While it was pouring buckets outside, we sat next to the fire place and enjoyed a really good meal. Thank you!

Great fresh food that appealed to all different tastes in our family. Service a bit slow but we still liked it so much we came back again.

Upon arrival to Blue Olive in peak season, we expected to be rushed in and out of the restaurant.

I've had the mushroom burger and the Earth pasta and it was divine! Will go back. The service was great and the trees make it a very cool and shady spot. Love the bathroom boys and girls sign as well!
