Olney Crab House is Now Open

by MCS Staff

Approximately 2.5 years after we first reported that Olney Crab House was coming to Olney, the restaurant has opened. It’s located at 18200 Georgia Avenue, the former site of the Olney Tavern in the Hillcrest Center in Olney. We are told the menu will consist of “steamed crab, steamed shrimp, crab soup, and a lot more.”

For a little background, renovations on the building began in the summer of 2020. The previous owners ended up backing out at some point in 2021, and the building remained dormant until the new tenants took over. In February, we were informed by the property management of the center that new owners had recently taken over the lease. It didn’t take long for them to get everything ready, as the restaurant is now open.

Restaurant hours:

Monday-Thursday: Noon-9pm

Friday-Saturday: Noon-10pm

Sunday: Noon-9pm

Phone number: 240.389.1181

We never visit a place right after it opens. Give it time to work out the kinks and see what others think of the food and service.

Well, someone has to go first – new places are usually very grateful for suggestions, and you get to help them succeed.
