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.

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
