The crab cakes are the best thing on the menu. Vegetables come from cans and not fresh. Could be better. I think they are over priced for what you are eating. Always busy, I am guessing most people don't care.

Large party with reservation attempted to have meal at the restaurant. Must say I think the servers tried their best, but were set up for failure having to serve about twenty people and no assistance provide by manager. Service wasn't the greatest, but not the fault of servers. Food slow to come out, wrong items served and food was not... More

Had a large group with children, staff helpful and even seats us before entire party was there so our grandmother could sit down. All you care to eat salad and breadsticks were wonderful, loved the salad dressing! Almost everyone got the crab cakes and they were amazing- very little filler.

Pleasant diner-like decor with superb service and great food. If the crab cake isn't the best in the state it must be in the top 3. Meaty and fresh with the right amount of seasoning. Delicious. Friend raved about the angus beef burger. Maryland crab soup was also great. Everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly. Worth the diversion off the... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch. It was very drab on the outside but we thought it would be better on the inside. Not so.

A client took me and a couple of colleagues to dinner on a Wednesday night around 6:30. The six of us were seated at a table and were quickly greeted by our waitress, who took our drink order. She was amiable and pleasant, and when she came back with drinks we ordered appetizers. We got two orders of oysters on... More

This is not the widely known chain, it is a family style restaurant that also has unlimited salad and breadsticks. It has large delicious selections - our favorites include Chicken Parmesan, Eggplant, Lasagna, and many others. It is hard to save room for dessert but they have wonderful selections (so take one home?).

The first place I went to couldn't accept credit cards so I went here as a second choice. I'm glad I did as it was good food. I got the cream of crab soup to start and it was really good. Almost always when I go Italian, I eat Chicken Parm. I'm not a particularly adventurous eater and I'm not... More

I used to frequent the Olive Grove some 15-20 years ago and was excited about visiting the place again. I was pleased to discover that things are the way I remembered: the service was attentive and friendly, the food (bread sticks!) was tasty and serving sizes generous. However, the place has got really dated (carpet!) and in my view needs... More
