Went here with my family a few weeks ago. To start off, the service is great - friendly, informative, fast. We tried four different dishes: chicken parmesan, meatball sub, gyro and pancakes. My gyro was one of the best I've had locally - nice, fresh gyro (lamb and beef combo, I think) meat, fresh tomato and onion mix and delicious... More

This was my very first time coming to this place. I felt like I was stepping back in time, everyone I know has been here so I figured it's about time. I had the best gyro I ever had and my friend had the Greek omelet. Perfect portions and you won't leave hungry, plus good service. If you haven't been... More

Just by looking at it, you know there's home cooking! Typical vast variety and good portions. I especially like to support mom n pop shops, especially to preserve the retro silver bullet diners! Enjoy!

Good place any time of day. Open 6:00am to midnight. Nice homey dinner specials. Decent prices. Friendly staff. If you are visiting from out of the country, this is a true bit of Americana.

Needed to eat breakfast around noon and was able to feed the famil here. Fast, efficient, friendly, great service. Full breakfast compliment available any time. Son orders corned beef hash and it was amazing, probably the best I ever tasted as it was light, crusty finish, not greasy, ver satisfying. We all tasted it and agreed this healthy sized serving...

I was so excited to have breakfast at Olympia at dinner time, but my advise for others is DON'T! By 6 pm everything tastes a little old, like the grease on the grill. I had corned beef hash, sunny side eggs, rye toast, hash browns and OJ, and let me tell you, the hashbrowns were the highlight of the meal.... More

I enjoyed eating at this place. The menu offers a lot to choose from. The food I have had here has very good. It seems to be like by many others since I had to wait 5 minutes to get a seat...well worth the wait. It has plenty of parking and seating. It's very clean and everyone was friendly. I... More

Always see a lot of cars at this diner and finally had a chance to eat lunch there. It's really nothing special. The staff is average as is the food. It is a decent meal at a reasonable price, nothing more, nothing less.
