The Elkridge Furnace Inn
Chef-owned, yard and farm to table, using lots of local sourcing, our complex dishes turn ordinary ingredients into something extraordinary. Seasonal menu and daily specials. Our historic location is part of the adventure!
We serve a fusion of New American and French Inspiration. Our executive chef was trained under the French disciplines which always come out in our stocks, sauces and presentations. Many regional and ethnic cuisines influenced by French cuisine are also reflected on our menu. Our in-House Pastry will add just the right ending to your dining experience.
We love creating special times to share with our friends. We intersect literature, history and geography as story with our food. There is always something new and creative happening. At the Elkridge Furnace Inn and Garden House, “we make Memories”.

Amazing, owner is the consummate restaurateur that Michelin writes about.
Wonderful cozy atmosphere next to the fireplace. Great food, beautifully presented, loved the cab special. Great birthday celebration.
My husband and I really enjoyed our meal at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. The menu was seasonal and locally sourced with a nice variety of dishes from which to choose. The entrees were delicious and complimented by well paired sides. The inn is a beautiful colonial house; elegant yet cosy. We noticed a tent for large parties behind the house. We will definitely be returning.
It's very out-of-the way, but it is very good and worth the drive. I look forward to going back in the summer when I can see the outside. I went in January when it was dark.
My truffle asparagus soup was amazing and the beef pot pie was exquisite! Kiddos to Chef Dan!
Delicious food, creative menu, excellent service. We really enjoyed our dining experience, and will be sure to visit again sometime.
The Elkridge Inn is beautiful and very historic. It's also quiet enough to have a conversation with your dinner partners, which is hard to find these days! It is quite near BWI airport so we went before putting our daughter on a plane back to grad school. The white asparagus soup was particularly great. Service was excellent. Definitely recommend.
Excellent food, service, and ambience. Elegant but not stuffy.
We loved everything. Perfect NewYears Eve celebration.
Aside from the fact that I felt the prices were inflated for the New Years Eve Holiday and I don't like limited menu's (again due to the Holiday), everything was fine. We will gladly return for a regular evening as we usually have a good time and a good meal here, but I'll avoid for future Holidays.
Once again special and delicious! Did catch us off guard with the New Year’s Eve Prix-Fixe menu, but was definitely worth every dollar. The original take on the Olive appetizer was delicious and paired very nicely with the Golden Lady (?) citrusy cocktail; the Truffled Asparagus Soup was full of flavor; the Rockfish and Spinach Risotto was perfectly done. We did feel the bread course was a bit under what we usually expect from them but the herbed rolls were still good.
Great food, proportions and service. A little disappointed that mimosas were not included in the price of brunch. Would definitely return.
I would say this establishment was aimed at older clientele, however, the parking lot is unpaved, has potholes, and the path is dimly lit with uneven stone.
I ordered their a la carte NY strip entree, medium rare, which came out fairly quickly, however it was medium at best.
The server never came back to ask how my meal was, and the bus boy just took my 1/2 eaten plate away without asking if I wanted it boxed up.
If you want to feel like you're somewhere stodgy and overpriced, this is a great place.
Top notch white glove service. All the entrees and desserts were fantastic.
Always a fine memorable experience at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. Of special note is the extensive gluten-free menu items including rolls, entrees, and deserts. Top marks for the chef and staff.
We had a very good meal with friends. The cocktails(parts ratio off) and online menus(dinner and wine not current) are areas that could be improved. However, it was a fine evening - our server (Tim) and busser (Tyrone) did a great job!
I was more than pleasantly surprised as to how good the dining experience was at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. The bus and wait staff (Nicholas and Brian) were excellent - they were there but not there (when needed but not hovering). The food was excellent from the plating and presentation to taste. The pastries are to die for. Even something as simple as mint chocolate chip ice cream in a crystallized chocolate/caramel shell was memorable. The cookies (which were taken home as I wanted to try them) were very good and she liked them as well. We got there a bit earlier than the reservation and it was something feeling like we had the whole restaurant to ourselves. Definitely worth a revisit (when the menu changes) - always nice to try something new.
We are local to Elkridge but had not visited in a while. Lunch was excellent and many options in 15-18$ range. Top of the line taste for everything we ordered
I love the atmosphere. Staff is friendly and food is delicious and made from fresh ingredients. Great for special occasions
The food was just not very high quality for the price. Way too much salt in my dish (pot pie) and the crab cakes were just meh. Service was good though.
Outstanding dinner! Love this place. Will definitely return whenever in Baltimore area.
Spur of the moment brunch request from my girls turned into another wonderful time at The Elkridge Furnace Inn. My girls love the restaurant just as much as my wife and I. Chef Daniel and the staff always treats us like good friends and we look forward to our next visit!
Third time here for an anniversary dinner— the place never disappoints!
We came to the restaurant for our 15th wedding anniversary dinner. Everything was perfect. Amazing culinary expertise was very evident and the service was truly top notch. All the dishes were exquisite as well. Having a crab cake with zero filler was next level. Thank you for a great experience!
Nice place. The food, however, is more in line with catered fare. It really could benefit from some attention paid to a more intimate dining experience. I just felt like I was eating at a catered wedding. Lights in our dining room could have been softer. Waiter was top notch, though.
The service was outstanding, food exceptional. We were short of time and team made everything to expedite our dinner and make us feel we were their best guests.
I very pleasant evening with family. As always, the waiter was very friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic.
Went there for a special celebration. Loved it. Havent been here for over 20 years and it appears to have gotten even better. Wait staff was very attentive. Matra de was warm and friendly and even the chef came out to greet us! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and went home very happy. Will be back for sure.
I bought a cupón off of Travelzoo and loved every minute of the experience. We sat upstairs near the fireplace. The chef and the owner came by to talk to us.
The food was delicious. We ordered the steak and I am very picky about my steaks being raised on a ranch and living in Texas my whole adult life. Our fillet literally just flaked off and to say that about my boyfriend says a lot since he gets his steak cooked MW. I know don’t judge him.
I highly recommend this place.
What a pleasant evening!! We arrived 15 minutes late because of traffic yet were graciously shown to a quiet table in an upstairs dining room. The decor was tasteful, the staff is well trained, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.
The menu was varied with good wine pairings shown for each selection. Everything was prepared and presented artfully - and was delicious. There was a visit from the Executive Chef mid meal to make sure every thing was to our satisfaction.
We very much look forward to a return to try some of the other items on the menu!
I picked my wife up from BWI and instead of sitting in traffic, we went to dinner at the Elkridge Furnace Inn and it was excellent.
Excellent, attentive service. Excellent food on this visit. The salads are very good because all the vegetables are usually grown by the restaurant in their greenhouses. Seasonal salads have never disappointed.
Lunch menu is a bit limited compared to the dinner menu, but a value because our best experiences there have always been at lunch. Desserts are always excellent. We had the Eggnog creme brulee and the black currant ice cream - both outstanding.
Beautiful, historic location - fantastic staff - delicious food - hidden gem - expensive, but worth every penny - perfect for romantic/special/celebratory occasions
Fabulous seasonal food, fantastic wait staff, and historical charm
Perfect for a special occasion, to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. Service was fabulous and food quality was excellent, will definitely go back again if in the area! :D
Exceptional as always.
Our first visit to the Furnace Inn, we picked it for the Historic Property, Holiday feel, Family dinner with adult children, Food was outstanding, attentive service, friendly, desserts were SOOOOOO good and presented so well! Happy with the wine and cocktails. A pricey place but worth it for a nice occasion.
Menu could use a few more apps. Will go back for a special event. We had steak and Fish for dinner, both very good.
Great food in a historic setting. Can not say enough about the great selection of entrees and appetizers. Wonderful fireplace and comfortable room. Staff was very attentive and owners stopped by to ensure everything was going well.
As always, fantastic food and great service!
We have been here many times and every Thanksgiving for about 5 years. They never dissappoint us as their service and food are both outstanding.
