This was our first time dining at The Olive. The menu offers a nice variety and all of the specials sounded delicious. We were a party of 3 and everyone loved their appetizer and entree's. We will definitely dine there again and would recommend.

The food was great. Nice portions and reasonably priced. The only knock I have is that it took an hour for basically chicken breast and pasta. I understand Saturday nights are busy, but an hour. When people who come in after you are getting their meals before you, it rubs me the wrong way. With that being said, I will give this place another chance because the food is really good!

Nice place and good food but we were in and out on about 45 minutes. Felt kind of rushed. Would recommend slowing it down slightly for indoor dining. Would have loved to try the dessert but with the courses coming out so FAST, there was no time to breath!

The restaurant at that time was not crowded so we felt comfortable. Two of us ordered the crab cake sandwich, large crab cake and loaded with crab. Our server was pleasant and attentive. It was a very enjoyable lunch. The desserts are worth it even if you have to take it home.

First time here and I can’t say enough about how delicious the food was! Starting with the bread sticks, salad and cream of broccoli soup it was so tasty. Our appetizer of crab cakes did not disappoint and it was lump crab ! Our entrees were broiled scallops (several huge scallops more than you get anywhere else) w fresh veggies, chicken & eggplant parm special w an amazing sauce and my daughter enjoyed her clams and linguine. Everything was VERY good ! The desserts are wonderfully delicious,as well, but we took them home because we were so full from the meal. There is no doubt I will be back multiple times and I believe this is my new favorite place. You must go try The Olive 🫒.

Went here to try a new place in the area with my wife. The food was fantastic and the quality and amount of food was well worth the prices. We’ll definitely be going back another time.

The Olive is a nice BYOB restaurant. Food was delicious and portions were quite large. They have a nice varied menu. Fantastic stuffed mushroom caps. Service was very attentive.
Would like to come back and try some of other menu selections.

Stopped in with my family on a busy Fri night. Portions are large. Food was served hot. Service a bit slow but no biggie. Love that it’s byob. It got crowded as the night went on & when we left at 8pm, they definitely were not sitting people 6 feet apart.

This is the third time I have gone, each time the food was delicious and cooked to perfection. I have not been able to finish it all yet because they do not skimp on the amount of food served. The service has been very good and always friendly. I plan on going there as much as possible and the best part is it is BYOB so I can take my favorite wine.

This was our first visit to The Olive since it took over from another restaurant that had closed. While the decor was the same it didn’t bother us since we realized that it saved the new operators lots of renovation costs! Glad to see them open during the pandemic.

Our server was very happy and helpful. Our meals were very good. My wife loved her scallops and I enjoyed my tuna. While the tuna was just a bit overdone it was still juicy and flavorful. The vegetables were a bit lacking. We had rice pudding for dessert and it’s wasn’t the best but not the worst either.

All in all it was a very nice meal and we will definitely be back in again! So much more to try! Here’s hoping that business picks up soon for all and that you do well!!

My cheesesteak was drenched in grease. A pool of it filled the plate. I mentioned it to the server and she didn't respond. I'm in so much pain from attempting to eat that greaseball of a sandwich. Still regurgitating it.

Our waitress was phenomenal! She had a great personality, very friendly, she was able to answer our questions and explain menu items. One of my biggest pet peeves, is to have an empty glass sitting in front of me and never did we have to ask for our drinks to be refilled. She was on top of everything. The food was great. We have had take-out on many occasions from The Olive but this was our first time eating in. We have not been disappointed and will be back over-and-over again!

Friendly and attentive staff. Delicious and warm breadsticks. Great variety on the menu. I forget the exact name of the dish I ordered- maybe Crabmeat Classico? But a generous portion of angel hair pasta, and lots of jumbo lump crabmeat. Excellent!! Dessert was a tough decision because so many wonderful items to choose from. We decided on the red velvet cheesecake and had no regrets. Able to split it and still bring some home with us. Can’t wait to go back and try some different items. Highly recommend!

2 COUPLES WERE THERE FOR DINER. 4 DIFFERENT MEALS ALL WERE ORDERED AND ALL WERE OUTSTANDING. WARM BREAD WAS A DELIGHT WITH THE EVOO AND FOR THOSE WHO WANT BUTTER NO NEED TO ASK FOR IT ALL READY IN BASKET. MY SEAFOOD PASTA IN WHITE WINE SAUCE WAS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD.
