The Elkridge Furnace Inn, circa 1744, was originally a colonial tavern.  The Inn currently houses a fine-dining restaurant and a gourmet catering company specializing in weddings, social events and celebrations, and corporate meetings.  As a historic structure dating back to the mid-eighteenth Century, the Inn displays pieces of Maryland’s ancestry in its architecture, history, and location.  The Inn is located in Elkridge, MD, on the Patapsco River.  After serving its time solely as a tavern form 1744-1810, the complex was bought by brothers James and Andrew Ellicott, and a home for their family was built attached to the existing structure.

After being renovated in the late 20th Century, the Inn maintains its historical integrity through nuances such as original flooring, but also includes modern aspects in the design.  According to its website, “The interior rooms have been lovingly restored from colonial days, each by an individual designer, thereby giving The Elkridge Furnace Inn both a uniqueness and richness to the main structure.”

The Inn offers brunch, lunch, and dinner dining options, as well as small plate and gluten-free menu choices.   The Prix Fixe Menu is available until 6:30pm Tuesday-Saturday and Sunday 4-8pm for parties of six or less.  You can view these editions of the menu online here.
