Our favorite restaurant was also the best place for our wedding. Not the "cookie cutter food" you find at most wedding receptions. The Inn is tucked away and quiet, very romantic- Great place for the wedding photos.

We had our wedding reception at Elkridge Furnace Inn on June 9, 2018. Where do I even begin? We worked very closely with Bethany who did an amazing job. She is extremely organized and has so many great recommendations on everything that can be done with the venue. We used the house for the cocktail hour and the large white tent behind the house for the reception. Bethany and I emailed back and forth many times about ideas and things that we wanted to add to our reception and she kept track of everything! The food was UNBELIEVABLE. We told Dan, the owner and chef that we wanted to have a Pennyslvania inspired buffet station and a Maryland inspired station and he came up with an incredible menu that included mini crabcakes, Old Bay cheddar biscuits, filet tips, kielbasa, and cheesesteaks. When we had our food and cake tasting, we did not change one item on the menu he proposed because we loved it all and we had so many comments from our guests on how great the food was! Everything about the reception was amazing. The groomsroom and bridal suite were a great place to take a break before the reception began. We had a personal hostess, Vada, that catered just to my husband and I the entire evening and she was amazing! Thank you, Vada! The guests raved about the beauty of the historic house and grounds, the dinner service, and the entire atmosphere. When my husband and I first walked into the reception area, I was stunned at how beautiful the venue looked. It was so much more than I could have ever imagined! I cannot recommend enough Bethany, Dan, and the entire team at Elkridge Furnace Inn. The service was absolutely top-notch and worth every penny. They made our day seamless and allowed us to customize the venue to fit what we had envisioned for our reception. Thank you so much to everyone at Elkridge Furnace Inn! It was a reception that we will never forget!

We had our wedding on 4/27/18 at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. It was absolutely fantastic. Bethany was amazing and helpful through the whole planning process and the day. The food was exceptional. My guests raved about the brisket on the BBQ station. We really loved that everything was setup when we got there on the day of. The staff and Chef Wecker are really wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend them for other couples.

My wife and I had our wedding here on 4/21/18 and, because of the location and efforts of the staff at Elkridge Furnace Inn (EFI) it was perfect! When we arrived at 5pm everything was already setup for us (we had dropped off decorations the night before) and the staff was incredibly attentive to our needs! When we arrived an hour early with the groom and bridal parties to take pictures, they even had beer and wine waiting for us! When it was time for cocktail hour, the waiters were effortlessly passing out Hors d'oeuvre (which were delicious - especially the pesto mushrooms!) and making sure everything was in order. The location really is beautiful, and we were incredibly lucky that it was a beautiful spring day - pictures by the Patapsco river with the trees in bloom were a must! The interior, a 18th century design, was of course also beautiful. For dinner, we had decided on a buffet style, with a French and Maryland themed station. The food at both was a hit! The guests especially enjoyed the crab cakes, fried oysters and beef bourguignon! We had ordered mini-cupcakes and wedding cake (of course!) and both were exceptional! I want to give a special shout out to the staff, in particular to Donna and Bethany for helping us plan our special day, through all the emails, meetings, tastings, and other conversations leading up to the big day, and making sure everything was setup and answering last minute questions day-of. To the executive chef, Chef Wecker who's cooking was amazing, and even stopped by our sweetheart table to make sure everything was OK. Also to the bartender Theresa, she was a hit with all of the guests and was spot on with the drinks! Thank you again Elkridge Furnace Inn! The location and service truly helped make our wedding day perfect, and my wife and I are

Love, love, love this place! The food is amazing. Chef says he has thousands of recipes in his head, and he does! For our event, we combined Jewish and Hungarian. The result was yummy! Bethany was great to work with -- friendly, helpful, calm. She always had time to answer questions and make suggestions. There was no problem extending the timing for our wedding -- in part because there were no other events the day of our wedding. Her day-of staff was excellent, especially Vada as she took care of last minute clothing emergencies, jittery nerves, and everything else! While the buildings, grounds and history of EFI are amazing, most of the event itself was in a 12-month tent. This was not a problem! We had part of the building and grounds to ourselves; the tent was heated, had a dance floor, chandeliers, windows, and plenty of space. We were very comfortable and felt totally taken care of! We ate and drank well and danced the night away!
The Elkridge Furnace Inn responded with the following comments:
Loved the purple...but mostly the beautiful, thought provoking messages you had placed around the Manor House. Unique and Meaningful! And thanks for the wonderful review! It was our joy and pleasure to help you make your Wedding so special. Chef Dan and I are proud of our staff and are glad you were well cared for. Come back to see us when you can...and don't forget to send pictures!

We used Elkridge for our wedding reception. They provided the catering, cake, booze, reception staff, and guest party favors (truffles). What can you say about Elkridge? The venue is a historic building built in 1835 set on the site of the old iron works that ran from 1751 to 1873. The house is beautiful and the location is so peaceful (we did not have our wedding there but you can; they have an awesome outdoor location). Chef Wecker and his staff create the most amazing food and his daughter does awesome cakes and pastries! Matt and Bethany helped us organize our event. They were very easy to work with. We loved all the food we tasted, from the appetizers through the main courses to the cake. The day of was seamless. The Elkridge staff did an amazing job of setting the place up and managing the cocktail and dining hours. Their staff was courteous and fun. It could not have been a more perfect day and experience. The best part is that they are a year-round restaurant so we can go back again whenever we feel like it! Use this venue!

I could not asked for a better experience. The staff was very responsive to my needs and made my wedding perfect. I highly recommend the Elkridge Furnace Inn because the value and how easy they make the wedding process. They provided our food, cake, tables, linens, etc. We didn't have to do a thing besides contact a florist and show up!

WOW! WOW! WOW! Choose the Inn! They are amazing! They went above and beyond helping us make our day perfect. They met with us countless times, answered our thousands of annoying and overly detail obsessed emails and delivered the perfect wedding! THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! The staff is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Bethany worked with us non-stop with a smile on her face the whole time. One of their bartenders, Theresa, stayed late far after the wedding ended to make sure one of our elderly guests made it home safely. She even called the cab company to demand that they came in a timely manner and let the guest wait in her car where it was warm. She even offered to drive them home herself. That's amazing. That's caring about people. That's what the Inn is all about. They care and it shows. They do their job better than anyone you've ever seen and they truly love it. I would do it all again and choose the Inn every time.
The Elkridge Furnace Inn responded with the following comments:
Everything was splendid for a truly memorable Winter Wedding, Kendall. Loved all your decor with the evergreen theme. We were happy to provide the setting and food for your Magical Day. Thanks for the compliments! We'll pass them on to our staff... All the best with your new marriage!

I cannot say enough about the wonderful wedding team at the Elkridge Furnace Inn! I wanted an all-in-one venue because I found wedding planning overwhelming. From the moment I visited and saw the beautiful gardens, lovely tent, and heard about the creativity of the chef and their use of ingredients they grow themselves, I knew we had found our venue! THE FOOD: We designed a rather unique menu that would showcase my Norwegian and my husband's Filipino heritages, and the EFI team took it and ran! We got soooo many compliments on our delicious food. THE DAY: The EFI staff work very hard to make sure that the Bride and Groom actually ENJOY their wedding day. There were two ladies assigned to follow us around and make sure we had samples of all the food and a rotation of wine, gin and tonics, and water throughout the entire night. It allowed us to focus on the day and the guests but still get our food and drink needs met :D Plus the wedding coordinator was on site the whole day to make sure everything went smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a single thing -- they handled everything from working with the DJ to getting our table decorations just perfect to making sure everyone was in the right place with the right stuff at the right time. How many brides can say they actually RELAXED on their wedding day?? But that's exactly what I did! THE VENUE: One word: stunning! We had tulle and fairy lights, and it looked like a scene out of a fantasy storybook. With a wedding in November we weren't sure if we would do inside or outside until a couple of days before. We decided to have it inside, and I'm so glad that we did, because it was just beautiful! The EFI staff set up lovely lighting and an alter area, and everyone was able to enjoy the ceremony in a comfortable temperature. Bottom line: The EFI is amazing at what they do, and I couldn't imagine having had our wedding anywhere else!

Thank you so much to Donna and Chef Daniel were absolutely amazing! I could not imagine getting married anywhere else. The service from the first time I called to schedule a tour of the grounds until after the wedding was over was absolutely amazing. The venue itself is stunning- pictures are perfect both inside and outside. We got married in July at EFI and were worried it would be too hot in the tent. As soon as we arrived, our guest were complaining that it was too cold in the tent! (although it heated up thanks to our DJ and all of the dancing!) . The attention to detail that the staff has is amazing. The day of coordinator and service team were beyond words. They were always available to answer questions and spend as much time as was needed to go over any details for the wedding- from food questions, to timelines, decorations, or billing questions. Our guests could not stop raving about the food! Chef did an amazing job with the food, and helped us find food options that would work with all of our guests and their dietary needs. My husband and I are so happy that we chose EFI as our wedding venue, and we cant thank Donna and Chef enough for making it a day we will never forget.

We hosted a small wedding in the Manor House (~35 people) rather than the outdoor tent or garden area. It was absolutely beautiful, the staff were super attentive and the food was amazing! We will be back for our anniversary!
