Tuesday is lobster night. Best deal in town. Currently their beer selection is limited to some commercial brands and a partnership with duclaw. This is due to the ellicott city flood. Still a great place abd I have been going there for over 15 years.

Great location down in Historic Ellicott City. The food is ok. Well done hamburger burnt, salads very small and servers do not return to refill drinks after your food is delivered.

Our presence was not even acknowledged! No visible readon, it was not busy and there appeared to be an adequate number of wait staff. What a disappointment.

We went to this restaurant because it was open. We asked to be seated upstairs because the main floor had a weird smell to it. The wait for food was a bit long given that it was not crowded. The food was ok, not great. We did not sample any beers, which may be what this restaurant is known for?... More

Went with a small group for an after work 'Happy hour". On arrival was greeted quickly and directed to the upstairs dining area. Waitress was a little bit grumpy and took the drink order. It seemed like it was an inconvenience for her. One order came in two glasses-Gin and tonic. She came back after leaving the drinks, it felt... More

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...
