On Monday, April 10, I chaired meeting of about 15 retired educators at Olivia's. The meeting space was functional the food was excellent and the service was special. We were able to conduct our business in record time and had a great meal as well.

Saw the sign on the highway, so we stopped. Local family restaurant. Very good food, with inexpensive prices. We had the all you can eat broasted chicken, which was very good. Waitress was very friendly. We didn't try anything else, but I assume their standard...More

One of those local places that serves you a cup of soup with your meal. Pretty good beef and vegetable soup, actually. Tried the ribs and chicken with breasted potatoes. Didn't realize until they came out that they were beef ribs, but they were good,...More
