Very good Italian fare

I stop in the Olive Tree for lunch 3-4 times a month because it's near APG, and the Olive Garden isn't. But that would be comparing apples and oranges. To start with, the Olive Tree's meat sauce is all beef, so it's kosher. That right there is enough to win me over. The last time I stopped in... read more

Ate at the Olive tree with co-workers for lunch, they offered 3 or 4 specials, plus a nice menu of Italian fare. The chicken parmesan was excellent as were the vegetables, the squash was cooked to perfection with a slight crunch. My friend had the crab cake sandwich and soup he stated they both were excellent. They also give you... More

We visited Olive Tree because it shared a parking lot with the Holiday Inn and they offered a $5 coupon. The menu was good and food portions generous. They offer unlimited salad and breadsticks which makes you think of Olive Garden, but not the same restaurant. Lots of pasta and seafood menu items - everything we ordered was good as... More

We dine here once or twice a year. We are never disappointed. They have an excellent selection of both Italian and seafood dishes. They have a nice selection of sangrias to choose from to compliment your meal. The tropical seemed to be the favorite at our table. The portions are good and priced appropriately. The servers are very efficient and... More

Great crab cakes. The cream of crab soup is excellent. Fresh salad and great dressing. The breadsticks were hot and fresh. Wait staff is very friendly. Clean restaurant. Worth the visit to eat here.

Sometimes the service can be a little slow, but the food is always great! Love the crab cake sandwich and the seafood fettuccine.

This restaurant accommodate our large party of about 17-20 people. The staff was friendly, the service was great, the food was exceptional. During our 4 day stay at Cal Ripkin, we chose to eat at this restaurant twice!

Olive tree is a classic 'olive' setting serving pasta and salad. Lunch portions include other generic items sandwich, wings, etc. Overall good meal but not great over the top. Not my personal choice but i wouldn't want to discourage anyone from visiting.
