Ellicott Mills Brewing Company

Nestled in the heart of Historic Ellicott City, Ellicott Mills Brewing Co. offers the Finest Food & the Finest Beer in one of the most beautiful historic districts in the state of Maryland.
Brewing is a time honored art form. Our aim is simple: to craft a clean and smooth tasting draught using the most authentic methods and ingredients available from around the globe.
Ellicott Mills Brewing Co. is much more than a brewery though, we are a dining experience. The executive chef/owner combines American Grill and an eclectic cuisine with a European accent.
With the combination of the Finest Food & the Finest Beer, we have established the East Coast's premiere restaurant-brewery. Online reservations are not allowed for bar seating, thanks.

"We enjoyed the atmosphere and the beer selection, but the food just didn't satisfy us. The flavors were fine but portions small (maybe we've grown accustomed to taking leftovers home) and only allowed for one side item. Of course, extras were available at extra charge. My daughter loved the burger but she only had about 10 french fries on the side. I had the half rack of ribs, which were small and not very meaty. I think there's potential here if they didn't leave us still hungry."

"We used to really enjoy going to Ellicott Mills Brewing Company because of their beer and food selection. We began visiting less frequently after one of our guests had found a sizable piece of glass in their food. Our guest noticed the glass before chewing or swallowing, so they were fine. The staff discounted out bill and gave us some coupons to use in the future - although we obviously would have preferred to be comped for the entire meal (seeing as how badly the situation COULD have resulted), we were okay with the result. Their daily specials seems to stay pretty much the same most of the time and I would say the food is good, but not necessarily great. If you ever visit when they have their Lobster Roll special - GET IT. It was definitely worth giving them another shot."

"Good food, reasonable prices, and very good service in an historic building in historic Ellicott City. We went the Saturday before Valentine's Day for early dinner and were seated in the upper level which seemed a little more quieter than the bar area on the lower level. Nice beer selection, a good place to go if you just want to hang out and have a couple of beers and maybe some appetizers. I ordered wienershcnitzel and that was all that came out on the plate, the cost of the entree didn't include any sides...they were available for an additional charge per item."

"The food is just plain bad. The Caribbean chicken was just chicken with neon orange sauce and the rice pilaf was just beige rice. I paid $18 for a plate with just chicken and rice on it, no veggies, no garnish, nothing. I could've made this at home for $4. My wife's $20+ filet mignon was the fattiest piece of meat I've ever seen and it was still bleeding. Then the beers were flat and without much flavor. Maybe the taps needed a cleaning. I dunno. But the meal and all really wasn't worth the price. At least we got to spend a nice evening in historic Ellicott City. I should have heeded the advice of the other reviewers. Lesson learned."

"The only good part of the meal were the homemade potato chips. The bratwurst sausage tasted like it had been too long in the refrigerator, the venison sausage was greasy, the red cabbage was too vinegary, and, while the elk burger itself was ok, it was overpriced for its size and the plain ol' hamburger bun, the top which was knocked to the ground before serving and quickly replaced with a cool, under-grilled one, did the elk burger a disservice. Five years in Germany spoiled me to how German food ought to taste. There are too many other restaurants more deserving of my patronage and money."

"Our first time at this restaurant and what an excellent choice. The service was good and professional. My steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly and the crab cake was delicious; great taste with very little, if any, filling. My husband ordered the rack of ribs that were so good and fall off the bone tender, said they were the best ribs he has had in a long time.
We have been telling all our friends about our great dining experience at your restaurant.
Don't fire the cook."

"Brought my husband here for Fathers' day, a few menu items peaked my interest, like the Cajun alligator sampler, the crab hush puppies (which was a special). The Cajun alligator was incredibly salty and had a bitter taste, the sauce tasted burned honestly. The hushpuppies, fries, chicken tenders all very dark but I was assured by the server it was cooked just right. The main course, Salmon imperial was deep fried and dry. Wasn't expecting it to be deep fried at all. Over all I was very underwhelmed and dissatisfied with the food here. We paid a lot of money for the quality of food we were served. Should have just went with a burger and beer."

"Wish I'd have known they were having a group painting event going on in the dining room, the same room I was seated in with my guests for a birthday dinner. It's was noisy and very disruptive, we couldn't hear each other and just wasn't pleasant. When we asked how long it would be going on, we were told it was almost over...half way through the meal the crowd starting breaking up. Food was alright but probably would have tasted better if the evening had began differently."

"We stopped in for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The ambiance was lively but not overwhelming. The house salad with Japanese Ginger dressing was fresh and tasty. The blackened tuna sandwich was ok, but unusually thin and flat--as though they cut the tuna into half its normal thickness. It was flavorful, however, to make up for the lack of girth. The homemade Old Bay chips were fine, but lacked the anticipated Old Bay seasoning. Overall, a good enough lunch with good service and ambiance."

"It was my first visit and I was very disappointed. We started with pretzels with crab dip and it tasted and looked like paste with no crab flavor. The mozzarella sticks looked and tasted like something you bought in a grocery store. I did not like the fact that every little addition or change was 50 cents or a dollar or more. They charged for coleslaw instead of chips, cheese, mushrooms, French fries or anything. A $9.00 burger and not a very big one quickly becomes $15. For a bar with ordinary food, the portions were small and expensive.
I will not be going back.
