Diner Reviews
  • "We had a lovely meal during Restaurant menu this week. Congrats the creators for the salmon with cilantro and green onion risotto. Yum, yum, yum. Normally I do not enjoy sweet cocktails, but the Parker Peach infused drink was light and refreshing. Our server, Holly, was very attentive without being overbearing."

  • "Food and service were excellent as always. For Arlindton, the Ambiance is quite good. The only drawback in the main dining area is the noise level. At the time we dined,7 PM,the restaurant was a bit more than half full,but still somewhat loud.If the area were divided more,the noise level would be more pleasant."

  • "Our guest wanted something Arlington special. Since he was going to San Antonio, we decided Mexican was out, and our favorite restaurant came to mind. the immediate service was attentive but quiet. The waitress was knowledgeable of beverages and helped us select. The bruschetta is by far the best in the metroplex. Then, the chicken fried steak even beats the one at Z Tejas in Austin. The Shrimp and Grits...well...the chefs in New Orleans would be jealous. Great meal, great service, and we shall return."

  • "Ate there before a concert at AT&T Stadium and was delighted to find out about the free shuttle service if you spend $40. I ordered the scallops which were huge and very good! However when the hostess seated us there were no menus so it was about 5 minutes before we got one menu and five more minutes for the second one. We were on a bit of a schedule so we were disappointed when it took so long to take our order. Had wine by the glasss and it didn't taste fresh but we were in a hurry so I didn't send if back. Tuna salad was so so--a little overlooked. Had to walk back from concert. Driver did not choose a good drop off spot. It was gridlock after thd show. Not sure the scallops made up for everything else being so lackluster."

  • "I wish I had better things to say about Olenjack's Grille, especially after reading some pretty good reviews. The food was average and not well-described in the menu (mine was unexpectedly spicy). Drinks were pricey and took a really long time to arrive. However, we were there before a major concert and the staff was clearly slammed. Our waitress was very sweet when she would come around and seemed fairly stressed out. I did appreciate that you could park your car there and walk to AT&T Stadium, if you left a receipt for $40+ on your dash. It is probably a better experience when they are less busy, but it got the job done!"

  • "Don't waste your time/money. There were some decent menu items such as the shrimp small plate, but overall the food was mediocre at best. The ambiance was nice but probably because we were the only diners on a Thursday evening."

  • "My husband and I went here for dinner. Some of the dishes are pricey, but you don't get a good portion size. The food was tasty and the presentation nice. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food selection was excellent as sufficient options were available to allow all of our large group to select different meals, not planned, which elevated everyone's appreciation when the food quality surpassed the exotic descriptions on the menu, inclusive of the excellent salads pre-entree. A good time was had by all."

  • "This is a great place to enjoy a meal before an event at AT&T stadium or before a Texas Rangers Game. The food is excellent--great seasonings, nice portions. Extra bonus in that they keep the bar open late for when you return from the event. Shuttle service provided too."

  • "We took my brother and his wife out for dinner at Olenjacks. They live in Dallas and are always taking us to great places over there. So glad we took them to Olenjacks. We all enjoyed it very much and it was like being at the places we go with them in Dallas, but close to our home here in Arlington. Will go back again!"

  • "There were three in our party. Our server was helpful and attentive. My only issues were with the menu. First, the menu online is a little different than what we saw when we got there, so be aware of that. One of us got the scallops and they were good, but VERY spicy. The menu and the server did not make that clear. Another got the ribs, which he said tasted good, but they required much more work to get off the bone than they should have. I had the porkchop with garlic broccoli and asparagus. It was very good. I expected a more relaxed and laid back "grill" experience. This is a very upscale environment with good, well priced food and decent portions."

  • "We have dined at Olenjack's since it opened and have have had meetings and birthday parties there. We enjoy it very much. We were there saturday night and were greeted at the front door by the manager, David Pappas. Also like the addition of the desert tray and addition of the guitar player. Thanks for being there!

  • "Really expected to see better service among your staff. Food came out slow and the server did not move very quickly specially for the initial drinks. Been there before and first experience was good. After this visit, not sure if we will be back."

  • "The food at Olenjacks is delicious and the service was excellent. Sarah was our server who exceeded our expectations. Will definitely come back."

  • "Pork Chop was great. Shrimp and grits was very, very tasty. It would have been greatly improved if the chef had taken the time to take the tail shells off the shrimp. Shrimp embedded in food like that should be completely shelled. Desserts were delightfully decadent,chocolaty and tasty. Wine list was very reasonably priced. Pulled pork "small plate" was huge, and also very tasty. We would visitr again and recommend Olenjack's to anybody."

  • "This is a nice local neighborhood restaurant with food better than expected given the restaurant type. Howewer, based on finiding this restauramt in OpenTable, we expected to be going to a more formal fine dining expereince, which this reaturamt definitely is not."

  • "We had a wonderful time at Olenjacks. The food was outstanding, our server was efficient, friendly and most of all knowledgeable. He suggested some foods based on our tastes and he was right on. We found the atmosphere to be relaxed and you can come in casual clothes. That did not diminish the excellent food and service."

  • "Uninspired food was served lukewarm, not a good combination. This dining experience left me wondering about all the good reviews-even from D Magazine. We found it to be very disappointing and would not recommend it to anyone. Sorry Olenjack's."

  • "Atmosphere - liked the waiting area: felt like a warm library, bar area is also attractive. Dining room is ok - good, kind of stepped up coffee shop tables. Liked having the outside courtyard area to sit in. Food - loved some of the dishes and not so much on others. the tilapia that was recommended was good, but not a standout. would get the sweet potato pasta w/ mushrooms or the chicken pasta and definitely the grits. Also loved the brushetta! House wine was decent. Will recommend and go back!"

  • "We've been a huge fan of Olenjack's ever since it opened, but Mother's Day Brunch this year was VERY dissappointing. There were very few entree and side options and if you wanted a waffle, you had to wait in a very long line omelette line just to get one. The dessert table was pitiful. At $30+ a head, if you're going to reduce the options by this much, the quality better be very good. IT WASN'T!"
