Ellicott Mills Brewing Company

If you're not already familiar with Ellicott City, it started out as a Quaker settlement back in 1772, and boasts the oldest standing B&O Railroad station. It is also home to many unique shops and restaurants. One of which is Ellicott Mills Brewing Company. They've been around since 1997, brining a little bit of Germany to this historic town, specializing in Central European style lagers. The food also matches the brewing styles, with a liittle bit of everything for everyone. While the beer may lure us in, if there are crab cakes on the menu, we'll find them! While hard to pass by all of the German tavern fare on the menu, we stuck to our guns and gave them a shot. Read along to see what we thought!


Stanford Grill

The Stanford Grill is a relatively new location in Columbia, having opened up about a year or two ago.  As they say, food is their passion, and they pride themselves on fresh, handpicked ingredients, prepared in an open-air kitchen.  Unless you've heard about it, you may not even know where this place is, seeing as how it is tucked away behind the trees.  But once you find it, you'll be greeted with great ambiance and a culinary adventure.  So how did the crab cakes turn out?  Read along and see for yourself!
