Good tasty pub food with healthy choices

I like fried food as much as the next person. But I get frustrated when I go to pub places and only see quick fried options. The smoked Thai ribs are an excellent non-fried choice and the Asian slaw is tasty. We only went there for drinks and appetizers, so we didn't order much. Decent wine and... read more

Let me start by saying...the staff is very friendly, lots of warm smiles. The food was just okay! The fish tacos, shrimp and oysters all tasted the same, must of been the same seasoning they used on everything. The fries were very bland. The food was expensive for what it was. I would probably go back for drinks at the... More

The inside is nicely designed with a stone wall and polished wood. Several TVs with sports games, but not loud and overbearing like sports bars. If you're not in the bar, you won't be bothered by TV noise. Excellent burgers and huge salads. Friendly and fast service. Slightly higher price than other cafes, but food is worth the extra few...

My wife and I went out to dinner here last Friday night and it was a pleasant experience. Food was great, atmosphere was nice, and service was fast and efficient. So far, this is our favorite place in Olney, but we've only tried here and Grill Marx so far. I like going to Olney because there's a Cold Stone Creamery... 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

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, friendly and super-efficient. We all ordered something different and... 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.
