Small but good food

This restaurant is right across the street from the B&O museum. It has a bar and a few tables along some storefront windows. The building is historic. Food is good here, and wait staff is friendly every time I visit. They have a good selection of beer. I would rate this place very good, except... read more

I met a friend here for lunch, mainly because she had a two-for-one coupon. The regular menu has the standard sandwiches and burgers. There is also an extensive menu of specials which I found more appealing. I tried the shrimp tacos. There were three to an order, with shrimp piled high on a double layer of soft corn tortillas. They... More

I can't believe I haven't written a review on this place. We have visited this place several times over the years and still enjoy the food and atmosphere. Right off you are met with a nice pub type of atmosphere in historic Ellicott City across from the B&O Railroad Museum and shops. If you are a railfan as I am,... More

We recently dined for lunch with a few friends and the Phoenix is located on a great corner on Main St, in Ellicot City. The building was previously used as a casket maker. It is a great pub, with hundred's of beer choices. You can even enter to have your name on a plaque if you try so many beers... More

I love the Phoenix! The food is always delicious (try their crab cakes. so good!) and the staff is friendly. It is a great little bar with lots of beer and great food. When my partner and I got married, we had our reception upstairs and the staff and crew helped to make our day wonderful. It's a bar, so... More

I really like this place overall, and a frequent patron. Kitchen: Open late!! Saturday & Sunday: DJs upstairs! And sometimes different events. Thursday & Sunday: Karaoke! Sunday: Industry night (50% off for people in the industry) And if you finish the beer list you get a discount every visit. ~~Beer: vast selection, and I have only heard great things about... More

We stopped in there on July 4th as we were sight seeing in Ellicott City. It was right after the lunch crowd and almost all the tables were either full or dirty. The staff said they would clear the table if we gave them a few minutes which we said wasn't a problem. After waiting less than five minutes, we... More

Stopped in this place late one night looking for something to eat. Wide selection of beers from all across the globe. Friendly staff, food cooked fresh.. Not the greatest but definitely worthy of the price considering the hour. Decent crowd... really enjoyed it. Be sure to make this a stop if you hit the Ellicott City Main Street area.
