Diner Reviews
  • "Service was great. Food not so much. Prime rib barely warm, asparagus charred nicely but served raw, hamburger cold and very messy, fries were lukewarm. Surely for the prices, they could do better. Way too noisy. A table cloth would help. Also non-drinkers pushed through quickly. We were in and out in 45 mins. Very annoying."

  • "We eat at GrillMarx on a semiregular basis. Our last visit last week left a bit to be desired. First we asked for bread and butter. The bread looked like it was whatever was left over from something else, all very small and mostly end pieces. But what really surprised me was that it was really stale. We didn't complain because our meal came out shortly thereafter. I ordered the french dip sandwich which should come on a baguette and a side salad. What I got was certainly not a baguette. The dressing for the salad was all oil, no vinegar. The au jus sauce for the french dip was a strange murky color and lukewarm. It was late, we were hungry and didn't have the energy to complain. Time to take a break from Grillmarx."

  • "My wife and I have been to GrillMarX several times in recent months and have been pleased with both the food and service. Salmon, shrimp & grits, ahi tuna, burgers - all good. This recent visit was with several family members and everyone felt the same. If in the Olney area, this is a great place to consider."

  • "Service was great! The reservation desk and hostess personnel were professional and welcoming. I ordered an unusual mixed drink and it was perfect. The crab dip appetizer was delicious, but came with sliced bread instead of the baguette on the menu. One of our party ordered surf and turf, the surf (crab cake) was good, but the turf (sirloin) ordered med. rare arrived medium plus. I ordered prime rib medium rare and it arrived still "on the hoof". My $24 entrée had only one vegetable, not even a side salad. Additional vegetables were a la carte starting a $5. For a nice upscale place, that seemed a tad tacky. No bread or rolls were provided. Very noisy."

  • "For a steakhouse, the sirloin steak was very disappointing. It was cooked well, but then sliced (for presentation?) so that by the time it was served it was cold....and dry. 3 people in our party of seven ordered the sirloin. All of them didn't like it. For the cost of the food at this restaurant, it should be perfect. Mixed vegetables were order as a side. It was all carrots...rock hard, a few peas. They brought more peas...they were cold. The service was great. The restaurant itself was lovely. And the manager was very helpful and very kindly replaced one of the dinners when made aware of the problem."

  • " Quite unexceptional. One thing to note . Oversize children's portions were good tasting but quite disturbing in size."

  • "My husband and I ate outside, on a event Saturday evening. Our server, Nick, was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. My husband had the Surf and Turf, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had the salmon. It was moist, perfectly cooked, and delicious. I had a raspberry lemonade cocktail that was perfect for a warm evening. We also shared the triple dessert sampler. A great way to have just a taste or two of things you might not have ordered in the larger size."

  • "excellent spinach dip to start. Good mixed drinks an wonderful service. Main dishes, excellent as always, shrimp and grits and ribs were the choices. Excellent"

  • "Our waitress was very aloof. Not unfriendly, but seemed like she was doing us a favor by checking on us. No eye contact. The manager acted similarly when we asked if we could sit in a booth. Good was very good, though. All four of us had something different and we each enjoyed our meal."

  • "Prior reviewers who commented on the noise were right. Though I had requested a quiet table, we were put in the noisy section behind the bar. The booths are somewhat quieter. The chicken and blue cheese wonton was very good; a fun experience. The steaks were a disappointment. One was overdone, the other underdone. The charring was not flavorful. The sides varied in quality; the grits were good; difficult to believe, but the baked potato had a strange flavor. The coffee, promoted as special, was not very good. Desserts were mediocre. We decided that we probably would go back, but that this wasn't a place that we would feel compelled to take visitors. Servers were good."

  • "The food was fantastic. We drove over 50 miles to try this restaurant and they EXCEEDED our expectations! Hats off the the Chef! The grits were out of sight! Everything was delicious. My husband had the Kona Ribeye - what can I say. The service was phenomenal. JR was great."

  • "Finally was able to check this out for dinner with a friend. I knew it was always busy and therefore high noise level, so the accomodation of my request for a table by the wall so my friend and I could chat was appreciated. The service was prompt and friendly but not obtrusive, and the waiter Alex answered all questions graciously and knowledgeably. We lingered after dessert for more chatting near closing time and were not made to feel like we needed to rush out. This is a wonderful addition to the restaurant offerings already in Olney, and I will definitely return soon - perhaps to dine outdoors this time."

  • "The Oysters and cocktails are fabulous. We also had the fish of the day and the filet -- both were quite good. There was no problem substituting the different sides. The restaurant is quite noisy so do not expect a quiet, romantic evening. Also, because it is in a shopping center, parking is not adequate."

  • "A great local place where the service is always tops. Spinach dip is awesome. Dinner was salmon and chicken. As always great flavors in meal."

  • "This place has delicious food! The salad that both my Dad and I had were delectable. I will say that the server was a bit preoccupied with making sure that they were set up for the dinner service. It was fine though,we did not have a negative experience. I had been there before and the service is usually right on!"

  • "I am a frequent visitor of Grill Marx in Olney, and have always considered it to be a great place to visit. Unfortunately this time it was a bad experience, and it happened on Father's Day. We went for Brunch buffet, and completed our entire first course before we got any drinks (Coffee and water). Then when they took our plates as we got ready for course# 2, but they also took our silver ware, and I had to go find silver ware with another waiter. Instead of giving me two newly rolled silver ware settings, he grabbed the silverware with his bare hands and handed them to me, totally unaware what he had just done. While we stood in line with our plates half full, we had to wait several minutes for new serving spoons...my eggs were cold."

  • "Have dined here numerous times, always enjoyable. Took over 90 minutes to get entrees. Server said kitchen staffing issues. Complained to manager, who denied any problems AND failed to buck up and take responsibility. Things happen in restaurants, and as an industry professional, I know that all too well. Management's refusal to take ownership of THEIR service issues....huge failure! Didn't ask for or expect comps, just a truthful explanation of the service disaster. "

  • "This used to be my favorite restaurant, but I had decided at least three visits ago that I was done with it. My granddaughter (8) asked to go there for her birthday, so of course we did. The food is mediocre - especially for the prices. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Typically the food and service area quite good. Although there were only a few people in the restaurant for brunch, service was slow and my food came out barely at room temperature. On the previous Sunday, for brunch, the food and the service were great."

  • "I thought this would be a nice restaurant to take my parents to. It was an awful experience. The noise level was so loud that the four of us could not carry on a conversation. The food was so-so. It was certainly not worth the assault on our eardrums, and we will not be back."

  • "My coworkers have been raving about this place for quite some time. Well, I finally had a chance to check it out. This place is nearly perfect. Great service, great food, and reasonable pricing. Don't go without a reservation though because this place is packed. GrillMarx is my newest place to frequent."

    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "The dining experience was really nice, friendly and our server was efficient and extremely kind. He remembered to place another order which we were to take home to our oldest child who had to work but could appreciate his meal when he came home that evening. However, the noise level is the only problem we don't care for since we have only been there three times in the past years for special occasions. If it was quieter, we could enjoy it more than we do now. "

  • "Most of the time the food is excellent. However on a couple of occasions we have gotten the same things and they were not very good. Perhaps they had a different chef on those days."

  • "This was my second time coming here, what had brought me back in the past was the food but after this visit what will bring me back is also our server. Jamel went beyond what was expected he quickly greeted us and took great care of all of us and ensured we were having a great dinning experience. He was attentive but not intrusive he knew just when to come and check. Jamel is added to the reasons of why I will be coming to dine here and not to mention the exceptional food and drinks. Thank You"

  • " Our waiter knew the wine list well and was able to give a spot on recommendation for my wife based on what she was looking for. He was attentive without hovering. The crab dip appetizer tasted very good but would have preferred more chunky crab and less stringy crab. We took his recommendation to eat the dip with the chips he brought instead of just the bread that it usually comes with. My wife's salmon was cooked perfectly. We will be returning here sometimes in the next few months."
