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.

We came on a Monday night and we’re surprised that it was pizza night. The pizzas were great and each piece pizza was $10 along with discounted drink prices and discount on appetizers. Very impressive. I haven’t been there in a long time and with this new chef I’ll definitely be back.

We had a very pleasant experience last evening. Our food and server were excellent. We will be back. Thank you for such a pleasant experience. One suggestion would be to have staff say goodbye as we exit the restaurant.

My son and I enjoyed lunch. It was a pleasant experience. The wait staff were friendly and welcoming. I was disappointed they no longer serve Teriakki-glazed salmon, but the food we ordered was good. A bit noisy and crowded but overall a nice afternoon.

About the restaurant
A warm and inviting place where guests could gather to relax and enjoy a delicious meal, a glass of wine or a cocktail, and conversation with friends. European-style design with comfortable chairs, pleasant colors, and a familiar feel. Our atmosphere and menu are largely Italian-inspired, however, we also offer a wide variety of seafood dishes and char-grilled meats too. In addition, we stay true to the traditional “diner experience” by serving timeless home-style favorites, artisan sandwiches and breakfast any time.
