I love the selection of beer, and the food is really top notch. Gator Tail is my favorite. they always have bison and venison as well.

We stopped into the brewing company for a weekday lunch. The menus is extensive and strives to have something for everyone in your group. There were several appetizers that sounded appealing, as well as many of the entrees and salads. I went for a classic hamburger on the pretzel roll served with the house chips. Very tasty burger, my only... More

I stopped by for a quick order and was disappointed with the quality of the food. I order a grilled chicken sandwich, which is tough to mess up. The sandwich had no accompaniments so this lonely sandwich sat on the plate all alone. I asked if anything came with it and he said no but I could order a side.... More

We are in town for a lacrosse tournament in the Columbia area and made a point to search the area for something uniquely local. The Ellicott City area is super cool! Like going back in time with the shops and restaurants on Main St. We read about the Brewing Company and it looked like a good place to try. First... More

Food is not great, but the beer is AWESOME! We don't like IPA, but enjoy a winter bach and mai bock. Ellicott Mills Brewing creates some great German Beer. Food is standard and soaks up the beer, but nothing I'd return for on it's own.

My company held a small gathering of some of our closest clients for a networking/thank you. The Brew Master was not available for the tour but a manager stepped in and did a decent job. We then all tried a few different beers and chose a complementary pour with a souvenir glass. Over all nice experience. If you are in... More

The bartender was not personable and did not seem to care about the work that he was doing - or maybe just my colleague and I. It's a decent venue, but nothing about it screams "I must come back."

We were told to go to Ellicott City while we were in the area for a wedding, so we stopped in here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The menu was very diverse, had Elk, Crab Cakes (of course it's Maryland), Alligator, and other more traditional items. My son in law had the elk said it was very good, a... More

My wife and I stopped here her a late lunch, early dinner. My wife ordered the Crab & Lobster Salad and I ordered the Bison Burger. The food was delicious and the IPA was refreshing. Our server, Batman, was very attentive. Donald Trump was on one of the TV's. I do not suggest talking politics here.

We recently stopped for dinner. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat. Service was above average. The dinners were fairly priced and nice size portions. Great assortment of choices as well. Not just a burger and brew place! The shrimp and crab pasta was amazing.
