Cream of Crab Soup, Crab Cakes (HAD to be ALL crab... saw no filler) and fish and chips. We all were very happy... and the beer selection is superb... so try some of the brews out. We were there on a week-day for lunch and it was a very nice experience. Friendly and attentive waitress willing to answer our questions... More

Not on the wall. Recognition available for those who manage to try all the 99 brews selected for the challenge. More a pub/bar than a traditional restaurant, it couldn't be in a better location in downtown Ellicott City. Across the street downside is the B & O Historic Train Museum. On the opposite side of the main street is the... More

On our visit to Maryland, we spent the day in Old Town Ellicott City. I went on Trip Advisor to find a lunch place and Phoenix Emporium had some good reviews so we decided to check it out. Lunch was really yummy, the portions were a nice size, it was not over-priced, and the service was good. I got a... More

Good Beer, good vibes, good tunes. Went there with a buddy and grabbed a couple beers. They have an alright selection and some beers I haven't seen other places. The night we were there they had live music that was cool but not so loud that you couldn't still have good conversation.

This place is extremity tasty and had huge helpings. A local from the train museum recommended it. They have a bit of everything. Burgers, wraps, salads, and crab cakes. A few people have told me that when jimmy buffet plays in town this is the place he goes. Maybe I'll get lucky one day!

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

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 collection of bottled beer from all outposts... More
