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.

The service was good, the food, not so good...crab dip to salty, the funnel cake it was served with was not done, too doughy...the pizza we ordered, wasn't done, doughy, not hot, horrible taste...we have eaten here in the past, we have always been pleased, we have even taken out of town family here...just don't know what happened last night, but it was extremely disappointing...

Great place to stop in for dinner. The Maryland State Fair App was super fun - all of the food was delish. Great, quick service. Good vibes.

I made the reservation a long time ago but we got a table in the bar area. My husband got the bagels and loucks salad and it was not nearly as good as last time. Our waitress was not very attentive or friendly.

The service & food were awesome, and we loved the charm of the building!

However, acoustics in the lower dining area are bad. We were one of only two tables on a Monday night, and the other table's conversation was echoing all over the room, making it hard to hear my wife right in front of me. Never experienced something like that before! Gotta bring in an acoustical contractor to make some kind of fix; probably wouldn't cost much to mitigate. Can't believe someone else hasn't complained before.

Probably won't come back for this reason alone...hopefully the owners make a fix!

The food and service were perfect as usual. Unfortunately there was a very loud group in the same dining area which made it difficult to have a conversation at times. This is no fault of Manor Hill though and won’t stop me from returning.

Food was good and loved the outdoor seating area. Service was great and I loved that the bartenders tag teamed all the tables outside and helped each other out. This is how it should be at restaurants. We will definitely be back again because there is so many more food options I want to try. Also, the beer was one of my favorites ever! (The fruitier if the the IPA’s).

Nice atmosphere, attentive and polite service, and good food. We have visited Manor Hill Tavern several times over the past two years, and have always had a pleasant experience. We also like the fact that they use reusable dinner and table ware, do not use plastic cups or straws and any left over food items can be brought home in paper product containers (rather than plastic). A nice place for a nice meal.

We had Sunday brunch. The menu is creative and the meals delicious. We each had something different and they were all delicious - French toast and eggs, short rib omelet, chicken and waffles and carb pizza. We also enjoyed 2 specialty cocktails that were great too. Again, their cocktails are very creative, classic and delicious. Our server was extremely personable and knowledable. The restaurant is very charming and has a very interesting history, as does every place in Old Ellicott City. Highly recommend for lunch and dinner too. The menus looked very good. Make a reservation!!

It was our first time at Manor Tavern Hill and Old Ellicott City and neither disappointed. The staffand our server Katie were so gracious and hospitable. Oh, I can not forget the manager who stop by to see how our experience was- didn't get her name but she also took some time and shared some things about the town too- so nice!

I had a seasonal drink with BlackBerry and it was the highlight of the meal!!! I also had the seasonal Truffle Shuffle pizza which was pretty tasty. The value was where my rating went down. I had two drinks, fries as an app, and a pizza. That cost $54 without tip. In my this pretty expensive for tavern/pub food. My friend had a burger and fries and it was $20, so I felt like that was too expensive. Maybe those are pandemic prices......
