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.

I go to the PE every week for our trivia game. This is probably the closest thing to a neighborhood bar that old Ellicott City has (the small plaque out front says a restaurant/bar has been on the site since the 1850s). The food is better than most bars and given the small kitchen, it has a pretty decent selection... More

Met a friend for lunch at The Phoenix last week. Had not eaten there in a few weeks. I was pleased to see it unchanged. Great food/ funky atmosphere: perfect local haunt. I had salad and shared fries with my friend. Wonderful. Can not wait to go back again. The lunch wait support is slow (one man show) when busy... More

Hands down, our favorite place to eat in historic Ellicott City. My husband loves the extensive import, and micro beer selection. I love the black and blue burger, the crab soup, and the portabello mushroom burger. My husband loves their fish and chips. Plus they have great fries.
