Welcome to The Kings Contrivance Restaurant

The Kings Contrivance Restaurant is located on what was a 780-acre farm granted in 1730 by The Lord Baltimore to The Reverend James Macgill.

A stately Federal Period mansion was built on the present site. It burned to the ground and was rebuilt in the late 1890's. The Macgill family remained in the residence until the 1960's, when it was converted into its present form as a fine dining restaurant. The current ownership group has operated the restaurant since 1975.



 

The Kings Contrivance Restaurant is considered Howard County's finest restaurant, serving the very best in New American cuisine with European and Asian influences in a relaxed atmosphere. We are proud to have been voted Howard County's finest dining for over thirty years.
