A real find -- outstanding service and terrific food.

I had enjoyed dinner at the Olney Grille two years ago and returned recently with a family group of eight. Really nice experience. Our waitress dazzled us by reciting an extensive list of specials, each described in detail, using no notes. Throughout the meal, she was there when we needed her... read more

Started with the Crab Bisque Soup. The taste was good but needed a few more lumps of crab. The appetizer was Crab & Spinach Dip served with tortilla chips - hot and a nice start for several people. Two of us had the Fish Tacos, 2 soft shells with grilled Mahi Mahi, a cabbage slaw and salsa. Just OK, the... More

Definitely a nice surprise. The Thai ribs and pulled pork were excellent. Nice salad options and good beers on tap. I did think it was a little pricey but I am new to the area so I could be mistaken. Would go back.

Probably the best food in Olney if you keep it simple. Nice, comfy booth seating and a very local crowd make this a hard table to snag on weekends. Fair prices.

So many places these days seem to be hit-or-miss. Go one night and it's loud, go the next week and the food is good but service isn't. NOT at Olney Grille! We've been here several times, and this will be our new Olney restaurant. Cozy (even with the bar and TVs). Great service and food. I have the prime rib... 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

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 we not been guests,... 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
