Great food, not so great prices.

This is a quaint, old fashioned diner. My children were thrilled to eat here. The food was excellent, and you get a good sized portion, but I felt it was a little pricey for the items on the menu. My son ordered a corned beef hash omelet (yes, the hash is inside the omelet), and the meal cost... read more

The Olympia Diner is a staple of the Newington community. Offers a very diverse menu with an old-fashion diner atmosphere. Perfect for families or even a quiet date night.

True diner atmosphere right down to the juke boxes at each booth. The food was good, a little too spicy on home fries to our liking though. My husband liked that he could get fruit instead of potatoes.

The food was very good and the atmosphere was old world charm. The service was good. The portions are well worth the money. It is priced just right. We have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner times. Can not go wrong here.

This place is so cool, i love how it has kept the old diner feeling. There are not any places around like this at all. The food is great and service rocks. I love the history behind this place, it is a staple in the neighborhood.

I've been a customer since the mid-70's. This Connecticut icon is worth the stop if your hungry, passing thru, and want a home cooked style meal. For me the best time to go is late late night, or at 3:00 in the morning. Just seems that the place is/has this....Aura about it at late hours. All meals are good, and... More

This restaurant appears to be a typical diner . Not so. Dirty tables and floors. Not clean at all. The food was just blah. Overcooked burger, club sandwich and breakfast that were barely just ok. Will not return.

There is nothing to say good about this place. Everything was terrible. We had sandwiches and soup. The worst ever.

If you're anywhere near the Berlin Turnpike, the Olympia Diner is a great choice for any meal. I took five guys there and we sat at the counter on the rotating stools, like truck drivers on Route 66 fifty years ago. The juke boxes on the counter still work. The chrome is shiny. The coffee is piping hot. It's like... More
