Good breakfast

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

Olympia is your typical diner w/some good fare. Visited this eatery on Monday, March 18th - St. Patrick's Day and ordered the corn beef and cabbage plate which came w/a small plate of chicken noodle soup. The soup was very non descriptive; it was made up of carrot, chicken, rice, and noodles. It needs a bit more colorful influence. The... More

We were visiting the area an stopped at this iconic diner. It was Saturday morning around 10:00 am and the parking lot was full. The 50's style diner has old time table side jukeboxes. It was like taking a step back in time. My husband had a Philly Steak omelet and I ordered a turkey club with fries. The omelet... More
