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.

The daily specials are excellent, I especially like the salmon, perfectly seasoned and cooked. Salads are very fresh. Sandwiches are quite good, and i love their applesauce side. Wonderful iced tea. I have never had a bad meal in the 10 years I've been dining there.

My son took me here for lunch. I had a Cuban sandwich, which was good but not great. Not quite pressed thin enough for me. Nice atmosphere—not too loud. Friendly staff. Nice selection of salads, soup, and sandwiches.

Crab soup is the reason we go to the Olney Grill. It is chunky with ingredients, creamy in consistency, and absolutely delicious.

It's been over 3 years since I reviewed Olney Grille and it's still a favorite, being popular with us locals, whether at 5:00 or later. I continue to enjoy their tasty crab cakes, seafood pasta and Reuben sandwiches. Service is generally good although some servers are better than others (e.g., refilling water, bringing bread without being asked). Cushioned seats are... More

I have had more meals here than any other place in Olney. This is the heart and soul of Olney at the core. Friendly, attentive wait staff. Seafood is always good. Have eaten almost everything on the menu. Even the meatloaf is 5-stars. Many ways to describe the Grille. The bar area reminds me of "Cheers" - the staff and... More

With so many fast food choices in Olney, it was great to find a place to get a well-made, fresh meal. We were seated quickly and took our time looking at the menu. The waiter was patient and attentive. The pork chops were perfect, arriving hot and well-appointed. This was a meal that I enjoyed without reservation. I often have... More
