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.

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......

The food was delicious! Our service was good, however I think our waiter (who was super friendly and great overall) was overloaded with too many tables. Will happily go back again!

The food is always fantastic and thoughtfully crafted. You can't make any wrong choices when it comes to their menu options. The staff is so pleasant and welcoming, and the atmosphere is casual but very clean, cozy and inviting. Brunch is a must! Come back often enough to try everything on the menu.

Great food and service, what more can you ask for?! Beer and cocktails, yes, those too! We always get a brick oven pizza for each of us and the Smoker is my all time favorite. This time we tried the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer and they were delicious. Manor Hill has a great atmosphere and is a perfect setting in old Ellicott City. Our server, Angela, was excellent; very friendly and efficient.

Great atmosphere, however the prices just don't match up with the menu. $17 for a sandwich filled with vegetables is unreasonable, as is the $18 burger.

I will say they make the best salads ever though! Great beer and cocktail list.

I'll definitely come again, but maybe just for an app and drink.

The restaurant week prix-fix menue read very elegant and avant-garde. The plates had good even the almost-too-much beurre blanc made the celery root purée just gorgeous. HOWEVER, the dessert was extremely disappointing. I almost sent it back. It was said to be a peach CRISP bar. I didn't have the ice cream not only because it doesn't agree with me rather because I wanted this CRISP(?) peach bar to be unadulterated and taste as it is meant to be. It was anything BUT crisp. It was as if someone opened a jar of peach baby food, tossed it with some flour it wasn't even worthy of that label. $10 wasted and there was sadly not enough alcohol in my 1, $9 cocktail to convince me otherwise. Don't think we will be joining restaurant week there again next time. The folks that wait tables there are fantastically attentive; sorry we can't say the same for all the kitchen staff. Regards!

Food was incredibly good. Started out with the wings followed by a burger with the street fries. Everything was outstanding. Sat close to where the pizzas were made and those looked really good too.

Great food and service. Would definitely return. Only critique is that the restaurant could do a better job on it's website explaining the differences between the beer garden, the indoor restaurant and the patio/terrace. In short: 1) Beer garden -- no draft beer available and food comes in takeout boxes. But dogs are allowed; 2) patio/terrace -- cannot reserve a table for the patio, reservations are for indoor tables only. No dogs.
