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.

Answers reflect dining on the outside patio, which has very little in the way of atmosphere. Our server took a break and somehow the person who should have picked up service for the missing Shae, was absent most of the rest of our visit, which became annoying when we wanted additional items and the final bill. The general manager took care; but it should not come to this. The food was very good

I’ve been coming to Old Ellicott City for years and always saw this restaurant, but for whatever reason I never tried it til now. I was missing out! Everything from the ambience, to the service, to the food was awesome. There were some really unique menu options that I haven’t seen anywhere else. My boyfriend and I split the State Fair, bacon fat fries, and roasted zucchini for lunch - it was all tasty and the perfect amount of food. Will be back very soon.

We came in and told your hostess staff that we could not find parking and had parked at curbside parking which had 10 spaces open. We were told to move our vehicle to a public parking lot, however there were no spots available so we were unable to eat at your tavern as we drove over an hour to visit. Very disappointed.

With Covid 19 being a part of our everyday lives, we are always a bit concerned what a dining places protocols are & if they are enforced. So, that's our #1 concern. Well, Manor Hill Tavern has it down perfectly! All staff was masked, we got a lovely table in the upstairs part of the restaurant not near anyone and we felt perfectly save & distanced the entire time. With that concern done, we had a leisurely lunch with excellent service and delicious food. Even the manager stopped by to check on us and how our experience was going. It was excellent. Would highly recommend this lovely restaurant!! Many thanks!

Cute tavern with good selection of American food. Staff was courteous. My main concern was that they sat different tables indoor within 6 feet of one another.

One person in our party of four ordered a pizza. The pizza arrived early - the person was half done with pizza before the other orders arrived. The server did not acknowledge this.

In fact, this is the third time this has happened to us. Usually it's just my husband and me when the pizza arrives after I'm half done with my order. The customer shouldn't have to remind the staff to coordinate the timing of pizza with other orders.

The food at Manor Hill Tavern was amazing! We sat up at the bar and had very attentive servers. We started off with the bacon fat fries w/ molasses ketchup (don’t skip out on this ketchup) and bbq brisket egg rolls for appetizers and I recommend them both they were SO good! We also had the chicken slammer, the bacon cheeseburger, and the Holy Smoke pizza for our entrees which were all equally delicious! Definitely recommend anyone to try this restaurant. The quality of the food is so dang good, and the service is quick. We had a great experience here and will be back to try more things on the menu 😊

We had a lovely Sunday lunch on the patio. The food was excellent and the staff was attentive and efficient. They are definitely making the best of the current situation. We had the Restaurant week special egg rolls - which were delicious - and a Margherita pizza. A wonderful meal!

Although it was a little chilly out, the food and atmosphere more than made up for it. I love Manor Hill & will return again soon.

We both ordered and ate too much because the food was so good.

This is during the pandemic restrictions, so we ate outside on the covered patio.

Exceptional service from the waitresses! The pizza was really good and they have good drinks as well. It's a really nice environment but the attention the servers give makes it one of the best parts of eating out.

The pulled pork and chicken sandwiches were great, truly. The beer was well priced, had good variety, and flavor I'd rate good for a casual beer drinker and probably just above average if you're a little more of a snob (guilty). The outdoor patio was a nice option, but not very pretty. I'm nitpicking a bit, because overall, I really did enjoy the experience. As a whole package, food, beer, and service, I'd eat here again for sure.
