Wow so sad that this Newington staple has gone to shame. Went for lunch with two friends and was so grossed out by the filth in this restaurant. Food on the floor, grimy tables and walls. Will never return.

A simple lunch with beverage turned into a trip down memory lane. I had not been to the Olympia for years if not decades. It is still the real deal,clean and efficient. Tina was great very pleasant to speak with and attentive. The burger and fries wastage and done to my request.

I have lived in this area of CT for the better part of 46 years. My "relationship" with the Olympia Diner was filled with many pleasant memories. I have always "judged" other Diners by the "standard" of the Olympia. This most recent visit, after being away many years, was a bit disappointing. All 3 at my table had different items,... More

I certainly want to give the Olympia Diner a chance yet after every visit I just get frustrated and wonder why I came back. Sure standard breakfast is okay as are the burgers and some sandwiches. But today I chose the $8.95 stuffed cabbage special. Total disappointment. Inside the cabbage leaves was 85% rice, 10% spices then 5% meat. The... 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.

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 nearly $12... More

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.
