The Trolley Stop is a requirement if you are hungry and near Ellicot City. Food is not only excellent but quantity is enormous. The BLT and the Italian Cold Cut sandwich were easily enough to share I cannot recommend this place high enough.

Food was overall disappointing. Not much flavor to the chicken sandwich and the over-sized baguette was tasteless. The marinara sauce for dipping mozzarella sticks had an odd taste. The crab dip was ok, but perhaps tasted good only because we were so hungry. The building...More

We stopped along the Patasco River which was what attracted the earlliest Ellicotts to set up business here - at a time very isolated from Baltimore. The earliest stone house was not far away, walking distance. We ate at the trolley stop because of historic...More

I would say that the Trolley Stop has average food, but it is often good old comfort food. I like going there for an old fashioned breakfast the most. It also has a bar. You can get a good grilled cheese sandwich there, too. It...More
