Won't be back

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.

My husband and I were en route from Connecticut to Georgia when we were sidelined at Aberdeen due to snow. We decided we needed a nice dinner. We chose olive tree -- big mistake. As we were trying to enjoy our meal (which by the way was just ok - nothing great) - management decided it was a good time... More

Can always count on a good meal. Salads and bread sticks are delicious. Great service. Their party trays are very reasonable and fresh. Feeds more than advertised. Wish they had areas for private parties or large parties in a separate area of the restaurant.

We didn't have reservations, but decided to try going to Olive Tree for dinner. We had a 40 minute wait, which was what the hostess predicted. Our server, Emily, was very friendly and attentive. We ordered the crab cake and the Shrimp Naples. Both were delicious. And their bottomless salad is very fresh and tasty, especially when the server adds... More

We went here on Valentine's day for an early dinner and we did beat the rush. Stuart ordered the stuffed shells and I got my old standby, eggplant parmigiano. The food arrived in a decent amount of time, but one problem...my eggplant had turned into a shrimp fettuccine, not what I wanted. I said that I thought I had ordered... More

We always stop at Olive Tree on way to Florida. Food is excellent and well served. Wine by glass filled to brim. My wife always gets the crab cake. I had grilled Shrimp Naples style which I highly recommend.. Portions are large and tasty. Service very nice also.

My sister and I and our husbands eat at Olive Tree every Sunday evening. Last night, we met our extended family there to celebrate my daughter-in-law's birthday. What a fiasco!!! The spaghetti and linguini was sticky, the sauces were tasteless and cool to the touch. The waitress was also trying to serve another party of fifty people in the same... More

Local sourcing of produce is one of the highlights of this local favorite. We've been many times while celebrating birthdays and family get-togethers. No one has complained. You can be seated in the bar amongst the many tv screens or in the quieter restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

We wanted crabcakes for a late lunch on New Year's Eve, so we decided to try Olive Tree again. Last time our service was bad and crabcakes were wet and gooey inside. This time everything was great!! We asked for our crabcakes fried and they were done all the way through. We also asked for extra butter on our breadsticks... More
