We needed to eat somewhere since we got in the night of Easter for work and the front desk at our hotel said Olive Tree was the only place open. We stopped at a few other places to be sure, but that was the only place open on Easter night. It was not very busy, so we just went to... read more

We arrived at this restaurant at 5:30 on a Thursday night. We were greeted by the hostess and led to our seats. Unfortunately, in a three-quarters empty restaurant, the seats offered were among the worst in the house (right in the middle of all kitchen traffic). We requested and were led to another location and we were provided with menus.... More

I love this restaurant. This is way better than Olive Garden. I recently visited Olive Garden while on vacation and took one bite of the bread stick and said never again. My company uses all the time for holiday parties. I also have used the catering service for a personal party. The lunch menu is great and very reasonably price... More

My mouth was watering when I saw boneless ribs on the menu together with coconut shrimp and chicken alfredo. Unfortunately the ribs were dry and tasleless unlike the seasoned, tender meat I had envisioned and the chicken was dry and served with thick starchy fettuccine. Not a dish I would order again and not a restaurant I would seek out.

This restaurant was wonderful. The salad and breadsticks were so good ( even better than Olive Garden). I ordered the stuffed shells, my daughter ordered chicken parmesan and my mom ordered Alfredo. they were all delicious and HUGE portions. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The only thing that I don't like is that there is not one near... More

We stumbled upon the Olive Tree at least 10 years ago and have visited at least a dozen or so times over the years. There broiled crab cakes are the second best and only one slightly behind the Nick's at Dewey Beach. The fresh salad with the garlic bread sticks is still a good tradition here and am glad to...

The food used to be on part or better than Olive Garden but recently the quality has gone downhill fast! We have ordered lasagna party platters about 3 or 4 times in the last year and have been told to arrive at 5 PM only to sit around waiting for 30 minutes or more for our food. The reason? The...

Unassuming location and site BUT the food and the service - great barkeep/waiter: Ian, gave great reccomendations from the nightly specials list and they were great! He's a nice and thoughtful waiter. Fantastic crab cake, nice big complementary salad and really nice special of very lean and flavorful corned beef and cabbage.

Hadn't been there for a while sorry we went tonight. The food was fair, service fair, the remodeled made the space crowded and noisy. The meal wasn't worth the price we paid.
