Great place for a quiet lunch

Green Olive is conveniently located downtown. What I really like is that it is walking distance from anywhere downtown and great for quiet conversation or to meet with a small group and able to select from an enjoyable menu..

We visited this restaurant again (after a several year absence) and were startled at the prices on their menu. If we wanted to pay that much for a meal, we'd go where we could actually see out the windows and enjoy a view. Not many food customers so the slot machines created most of the customer traffic.

We recently visited the Green Olive as a family, for my wifes birthday. As always, the food was excellent and garnished with a friendly ambient atmosphere and hospitality. One of the best Family Restaurants in town.

We enjoyed the food at The Green Olive for our staff Christmas party on Dec 5th. The service was great, food was well prepared and tasty and the portions were huge. Many of us had enough for a meal the next day. Highly recommend the Chicken Marsala or Rib Eye Steak. Prices are very reasonable based on quality and quantity... More

As my caption hints at,hubby and I had our first date here and loved the ambience as well as the privacy of the booths.Very well decorated and warm fuzzy feeling as soon as you enter.The only reason I gave a four rating is due to them being so busy one time,our food appeared perhaps mid warm and not hot.The owners...

We have been to this restaurant a few times before even though the owner is one of the most irritating people we have ever met. She needs to retire! However, our server tonight was good. Not good enough to make up for cold food, over cooked steak (by over cooked, I mean I could barely cut my filet) and just... More

Ate here last night with a friend - and yes both of us are plus sized ladies. My friend simply asked if we could sit at the booth in the window and the hostess quite loudly announced that the table couldn't be moved and the seats were quite narrow as 2 booths were in that area back to back. This... More

We found if on the pricey side. Service was good. Had the lasagna and they used a spice in the sauce that did not taste good. Would not go back.

Visiting Brandon from the States on business, as always, I'm in search of good, local places to try. The chains are fine and have their place, but supporting locals is so important. A coworker could not sing The Green Olive's praises enough, and after experiencing for myself, I can see why. Though listed as a Greek restaurant, the menu features... More

First time! Found this great place with Trip Advisor and glad we did! We were greeted by a great lady with a great smile! Food was great and lots of it! Couldn't finish it all. Would recommend finding this hidden treasure off the beaten path!
