Wonderful food and service as always! I had the tomato and burrata and it was fabulous! Also. Where else can you get a nice 2011 Rioja for half off?! Great deal!

About the restaurant
Bud's at Silver Run is a casual elegant restaurant located just north of Westminster, MD and south of Gettysburg, PA. Opened in May of 2008 "Bud's at Silver Run" invites you to enjoy great dining in a casual, friendly atmosphere. Local resident Blinn Salisbury III and partner Ken Lurie are pleased to become part of the community and to revive this great location. We have searched for the right restaurant and are happy that we have found it in Silver Run. Ken brings more than thirty years of varied restaurant experience with him to Bud's. From learning under Karl Beckley at the Greenlake Grill in Seattle to Food & Beverage Director of the Virgin Grand in the Virgin Islands, Ken is excited to return to Maryland. Our goal is to enhance and enrich your dining by offering a quality restaurant experience. We hope to meet and exceed your expectations in each of your visits. Whether you live in the area or if you are just passing through we look forward to making Bud's your place!

The restaurant was busy and a little loud at first, but things quieted down as the evening went on. Great food and service at a reasonable price. The salmon dinner was excellent and I enjoyed the house cabernet. We’ll be back!

Our waiter, Scott, did a fantastic job taking care of us. He is quick with a joke. Had us laughing most of the meal. It was clear he takes his craft seriously.

Food was excellent as always. So were the cocktails. Unfortunately for the first time since we've been going there the service was astonishingly slow. Especially noticeable at the end of the night when as one of the few remaining tables we still waited a long time for the dessert samples and for the check. Won't put us off coming, but made for a longer than 2 hour dinner.

About the restaurant
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.

Father’s Day Dinner!! This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised!! We were able to sit outside which was not ce. I would love to see a little more on the menu. My husband enjoyed the crab cake and I enjoyed my rattlesnake pasta. The in-house lemonade was phenomenal! My only issue (which wasn’t really a big deal) Our server seemed quite busy and we had to wait a while for refills and requested items. He did explain that the wait for the drinks was due to the bartender being busy. She appeared to be the only one on duty at the bar. Overall, the experience was good and we will be back.
