Yummy crab cakes!

We were taken to the Olney Grille by family members when we visited the DC area. We had reservations and were seated quickly. At the recommendation of our hosts, we tried the crab cakes and found them to be the best we have ever eaten (Mind you, we are not natives but they were delicious!) Had... read more

Other places have arrived in Olney but the Grille is still a favorite. Prime Rib is fabulous when they have it on the menu - order early, it sells out. Love the crabcakes, cream of crab soup, and the Grilled Steak Salad. They have something for everyone - meatloaf to seafood. I recently sat at the bar to dine as... More

I dined here recently for lunch with two friends. We arrived early and were easily able to choose a table in a quiet area so we could chat. One friend ordered a bowl of the soup of the day - tortilla soup - which was a large serving. She seemed to enjoy it, but it looked more like broth with... More

Wonderful combination of American, Italian and Thai food. Something for everyone. The entire menu is ready for carry out in less than 30 minutes. Great desserts and a variety of appetizers. Sit at the bar for good food and conversation. A favorite of the Locals.

This is Olney's top American-food restaurant. We dine in and out, but more often than not, we get a steak craving and call in an order. As it's not really a steak place per se, the choices are limited. There are a couple of traditional steak cuts, however the Tai steak dinner is probably your best bet. Even on a... More

Olney Grille has been around for a long time offering essentially the same menu with few changes. Even the daily specials are variations of cooking styles on the main menu. When this is your approach, consistency is critical. Honestly, my wife and I have not been here for awhile because our dishes were spotty. Also, for some reason, the wine... More

I was craving chicken wings- not buffalo, just regular baked wings. They have them. I like the wings with the three parts, since I'm a bone chewer and I like the spices on the crispy skin. They didn't understand what that meant. How can you not know if the wings you're cooking have three parts or are separated into two... More

The Olney Grille is one of the better places to eat in Olney. Some of the dishes are truly superior. The Grilled stead Salad is excellent. The Apple Smoked BLT is much better then one would expect. The ribs are great. In my opinion, it's the Dan's Crab Bisque that puts this place on the map. The atmosphere is very... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 10 years and have appreciated the friendly, efficient staff and consistently good food. Be sure to check the specials on the board when you check. My only suggestion is to add some variety to the menu since it appears to not have changed after many years.

Good, but not excellent food. The atmosphere is nice, and so is the service. Not one of the top 3 in Olney, but top 6 for sure.
