We had a not so good experience
We had a not so good experience with food a couple of weeks back. This time we had a really nice time with food and service. I asked for a "nice" martini and he suggested a raspberry martini -- it was great. Also this time we tried small plates instead of entree. We enjoyed everything.

We came here for Mother's
We came here for Mother's Day brunch. It's a lovely place and the food and service are very good . But what we appreciated most was that, even though it was crowded, the tables were large and well spaced so we weren't on top of other diners. I would like to come back here for dinner sometime.

We went to the Inn at Brookeville because a favorite location was not open that evening. What a pleasant surprise. The menu was varied and the dishes we had were superb. My wife had the beef tenderloin and a salad, and I had the sea bass. We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and found ourselves in a private little area. We were able to talk without difficulty and enjoy each other's company. The Inn at Brookeville is on our list of places to return to.

I moved out of the area years ago, so I was at a loss when I had to find a handicap accessible restaurant for my father's birthday. The great service started when I called ahead to confirm logistics and continued through to the end of the meal. Our waitress made sure we were seated in a good spot with plenty of room for Dad's wheelchair. Our orders were taken promptly and served well. Towards the end of the meal, I asked for a little special birthday dessert w/ candle which was nicely accommodated and well-timed.
The food was excellent. I was expecting an overpriced ok meal; we got three really terrific lunches. We had the ribeye sandwich, crabcake sandwich and the chicken wrap. All were well cooked and freshly made.
Will go back here!

Quality Food in a Country Setting
At a time where quality restaurants are being replaced by national fast food chains, it is wonderful to find a place that has it all--a beautiful setting, great food, attentive service, and quiet (no loud kids screaming). As a plus this restaurants is affordable and not difficult to get a reservation. We loved the option of small plates so there is room for their fabulous desserts.

This was my second visit to Brookeville Farms. I went with a friend for brunch/lunch. I was concerned that our service might not be great as there was a wedding that day, and though the kitchen seemed a little slow, the service overall was excellent.
Food was fresh and very well prepared. Portion sizes were generous without being overwhelming.
The only thing I would caution diners about is the ambiance: don't expect a trendy place. It's a comfortable space, but chic it isn't. It is a great place to meet a friend for a chat over an unhurried meal.

Excellent for a special night out
The food was great for a special night out! Staff is some time thin but the food is incredible.

early Sunday dinner
Took my in-laws for Father's day dinner, not knowing that my MIL has been before with a group. 5pm reservation, so there were not many people there yet. Food was excellent, although I had to send my lamb back because it was over-cooked, but the replacement was fine. Absolutely loved the crab spring roll! One issue with sitting outside on the patio is that it is near some of the A/C compressors, so there was constant hum in the background - but not enough to affect conversation. Also, the patio is much more casual than the inside dining - iron tables & chairs, no table cloths. The wait-staff was attentive & knowledgeable about the menu. Will definitely return.

Inn at Brookeville Farms
Quaint, friendly neighborhood restaurant in an old farmhouse - think farm to table meets urban bistro
Note: for a suburban neighborhood haunt, tough to beat - not a NYC hot spot, but not trying to be either - refreshing!
Best dishes of the evening -
Appetizer: Maine Diver Scallops - grilled to perfection with a light dijonaise sauce on the side
Entree: Maryland Crab Cakes - pan sautéed with just enough binder to hold them together - fabulous
Dessert: Champagne Sorbet with Fresh Fruit - feather light and pallete cleansing

We had a group of nine family members celebrating a birthday and appreciated being seated in a separate area that allowed us some privacy. Our waiter was knowledgeable and personable. At first, the teenagers in our group were a little concerned about finding something they would like on the menu but the hamburger under "small plates" was fantastic--and anything but small. Several people in our group got the crab spring rolls and thought they were excellent. The rest of our meals were also delicious. Brookeville Inn turned out to be a great choice for our family celebration.

relaxing evening for two
Dinner is always a pleasant experience - good service and the mussels are always fresh and interestingly prepared.

Nice neighborhood restuarant
Tucked away in a Maryland suburb is a historic house turned restaurant. It has been a staple in Olney, Maryland for a good number of years now. It is what you expect in a historic house, lots of charm and warm temperatures in the summer; cool in the winters. The food is worth the trip. Fresh salads and seafood, excellent beef dishes. The guest is greeted warmly, and the meal begins with homemade biscuits. I'm a coffee drinker and enjoy the fact that they make a fresh brew just for me when I arrive. The Inn is a welcome change to the typical Brass and Glass and fast-food restaurants popping up all around. Maryland needs more Chef-owned restaurants! But at least in Olney, Maryland they have one!

I had chosen this spot to meet a friend for her birthday dinner because it was convenient. My husband and I had been there a few times several years ago and had been underimpressed, but geography ruled.
IT WAS FABULOUS! Our food was delicious, and very hot when approriate. It was gourmet, but not way out there. The service was fabulous. Jonathan was attentive, but not hovering. His suggestions were just right . We had a small room to ourselves and since we were having such a great time, that was just as well!
My husband and I will definitely try it out again.

Dinner was great!! Very impressed. I have lived here for about 20 years but have never been until this weekend. I will definetely be going back. We had a room to ourselves-a party of 8. Our waiter was very attentive and had great suggestions for us. It was really a very good experience!

So Few Like This Around Anymore!
Decided to enjoy Sunday - a " Breakfast Brunch" - lovely setting, both inside & out. Server attentive, without being overbearing. Home made , warm mini croissant a nice touch, soon after seated. Delicious. My husband VERY pleased with his order - I'm afraid mine was over done & I should have said something at the time. Have been here once before - all was most satisfactory. Like eating in a beautiful old home, landscaping nicely done - and very calming, that time on a Sunday morning! A wedding was to take place - quiote a few held here, and we were impressed with all the work they put into each event - to make that couple feel special.

Nice Setting, but...
Beautiful in a restored farmhouse that's now an Inn & restaurant. Staff is pleasant & well meaning, but do not seem trained in service. My husband & I are approaching our 60s, yet the food runners insisted on calling us guys. "Hey, guys how's your wine?" One of the food runners threw the soup in front of my husband and left, even though I was the one that had ordered that appetizer. The waiter was far more polished, but we saw less of him than of the runners and bus staff, so the untrained staff left the biggest impression. Our food was cooked from excellent ingredients, but the crabcakes were deep fried (unexpected) and unspiced (disappointing). The tenderloin was quite good, but the dish was quite basic.

We went on a Friday night and the place was pretty dead. This was nice because we had a whole room to ourselves. I had the Crab Spring Roll and my wife had the Corn Soup for an appetizer. Both were delicious and a great start to our meal. For an entree we both had the Fillet. The chef cooked it to perfection.
We planned for 2.5 hours for dinner. But since it was pretty dead, we were in and out within an hour. My wife and I didn't know what else to do in the area so we returned home early to the babysitter's surprise.

The Inn at Brookeville Farms
We really enjoyed dinner in this elegant mansion. The beautifully furnished small dining room enabled us to converse comfortably while enjoying our tasty martinis. The food was very special, starting with savory biscuits, puree of pumpkin/squash soup and an abundant salad. I had my eye on the scallop appetizer in lobster champagne sauce and was pleased that they could serve this as an entrée by increasing the number of scallops and adding steamed spinach and pureed cauliflower. My friend enjoyed her tasty crab cakes served on sautéed red cabbage. For dessert we shared the chocolate bombe with homemade orange ice cream and fresh fruits. A fabulous dining experience! No need to wait for a special occasion.

An Elegant experience
What a magnificent restaurant all around. The Inn itself is stunning. The food was superb as well as the service. They honored our reservation time on a busy Saturday night and the atmosphere for our party of four was intimate., not noisy or crowded. The food was prepared and served with care. The dinner was plated elegantly and served at a leisurely pace. We were made to feel special although it was our first visit. We all look forward to returning in the near future.

Great for family lunch
We had a late family lunch the day before Thanksgiving here and the restaurant was very quiet. However the food was very good and the personalized service was outstanding. We had our own room; the outdoors and location were very nice but we didnt explore.
This is our second visit and I would highly recommend.

Most Enjoyable Location
My close friend and I had a wonderful time at the Inn. The special menu for the day was so on target that we enjoyed the ambience as atmospheric and hospitable. We are definitely considering to make a future reservation for the Christmas holiday.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The cheese and sausage plate was a little unappealing and the rolls were not very good. However, the entree was excellent - quite possibly the best turkey breast I have ever had. The gravy was also excellent, quite light. I had the arugula salad which was delightful as was the spice cake. The service seemed a little inexperienced but they were so willing and cheerful that it was easy to give them the benefit of the doubt. I expect they put on extra help for the holiday. With just a little fine tuning they could easily improve the experience.

They nailed it. As we were
They nailed it. As we were leaving the restaurant, I walked up to people going in and recommended the lemon and pistachio cheesecake. I'll probably never have it again, but that one glorious time . . .
