My wife and I went to EFI for our anniversary dinner. We loved the food, we loved the location and everything was great from start to finish!
Treat yourself to this amazing place. The food, service, and atmosphere are unparalleled!
First time I ate there was wonderful, second time was not that good. Not sure if I'll try again.
Such a great find off the beaten path. I rarely write reviews, but thought this place was worthy. I loved the historical charm and the fresh produce grown across the way! It brings back the charm of our history!
My husband and I went out of our way to dine again at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. The food is exceptional and the staff is terrific. Both times we have dined, here we have been greeted warmly and not rushed at all. I highly recommend the Elkridge Furnace Inn for the wonderful food, lovely surroundings and excellent customer service.
Lovely Brunch . Wonderful old home that was renovated. Intimate dining and lovely menu with lots of good options. Great service
Without a doubt my finest restarant experience in this area in decades.
Our party of three were treated to a pleasant low-key acknowledgement of a birthday.
The setting was delightful, and the service was perfect—not intrusive but appropriately attentive. One special dietary request was readily accommodated. Excellent selection of wines, and many excellent menu options. Our meals were outstanding in quality, diversity, and presentation. The one minor flaw—the sauce ordered to accompany the fillet did not appear at first—was quickly remedied.
Finally, our three dessert selections were each outstanding.
Best gluten free food in the area.
ELEGANT RESTAURANT. WELL PREPARED FOOD, FRESH, AND WELL DELIVERRED
My husband and I were treated as if we were royalty. The food was amazingly fresh and delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly. We will definitely be coming back!
Our server Hilary was amazing1 attentive, informative and pleasant. The food was amazing as was the dessert. All smiles!
What a treasure delicious food fabulous service some of the kindest restaurant people I've ever met. When in Baltimore do not miss this exciting restaurant very peaceful beautiful setting very nice evening. SO Historic
Fabulous in house made pastries and vegetables served fresh from their garden out back! Chef Dan is a master chef! Never disappointed when we dine there.
Had an absolutely amazing meal. The wine list was plentiful with reasonably priced wines. The local food sourcing combined with mastery of their chef makes this a true gem! As a retired AIr Force veteran, I especially enjoyed the military discount.
Every year my husband and I visit here to celebrate our anniversary. It seems every year the food just gets better and better. The chef uses fresh and local foods. Most of the vegetables and herbs are from the restaurants own garden. The service is amazing and you always feel special when here. I would also recommend the EIF for anyone looking to get married in a beautiful place with great food!!
Fantastic food, locally sourced (much of it from the property itself). Historic location, great staff.
Service was impeccable, we felt welcomed and comfortable as soon as we arrived. Food was outstanding as well as drinks and desserts. They had a wedding reception going on while we were there that added to our enjoyment! Just a overall great night! We will be back. Thanks
Great food, huge gluten free menu, and great staff.
As always, everything was perfect! The food was delicious; we especially like your seasonal fresh vegetables. Our server, Stephen, was courteous and attentive. And we were tremendously impressed that the maitre d' recognized us by name. We can't wait to return!
We celebrated our anniversary there when we received a promotional offer based on prior attendance and registration. My husband had the special clam soup and steak special. Everything was flavorful and cooked to his liking. I enjoyed the brook trout - one of the best fish dishes I’ve had. The key lime cheesecake capped off a wonderful dinner. We felt special based on the visits from the manager and chef checking on satisfaction.
The most elegant meal I've had in a long time. The staff absolutely pampers you from beginning to end. The meal was superb.
My CEO was visiting from out of town and staying near the airport. He loves good food and a good wine list so I jumped on yelp to find something nearby. He claims it’s the best meal he’s ever had while traveling. After dinner, the chef came out and introduced himself and gave us a little history and thanked us for coming in. Overall awesome experience. This place is now at the top of my list. I’ll definitely be back
We returned to the site of our wedding for the first time in 20 years. Thank you to The Elkridge Furnace Inn and Garden House for your hospitality and warm welcome. Not to mention the great food.
This has always been one of our favorite restaurants but we were so disappointed by our latest visit. Both of our entrees arrived lukewarm possibly because the waiter seemed to have too many tables to give adequate service to all of them. The rolls were very dry and hard and seemed a bit stale. I ordered the butternut squash soup but its consistency was more like mashed potatoes than that of a soup. My husband ordered the seafood stew and it too was way to thick to be called a stew. Overall, we were totally unimpressed this time around and will probably think twice about returning any time soon.
Delicious french inspired locally sourced meals. Novel flavor combinations and great tastes. Knowledgeable wait staff with a focus on making your experience the best. Small rooms with only a few tables make this a great place for intimate dinners and for folks who want to talk. We had one person with a food allergy, they went out of their way to accommodate us.
Amazing food. Had a menu with just gluten-free items. They had several gluten-free desserts that are made on site. Service went above and beyond. Super cute and historic building. I can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth the drive.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. The food was delicious and the menu offered dishes that you are not likely to see everywhere else. The service was wonderful. A very enjoyable evening!
As always best options for gluten free meal in the area.
Went for our 19th Wedding Anniversary! Love the complimentary glass of champagne. Delicious food, quiet dining and great service. A must-go-to restaurant for any occasion.
Got there was greeted by the host. Got seated right away. Service and food were both amazing. Would definitely go back and recommend this place to others.
Great dinner with friends, seasonal menu, great service, food was outstanding, chef made a visit to check on everyone, will go back to enjoy more great menu items.
Amazing restaurant. Very quiet and classy. They have this pork with okra which was amazing. Very friendly staff. Will go back
My wife and I had 11 year anniversary dinner at Elkridge Furnace Inn on 7/07/18. Service and food was outstanding! Host staff: Very friendly and welcoming. Server: did a great job and made good drink recommendations. Chef Daniel: stopped by our table for a few minutes to chat with us and wish us a happy anniversary. Food was very good. I'm a vegetarian and there were lots of options. Wife said the surf-and-turf was fantastic. For desert, recommend the pineapple upside-down cake with pineapple ice cream- delicious. Tip: Check their social media for some good discounts.
I have been to the Elkridge Furnace Inn on a number of occasions. It was the first time for my friend. The food is always quite good. The menu is changed often and always seasonal. The martini was ice cold (which is a good thing). The food was spaced accordingly and the service was excellent.
Spectacular !! From the moment we arrived. Amazing staff, service and cuisine! Chef stopped by to introduce himself and to see how everything was. Can't wait to come back for brunch!!
The food wasn’t good and we felt rushed
Always a very satisfying and pleasant evening at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. This was our 10th Anniversary and we wanted it to be special. I was not disappointed. Between the complimentary champagne and appetizer and our meals, we could not have dessert. Maybe next trip. The staff is impeccable and on point. I love that.
Our favorite place to eat. Superb food and service.
We went there to celebrate our 5 year wedding Anniversary. Both the food and service exceeded our expectations.
Historical venue with the best food. I took my husband and daughter there for Father's Day, and we enjoyed one of the best brunches ever. Tasty dishes presented hot and plentiful. Herbs and vegetables came from their garden. My daughter commented that the shrimp and grits was the best she's ever tasted. My husband enjoyed the western omelette and I throughly enjoyed the seafood omelette; crab, shrimp, scallops, scallions and gruyere cheese.
