We went to "Blue Olive" on my husband's birthday and had a great evening. The mini seafood platter and mini meat platter were very tasty and interesting. Aiden's cheesecake was superb! Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. I would certainly return. Phil and Sue Millard, Wilderness

Perfect location in the hustle and buzzle of the energy of this little town. Although very relaxed, excellent food and awesome spot for sundowners and lovely seafood platters.
