This is a great place in Olney for a wide array of food. Not everything is great but they do have fresh fish which always seems to hit the mark. We recently came here for a quick bite. We weren’t super hungry so we shared some chicken wings and onion rings. The chicken wings here are very good, I highly recommend them, especially the old bay dry rub! My daughter got the plain pasta and I got a salad with Blue Cheese dressing. The dressing was a bit disappointing, didn’t have much of a taste so I got some of their peppercorn ranch which was much better. The restaurant is clean and the staff is very nice, overall a good spot if you are not quite sure what you want to eat.

Best restaurant to go to! The food is always really good, especially the sandwiches and crab bisque! Everyone who works there is super cool. The atmosphere is great as well, which make it such an enjoyable place to eat a meal!

Just left the Olney Grille. It has been our got-to for so many years. The food is awesome (great fresh fish, oysters on the half-shell!, daily specials) and the service is exemplary. So comfortable and a great place to dine and chill. Can't say enough good things about our home place.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here. Courteous and efficient service. Food was great, staff was warm, welcoming, and attentive. Mainstay of this region. Don’t come back much since I graduated High School and happy to see that this place is still quality, while still encapsulating that small town feel.

Staff and food are always amazing. Definitely a favorite from happy hour to family gatherings. Best crab cakes and prime rib around. Fish specials always fresh! My go-to for a quick lunch to-go or a special night out.

I have eaten here multiple times and the food and service has always been amazing! It’s hard to find a place that is always so good with literally everything on the menu being this great. The specials are always on point and you can’t beat how fast the food comes out without your server trying to rush your experience. Olney Grille is truely one of my favorites!

Seafood is killer here. Amazing crab cakes, bayou shrimp, and the fish tacos are my favorites. Don't sleep on the Cajun chicken sandwich or the pork chops though. During the holidays be sure to get some of their awesome pies!

A true Olney staple. Great food/drinks and great service. Plenty of options depending on what you’re in the mood for. Fish specials are always delicious and perfectly cooked. Highly recommend this place!

one of my favorite places in Olney, always has been. A great local spot where food and service is consistently good. I crave their crab bisque and we also love their potato skins and salads.

I ordered the crab bisque which was delicious. The fried oysters were really good as well. The Cesar salad was very fresh and crisp. The loaded baked potato wasn’t really loaded and was pretty small. I had to use my own sour cream for the potatoes because what they sent seemed to be sour. Which is why I gave 3 stars ⭐️

You only get one chance to make a first impression; today was my first visit to Olney Grille ... and my last. Service was OK but simple food was lacking in freshness and taste. We ordered two Cobb salads (pretty simple, right?) - the first warning sign was that both salad bowl and its contents were extremely cold leading me to think the salads had been made a day (days?) before and kept in the reefer for an extended period. Digging into the salad verified my fears: vegetable contents were limp, watery and tasteless. Many of the lettuce pieces had that brown appearance that comes from being in the reefer too long. Ham, chicken, cheese contents seemed to be OK but were so cold they assumed the same tasteless nature as the vegetables. I hoped the blue cheese dressing (house made according to the menu) could rescue the day for me but it was probably the mildest blue cheese dressing I've ever encountered; so the tasteless lunch continued. I guess the dressing is a matter of personal taste (I prefer a more intense blue cheese) but the salad itself was inexcusable. Given the poor attention to detail displayed in the prep/presentation of this simple salad, I would have no confidence in sampling any of the more complex items on the menu.

Wonderful environment and very affable service. The meals were crisp and delicious. Will clearly recommend this restaurant to my friends. Fair rates and generous portions. Keep it up.

Sliced grilled chicken sandwich was delicious. Old Bay fries were good but could have used more Old Bay


We live in Olney, and this is our go-to restaurant. Great food, good prices, great atmosphere, excellent service...a perfect neighborhood restaurant. Consistently excellent fresh fish (Salmon, Rockfish), superb steaks, crab bisque, and crab cakes. Many of our friends and neighbors also are frequent customers. This could be the best restaurant in Montgomery County, MD.
