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 were a party of four, had one pizza, one salad, one burger and one sandwich. Everything was exceptional! Fresh greens, crispy pizza crust, excellent burger and sandwich. Can't wait to go back!

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.

The back patio is picturesque and intimate. The service is speedy and accurate. The Holy Smoke pizza is a must for every visit along with the Bacon Fat fries and a flight of Manor Hill beers. Love this restaurant!

This was our first foray out into world - with kids - since the stay at home. We were excited to try something new, and we were not disappointed! The venue was clean, welcoming, and we were actually excited to be eating in the dining room. We were space out, felt comfortable, and saw staff sanitizing everything from the front door to the tables as patrons left. The staff was awesome, and you could tell they missed their work-family and were happy to be back. OH - and the food and beer is amazing!!!! Can't wait to go back for a date night!!!

It was nice to sit outside and have a good view ( no parking lots or traffic) Food was delicious,fresh and good portion sizes. Service was a little slow but we were not in a urry so it was not an issue. We really enjoyed sitting outside, the area is small so there is not a lot of noise and you don;t hear other ppls conversations. Very enjoyable evening.

The service and food were phenomenal, as usual. They only have limited seating available due to COVID-19, by reservation only. Manor Hill Tavern is one of my absolutely favorites, but my only complaint is that it’s usually loud and crowded. Now that the tables are more spread out, the ambiance is drastically improved and makes for a much better dining experience. I could also tell that the staff was taking every precaution to ensure the safety of all patrons by sanitizing all surfaces after each guest and by requiring masks when not seated at your table. High praise for Manor Hill!

Great food and service. However the outdoor table we sat at was against the wall so I was staring at a wall the whole time which was odd.

I booked this for my girlfriend’s birthday, as she loves craft beer and quality comfort food. We enjoyed it, the food was as described. The pizza was good, not spectacular (duck pizza) but the crab fondue funnel crab was excellent. The brisket sandwich had nice flavor but again, nothing spectacular. The top-floor rear awning was a nice place to get enjoy a meal. Overall pretty good experience. My girlfriend very much love enjoyed the Stout

I’ve missed you Manor Hill. I’ve missed the camaraderie, the Farm Fuzz, Kayla the Bartender, the Managers, and the smores. The outside dining area was sensational on it’s first day open since the epic 2020 COVID-19 lockdown. I can accept this as the new normal because all things Manor Hill are sensational.

Amy and her team went above and beyond to ensure our group had a memorable time for our children’s graduation. From keeping the staff late to accommodate us to their cheerful, professional demeanor, we were blown away by the service! The food, as usual, was excellent! We could not recommend Manor Hill more! 5 stars!

Nicolina was extremely attentive and discrete at the same time. Her presence was always well-timed and gracious. The food was delicious; not many people were there so we had a quiet, pleasant time in a relaxed space. We'll come again soon!

This was our first dining out since restaurants started to open back up with outdoor seating. The entire staff was great from the time we called when we arrived at the restaurant. They were so nice and it really felt almost normal. All our favorites were still on the menu! We also were able to see two different tables get sanitized and he was outstanding and thorough!! Look forward to going back.

We enjoy the Manor Hill Tavern even though it is about 45 minute drive from our house. Service is prompt; food and beer are tasty. This was our first visit since the Corona lockdown. We had a nice lunch on the patio. I tried the chicken sandwich, which I hadn’t had before. The flavors from the chicken mixed well with the chipotle slaw. And how can you go wrong with the bacon fat fries? Wash it all down with a nice stout. Ahhhhh!

Manor Hill has been our "go-to" for a long time. And this past experience did not disappoint. Food was wonderful- generous servings. Wait staff was polite, attentive and efficient. Manager came to our table and said hello- checked on us.
It was a true dining pleasure. We will be back again very soon!
