent the day, in Old Ellicott City, and we're looking to have a few craft beers and some appetizers. We dined at the bar, for lunch. I ordered a beer flight. 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.
