We have eaten here many years ago and I still remember the dish, a sinful, rich and creamy crab au gratin. Yum! It was packed the night we were there and last night we walked past it as part of an Ellicott City Ghost and Spirits Tour. There is a residual ghost there whom diners have reported seeing. An interesting night.

Great pub for thirsty brew hounds. An amazing rotating selection of brews on tap. Great flights for sampling. Also- lesser known- flights of scotch or whiskey if you'd like to taste the differences. Live music that has yet to disappoint. A perfect pub atmosphere in downtown Ellicott City- a sweet historic district- with ample parking across the street behind the log cabin. Don't come hungry though... Stop and grab dinner along the Main Street first at Rumor Mill at the bottom of the hill, or Ellicott Brewing Company across the street... food here is insignficant.

This is an old pub that is also a Ravens nest. So it is a great place to go to watch a game with Ravens fans. They really get into it on game day. Food is ok. It is bar food. Good selection of beer. All in all a fun place to watch a game.

Went for drinks on a Friday night - didn't order and food. Place is pretty small with an assortment of high top tables and some regular tables. All service is at the bar, no waitresses.

It was a mellow crowd, mix of young and old as most beer bars seem to attract. The had at least 10 maybe 15 beers on tap and many bottles. The had a good variety on tap to suit different people's taste, IPA's, stouts, Belgiums, wheaty stuff etc.

They had an acoustic duet going that was nice and not over powering, you could still talk a slightly above normal speaking volume.

Nice place - I'd go back if I'm around again.

An amazing beer selection on tap! They constantly rotate their tap selection through about 75 different types, and have hunbdreds in bottles. Typically they have music on Friday and Saturday night. Friendly bartenders and patrons.
