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

Beautiful old home and very nice gardens start you in a good mood, but the extended politeness and courtesy of staff if OUTSTANDING.

The service is excellent and the food presentation is wonderful. In addition, the owner is hands-on and donates much time and money to worthwhile charities such as Johns Hopkins Pediatric Unit. The ambience is incredible and especially at Christmas, the décor is phenomenal. The food is very good, but portions are a little small but that is fine if you... More

If you like elegance and being treated like you're royalty, this is the place to go. We were greeted at the door, literally, and taken to our table immediately. It's a shame we weren't there for a special occasion because we would have received champagne on the house as the party at a nearby table did. The meals were excellent... More

Went there for a very belated anniversary dinner. As usual, the food was outstanding. We especially like the recommended wine with each dish. You can get a 3 ounce tasting rather than a full glass. It is a great way to try new wines without breaking the bank. The service is outstanding as well.

From the greeting when we entered to the moment we left, we could not have had better service. The staff is friendly, polite and extremely attentive. I ordered the Spinalis which is braised ribeye, bordelaise sauce, wilted spinach, roasted fingerling potatoes. The ribeye melted in my mouth and the bordelaise sauce was delicious. There was a nice serving of spinach... More

I just cannot say enough about the special lunch that my sister and I had here to celebrate her 60th Birthday! Donna Wecker arranged private seating on the front porch. It was simply perfect!

One of the reasons we like EFI is the unique twist they put on their menu items. The way the kitchen team can elevate any dish to make it special is why we continue to make this one of our "go-to" places. As some examples, if a dish has charcuterie as an ingredient, they make it in house. They grow... More
