Seabass was on point. Service was good, had to park pretty far away though.

We looked at the website before coming and my kids were excited about cool drawing sheets and play dough at the table, but neither was offered and eventually I asked for drawing sheets. My kids were definitely disappointed by the lack of play dough. We did love the char "fruit" erie! The food was good but all three of us adults thought our different entrees were overly salted.

Wonderful food from the appetizer and drinks, onto the main course (Marksbury Farm Pork Chop was the best I have ever had), and the berry cobbler was delicious.

The food, which I think is the same menu as Eppings in the same building, was excellent. Tomato soup was delicious and the chopped salad was perfectly dressed. Husband very pleased with the fish and chips. We definitely will be back.

Dinner was good as always and I really love to take guests here. Service was slow and spotty this evening. Additionally, the menu has been redone and I am bummed the chicken sandwich and burger are missing in action!

We loved Poppy and Olive! Char"fruit"erie appetizer was perfect for our young children and the kids menu was simple but delivered delicious food! Even though it was quite busy, we were seated immediately and our food was brought to us within minutes of ordering - very helpful with two busy children in tow. We will certainly return!

Delicious food and drinks. It wasn’t so busy that evening and so it was quiet for our 10 month old son. He loved the food too!

This was our first visit, the food was good but the service was NOT. I ordered an appetizer and the wrong one was brought out then I ordered dessert and it never arrived. Very disappointed.

Our experience at Poppy & Olive started off pleasantly - my young kids were delighted with the coloring pages and playdough (not to mention the pint sized potty). The decor and ambiance were aesthetically pleasing and even calming. Then about 15-20 minutes in we were asked to switch tables to make room for a larger party...that didn't even show up for almost 45 minutes (as we were paying). It sounds trivial, but it was disruptive to our experience to move from a cozy booth to a much smaller table with metal chairs. I don't think I've ever been asked to switch tables before. I was a hostess once upon a time and I don't think I would have asked patrons to do so, either. The manager comped our soup and salad for our trouble, but it was little consolation as the soup was bland and we had to send the salad back (we asked for no feta, but there it was). The service was slow and inattentive. By the time I was asked if I wanted another drink, it was too far into our meal. My husband wasn't crazy about his scallops. I had the salmon and enjoyed it. Of course our kids liked the grilled cheese and fries. Overall, not terrible but not great. I would give Epping's/Poppy & Olive another chance, just not at my suggestion.

We really enjoyed it. We were prepared for the family atmosphere but didn’t have any small children with us. Most of the families left halfway through our meal, but the noise level was still a little high after they left. Food was excellent. Our server was good-could have been a tad more attentive and was too soft spoken.
