Olympians serves a combination of Italian and Greek food. I am rather partial to the Greek offerings such as pastitsio and spinach pie. The pizza is also very good. All entrees are reasonably priced. The service is very good, and the atmosphere is casual and family friendly. I highly recommend this place if you are in the mood for Greek... More

They have a lot of options, everything from pizza, to spaghetti, to gyros, and so forth. All of it is decent, but nothing I would say it outstanding. Good, but not great.

The restaurant is in a strip mall complex where parking can be hard to fine. The restaurant decor is dated but the food and service make up for it. The staff is terrific and service is efficient and quick. The gyro sandwich is the best I have had in a long time. The tzatziki sauce is fabulous. The portions are... More

I had the calamari appetizer special. It was cooked just right nice and tender. I followed up with a crab cake that had minimal filler. It was great. I can say the same for the service. I would come again for sure.

This is the most authentic, tasty Greek cuisine i've found in the USA. My wife and I love Greek food and have a high standard from living in Europe. The tzatziki is incredible and the baklava was fresh and delicious. Now that we know about this place we will be back all of the time!

Excellent sandwiches with large portions for the money. Love the ham and cheese, turkey, or chicken parm subs. Pizza is good, although in this area, great pizza is hard to come by. My favorite local greek diner.

We love this place. Friendly staff. Great food and deserts. I could eat here everyday. Gyros and chicken Slovakia are my favorites but vowed to try the pizza next time or mixed grill.

The Olympians typically is a reilable Greek/Italian/American standby but I was very disappointed with my last meal. I ordered a hot pastrami sandwich on toasted rye with brown mustard. Period. That's exactly what my waitress wrote on her order sheet. But instead, I was served a hot pastrami sandwich with shaved lettuce, tomato, and MAYONAISSE -- an abomination! Either the... More

First time to this restaurant and the pork souvlaki was the best I'd ever had and the service was top notch. Thank you!
