We had pretty much forgotten about this place until my neighbor mentioned it, so my wife and I visited it for the first time in years. The place looks like it had a nice cleaning since our last visit and that is a good thing since I felt it was somewhat dingy previously. The interior reminds me of many places... More

My husband and I returned to the Trolley Stop after an absence of a few years and were delighted that the place hadn't changed at all. Same exposed brick (in place long before everyone went Brooklyn style,) same old photos, even looked like some of the same old customers enjoying a lunchtime debate at 'their' table. Great ambiance. The food... More

We stopped here for a bite to eat before venturing out on the 1-1/4 mile Trolley Line #9 trail which begins right next to this restaurant. There's several free parking spaces right outside in the front. If they are all taken, there's a much bigger lot right around the corner just to the north. A short walk across the bridge... More

Only two pedestrian beers on tap, so don't get your hopes up. I had a Guinness in a tiny bottle, sigh. Huge portions, reasonably priced lunch food in a quaint building that used to be the old trolley stop linking the railroad and Ellicott city with Catonsville, and I presume, baltimore. Everybody in our group of nine seemed happy with... More

I can't rate the food here because my husband and I were so appalled at how filthy this place was we only had an ice tea and left. The first table we were shown had something spilled allover the chair and on the floor. We asked for another table since the idiot who was seating us seemed to think a... More

My wife and I have been wanting to try this place for some time but just did not have the time. When we did finally visit, we went for dinner and enjoyed ourselves immensely. First off you are in an historic area in an historic building. The place is decorated with photos of the trolley that used to ply the... More

Went here with a few girlfriends (we've been here before). Love the ambiance and we had a reservation. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. I ordered the chicken Chesapeake and veggie of the day (green beans)--both were delicious!! Too full for dessert, but love this place.

Stopped in early afternoon for a anniversary dinner. Plenty of tables free, but sat at the bar to watch the O's game. We ordered our food, thinking we would each eat a half of the others sandwich.. The food was VERy good, plentiful and came out very quick!. Well, each of us was full after eating half, so it looks... More
