We drive by Oliver's every morning, early. It's small A-Frame construction with BIG picture windows across the front are dark, and there is the soft glow of some strings of Christmas lights, and in the back the emergency night lights burn away the dark morning. We could not figure out what sort of a place it was, so we decided... More

We went to listen to live music with friends. While the venue may not be ideal, the staff was very accommodating and the food was excellent. If you're expecting 5-star gourmet ambiance, this is not the place for you. If you want good food (try the date appetizer. Seriously!) and an attentive staff, this place is worth considering.

A cozy place for dinner. Our first visit and it was a large party (15). Seating was tight but the staff was friendly and gracious. We had a preselected menu and the food was good and seemed home style, fresh. I would go back for happy hour the next time we are in Portland . Olivers is a 20 min... More

We have been here many times and will come back many more. Becky sells really nice wines at reasonable prices. The steak is always cooked perfectly. I love the beet salad. My husband loves the stuffed dates and eats them for dessert. We love the pork chops. It's always very welcoming. It feels so comfortable but at night it can... More

The owner is very friendly and a great cook. Has a Variety of food at fair prices with excellent happy hour. Great home style cooking like pot pie that can be shared with a friend.

The atmosphere is a little suspect. The food was surprisingly good. It was a pleasant surprise considering we were not expecting it. We did not have a waitress/waiter, but one of the customers--Karen--was even better. Imagine a mac & cheese that table mates were excited about!! Just close your eyes and go in. Try an appetizer and then dive in.

What a great neighborhood restaurant. We've been there for an early dinner and now they are serving breakfast on the weekends. The menu is an interesting mix of comfort food (the best biscuits and homemade gravy in town) and more trendy dishes with complex favors. All the meals are made from scratch so order a glass of wine and relax... More

Steak was waaay overcooked, food overall was just okay. Not great value. Outside chairs not really comfortable, and street noise was moderately high. Service was friendly. We went once and have no desire to return, was hoping it would be a nice neighborhood place.

This little place is such a great neighborhood restaurant. It's a small place, but it's very nicely done with cool lighting and a fun atmosphere. They do have a very good selection of wine and it has a nice sit-down bar for about seven people if you want to just go in and have a quick drink and an appetizer.... More

Went here for dinner last Friday evening - glad we went and GLAD we went early as it did fill up. We were a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed their meal. I shared my blue cheese burger and oven fries with my bf's and got to share his verde enchilada. Both were very good. I was envious of the... More
