Good german food and beer

They have a wide range of ontap german beers and traditional german foods! The ratskeller is a bit small and the food has smaller portions. Overall a good restaurant in ellicott city!

This is a truly great place. My wife and I ate here twice during our holiday get-away trip and everything we had was outstanding! Yes the ambiance is lovely, but that isn't what brings me back to a restaurant. It's the food, beer (and/or wine list) and the service. Our server was efficient and very knowledgeable about the beer and... More

It's average. The ambiance is good. Stick with pub food. Don't get crazy. Get beers and basics. Wings are good. Burger is decent. Basement bar is really fun. Bartender is a great guy. Very friendly. It's a bar in an awesome building. Just remember that!

Had lunch at this mostly authentic German brew house on 13 Dec 15. My six guest were all from out of town, all were able to find the location easily and all found free parking near by on a beautiful Sunday. Having been to Germany many times I found their in house brewed beers to be very close to what... More

Been here several times and always enjoyed the experience. The beer is tasty and a good variety. The food is tasty but may be a little over priced. The last visit I had the special, wild boar goulash which was very flavorful. My wife had the crab ,shrimp & macaroni combo, she loved it. Staff is friendly and attentive without... More

We had a really nice dinner here after my daughters graduation from college. 11 people and we trickled in because of weather and traffic. Our waitress managed the staggered arrivals well. Drink and appetizer orders were taken as people arrived and she rolled with the punches. Only down on the service was one forgotten wine refill. Not a real issue.... More

The Brewing Company is a great place to go whether you're in the mood for a full meal or something lighter. They have great burgers and salads as well as a wide selection of home brewed beers. The main dining room is located a rather steep flight of stairs so keep this in mind if you have any knee problems... More

If you are looking for a hot spot that offers a great selection of micro-brews, this bar has it. Bartender Tim has been there as long as we have been going, and can serve a dark Maibock with a great Guinness pour. I would also recommend the Dunkel. Sample a generous list of brews, assured none will disappoint the palate.

We showed for lunch. The drak craft beer was very good. It went well with the elk burger. The kitchen understood rare, fortunately since it is very lean, do not get it cooked past medium rare because I fear it would be too dry. At rare it was excellent. Pick up a copy of the tourist pamphlet across the street... More
