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

The four of us were out shopping in the area and stopped in at the diner for lunch. It is much bigger than it looks from the outside. We went inside and were offered more room in the back room. That was great. The waiter was wonderful. He was there whenever we wanted something. My order was good. I had... More

This is the second time that we have eaten here; it is about 40 miles from our house. This is a very large diner - - which is very good because every time we drive by this place the parking lot is full. This time we had simple bacon and eggs with toast and home fries. It is what you... More

For the first time in many, many years, I had the opportunity tonight to stop in at this iconic eatery on the Berlin Turnpike. College memories emerged as I recalled those late night visits when we would descend upon the Olympia Diner in the wee hours of the morning in varying states of sobriety. That was 37 years ago, and... More
