    Fantastic atmosphere, but lackluster food. I will be back for the expansive beer list, but will definitely be sticking to a simple fries and a burger order rather than the fancier entrees.

    Grilled portobello burg w fries is way to go (with one of their craft beer on tap, natch).

    Lots of great beers on draft, a nice outdoor seeting area, and the inside has a warm comfy feel to it.

    It's an "ale house," so there's just beer & wine, no liquor. Great choice of beer; 1/2 price burgers on Tues. Small bar w/ non-hidef TV. Good outdoor seating.

    The food was AmAzing!!!! There were 7 of us and they put us in this private little corner in the other room, so it was very private!! Highly recommended. P.S. I was not charged 20% gratuity.

    The Olney Ale House has the best french fries I've ever had. The beer menu is impressive and the burgers are phenomenal.

    Been here 25+ times stung by the unexpected 20 percent gratuity for 6 or more. Disincentive for waitstaff. Service was bad. 20% not mentioned anywhere on menu: Read more

    Draft beer only. Ambience is great; service is very good but the food is awful. Steam shrimp is more like boiled shrimp. Quesadilla uses frozen chicken with no flavor. It is a shame.

    Fish and chips a little on the greasy side but tasty.

    6 or more? Be careful of SNEAKY 20% gratuity. Our family of 6 eats here all the time; can't remember this happening before.

    The bartender while we were here was really inattentive. The service was so poor we had a beer and left

    This is not a brewery. It's a tap bar.

    No longer a loyal patron! Uncaring, unconcerned and unseen owner! Received a bad oyster….the owner never apologized and rather she tried to charge us. The owner takes no ownership for her business.
