A group of old friends gathered here since it was recommended by a friend. We had spiced shrimp appetizer and crab with potato rounds. Both were very tasty. The server was very attentive however, he neglected to give us the specials when we were seated. Everyone was ordering from the menu and I had glanced at the board as I... More

The fish and seafood are always fresh and deliciously prepared. If you are lucky enough to visit when the fried green tomatoes are on the list of specials, be sure to order them. Even if you don't like tomatoes you'll love these tasty treats with lump crabmeat in lemon caper butter sauce. The meatloaf, ribs and sandwiches are always fantastic.... More

I occasionally eat lunch or dinner at the Olney Grille and generally enjoy their food, service and atmosphere. The salads, sandwiches, crab cakes and daily dinner specials are generally a good choice. The Thai Chicken salad is one of my favorite salads, but other selections are good also. The Grille is seldom very crowded except on Friday and Saturday nights... More

Son always gets the Olney Grille sandwich, I love their specials, and husband gets the pork chops with the homemade applesauce. Salads are very good, service is excellent. We go here once a week. Best homemade dishes when I do not want to cook!

Very good food with daily specials. Hard to go wrong here. There is something on the menu for everyone, although my favorites are the oysters, crab-cakes & meatloaf. It is also kid-friendly.

Have eaten here a number of times. We live in a suburban restaurant wasteland. Their fresh fish is good and burgers are cooked as ordered and can be excellent. BBQ is fair. Service is efficient, to the extreme. You get the feeling they want you out as soon as you sit down. Best experience - eating at the bar. Restaurant... More

Not our first visit to this restaurant and might not come back for awhile. The grilled pork chops were dry, burnt, and basically over cooked. We had to send one back to the kitchen. The crab cake sandwich was also a flop; crab cake and bun fell apart so easily that it had to be eaten with a fork and... More

This was a return visit to this restaurant before going to a nearby theater. The food was excellent and came out of the kitchen rapidly. Service was good. The only issue is how busy this place is. 20 minute wait for a table and servers are crazed. But that is a sign of how much better the food is here... More

I went for happy hour with my husband and we were treated so poorly. The bar tender over charged us and when I let him know he acted like this was a nuisance! This seems to be more of a "regulars" place.
