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

Disclosure: I came here for a banquet meal so didn't order off the menu. The food was good, considering it was served buffet style to about 100 attending the event. The sauces and flavors were good, although the chicken a bit dry. The rest of the restaurant seemed homey and comfortable. Parking was tight, and it did feel cramped all... More

We had a group of 60 or so family members dine here after a family member's funeral. The service there was wonderful and we had a buffet arranged with the management prior to our dining. Drink orders were taken and then a crisp salad and warm bread sticks were served. Then w from the buffet we were served lasagna, shrimp... More

My family has been here often and I have to say it's very hit or miss. Sometimes we get 5 star impeccable service and sometimes we feel like we are bothering the waitress. The food, however, is always good.
