Manor Hill Tavern occupies the historic Taylor’s Row in Old Ellicott City. Our bar and dining areas feature original architectural elements such as exposed stone walls, barn doors, and vaulted ceilings. Local artwork hangs throughout the Tavern’s many rooms and a mural adorns a main wall, a nod to the eclectic and vibrant artistic community of Old Ellicott City. The result is a unique and memorable atmosphere unlike any other.

Our Head Chef strives to use seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible, including herbs and vegetables from our farm. Our distinctive menu is highlighted by a custom-built brick oven for neopolitan-style pizzas and more. We serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week, as well as brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

We proudly serve beers from Manor Hill Brewing, Howard County’s first farm brewery. Manor Hill beers are hand-made on our farm using original and unique recipes. The result is aromatic, hop forward farmhouse style beers.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Pizza I had is my favorite one.

Ate at Manor Hill Tavern on Valentine's day. Ordered a crab cake sandwich. It tasted fishy and appeared to be mass produced. Slow service.

My lamb chop and risotto was phenomenal, although it was a special on Valentine's Day. I was 100% completely happy with my entree, which our server recommended. The regular menu appears to be mostly salad, pizza and sandwiches, so I'm not sure how I would have felt about ordering off the regular menu.

My first visit there, not my husband's though. Bird is the word was delish, lots of yummy flavors piled high on a lightly toasted bun. Lots of recommendations to try it so we did. The fries came in their own cute little MHT brown bag, what an adorable presentation. I tried the bacon ones, what's not to love about bacon and my husband had the regular. We both enjoyed. I also had the mushroom broccoli cream soup, almost the last cup left. It was delish, hit the spot on a rainy evening dinner date. Our waiter was fabulous and attentive. We'll be back.

Delicious food, decent cocktails (could have been stronger but the sangria was perfect!) Wait staff was kind, smiling, and courteous. I wholly recommend making a reservation, as well as the mac-n-cheese :)

It was nice to find a good place Ellicott City. It is a great location and service was excellent. I gave 4 stars for the food because there was a lot of sweetness in even the savory dishes that I didn't care for. The fried green tomato tower didn't have any sweetness and I loved it. I would go back.

This was our second visit. Food was great overall. There was a hiccup with my husband’s order where the menu name didn’t match what he was served. Then it turned out what was on the menu didn’t exist. However the staff made it right very quickly and all was well. Definitely a place for a repeat visit.

DInner at Manor Hill was amazing. We started with a Margherita pizza and a State Fair funnel cake with crab dip to split with the group for appetizers. Both were outstanding. 5 of 6 of us got the fried chicken sandwich and it was to die for. Absolutely amazingly perfect sandwich! One person loved the pizza app so much she got a butternut squash pizza for dinner and loved it. Carson was our waiter and was excellent. He was fun and very attentive, even turned the music down for us when we asked. I 100% recommend Manor HIll Tavern.

First time dining here, and my husband & I were pleasantly surprised! Highly recommend the mac & cheese appetizer, the Little Havana sandwich, and the seafood chowder, which I believe was a special that evening. Food was fantastic, and our waiter was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back!

We took my son and daughter-in-law there on New Years evening. This is a favorite spot for them and our first time. It was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious, the wait staff attentive and ambiance lovely and cozy. I’ve also had other friends dine here who have spoken highly of it. It is very close to where we live so we definitely will be adding this to our favorites list.

This was a fun place to meet friends who live in Elicott City. After a three mile hike, we walked through the lovely old downtown and then headed for the Manor Hill Tavern. It did not disappoint. The glass of wine that I received for $10 lasted me all through chit chat and the meal. Make no mistake - this is a burgers and sandwich place, but the food was inventive and delicious. Both husbands ordered pizza and they were very happy with their selections. My friend and I ordered sandwiches, in fact, burgers. Mine was awesome! The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten containing products and didn't try to guess; they always asked. We totally enjoyed ourselves and I know that we will be back.

The crab cake sandwich had little flavor. The fries were undercooked. The dressing was supposed to be onthe side on the salad. The salads came out with the sandwich and pizza out way early.

I usually like the food at Manor Hill, but this time I was disappointed with my selection. I ordered the crab cake sandwich, and it was too salty. Also the dining area was too dark and the tables too small. The appetizers (Brussels sprouts and Greek quesadilla) were excellent, and my kids loved the chicken sandwich. Next time I'll try a different menu selection.

Been here several times and find this to be the weakest link in the Victoria restaurant group. Beer/bar selections are very good, the food, however are not as good as they should be. Too few offerings as a restaurant, unless you was to sell as a pizzeria/bar. What happened to the risotto?
