When people in Baltimore City learn that we live in Ellicott City, they ask us about the Phoenix Emporium. Apparently this a the Mecca for Pizza lovers who have never been to either Chicago or New York City. The truth be known, I like the Phoenix for their burgers. They have an awesome... read more

They have good food and most importantly, a great beer list. 100+ beers to chose from from all different states and country's. Also have a 99 beer list, once completed you get your name on a plaque on the wall, I've completed it twice.

Their food is fabulous (particularly anything with crab) and their waitstaff is skilled and friendly, but until they start cleaning with something less chokingly strong, we won't be back. We tried it several times, each time hoping the chemical smell would be better the next time, but once it was so bad that my daughter got ill from it, we... More

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 the place is small. Some... 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
