When my husband turned into this place, I wanted him to pull back out. I thought it looked like fast food or a drive through. The inside of the restaurant isn't fancy either BUT the food is fabulous, the service is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The menu was so extensive that I kept changing my mind about...

I have eaten there a few times. Always had a great meal and a nice atmosphere. Greek music lightly in the back round. Will return again & again.

Went with partner and a friend. We had stuffed grape leaves , stuffed peppers, mousaka and pistachio. Everything was absolutely fabulous. The staff are so welcoming too. Breakfast is also the very best! Have to try it! Definitely worth it

We called ahead to order two of their fried seafood dinners to take home. Generous portions of fish, shrimp, large scallops, and clam strips. Came with veggies, baked potatoes, and two portions of clam chowder, plus sour cream, tartar sauce, and cocktail sauce. Ample for us for three days and we still haven't consumed the chowders. This is a popular... More

For years we visit this restaurant weekly with a group of friends. The food and the service has been consistently slipping. Lately, every visit has had a mistake in the order or a poorly prepared item. On this most recent visit. I ordered eggs, meat, toast. The eggs arrived without the meat or toast. The waitress went back to the... More

This is a long-standing restaurant on the west end of Bradenton. The Greek dishes are exceptional and, surprisingly, they have the best spaghetti sauce and meatballs around. It is always busy, clean and friendly staff.

Ask the staff what they recommend - and go with it! Our waitress (Ruth) was SPOT ON suggesting items from the menu. Our group of 4 each got something different and were all very satified.

The Olympic Cafe has not only wonderful Greek food, but many options. I particularly like the lamb shank. We were in Bradenton for a month, and ate there 3 times. The prices are very reasonable, and the service is great. And who doesn't like a glass of wine for $3.50! It can't be beat for a local restaurant. It is... More
