“Like dining with family”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

This is an Olney institution. Fresh fish dishes are our favorites. Appetizer specials change frequently but oysters on the half shell are wonderful when available. We also like the spicy spring rolls.

Dinner salads with shrimp, chicken or salmon are great and make a complete meal.

As others point out, it can get crowded on weekend evenings but the wait is worth it. Nothing fancy; just good food and good service. Wine selection is limited but they have @ 4 beers on tap.

Eat at the bar if you're in a hurry.

“Always dependable, always satisfying”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

This is a very dependable, always satisfying resaurant in Olney. The seafood specials are always fresh and delicious. The service is always friendly and prompt. The atmosphere can get a bit loud on a Friday or Saturday night, but not to the point of lessening your enjoyment. Unless you get a booth, the seating at the tables can be quite close, but it is a "neighborhood joint." The bill at the end of the night for a family of four always seems a bit high, but it's always an enjoyable evening.

“Very comfortable and good”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

I found this to be a really good place for lunch. I was very pleased with my lunch and have to especially note that they have the best cole slaw. I would recommend this place for lunch.

“Nice Salads and Sandwiches”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

For the past five years I've been going to the Olney Grille about once a month with friends and work colleagues. My favorite foods here are Thai chicken salad, several of the the sandwiches, the crab cakes and the dinner rolls. Early bird specials can be a good choice. Stick to the basics in terms of the menu. I like the cozy atmosphere and the reasonable prices. The service is usually good, but can be only adequate when crowded.

The Olney Grille can be very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights, so it's best to avoid eating here on those nights between 5:30-7:30 PM. Recommended for lunch and the early bird specials on weeknights.
