    This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is locally sourced and the menu always interesting. The chef, and co-owner, is creative and friendly, clearly caring about the experience of his guests. It’s not cheap, but well worth the price.

    We had a wonderful brunch at The Elkridge Furnace Inn. Our table was quiet and socially distanced, the indoor temp was lovely (it was 90+ outside), and our server Jason was just fantastic - polite, helpful and charming. Our food was all delicious! Whe we are in the neighborhood again, we will absolutely dine here.

    The ham biscuit appetizer was terrible. The biscuit was exceptionally dry, crumbling beneath my fork. The small dap of accompanying mustard was not nearly enough to moisten the mess. The slice of semi-melted cheese on top was ill-conceived. The salmon special was a nearly inedible dish that was a mishmash of flavors: salmon topped with a white sauce, resting on a bed of squid ink pasta and surrounded by marinara sauce.

    The Elkridge Furnace Inn is our go-to place when we want a great meal. Last night we sat outside and the weather and ambiance were perfect. Service was as friendly and efficient as ever. The biggest problem at EFI is choosing what to order, so both of us created our own little tasting menus with three starter dishes and finished up with a dessert. A wonderful evening!

    We had a wonderful evening, and enjoyed a leisurely dinner at our own pace. The Veal Chop and Saltimboca were both wonderful dishes that my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed. Our waiter, unfortunately neither of us could remember his name was wonderful. He didn't linger, but was right there when we needed him. He understood our plan for a leisurely pace and even accommodated our late departure happily. Wine selection was excellent, we enjoyed a nice California Cabernet that paired well with the veal dishes. Really couldn't have been nicer.

    We came for Restuarant Week and ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. Everything was excellent. Enjoyed every plat. So sad the roll basket has not returned yet. The house made breads were part of the meal we loved as we have been regulars for more over 20 years.

    This was our first time visiting the Elkdridge Furnace Inn. We've lived in Elkridge for over 15 years and decided to celebrate our birthdays with a date night to the Inn. The location is beautiful and different from any other restaurant we've dined in at. We both chose from the restaurant week menu and some of the food was appetizing. That's probably the best praise I can give the food itself. I don't really want to go into all of the specifics of everything we ate but I'll say for my main course, I had the New York Strip, it was cooked perfectly. However, the sauce was way too sweet for me so it was slighly unappealing. My wife had the shrimp and veal Pasta which felt underdone and really salty, likely the veal, but again, it was just meh. We were happy to have finally tried the Elkridge Furnace Inn, but for the price, we don't think we'll be back.

    My wife and I went to EFI for our 15 year wedding anniversary. Even though it was during Restaurant Week and thus quite busy, the food and service was fantastic. The Baltimore crab soup was superb. My steak was perfect - I enjoyed every bite.

    We had an enjoyable meal and never felt rushed. The food was delicious and their decaf coffee was excellent! We ate off of their restaurant week menu. I highly recommend the Cream of Baltimore soup. My husband wasn't too impressed with the charcuterie board. The Shrimp and Veal Pasta was tasty as was the Summer Vegetable Quiche.

    My wife, two friends, and I went to celebrate my completion of a post graduate program. The waiter who was unfortunately recovering from a recent stroke dropped our drinks, spilling the contents on one of my guests. Although he was very apologetic it was not an auspicious beginning. The cream soup was very good, but we all ranked our entrees a three out of five. The desserts were very good.

    This is the 4th straight anniversary we went there. It is still a nice place, but not at the same level as previous years. The waiter forgot to bring the wine bottle we had ordered and almost did no return our credit card (2nd year for this). Also there was no comping or freebies for our anniversary like the last 3 years. I guess business must be hurting. But for anniversaries, the experience has to be exceptional or we will go elsewhere.

    Food was very good, there was a very loud party in the next room, so our nice quiet dinner wasn't quiet. The waiter said it was a birthday that included a little too much drinking. I love that the veggies come from their gardens.

    An upscale, highly customer-conscious establishment, this classic restaurant boasts organic, tasty and imaginative dishes. Exceptional service, an extensive wine selection and a unique venue in an historic home on the Patapsco River- yet in an old Elkridge neighborhood- make you feel as if you’re at home eating your grandmother’s gourmet dinner. Bravo!

    We first tried this restaurant during Restaurant Week in 2021 and enjoyed our dishes, so decided to try their regular menu. This visit we started with the Smoked Trout Mousse and Ricotta Stuffed Squash Blossoms, which were delightfully unique. Entrees were the Basque Duck Confit and the Lebanese Chicken, paired with a Bordeaux and Cote du Rhone Rouge respectively. Both were excellent dishes and the recommended pairings were perfect compliments. We ended our evening with the Hazelnut Frangipan Tart and the Honey & Lavender Creme Brulee; both dishes were sweet and delicious, but we especially enjoyed the unique flavor of the Creme Brulee. Altogether a wonderful experience, served by our waiter Jim. Our compliments to Chef Dan for a delightful meal!
