Had the Gator appetizer and it was pretty good, but we found it too salty. The Wild Boar Goulash had very little meat in it but was flavorful. The Argentinian steak looked very thin but the Chimichurri sauce was delicious. The beer my friends had was a hit

Beer was fantastic! The menu had lots of odd things like boar and alligator, but wasnt as good as the beer!

When making this reservation, I had thought it would be a hip, historic brewery for happy hour with my fiends. Upon arrival it was found to be a run down, average restaurant. The menus were plastic and sticky, the food was fine (though nothing special) and the beer options were lack luster. Overall the experience was average but nothing special and I will likely not return.

We really enjoyed the beer selection. We had a flight and the beer was really good. The food was good as well. The bison burger was delicious. The calamari special was delicious as well.

A group of four, we all enjoyed the food. I particularly enjoyed the Jagers Schnitzel - pork chops were extremely tender, with a rich, tasty sauce. I had the beer sampler - generous portions of four craft draft beers.

Food was eh. We really love the place, and it has so much potential. We came in New Year’s Eve for dinner and the place was empty. They were out of some of the specials. And the waiter seemed to be in a big hurry. I’m not sure we will be back.

Ellicott Mills Brewing Company accomodated our party of 7. They had an extensive offering of specials. I ordered the BALT+more sandwich (bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and a crabcake on ciabatta) off the specials menu. It was fairly good, but the ciabatta made it a bit dry. My husband ordered the jambalaya -- one of Ellicott Mills Brewing Company's best dishes. He loved it.

We ordered the thai chili calamari from the specials menu -- it was excellent! The crab dip was also very good and it was served in a sourdough bread bowl. My mother ordered the scallops from the specials menu and said it was bland. My brother ordered the steak and crabcake and said it was average. Their beer selection was a good seasonal and traditional German selection.

Although I like the decor and our waiter was very nice, the food and beer were just okay. The prices were decent, but my mom ordered the Lemon Basil Shrimp & Scallop special (which was kind of pricey), and when it came out it tasted like nothing but salt and pepper had been used. We even asked the server if the kitchen forgot a lemon basil sauce on top, but they didn't. I was disappointed with the food overall. I might go back for a quick drink, but not to eat.

Our family had a very nice lunch. The beer was tasty and the food was inspired and delicious.
