Visit this restaurant several times a year. Great craft brews. Good food with some different than the usual offered at this restaurant along with the basics. Upstairs seating lacks atmosphere.

This is a good brewpub. The food was prepared well (have been here several times) but the fare is straightforward pub food. They always have a good selection of beers they have made, including some seasonals that can be creative. They have a growler program if you want to take some home. This is a small brewpub, so you won't... More

An interesting menu and good beer highlight this quaint brew pub in historic Ellicott City. Service could have been a bit better, but it wasn't the waitress's fault. She had too many customers for an appparent lunch rush. Would definitely travel there again!

They have the best Old Bay wings around! Friends recommended we meet there just based on that and we were not disappointed. It is a small place and was somewhat noisy but it leans toward being a sports bar and that should be expected. Our friends used to live in NC and used to live here. When they came to... More

The service was uncoordinated and took forever. The staff wasn't rude, but weren't friendly either. The food was good, but small portions for the price. The beer was excellent, but cost $6.50-$7.00 per beer.

Stopped in on a mini road trip south. The bartender was super nice and helpful. Ended up walking around Ellicott city in search of a sweater.

speedy service at a packed house in a busy town. 3 bocks to choose from too. Lovely time! We sat in the bar. Upstairs got more and more packed by families with little kiddies. Glad I picked the bar!

Went here with my wife for dinner and was thoroughly impressed. Loved the food, service was great and the ambiance of the historic building was amazing.
