About the restaurant
It all began with a love story and a dream. Linwood, a chef, and Ellen, a reporter, met 36 years ago in a restaurant of course! They married and began to envision that someday they would open a restaurant of their own. The restaurant’s first business plan was written at their dining room table on an electric typewriter. In 1988 Linwoods opened its doors, and it has been a labour of love for more than thirty years.

Linwoods’ cuisine consists of the freshest ingredients, and inventive preparation. Our service is warm and attentive. We have developed a reputation for consistency an attention to detail. These qualities are key to our catering business as well. Our team has worked hard to connect to our community, and we value our customers. These values have been central to Ellen and Linwood’s vision, and we hope are felt by our customers each day.

About the restaurant
We have one major focus: the popular German street food - schnitzel. We also have wursts made by local German meat market legend, Binkert's (Rosedale, MD). Other partnerships include a Black Forest Ice Cream Sandwich by Scoop & Paddle (Clarksville, MD).

We use fresh meats and vegetables, never frozen. The pretzels are made by hand by an Army vet who learned to make pretzels in Germany after his service. The sauces are made from scratch. Our cocktail program features both popular and obscure German spirits. The wine program consists of small-production family-owned wineries in Germany and Austria. Beer offerings include a healthy diet of imported German beers and local breweries who make German-style brews.

Join us inside our cozy beer hall, outside on our biergarten, or for take out or delivery! Thanks for being a part of the #schnitzelgang.

To start, the food was very good as well as the service. The two issues were the beer and the Schnapps. I will start with the Bitburger on-tap beer. We ordered two glasses and then were informed the keg was out and it would take 2-3 hours to chill another keg. Sorry guys, that's unacceptable. Have a second keg chilled and ready to go or a jockey box chiller. Also, German Schnapps go in the freezer and are served chilled. Ice-chilling dilutes the Schnapps. Please take this review as constructive and in the spirit of making everyone's experience most excellent when they dine with you.

We had a reservation for 4 pm and, because it was so early, were immediately seated. Low, classical guitar music played in the background which enhanced the ambiance and dining experience. Our waitress was excellent and explained in detail every dish on the menu. We shared purple asparagus (with “stinky” cheese), a seasonal dish, for an appetizer (delicious), and the veal scallopini and Marseilles (seafood) main entrees with a glass of wine. The chef made an appearance to ask if we were enjoying our dinner (of course)! The prices were a little pricey, but you pay for what you get. This was our first time dining at the Eldridge Furnace Inn and look forward to returning.
