Although the business is in an interesting and historic building and brews beer, I wouldn't eat anything except for typical pub grub. Have a burger and a beer and you'll be happy as long as your server remembers you're there. Unfortunately, we ordered 4 non-pub grub meals and all of us were disappointed...Poorly cooked and over priced. Stick with standard... More

The place is friendly. the service is good. The food is reasonable and tastes great. On Tuesday they have a Lobster special that I try not to miss. The rolls are good. I like their german potato salad. It is hard to go wrong. The beer is best in town. IT is not a a dress up place. Casual works... More

My husband and I went for Valentine's Day lunch here yesterday. It's a quaint little restaurant in the Ellicott City Main Street. First of all I was so happy to see Main Street restaurants up & running after the devastating July 2016 flooding. This place had an inviting rustic decor, a warm cozy place with bar and dining. We ordered... More

Decent grungy place for beer. They have a good selection of local brewed ale. Food however wasn't so good.

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
