Dined on a Thursday evening and had a delicious dinner. We were seated in an upstairs dining room with the fireplace going, which was very pleasant on a cold winter's night. The Veal Oscar was excellent. Also tried Filet Mignon ,which came with brussel sprouts and grits (your choice of sides). Everything was fantastic. Compliments to the Chef! We will... More

Loved everything about this place! Cant wait to return. The greeting was so welcoming, the service wonderful and the food was delicious!! I cannot believe the veggies are grown right on the property. No wonder they are so fresh :-). The ambiance of a 1744 building was just so impressive to me snd i was fascinated with the history. How... More

We were on our way back to Gettysburg when we decided to check TripAdvisor for a fine restaurant near BWI Airport. We found Elkridge Furnace Inn to be a quaint, historic, eatery with a fine inventive menu and first class service. The luncheon selections were varied and well thought out and the presentation was first class. (The executive chef is... More

This was a treat for my Wife and I. We went with my Sister and Brother in Law and it was perfect! It is pricey, but worth every penny. I don't go for fancy often and I'm not easily impressed.

We got a Groupon for this place and thought we would try it. It's an expensive place (even with the groupon) for what we ordered. It's one of those places where people go to show off their fancy clothes and enjoy "rich people" atmosphere, cause for me the food was just average (not worth the money we paid).

Six of us went to EFI for Thanksgiving. This was our second year dining there for Thanksgiving and as usual, everything was very good. The menu choices were all delicious. Highly recommend the Elkridge Furnace Inn for any special occasion.

The food was marvelous but pricey. If your pocketbook allows, this is a great place to eat. They only have a service bar (not one to sit at) so singles are at a table.

Took my hubby for his b'day to this elegant building and gourmet restaurant. Before I comment on the food, I have to compliment the architecture of the building. It's is a 350 years old building, with an inviting cozy porch. The stairway and woodwork show the craftsmanship of colonial days. Not only the architecture of the building, the food is... More

Following a business meeting, we looked for a place for dinner that had a good rating, but didn't pay much attention to the price range. I love old inns, and the Elkridge Furnace Inn had all the charm of colonial inn. We enjoyed a great dinner by the fireplace. Not many folks here on a Wednesday evening, but it was... More
