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.

Great place for many occasions; I went on a date and we selected to build our own pizza which ended up being delicious.

Even though we had a reservation we were seated at a tiny table in a very crowded side room . My chair was actually touching the chair of a person at the next table. It was ridiculous. The food was ok but not worth being so uncomfortable.

Great wings. The crab pizza was outstanding. Our server, Cara was pleasant, helpful and entertaining all at same time. Next Time in Ellicott City we will be back. Thanks Cara.

Went for brunch for the first time and it was amazing. The Maryland State Fair appetizer (fried dough and crab dip) was delicious as always. I got the Chicken and Waffle Benedict and it was so oddly amazing. Somehow everything worked together with the salty and sweet and savory. The only things that could’ve been improved were the service (the server only had a few tables, but still didn’t come around much for some reason) and the iced tea (I like it unsweetened and don’t add sugar, but it was made so strong I could barely drink it). Will definitely be going back for brunch again soon!

We enjoyed a light evening meal (shared pizza and a fabulous Cobb salad). We completely enjoyed the food, as well as a couple of beers from their nice selection. It was not busy and service was very good.

I’ve heard great things about Manor Hill Tavern, so my friends and I decided to go check it out. Unfortunately, the overall experience was lousy. It took about 20 minutes to get our drinks (water and beer) and around 45 minutes to get our appetizer (a quesadilla). The server asked if we wanted our appetizer before our meal, and we said yes, yet both came out at the same time. At the end of dinner, our server gave us our check and never came back around to complete the transaction.

I don’t like to complain, but I feel as though this should be addressed/brought to the restaurants attention - I do not want others to experience this! The restaurant was not busy while we were there, and we were very confused as to why our server was inattentive.

Food was definitely overpriced; it tasted just fine but we definitely felt like we paid too much for what we got. They seem to apply one flavor to everything. The mac & cheese was lackluster.

Farm to table with down home ambiance! Booths are constructed from original building materials in this 18th Century setting. Old Town Ellicott City is the real “charm” of Baltimore. Excellent food and beverages.

Our party of 6 had a very nice evening at Manor Hill Tavern. Service was very good, and the food and drink were very tasty. Only criticism was the stark difference in size of chicken portions served with three identical salad options. The fried chicken portion was enormous, the grilled chicken a perfect size, but the beer can chicken, which had simply been described as a pulled smoke chicken, was a very small portion of diced chicken served in a salad dressing metal cup - it contained barely 2 oz of meat, if that much. One guest left still feeling hungry and If portion size had been explained at the time of ordering, the beer can chicken option would not have been selected.

Excellent place and will be back. Seems like one of the kitchens was having a rough night so our food came out at different times but the server kept checking for us- would give it another chance, as the food was really good.

2nd visit in one week. Seated upstairs this time. Not much view but great for a dinner date with friends I haven’t seen in awhile. There’s enough space between tables so you can don’t have to worry about bumping into someone or overhearing their entire conversation! Highly recommend Bagel and Lox salad. Sangria was ok but their other cocktails are delicious.

The Bacon Fat Fries with Molasses Ketchup delicious!!! a must have. Food and drinks were very good. We made reservations for Friday @ 6:30 which wasn't needed at that time but by the time we left it was packed. It's close to the big parking lot so parking wasn't a problem either. Will definitely be back!

Food and service are consistently good. Restaurant week specials but we stuck to the regular menu. The salmon blt on special menu sounded great though. Favorite sandwich is the “bird is the word” and just tried the Cuban sandwich which was really tasty too.

I took a little while to get the food but when we did get it, It was good. The brussels sprouts were not nearly as good as the ones at Victoria's Gastro Pub. It was a little tight at the table, a lot of tables cramped into a small area.

Hannah was the best server we have ever had here. She managed all her tables and was timely, attentive, and knowledgeable.

You should put Nueske’s bacon on your pizza. It would be a home run.

Burgers were excellent.
