A friend and I had breakfast here before walking a stretch of the Trolley Trail. I had the Greek Omelet and my friend had the Wisconsin Omelet. The food was fabulous however the coffee was less than adequate. To the Manager : Please spend a little extra and buy a better grade of coffee.

Stopped here for lunch after a hike with a group of people. After hearing about the awful flooding just a few months ago I was glad to see the place apparently thriving. The lunch menu had extensive sandwich options, as well as soups and salads. I had the Trolley #9 sandwich--smoked turkey and swiss. They were generous with the ingredients... More

The only place that was open in EC past Saturday. Lots of rednecks amongst diners and bikers at the bar. Average food. Girl who sat us down was cheerful, the old haggard lady who served us needs a change in occupation

My friends from my sister's church weren't kidding when they assured me and my sister that Trolley Stop Restaurant not only served great food but sizeable portions as well. A group of about nine of us went there one Saturday evening after Mass. The first floor was packed with patrons, so we were seated on the quieter second-floor level. Every... More

Sunday night, looking for a place to feed my family. My kids are college age and I thought we should try the trolley stop. I was pleasantly surprised. Not too crowded, but by no means dead. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the food was great. Huge portions. My turkey reuben was perfect and everyone else was happy too. Prices were... More

The Trolley Stop is open even with the EC flood. You can get there on MD 144/ Frederick Road. If you like bacon, this is the place to eat breakfast! Great service. I had the eggs, bacon, English muffin and eggs over easy. All done just as we asked. My wife likes the eggs dry and they nailed it. We... More

After the torrential floods that destroyed downtown Ellicott City on July 30th, 2016, my wife and I decided that we would do our part to help out those businesses still open after the floods. We found out that The Trolley Stop was one of those businesses still open for patrons. Although we had to work our way around through Catonsville... More

Pleasant environment for lunch. Very good service and good sports bar food. Limited parking but nice place in Ellicott City. Unfortunately, the recent flooding in Ellicott City likely damaged this restaurant significantly.

If you like eclectic, no-frills, bar-restaurants, this is a good place. Beastly hot outside, with doors open, our tables and meals were joined by several flies. The good conversation and food not swayed. Busy at a mid-week lunch. Noise is tolerable; bar and television noise unnoticeable. Home-style cooking; generous servings for the price. Will return.
