Attended the midnight madness in old town Ellicott City and was great to see this restaurant busy and full of life again. After the flood, we weren't sure what would be open. We've eaten here many times in the past and always enjoyed our meals. Love the atmosphere. Service was great. Our waiter Jake was friendly, attentive and still gave... More

My wife had the vegetarian wrap along with cole slaw which was OK. Dressing on the side. A special for the day was Weinerschnitzel which I ordered with red cabbage and potato salad. The red cabbage was very good. The Weinerschnitzel and potato salad, in my opinion and familiarity with German food, left something to be desired. Typically Weinerschnitzel is... More

The best thing about the restaurant is the historic interior. The beer was good; we tried a couple but it would have been nice if they offered flights. They do have an unusual mix of food offerings.

Good lobster crab rolls and potato salad. I ordered the potato soup and they accidentally brought me the creamy lobster crab bisque. What a gelatinous gross soup. Some crab but not a lobster in sight. I also am confused how they could mix up the crab lobster bisque with potato soup?! Beers were good. Pricey food though. I wouldn't go... More

See Tim and tell him Alice Copper sent you, not kidding. Recommended, great ownership, very good beers, good atmosphere. I've been to the Ellicott Mills Brewing Co at least 15 times. Ellicott Mills Brewing Co recently reopened after the devastating flood in Ellicott City Maryland. While they were close another local brewing company allowed Ellicott Mills to produce a fine...

Home made beer, pub, and light restaurant. Recently reopened after devastating flood in old Ellicott City. Located in old interesting building with character. Local pub atmosphere. Good snacks. Definitely worth patronizing. Deserves your business as it amongst others in old Ellicott City is struggling back from a major set back.

We decided to go to historic Ellicott City and few restaurants were open. Easy to get a reservation here and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Service was ok, and drinks ok too. I wanted a dunkel and they offered, but had run out. How does a brew restaurant run out of a signature beer? Happy to... More

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
