Ellicott Mills Brewing Company
Located just south of Columbia, Ellicott Mills Brewing Company is a popular restaurant in Howard County. Offering a variety of dishes and drinks, it’s also one of the best places to grab brunch in Ellicott City.
The restaurant has a large selection of beers on tap and by the bottle, including several gluten-free options. They offer live music every Wednesday night at 8 pm! The staff is friendly and helpful – they will help you choose a beer or wine based on your taste preferences.
The menu includes everything from salads to burgers to macaroni & cheese! It’s easy to find something tasty no matter what kind of food you like eating most often (or least often). My favorite dish there so far has been their crab cake sandwich with avocado mayo and fries – I highly recommend trying this if ever decide to head over for your own meal!
Tino’s is the kind of place you could bring your family to and not feel self-conscious about it. It’s family-friendly, but also has a great wine list and menu that would make an adult feel at home. The atmosphere is casual, so even if you dress up (which I recommend) they won’t turn you away. They have an outdoor seating area that overlooks the Patuxent River as well as a more formal dining room inside where they serve breakfast all day long!
The Elkridge Furnace Inn
This historic property has been around since 1854, and the dining room is full of character. The restaurant serves up American fare with some Southern influences, so there’s something for everyone.
Dinner menus include steak and seafood options as well as favorites like crab cakes and macaroni and cheese. The Elkridge Furnace Inn also has a bar area that offers a full-service bar with beers on tap or by the bottle, wine by the glass or bottle plus beer flights in addition to standard cocktails like martinis and mojitos.
You’ll find all this goodness at prices ranging from $14-$29 per person during dinner hours. Reservations are recommended but not required. If you’d rather skip out on making reservations altogether then stop by any time between 11:45 am – 3 pm on weekdays for lunch specials priced at $9-$12 each including soups/salads/sandwiches/burgers – it’s impossible to go wrong!
