This is one of my favorite "go-to" places for lunch. The food is consistently wonderful....salads, appetizers, sandwiches, entrees (I'm not a dessert person, but my companions who are testify the desserts are very good, too). The service is friendly and accommodating. The ONLY reason I didn't give a full 5-star rating was that the prices are a little high for... More

I have been to Olney Grille many times over several years. It is a nice looking pub which serves very good food at reasonable prices. That consistency is hard to beat. Expect a wait on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Local themed, spacious, clean and friendly restaurant. Daily appetizers, entrées and dessert specials add to an already varied menu. Good food and ample portioning. I highly recommend this restaurant that I personally visit at least twice a month for either lunch or dinner.

This is a good place to eat, moderately priced with a nice atmosphere. It's menu is fairly extensive with steaks seafood hamburgers, Soups and salads. I like the pulled pork barbecue sandwich and the crabcakes are above average. Their seafood is good but a bit expensive. The restaurant is popular with locals.

We had the crab soup which was fabulous, which could have been enough. It even had real crab in it. My wife had the pasta seafood salad which I tasted and wish I had gotten. I got the sausage, blackened chicken and shrimp over pasta; it was good but I wish I had salad. Everyone was nice and very cordial.... More

I had the one pork chop with sweet potato and homemade applesauce. Amazing dinner. As a rare treat, I took dessert. Strawberry shortcake is fantastic. Leave room for it!! I posted a photo of it.

Great sandwiches and very good service. A busy lunch hour, but our waitress was attentive and timely. Will definitely return.

The Olney Grille will never set the culinary world on fire but it has consistently good food and nice service. I had the steak and cheese ciabatta which was good. The fries could have been a little crisper. My dining partner had the roasted chicken which she thoroughly enjoyed. The staff was very friendly. I will come back again.

This is a traditional restaurant in Olney where you can eat some good "American" food...burgers, steak, fish...the normal stuff. The prices have gone up significantly and it has made the restaurant less popular with the normal crowd.
