Good food...good service

Stopped in at this location while traveling. We have one close to home-so we trust the name. They did not disappoint. Our server (Rachel) was friendly, knowledgeable, & attentive. The food was very good (as usual). The spaghetti was fresh. The marinara was very tasty. The chicken Marsala was also... read more

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.

We arrived for a large party later in the evening because the Greene Turtle across the parking lot couldn't handle all the crowds in the area for the different athletic events. The service was good and friendly and everyone got what they ordered. You got breadsticks and salad with the meal which were good. As crazy as it sounds, I... More

I love the crab cakes here. The food is good but it is not cheap. I paid 33.00 for the two crab cake meal but it was enough food for two people. Great Quality and nice service.

We arrived for a large party later in the evening. The service was good and friendly and everyone got what they ordered. I actually liked the food here much better than the Olive Garden. I understand that they make their own pasta daily. The breadsticks actually tasted like bread and not an overwhelming taste of garlic. I ordered the pizza... More

We had lunch at the Olive Tree - their Cream of Crab soup was delicious and served hot as we like it. Their luncheon entrees of Chicken Piccata and Chicken Marsala were good and well portioned. We enjoyed it and would dine here again.

We were having problems finding a motel but got very lucky and stayed across the street and they recommended this one. It was really late but we had a wonderful meal. I had the manicotti and one friend has lasagna and the other one had veal Marsala and each one of us couldn't say enough about how good everything was.... More

We love the Olive Tree in Aberdeen. Consistently great food. The best crab cake anywhere. I repeat, ANYWHERE in the world. They know how to make an authentic Maryland Crab Cake right. On this visit I had an off menue special of blackened rockfish with lump crab, capers and shrimp over homemade penne, Awesome. We were there with a large... More

I recently was in Aberdeen for business with one of my colleagues and we were told to visit this restaurant for a nice Italian dinner and Sangria. It was a great choice! The salad and breadsticks were excellent and the portions were very large. Our waitress was extremely nice and attentive.
