Stopped in for a business lunch. Service was friendly and efficient throughout. i tried the broiled crab cake and it was decent, not the best I have had, but good. Nice local place for a nice lunch. No complaints. Decent Value.

The food is really good, cute place. The fries are really good. The wait staff could be alitte more attentive, you shouldn't have to ask for water or soda refills!

Trolley Stop is good old fashioned home cooking. Big portions...friendly staff (some are family members)...in a quaint setting just outside of old Ellicott City. I've gone with adult friends and with small children. Definitely kid friendly with a big basket of toys and coloring books.

I took my two grandchildren for lunch after the train museum visit. The staff were very receptive to young children. The food was good quality, generous portions and comfort type food. The building has great charm.
