Innovative Maryland Creole Cuisine

Our Story

Ethel's Creole Kitchen was founded 20 years ago under the name "Ethel and Ramones." The restaurant is a prime example of organic growth. When we first opened, we served nothing but coffee and tea. As our clientele, grew so did our menu. After 10 years our little building didn't fit us anymore so we knocked out a wall and expanded to next door. Just last year we outgrew that expansion as well. That's when we decided it was time to really renovate the place!

Ethel's Creole Kitchen now offers many of the same great foods that made us so popular (don't worry you can still get a bowl of gumbo!), but we have added a few new culinary options in a wonderfully remodeled building. We made sure to build around the open kitchen model (Chefs Ed and Nick can still be seen making flames on the stove!) and incorporated some more of the New Orleans French Quarter feel (like second floor balcony dining and French doors that make indoor tables feel al fresco!). Come on in, see the new digs, and let the bon temps roulette, hon!
