Old Maryland Grill is a great addition to College Park, MD. The University of Maryland finally has a lovely spot for lunches, dinners, and weekend brunch. The cuisine creatively uses local ingredients to serve the tastes of the Chesapeake Bay area in beautifully presented dishes. Owner Mike Franklin is a friendly host who will likely stop by your table to say hello. Be sure to finish your meal with an excellent cappucchino.

Loved the oysters, trout and skate also the cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Soup was salty and missing crab. I would return; not the greatest value but a good and much needed restaurant

Our server was quite good and very attentive. The food was delicious. The ambiance was great. the surroundings are impressive. The layout of the restaurant and bar are complimentary, and function quite well together. The staff is unfailingly friendly. We were able to converse with friends easily. I find the food prices a little high, but worth it to have an option of this caliber.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Old Maryland Grill. The skate wing and bluefish were well-prepared with excellent sides. We appreciated the wide selection of wine by the glass, and recommend that the number of ounces per half-serving and full serving of wine be stated. The noise emanating from the group in the bar area detracted slightly from the overall ambience. We will be back!!

I visited the restaurant on a Monday evening. As I peered in from the street it appeared to be closed because the front dining room was completely empty. As I entered I was cheerfully greeted by staff and seated to wait for my guest. My waitress was very friendly and helpful, however she did take a bit long coming back and forth to our table, especially since the place was virtually empty. I ordered crab imperial and broccolini. My friend ordered fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Aside from the gravy, she enjoyed her meal. I on the other hand did not. My broccolini was room temperature and topped with cold ricotta and I had to fish for crab meat in the mustardy crab imperial. I also ordered a drink and then informed they didn't have all the ingredients necessary. Again, something I wouldn't expect at and empty restaurant in the beginning of the week. I was first offered a free dessert, which I declined, however my friend took advantage. My food was ultimately removed from my bill without me even asking. I appreciated that and again the waitress was really nice, the ambiance even better, but my meal was very disappointing.

Great selection of MD craft beer and MD wine. Very friendly staff. Note a number of items on menu were in fact gluten free though it was not indicated. Demerit for locked door from parking lot to hotel, not very welcoming.

Hotel is gorgeous. Restaurant is beautiful. Employees were nice. Food was very good. Unfortunately, missed the mark on the 2 most important things for any high end Maryland restaurant: crab cakes and crab soup. Neither were made with lump crab meat. The crab cakes were mush. The crab soup was made with stringy barely visible crab meat. The soup was not the white cream-based lump crab meat version. As University of the Maryland is the flag ship school of Maryland, restaurant patrons should be treated to authentic Maryland crab cakes and crab soup. Buttermilk pancakes, ribeye steak, raw oysters, and ham and biscuits were perfection! Moscow mule was watered down. Little flies swarmed around and in our food as we ate. Waitress was very sweet but didn't offer a bag for our many to go boxes and put all of our eating utensils in the bare table. I had to got to the restaurant manager myself to expressed my concerns. He was very nice and professional and informed me that he has been working to identify the source of the fly problem. Got home and received notice from Open Table that I was a no-show at the restaurant so, as I felt, when I arrived to the restaurant, the hostesses didn't know how to handle my Open Table reservation. There is a revitalization on Route 1 and Greenbelt Road due half million dollar homes, the new Whole Foods, and a new town center. I hope management takes training the staff on service and quality seriously so that this can be on par with 4 star DC venues. Pleas don't take the community for granted and dole out average service and quality because you are located in PG County or you will struggle to attract the global tourists to maintain the expense of this beautiful high end hotel and the amenities like the upcoming Red Door Spa. I want to host my events and meetings here but having good food and service is critical. I want you to succeed...please hire a restaurant consultant and get it together!

While previous reviewers have noted poor service, we had EXCELLENT service, including a nice chat with the Owner, Mike Franklin, who stopped by the table. Food was delicious. Considering how 'young' the restaurant is, we were very pleased. All staff was friendly, attentive and accommodating. We will definitely be back again for dinner some time. Do not let its location in /adjacent to a hotel deter you. This is most definitely NOT a standard 'hotel restaurant'.

This was my fourth time eating at this restaurant. The food itself is good however, if I am paying $17 for an Oyster roll, I would like more than three oysters! If it costs more to deliver an adequate portion (possibly six oysters) to diners, then, raise the prices accordingly.

This was our first visit to OMG. We found it often an OpenTable search for places to have Christmas dinner. We wanted to treat our mom to a holi-day off. It was hit for all four people in our party including mom! (A Christmas miracle!) We liked the classy casual vibe and the service was excellent. The food was amazing, and the local sourcing impressive. The beet salad, prime rib, and crab cakes were very good. We will be going back and have already recommended OMG to friends.

For the first time in 25 plus year we were able to have our Christmas Eve dinner locally (College Park) rather than go into DC thanks to Mike Franklin’s Old Maryland Grill. The evening couldn’t have been more perfect with stellar service and everyone’s meal was absolutely delicious. We highly recommend OMG for any occasion-lunch, causal dinner or celebrations -its a refreshing much needed welcomed addition to the area.

This restaurant is obviously new and makes the mistakes that come from inexperience. After taking orders the server doesn't check the food delivery. When the desserts were served we had to remind the server for flatware. The cappuccinos we ordered were barely warm. A coffee was served without a saucer. I did not eat my dessert because it was terrible but that was not taken off the bill. These are faults caused by inattention of the server staff.

We came with a party of four for a Christmas lunch from work. Food was good and we ordered dessert and coffees. My boss ordered a latte. When done he asked for a coffee refill and was told that a coffee would be an extra charge. SO, after spending almost $300 on the meal, they would not come up off a cup of coffee for my boss until we complained to management. We felt that if you order any type of a coffee, you should have a free refill. Also, the service was a little slow considering the place was not busy at all. And the sinks in the bathrooms were trying, you were barely able to rinse your hands. Do not think we will be coming back here.

This is a new high end restaurant in College Park. Our experience was good, not great, like we would expect when paying $38 for a crab cake. The wait staff was not up to my expectations for a higher end restaurant. But the location is wonderful, menu is pretty good, and The Hotel makes it a convenient place to eat right across fro the UMD campus. With some time I would expect OMG to grow and become a wonderful dining experience.

Our daughter graduated this week from University of Maryland and we stayed at The Hotel overnight and dined at Old Maryland Grill. Our server was excellent, our dinners came out in a timely manner and everything was delicious! We had the Rockfish, the Crab Cakes (no fillers!), Skater Steak and two vegetarian dishes with bechmel sauce that was amazing!
The owner stopped by and we enjoyed talking to him about where in Maryland he gets the different foods for the menu. An overall pleasant evening as we celebrated our special occasion. Would highly recommend but beware, it is a bit pricey!

Larger crab cakes than we had on the two previous visits. Good selection of oysters. Good service by McKenna. Mashed potatoes also good. Even the cole slaw was good

Brunch meal was very enjoyable, particularly the St. Mary's County Stuffed Ham Sandwich and the Maryland Crab Soup. The chicken was deliciously crispy although the biscuits were a bit salty (ask for a side of honey!) I'll agree with Tom Sietsema's review that the staff was VERY green. They missed several opportunities to clear used dishware off the table and mixed up one guest's order, but most errors were quickly rectified. The menu has a wonderful selection and I would return for dinner as well.

The food is B-plus/A-minus, the service is C-minus. The space is quite nice (and huge), and refreshingly quiet, and the local ingredients and creative wine / cocktail list are both impressive. There's a lot of potential here.

But the service, as others have noted, is quite dreadful at this point. We waited a long time for anyone to stop by, after being seated. Then we waited a long time for our drinks, and again a long time for our order — our waitress vanished for long stretches, though the place was hardly full. The place is quite overpriced, especially given the service hitches.

I had the crab cakes, which were superb, but the accompanying fries were burned, and some okay cole slaw. The local wine was fine. My wife liked her fried chicken and the portion was massive.

I asked for coffee afterwards but got not cream or sugar; once those were delivered, I still had no spoon to stir it with. We read later that some desserts are excellent, but our waitress did not offer a desert menu. We noticed the couple next to us also having problems —getting flat champagne, getting the wrong sauces.

This is the significantly upscale version of Franklin's, down the street. Franklin's is also overpriced, for bar food, and now this restaurant is overpriced for decent — but hardly three-star —food. The service is MUCH better at Franklin's. Perhaps they should switch staffs?

Restaurant decor was inviting with booths around the perimeter and tables in the center. Service was somewhat lacking, our server acted like she didn't want to be there and she messed up or forgot our orders multiple times. The food while attractive was heavy on the salt. Two of our steaks (one of which wasn't what was ordered), the lemon grass broth under the rockfish, and the boardwalk fries were all super salty. I like to taste the salt in my food but damn. They did take the misordered steak off the bill so kudos to management.

Delicious entrees and wonderful side dishes ... The kale was a bit bitter but everything else was great ... The servings are big! I had a trio of side dishes and the crab imperial appetizer and took two of the side dishes home. My husband's cat fish was enormous and we took half his entree home as well. We will come again ... Maybe there could be a fresh fruit dessert as well as the baked goods? Everyone likes dessert but a big slice of cake is just too much after eating the entrees.
