Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "While the dinner and lunch service is awesome, the brunch is not."

  • "I took my parents there for the Father's Day brunch and it was phenomenal! We were very pleased with the food selection and waitstaff. My husband and I dine in here at least once a month so we know how awesome it is."

  • "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!"

  • "Shrimp appetizer is one of the best dishes I have had in many years. Just this one dish is worth the visit"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "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."

  • "Located just 1/2 mile from stadium, the offered a great buffet including their standard menu. Then they drive you to the game in a high class bus. When we returned we just walked back. Food was very tasty, and service very friendly. Loved it."
    Dined on 9/8/2013
  • "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."

  • "Everything was excellent. The prices aren't outlandish. Great place to go with friends."

  • "Wonderful food. Place packed prior to event. If you can put up with the noise, the food is the best in the area. Shuttle to game site is a plus."
    Dined on 8/31/2013
  • "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."

  • "I saw great reviews but when we got there the place but virtually empty and the patrons were all over 65 - the food was ok, but I likely would not dine there again."

  • "Excellent selection and quality of food. There is something on the menu to satisfy everyone's palate."

  • "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."

  • "Average Food, terrible service and waitstaff attitude. Was my bday and received not even an acknowledgment."

  • "The food was incredible - the best hamburger, oysters, drinks, and desserts. We can't wait to go out."

  • "We had a wonderful meal for Father's Day and we all enjoyed it immensely. This isn't the first time we've been for a Mother's Day or Father's Day buffet. We come back because it is consistently good food and service."
    Dined on 6/16/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/5/2013
  • "Our waiter forgot about us. My moms vegetable were cold Mine were Luke warm. We waited an hour for our food. The food was great Once reheated but the service really put a damper on the Evening and we received no apology. This was the 1st time this happened Think the waiter was new."
    Dined on 6/1/2013
  • "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 had made arrangements to have dinner with another couple, and chose to meet at Olenjack's. Our experience here has been excellent, and they did not disappoint. The food, the service and the quite atmosphere made for another memorable evening."
    Dined on 5/24/2013
  • "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!"
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "It's the second time i have gone to Olenjack's on a major holiday. (Mother's day, Easter) It was a mistake i will never repeat. They have to learn what a buffet is supposed to be. The main courses were fine but the dessert table was a disaster. The bread pudding that was advertised was awful ( my wife's favorite dessert by the way). There was no sauce of any kind. I didn't partake from the breakfast area but the lines were long and not clearly defined so it seemed too much of a hassle. Comments from other tables around us " the waffles are the best dessert they have" and "They were out of everything" suggests a breakdown in service."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "The noise in the room was probably made louder than usual because of the not business dressed Chesney rowdies. Therefore, the service was much slower than usual. Part of the food arrived cold and not the right order, but the management made sure that was corrected. Had cone for a Mother''s Day (night before) celebration and it turned out okay."
    Dined on 5/11/2013
  • "Mother's Day Brunch. Poorly executed with two buffet lines - One more Sunday Dinner like, the other eggs and waffles to order. The eggs to order line was under sized and under staffed. The line was long and the wait painful. The Sunday dinner line had nothing special. The meats were dry and unpalatable. Smoked salmon served with butter - no cream cheese - go figure! Could not order from the brunch menu - no graciousness whatsoever. Too late to go to another restaurant. Far too pricey at $28.00 for the quality and caliber of food. I've had some memorable meals at Olenjack's, but the last few have really been substandard. This one has me considering that I won't return which is too bad because in it's inception it was great."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "I made a reservation for mother's day and was not told that mother's day was brunch only, no menu items served. In addition, I was not told that brunch was almost $30 per person. Most of the food on the lunch side of the brunch was not served at the correct temperature and the breakfast side of the brunch had a line that extended beyond the room the breakfast setup was in - this line was so long that people we walked into the restaurant with were still in line when we left. The desserts were bite-sized portions of "assorted desserts," and were also not at the correct temperature. One of the desserts was recognizable as creme brulee, but when you cracked the burnt sugar crust, the custard below was runny and had not set. We will not be back."

  • "Rib's on the starter menu were a meal by themselves. Plenty to share. The salmon salad was well prepared and tasty. Will definately go again. Did not notice if they do Sunday brunch, but if so, I'm in for it."

  • "Excellent food. We go there before every Rangers game and have the best meal."
    Dined on 4/20/2013
  • "The food was great The atmosphere was very energetic and loud, partly b/c of the game and the kitchen Wouldn't recommend for a date Not very romantic, hard to hear The wait staff was great, very attentive, they weren't busy so checked in pretty often The menu is not very big for food, huge wine/beer/drink selection I was say its like a upscale bar There is a private spot and outdoor seating that could be a little intimate if that's what your wanting"
    Dined on 4/6/2013
  • "This was of less quality than I hoped. Patio doors did not function and persons nearly fell on uneven brick and door where weather stripping was coming off and tailing on the floor. Our table was uneven - wobbled - the food was not replenished sufficiently at the buffet and it all tasted pretty much the same. We don't plan to return."

  • "I made a reservation for Easter brunch for our whole family based on a previous dining experience there. The dinner that I had with friends a few months ago was outstanding. The food was creative and delicious. The service and ambiance at the dinner was great. Unfortunately, we were all very disappointed with the ambiance, food and service at the brunch. The restaurant was loud, the food was just okay and our server disappeared for a long period of time while we sat looking for drink refills and syrup for my daughter's waffle...which we never did receive. It was not something I'd pay $28 per person for in the future. Based on my first experience, I will give Olenjack's another try for dinner, but I would not recommend it for brunch"
