New menu at least to us simce last year

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... read more

We love this restaurant. The personnel are very friendly, and the food is great. We've be going there for a long time and will in the future.

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.

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
