Sisters Sandwiches and Such

Reviewed By abettel - Washington, DC

Pricey, above-average lunch fare served in a cramped, character-filled historic tavern on Georgia Avenue. Deserves the business over the chain eateries that dominate Olney and has a pleasant outdoor patio during the warm months. But half a sandwich and soup runs $10 while a Rueben or roast beef is just a hair less. So, more a treat than a daily stop. The Turkey Smasher and The Hottie are good, as is the chicken chili. Closed Sundays.

Grill Marx

Reviewed By travelingal2006 - Olney, Maryland

I've only had the prime rib here because it was so good the first time we went that I always order it now. The ONLY reason I gave a 4 and not a 5 is that this place is SO noisy. There is NO barrier between the bar area and the booths by it and this place seems to be a hang-out for the bar crowd. Not "rowdy"; just noisy. So go for the good food but not when you want a quiet and/or romantic evening.

You wouldn't expect the greatest sandwiches to be in a gas station restaurant. The prime beef sandwich with angry sauce is the best!!! The Angry Rachel is also good! Give it a try!

When we eat Chinese food, this is where we go. My wife likes the Kung Po Chicken and I am a fan of the Mushi Pork. My brother-in-law usually orders the steamed dumplings. There is a full bar in the back where the carry out is. Some weekends can be very busy so expect to wait. Although I have never ordered it, we never have been here without seeing someone ordering the Peking Duck. Carved at your table. Servings sizes are ample and tea is always served.

We had a great time here Saturday night. Our friends brought us here for dinner before a show. The action was lively and the service was friendly and prompt. I enjoyed the Fish Tacos with chips and salsa. My girlfriend ordered the half baby back...MoreThanks, Ronsin! We appreciate that you took the time to leave us a review. Glad you enjoyed everything!

Olney Ale House

Reviewed By Travelingwithgoblins - Falls Church, Virginia

Our family enjoyed a relaxed and delicious lunch at the Olney Ale House. The beer selection was great, and we especially liked their ribs, fries and coleslaw. The best part was our server, who gave us good recommendations, offered to let us try the beers we were deciding among, and overall made us feel warmly welcome!

Ricciutis Kitchen

Reviewed By vwc20841 - Boyds, Maryland

We went to Ricciuti's on the recommendation of a good friend who frequents this place a lot. This restaurant is housed in a vey old home with lots of wonderful rooms tucked here and there. Since the dining is in several different rooms upstairs and downstairs, the noise level is minimal, making conversation easy and enjoyable while dining. The wait staff was very pleasant, not too busy but attentive. Our food was brought out in a timely fashion as we were attending a theater show and had to be out by a certain time. We made it with about 15 minutes to spare. Our dinners were delicious, lovely Italian fare, reasonable prices.

Pad Thai and Tom Yum soup was wonderful!!! The Tim Yum was full of chicken and mushrooms and the seasoning was perfect. The portion size was large. It's a very tiny place and no need to dress up! Very casual.
